Splendour of the Seas

January 2014 - Splendour of the Seas to South America

Good Cruise, extra required costs for US travelers for tourist visa for Brazil and reciprocity fee for Argentina

Decent cruise, I am from the USA I was disappointed that Royal Caribbean did not tell us that a $160 per person tourist visa was required just to board the plane to fly to Brazil.  We also had a $160 per person reciprocity fee for Argentina, we found this out at the port.  The cruise staff was awesome as usual.  Only about 28 out of 2000 passengers spoke English but most of the cruise staff spoke English so language wasn't a barrier at all.  We were able to take all of our excursions with an English speaking tour guide.  Mostly Brazilian passengers and they were very friendly.  I didn't like waiting in line to enter the Windjammer cafe, this is the first time I have ever experienced lines for meals on a cruise.  The food was a 6 out of 10, like eating at Ryan's or Golden Corral buffet for a week, even in the fancier dining rooms.  The food was not bad but not great.  Overall this was an easy affordable way to explore several South American countries.  I would recommend this cruise to others
