Splendour of the Seas

May 2013 - Splendour of the Seas to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

After You're All Paid Up: BRING LOTS OF EXTRA MONEY!

After a few "upgrades," "mandatory 'gratuities', the additional beverage "options" and excluded costs for after-dinner coffee this vacation ended up costing nearly double the advertised,"incentive" price. Should you desire a spa treatment, not unusual whilst on holiday, you will have to sell your first born child....and beware, they'll want to sell you a soothing gel for an additional $55. For those so inclined, a "behind the scenes" tour of the ship's inner workings was available for the mere price of $150. per person; These costs, when added to airfare made this a very expensive vacation. Worse than the cost was the fact that the experience was tantamount to being held prisoner in a two-star, floating hotel with each night's "entertainment" like a bad wedding reception at the VFW. (This comment is NOT meant to be an insult to the VFW!) Finally, each morning we were assaulted by a cast of crew members whose sole purpose was to sell beverage packages for bottled water. Really, people!?!?!?! I was never so happy for it all to END! The only thing to recommend this experience was the atttentive and friendly staff!

Splendour of the Seas Splendour of the Seas - There are no "lines" for The Windjammer Cafe; it's shear chaos and man-eat-man....good manners are not well taught, apparently.
