Every time my wife brought up the idea of cruising for A vacation I was quick to dismiss it , not being a fan of boats or confinement such as resorts . After reviewing excursions and reviews I gave a second look at this itinerary and the value was the final deal maker .
We found it a bit overwhelming as we boarded , the fantastic crew of the splendor quickly eased that ,we have never been that well looked after or entertained . talking to others while waiting to board they said they been on other ships but none compared to the splendor and they continue to book on her now and we'd be happy with her as our first .
The food was fantastic and available 24/7
I highly recommend it and can't wait to go again , Although I would like to visit different ports next time I would do these again, my favorite was Belize and Rotan.
The excursions on this itinerary were fantastic , although they were most of the day they went by very quick .

To travel from aft to fwd the easiest way I found was to drop to 2 deck walk the length of the hall and return to the deck you want , some decks have no thru acess , also good way to avoid the smoky casino area .
