Review Summary

We had a great time on the splendor. Fun ship, good entertainment. Natalie in the piano bar was awesome. A couple issues we had. Room svc. Is spotty at best. They forgot our food/coffee 3 of the times we ordered. We had to call back a few times after waiting over an hour for a pot of coffee. I also ordered a birthday decor in the room for my wife. Since our breakfast was an hour late we were still in the room and all we got was a card. After an argument with the desk I did get a refund. Other than that the service staff in the dining hall was incredible, cruise director was funny and always available. Bartenders around pool area were available but not pushy as Ive experienced in the past. Great Great trip. Going back in February.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
anyone who said ship needs update needs to remember the age range is from 5 to 105. you have to appeal to masses

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Balcony was a mistake because now I can never get another inside stateroom again. It was beautiful, comfortable, spacious. And the view every morning and evening couldnt be beaten

Ship Tip

Buy the pre paid drink options for anyone who plans on having a few heavy drinking days. The pre paid soda option is not worth it unless you plan to bring your own bottle of liquer on board.
