A few issues but a great time

Sail Date: April 19, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

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
anyone who said ship needs update needs to remember the age range is from 5 to 105. you have to appeal to masses
Food and Dining
buffets were average and a bit greasy. dining room was fun and food was good
Service and Staff
our servers in Golden pearl were outstanding.
shows and movies were fun....comedy clup was cramped, too small, and honestly comedians were not that good this time
Onboard Activities
if you have never played mini golf in a hurricane at midnight while have to try it
Destinations and Excursions
snorkeling and sting rey petting is amazing in Grand Cayman. DO NOT book with cruise line, groups are huge. book private. we had 6 people on our boat it was intimate and not overcrouded. and half the price
Cabin / Stateroom
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
Miami, Florida
very organized, way better than port Canaveral
Cozumel, Mexico
Did a mayan tour, was very old, no pyramids, nice history but not epic
Belize City, Belize
the Mayan ruin/Wallace River tour was amazing....Bring sunblock
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras never made port, weather did not permit
George Town, Grand Cayman
DONT BUY ANYTHING shops are crazy expensive, book excursion with locals not ship. cheaper and smaller with same tours


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.
