Splendor was somewhat splendid.

Sail Date: May 16, 2015

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The shows were amazing. 'Vroom' was more than what I expected and very entertaining. The food in the main dining room was delicious and the steak was the most tender cut of meat which I'd gladly compare to any 5 star restaurant. Sadly, on the second night it wasn't listed as a 'choice' so I paid an additional $20 for the surf & turf which was overcooked and less flavor than the 'included' steak from the night before. Room service was quick and efficient for those late night cravings and lots of choices to choose from. Our balcony stateroom was perfect and very quiet with the most comfortable beds. The negatives- breakfast in the buffet was terrible and the bacon was inedible. Our server in the main dining room was rude and only spoke to the men at the table. I understand in some cultures to look down upon the females but he needs to realize that he is serving all nationalities and in the USA we are treated equally. Overall this ship was fun with lots to do onboard and the Casino was paying out with a lot of happy winners onboard.

Cabin / Stateroom
Quiet- great views. Great beds. Easy to navigate the ship quickly without a lot of extra walking.


Don't spend the additonal money for the surf & turf in the main dining room. It wasn't worth the extra $20. The food on the menu was delicious.
