Splendid Splendor

Sail Date: December 06, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

This has been rhe largest ship I have sailed on to date.  For a large ship, most of the time we felt rhe staff and crew gave it a small ship feel.   There were only a few times where the ship felt crowded.  The staff was very personable and friendly.  There was only once where we werent addressed by our first names.  Before sailing we purchased the Faster to the Fun package for both of our staterooms.  I highly recommend this if you are not a Platinum or Diamond member.  Check in is faster, boarding is faster, rooms and luggage is faster, getting to tenders is faster, amd even disembarkation is faster and smoother.  We were able to unpack and unwind before the muster drill which was a first.  Most of the other guests got there luggage around dinner time.  We enjoyed every almost every aspect of the ship and will sail on her again to take in the few things we missed.

Cabin / Stateroom
This cabin was under the bridge and has easy access to the bow area. If you get seasick easily you may want to book close to midship as every mive of the ship could be felt even with the stabilizers out. The room steward was beyond excellent and made sure every member of our family had a great time and no concerns with our cabin.
