We originally booked this cruise due to price, time frame, & itinerary. The stops were all very interesting & the number of sea days allowed for enjoyment of many on board choices of activities also. As it is a smaller ship, the staff had the time to be much more personal & we felt we were treated like friends rather than customers. This was the last voyage of the Splendour as RCL has sold her to Thompson. That made for a really one of a kind cruise - as all the staff & entertainers recognized that each activity was the last on board this ship! Great fun!
