Reviewed: 10 years ago
We sailed with the Splendour of the Seas just recently. Evenso this was our 4th cruise it was the first one with Royal Caribbean, and I'm sorry to say we were very disappointed. It started with the check-in process, which was very unorganized and a mess. We had to wait for over 2 hrs in line, standing all the time, no place to sit down. Our suite was just as disappointed, the furniture were old and scratched up badly. The bottom of some of the drawers were falling out. The bathroom was tiny and the sink was cracked all over, shower curtain rings were missing and the curtains in front of the balcony sliding doors were very, very dirty. Dining in the Windjammer cafe was impossible,we could never find a place to sit down. If you were as so lucky to find two empty chairs, you could never get up again, because the tables were placed so close together that you could not move your chair back. The food was OK.

The quality of the entertainment was poor. The shows were scheduled to late most nights. English was not always spoken evenso it was the board language.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
The overall comfort of our stateroom was poor, we did not feel comfortible in it, because of the poor condition of the furniture and the uncleanliness.

Pros: Most of the public areas

Cons: Our stateroom
