Recommends Splendour of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
As stated above, ship was not new, but was taken very good care of. Was very clean and well manicured
Food and Dining
Food was ok. Nothing to rave about. Service was great. Big problem was lack of quality choices. No good cuts of beef and no lobster.
Casino was nice. Did not really attend any of the entertainment. As far as activities, plenty to keep you busy on the ship. Work out area was very nice.
Service and Staff
The best staff of any cruise line I have been on. Anything that was asked was done promptly. Never any negativity or any lack of willingness to help with anything.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was very clean. All amenities that we expected were there for us. Room was cleaned twice a day which was great.
Corfu, Greece
Town here is great. Wonderful views of harbor. Everything is within walking distance. Don't pay for the shuttle into town, not necessary. Go to the old fort. A little bit of a hike up it, but worth the view at the top. Also, good place to buy souveniers due to the cheapness factor. Very well priced.
Don't Miss: Old Fort
Mykonos, Greece
Try and go to paradise beach. Beautiful beaches, plenty of restaurants. The island is great. Friendly locals and plenty of picture opportunities. Would even suggest renting a scooter. Whole day is 15 Euro. If not then public transportation was 1.8 Euro per person for whole day.
Don't Miss: Go to the beaches.
Split, Croatia
Ok port. Go see Diocletians Palace. Really the only thing to see right off the ship. We did not take the excursion, but were told that the water falls were very nice. They will say they take euro here, but make sure you get Kuna. We had to beg people to take euro.
Don't Miss: Go see diocletians palace.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Do not take a taxi. There is a 15 minute walk to the train station that cost 1.2 euro per person. Go see the parthenon. Very beautiful. Cost 12 euro per person, but was very much worth it. All restaurants are about the same, but good quality at all of them.
Don't Miss: Parthenon.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
This port was very boring. We did an excursion to Olympia. Very interesting, but was rushed and didn't get enough time in actual town to walk around. Absolutely nothing to do here unless you take the tour.
Don't Miss: Only thing to do is the excursion to Olympia, otherwise stay on boat.
