A fantastic trip.

Sail Date: May 22, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Room Type: Inside

Loved the ship. It had so much to offer, the choice of dining experiences, the theatre, casinos and lounges, pools mini golf etc. Everything was easy to get to.

Pros: Leaving the "driving" to Royal Caribbean - Going to port each day then returning to relax and enjoy while travelling to the next port.

Cons: Limited time in some ports.

Recommends Splendour of the Seas? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
The room was small, but that was expected. Since we only used it for sleeping, cleaning up and changing, that was not an issue. Would've liked a bit more storage space, but we managed fine
Service and Staff
The staff was fantastic. Everyone helpful and friendly & really made us feel like friends. I can't think of a single complaint!
We didn't use many of the activities because we went into port each day. The show in 42nd Street Theatre and game shows in the Top Hat Lounge were great. We did a bit of minature golf and shuffleboard, relaxed on deck & took a late nite stroll after dinner each nite. It was great.
Ship Quality
Our first cruise so no basis for comparison, but the ship was immaculate, decor was very appealing.
Food and Dining
Excellent food selection & endless supply. Enjoyed the options of dining room or windjammer cafe.
Corfu, Greece
Visited the "Old Fort" and the Achillion Palace. Gardens of the Palace were beautiful as were the views.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
We rented a van and drove to Olympia. Again the site of the original Olympics was a great visit. Later drove to one of the beaches, then explored town & did some shopping.
Don't Miss: Olympia
Mykonos, Greece
Walking thru the village, with its white buildings, winding walkways set off by the blue waters and flowers. Like being in a postcard. We took the boat to the island of Delos and explored the ruins there. Another good choice.
Split, Croatia
We took excursion to Krka National Park and found it to be a beautiful choice. The guide was great and it also was a great workout walking among the waterfalls and hills. Absolutely worth visiting unless physically unable.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Of course, we did the Acropolis and Parthenon. It was amazing. The view from the top was also fantastic.
Don't Miss: Parthenon
