A cruise to remember

Sail Date: July 31, 2010

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship Splendour of the Seas is an older and smaller ship than the new super ships. I like the intimacy of the small ships, but felt this particular ship definitely needs an update. The food selection was eclectic as the head chef was from India and each dinner had a dish from India. Since half of the cruise guests were Italian there was also a daily pasta dish. The food was good, but not the best I've had on other Royal Carribean ships. This was my fourth cruise with Royal Carribean and I was not disappointed. The staff on the ship is awesome.

Pros: Travelling to Split Croatia and the various Greek islands

Cons: Athens the city was very dirty and hot

Recommends Splendour of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was warm, but maintenance came immediately and adjusted our air conditioning inside the ceiling vent to the coolest setting possible. The bathroom was outdated with pink sink.
Service and Staff
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Dont eat the gyro at the fast food place, it was awful. We went to a beach by taxi for $35 euro. Beach was very rocky bring water shoes.
Corfu, Greece
The cruiseship excursion to the top with wine and uzo was great. The shopping at that location was good.
Don't Miss: Take pictures from the highpoints and don't miss going on a boat to the caves.
Split, Croatia
We picked up a taxi at the port who took us around for a one hour tour for $40 euro. We could walk to a nice beach from the port.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
The Acropolis was amazing, but a lot of walking. The day we were there it was very hot.
Don't Miss: The acropolis and Olympic stadium
Mykonos, Greece
Loved the shopping and Paradise beach.
Don't Miss: Paradise Beach has great amenities.
