Splendour ok

Sail Date: September 11, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Room Type: Balcony

Tours were all too early, so did self tours/taxi drivers, esp. in Athens outstanding and drove us straight to Acropolis and told us to go down the "backside" to the Plaka rather than follow all of the tour busses.

Windjammer Cafe was a very good alternative instead of the table for 10 which we did not request. I apologize for the very rude California male at our table who wore his cap/ was asked politely/quietly to remove it and then proceeded to make fun of the Roman ruins; staff were very courteous to him/completely ignored we 2 Asian females who are professionals in our fields (served as Mayor of our city).
I would try Royal Caribbean again, but not Splendour.

Pros: Entertainment; nitely shows.

Cons: Table for 10; rude alpha males
