Splendour of the Seas

7 Night Greek Isles (Venice Roundtrip)

Sail Date: September 25, 2010

Ship: Splendour of the Seas

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review Summary

Everything went great - no complaints. The staff was friendly and attentive and we could get anything we needed. The ship seems a bit out of date when I look at photos of other ships; I understand that it will go under a major renovation soon. Few restaurant choices, but the food in the main dining area and buffet was great. Nice snack choices. Lot's and lot's of food! Never saw the coffee bar, but it would be nice to have coffee "choices" at no extra cost.

Ports Of Call

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

Olympic site was busy but worth seeing. Did not do a tour but was able to walk around and understand the site.
Don't Miss: Olympic site.

Split, Croatia

Glad I saw it, but don't feel the need to go back. Dirty, waterfront was smelly and only a few shops were open (Sunday). Also, you had to exchange your Euros to Krone and that was another expense.

Mykonos, Greece

Much more laid back and fun to walk the neighborhoods. Very busy roads though.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

5 out of 5
Acropolis was the site of a lifetime. The Plaka was not impressive - very busy and hard to get around. I could not find the shops that were recommended, but when I did, they were the higher end and it was hard to browse.
Don't Miss: Acropolis

Corfu, Greece

3 out of 5
Went up to the fort and that was fun to walk around. Walked back to the ship and that was an easy walk.
Don't Miss: Fort area (not sure of the name)

Pros: Great staff; all are attentive and knowlegeable.

Cons: extra charges for this such as fitness classes; shuttle buses; coffee, etc. (alcohol and beauty salon services are appropriate)

Recommends Splendour of the Seas? Yes!
