Splendour of the Seas
7 Night Greek Isles & Turkey (Venice Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 30, 2010
Ship: Splendour of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago
This ship is in dire need of an overhaul. It's the shabbiest ship I've ever been on. Every trip to the spa/salon was guaranteed to be an excursion into incompetence!

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food was the worst I've ever had on a cruise ship... no matter whether from the dining room, the buffet or room service. And, there was inadequate seating in the buffet. We frequently had to search for a table.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The ship's staff on whole did not speak English well - which is much unlike other cruises I've been on. In general, the staff's attitude was a bit poor, I must say.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Ship was in poor shape and looked dingy.

This port can be done on your own as well.

This port can be done on your own and is awesome.
Don't Miss: meandering through the streets

Don't take a tour. Do this port on your own and take the cable car to the top for the view of Old Town.

You must take a tour to get this done. I recommend Best of Ephasus. It is awesome!
Don't Miss: Best of Ephasus shore excursion.

Pros: Ports of Call

Cons: Condition of Ship/Food/Staff Attitudes
