10 Night Greek Isles (Venice Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 22, 2011
Ship: Splendour of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Very dated look to ship, parts were dirty and deck 2 near our room had moldy smell in hallway. Solarium did not adhere to the ship's rule of 16 yrs and older only. Nothing but screaming children in area. No seating around pool area available. At breakfast time in the Windjammer cafe, seating was very inadequate. Food was average not what we have experienced on other cruise lines. Port stop in Athens was way too short. Outrageous price of $10 each for bus to Mykonos for such a short ride.

Acropolis was great to see, but not enough time to also see the museum and town. Should have had longer port time.

Great place, even with the rain all day. $10 shuttle bus was outrageous for the short ride.
