Pleasant Cruise to Greece

Sail Date: April 22, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

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.

Pros: Staff courtesy

Cons: Noisy children and infants in Solarium's pool and hot tubs, and not enough seating in Pool areas and buffet

Recommends Splendour of the Seas? No.

Great place, even with the rain all day. $10 shuttle bus was outrageous for the short ride.
Split, Croatia
Best site: Diocletian Palace
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Acropolis was great to see, but not enough time to also see the museum and town. Should have had longer port time.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Very nice
Don't Miss: Olympia
