Pampered Like a Rock Star

Sail Date: May 13, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We couldn't have been more pampered! The crew exceded our expectations at every step. They made it easy to reach all of the ports and to come and go into the ports at the times we wished. The food was wonderful (and seven pounds too plentiful :). We will definitely use Royal Caribbean the next time we book.

Pros: The care taken by the crew to make this a wonderful cruise

Cons: Price of drinks

Recommends Splendour of the Seas? Yes!

Some of the shows were a little hoaky, but they endeavoured to offer lots of different options during the day.
Ship Quality
This was an older ship, but all in all it was well cared for.
Food and Dining
The food was plentiful and the staff bent over backwards to get us everything we wished. My only complaint would be that they ran out of diet coke at the breakfast cafe (we had paid for the package).
Cabin / Stateroom
As I said, this was an older ship and the decor was kind of 70s. But it was clean and our stateroom attendant was very caring.
Service and Staff
Our wait staff in the restaurant was absolutely the tops!!! We loved our head waiter and assistant waiter.
Souda (Chania), Crete
Be sure to walk all the way into town and down to Little Venice at the harbor. It's just beautiful. And also have lunch at one of the small restaurants near the fort.
Don't Miss: Lunch at the restaurant near the fort. Be sure to get one of the special plates that include different kinds of food and that horrible drink!
Mykonos, Greece
You simply have to see it for yourself. Words and pictures can't describe its beauty.
Split, Croatia
We weren't expecting much, but we loved this port.
Don't Miss: The
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
We were told that this port would be a non-event, but we actually fell in love with it. The shopping was fun and the restaurants lining the harbor were great.
Don't Miss: eating mussels near the water.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Not as thrilling as I'd expected.
Don't Miss: The Acropolis Museum--it's new and it's fabulous
Santorini, Greece
My favorite of all the stops. From riding the tenders to riding the cable car to walking through the beautiful streets and shopping, to having a great lunch. Too too beautiful to describe adequately.
Don't Miss: The fabulous jewelry.
Corfu, Greece

Don't Miss: The shop where the old man is making and selling things made out of olive wood.
