Great Family Adventure!

Sail Date: June 16, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Cruised with a family of four. It was a great vacation. Port calls make all the difference too. It was a lot sightseeing for two kids in a 7 day period, but all worth it. Kids loved the kids center (Adventure Ocean) and wanted to go every day. Fortunately the staff was wonderful. The ship is getting old and there are many more RCCL ships with more to offer, but again the itinerary makes the difference. Dubrovnik and Mykonos were our favorite stops. Food was great too. Gets a little busy in the Windjammer at times, but with food available 20 hours a day, you never went hungry. In addition, we traveled with another family and was able to sit at dinner with them each night. The wait staff took great care of the children. Would recommend to anyone wanting to explore the eastern med.

Pros: Port calls, crew, activities for children, service, food.

Cons: Size of the ship.

Recommends Splendour of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
As I stated previously, ship is getting old and small, but still very clean and updated. Could be a positive as there is not as many people on board.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stayed in a balcony room in the back of the ship. View was wonderful, porch was a good size, but being in the back/aft the room did shake/vibrate more than if you stayed midships.
Food and Dining
Meals were all great...wine...desserts.
Service and Staff
Room always clean and ready for the day or night. Wait staff "over" feed us at dinner each night.
Children's Programs
Adventure Ocean is great. Gave us a break from the kids and never felt nervous about leaving them.
For such a small ship they do a very good job. Bars are great, nice decor. Drinks were good too. Again, best Eastern Med itinerary.
