Splendour of the Seas
7 Night Greek Isles (Venice Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 30, 2015
Ship: Splendour of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 3560
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The on-board activities were mainly inane--towel-folding lessons, fox-trot lessons (the fox-trot became passe 60 years ago).  Too much bus-riding on the off-ship excursions.  Why Argostoli?  Nothing but a third-rate cave and a so-so monastery.  Surely some other island would have been more interesting.  The solo guitarist for the last night dance party was really disappointing.

Same as above.

Onboard Activities

Most felt like activities at a resort hotel in the Pocanos in the 1950's.

The evening shows seemed somehow repetitive. The piano-bar singer was terrific. Some, but not all, of the evening dance-parties were a lot of fun.

Service and Staff

Cabin / Stateroom

Very like other cruise ships. An in-room coffee maker would have been appreciated.

Nothing anywhere beats the acropolic!

Delos was ancient Greece as I had dreamed it. A highlight of the cruise!

The nadir of the cruise. Why, for heaven's sake, did we go there?
