16 Night Suez Canal Southbound (Venice To Dubai)
Sail Date: November 28, 2015
Ship: Splendour of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 8048
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

It was overall a good experience with seasoned staff who were personable and helpful.  This ship is soon to leave the RCL Fleet and in desperate need of an overhaul before it starts with the Thompson Charter group.  Food was ok and cabin was comfortable though the mattress should be thrown overboard and a new one bought.  :)

I would have been given it a better remark but the mattress was old and lumpy. As this was deck 8 we could hear the carts being moved around deck 9 where the indoor pool was overhead.
