We originally booked this cruise due to price, time frame, & itinerary.  The stops were all very interesting & the number of sea days allowed for enjoyment of many on board choices of activities also.  As it is a smaller ship, the staff had the time to be much more personal & we felt we were treated like friends rather than customers.  This was the last voyage of the Splendour as RCL has sold her to Thompson.  That made for a really one of a kind cruise - as all the staff & entertainers recognized that each activity was the last on board this ship!  Great fun!

Service and Staff

Our formal dining room staff - Li & Jose were the best we have ever experienced. Talita, one of the Activity Staff that did the Exercise classes was superb.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship is definitely getting older, but it was clean & most things were maintained. Definitely ready to be refurbished. Loved the smaller size & everything was set up well.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had a couple of plumbing issues that caused grief. We did receive compensation, but it was annoying. Otherwise, the bed was fine, lots of storage. Balcony was great. Furniture was scratched up & old. Refrigerator barely cooled.

Ship Tip

Lots of activities took place in the centrum. Not the best, but it worked.
