We sailed on Splendour of the Seas and I must say I was really pleasantly surprised. We had read some pretty "not so great" reviews here on Cruise Critic and were quite concerned we had made a mistake. As it turned out, we did ... Read more

We just returned from our cruise on Splendour of the Seas. The ship was small, but well maintained. We were overly impressed with the staff on the ship. We definitely prefer larger ships, but in Europe there just isn't much time to enjoy ... Read more
