Ship Facts: Splendour of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Splendour of the Seas Deck Plans
Amazing Brazilian Cultural Inmersion in the new Splendour
We are a married gay couple kind of travel addicts and we love cruising.

First I have to say that these Itineraries from Brazil are amazing/interesting, we visited Punta del Este, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Buzios, Ihla grande and Ihlabela and enjoyed every single port of call. When this ship is in its Brazilian season, of course is aimed to the brazilian market and Portuguese becomes the main language on board but this was not a problem, we could get information in English all the time. I must said that Brazilians are a very relaxed cruise passengers that really know how to have Holiday, parties until late night, late dinners, so funny the brazilian activities (in portuguese) but we could always understood a little. I would recommend to have holidays like brazilians.

Having cruised in the Vision of the Seas three years ago in our honeymoon we knew a lot about the "Vision Class" ships for this reason we were so looking forward to our Brazilian/South American Cruise in the renovated Splendour of the Seas and we definitely enjoyed the Ship and the Itinerary.

I just have to say that the renovation of this ship is totally successful, the new bathrooms, the renovation of the furniture in the cabins make it look like almost totally a new ship, having an Ocean View cabin, we had enough space for both of us.

Also the new additions in the ship: specialty restaurants like Izumi and Chops Grill and the Chef's Table experience, the Board Walk Dog House, Cafe Lattetudes makes the dinning experience more diverse. The Chefs Table Experience is a must and is really enjoyable and the food there was amazing.

The main dinning room and the Buffet restaurants were OK for the standards, but the service I would say is one of the best we have got in a royal caribbean cruise.

The new Atrium in the ship and the aerial performances are really good, and there is always something happening in there, the new atrium design gives a very special vibe to this area on the ship.

In general, we loved the ship after this renovation and loved the brazilian cruising style, loved the ports of call and is a good way to get an small taste of South America and a lot of brazilian culture
