There must be two Splendours of the Seas ?
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Diego, our state room attendant, must have been hiding under the bed to clean our room about 4 times a day.
First night, after driving over 400 miles from Vienna (secure parking provided by RC in front of the departure lounge), we were tired and ate in the Windjammer cafe. What a pleasant surprise! As two professional couples - used to good food standard, we pre-booked my time dinning. After our first night experience we returned back to the Windjammer cafe again and again for tasty meals and pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to Andrew, who was keeping his sharp eye on the restaurant, it was always spotless and efficient. Team in the kitchen brought us variety of freshly made, first More class restaurant food, like olive tapenade, prawns, smoke salmon salad, artichoke hearts , baked garlic, fresh pasta. Beef bourguignon tasted like Julia's Child recipe, not to mention chocolate cakes and lemon tart with strawberry caulie and warm chocolate. We were pleasantly surprised by freshly prepared variety of food during Italian night, Greece night and Edwin's perfect Indian curries selections. Lovely Tatiana kept offering nice wine.
OK, there was no lobster, but for those who didn't notice there was a market crash few years back and lot of things changed since then, unemployment is much higher . Only complain - RC should put bigger tags on meals or provide free reading glasses for travellers to notice lovely constantly changing food variety.
Royal Caribbean thank you for great experience. We will come again. Less
