Ship Facts: Splendour of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Splendour of the Seas Deck Plans
Superb experience
After reading a zillion average reviews of this cruise online we were in for a suprise! Our whole cruising experience was really tooo good to be true. The ship is small but comfortable, the food was delicious especially in the formal dining room each night and the crew was remarkably alert, efficient, friendly and super helpful. The cleanliness on board the ship was stellar as was the entertainment and the public areas in the ship. My 9 year old son enjoyed the adventure ocean program a lot... The people in charge did a good job as he was thrilled with whatever they did there each day.

The pool area used to be really crowded but then there's a choice one has of either swimming in the solarium or the outside pool area. Embarkation and disembarkation was smooth... with no glitch what so ever. We are vegetarians and the staff did make an extra effort to serve us what we could eat. Thank you so much.The deserts on board can rival the best patisseries anywhere in the world. The menu had its bit for everyone: sugarfree for the heath conscious, vegetarian for the vegans, italian for the most loved cusine of the world i guess and lovely wines suggested to compliment each food each day. Loved how they served the deserts with a shot of coffee.

Also There was a lot going on, on the ship at different times of the day and night. Lots for everyone to do. With the ports of call being so exciting there was a lot one can do in a day on port and onboard the ship.... really loved everything about the whole experience. Before boarding on each port, they had cold water being served to us just before we board which was really nice. Attention to detail was very good.

The shows were lovely especially dancing thru the movies. great foot tapping music.Really enjoyed the shows. Our room attendant was very friendly and super helpful. My son adored the towel animals he put in our cabin almost each night. Thank you so much for the effort. The room service was prompt and efficient. Please do try the pizzas. They are yummy! Our cabin was so comfy and the ship so smooth that each morning we used to get up to notice that we had already docked on the port! No sensation of movement at all. The flat tv in the room had limited but sufficient channels. No ipad in the room yet but we didnt seem to miss that at all.

The onboard photographer was very cheerful and always ready to click us at any given time. The captains dinner was very well planned and the suprise of the champagne glass was nice. The shops onboard did truly have a better deal than a lot of stuff on port or land. Picked up a few knicknacks from there. We were so happy with our experience that we cant wait to board our next cruise which will hopefully be the Royal Caribbean. Very very impressed!
