Splendour of the Seas Cruise Review by Parakalo: Perfect Vacation
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Our cabin was wonderful - very spacious, plenty of storage. Our Cabin Steward was friendly, accommodating and super efficient. We found the ship to be clean and well cared for. The shows in the main showroom were well done, full of energy and well suited to the clientele. Loved the idea of the "big screen" for outdoor movie but never actually sat out to watch one.
Main dining room was super efficient and staff was very friendly. Menu and meals were good - nothing really outstanding but always good. The dining experience was made great because of our table mates! We had a table for 10 and it turned out to be perfect! Ourselves and the couple we were travelling with, 4 women from Australia and a couple from Ecuador. We arrived strangers but departed friends!
The roast beef sandwiches in the Solarium were the best! Bailey's Shiver is my new favorite after dinner cocktail! Guest Services personnel were extremely helpful - even assisted with contacting an outside More tour agency when then ship itinerary had to be changed at the last minute. Boarding and departing, simple and efficient.
Enjoyed the formal nights (2). The Captain's "cocktail party" was just so-so but likely the only way to introduce him to 1700 passengers! It is a shame that seating at the Captain's table is now a "pay" activity rather than by invitation or request. Less

Cabin review: JS8048 Junior Suite
Cabin 8048 was just about perfect. Wonderful location, port side. Great balcony. Plenty of storage. Good size bathroom with full tub/shower. A little noise when moving the chairs poolside to start and end the day but nothing really bothersome.Read All Junior Suite (JS) Reviews >>
