Splendour of the Seas Cruise Review by goonergirl: Splendour was splendid!

Splendour was splendid!
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Splendour is a reasonably small ship but I found this a good point. It still took us a few days to find out where everything was! Staterooms were small but had ample storage room for 2 people and the bed was big and comfortable. The only thing lacking was decent toiletries - just 2 bars of soap and a shampoo dispenser in the shower, so take anything else you need!
The choice of meals in the main dining room was ample and changed every day. Sometimes it was difficult to choose and when the meal came it was always delicious and well presented. If anything was not right the waiters would soon sort it for you. We breakfasted in the main dining room too. You might as well be waited on if it doesn't cost any extra, in my opinion! We tried the Windjammer for a buffet lunch and there was plenty of choice but it was sometimes hard to find a table.
In the evenings we we went to some of the shows and they were entertaining. Our favourite place was the Schooner piano bar. We also More tried the casino and this was best on formal nights when they had a no smoking policy.
All in all we had a really great holiday and I would recommend it. Less

Conveniently near lifts/atrium. Not noisy. Plenty of storage for a week. Suitcases fitted under bed. Shower a bit small.
