We really enjoyed the Splendor and Bermuda from NYC. We found the Splendor to be very enjoyable. The ship was very clean and balcony stateroom fantastic. Although we have been on several cruises...this was our 1st balcony. Yes as previous reviewers have mentioned...the flow of the ship is a little odd but workable. Crew always friendly and made a point to say hi as you passed them.
Arrived at the pier by 10:15 and breezed thru security and check-in. On the ship by 11:30ish!
Cabin: A balcony cabin that we found spacious and very clean. Room Stewart's very efficient and quick to clean room.
Either on time or a few minutes early
Food: We found to be very good with lots of choices on the Lido and MDR. One drawback was the anytime dining. We done this on other cruise lines and worked well for us then. We just found ATD appeared not to organized and wait times usually 20-40 minutes. A beeper is given and you can listen to the music in the Atrium.
Entertainment: All shows were enjoyable. The juggler (Dana Tison) was the best and we both really enjoyed him. The comics were very good as well.
We choose not to do self assist this time and found the process went very smoothly. We were able to have leisurely breakfast in MDR and then sat in the Red carpet lounge to wait for our zone to be called. We were off the ship by 10:00 and on the road by 10:30.
Bermuda: One word........Beautiful.
