Splendour of the Seas - Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
The shows were good, we saw both production shows and the final night show. The band in the Top Hat Lounge played lots of different kinds of music. The Karaoke was fun and the Quest was a blast, this was our first time at Quest so we were amazed at the things people will do to win some cheap prizes. We participated in bingo and at the casino and won at both.
On the last sea day a crew member became ill and the Coast Guard sent a helicopter to pick her up and transport her to the hospital in Alabama. It was exciting to watch them in action sending down a capsule and and an individual to bring her up to the helicopter. We lost about 1 1/2 hours to the rescue but everyone was happy to hear she was stable and doing okay. We arrived back in port at 9:00 instead of 7:00 and were one of the first off the ship by 9:30 am. Our trip to the airport was non-eventful and we had plenty of time to get our flight at 3:44 pm back to Detroit.
This is a nice ship, smaller then the last several I have been on, but the crew is enjoyable, we were always able to find something good to eat in the cafe and the dining room, and the ship activities were fun. The Spa had a special on the second sea day and we had a Top 2 Toe massage and facial that was fantastic. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to take a smaller ship on a short cruise. Less
