Ship Facts: Splendour of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Splendour of the Seas Deck Plans
Good cruise but could be better
We truly enjoyed the service level of the staff of this 11 day cruise. Everyone, with the exception of the purser desk, was kind and courteous. The selection of the ports of call was great. Unfortunately, the food at both the "King and I" and Windjammer was not up to par. At the "King and I" dining room, many selections on their menus were not available or prepared in a very crude fashion. At best,the food was equated to something a touch above fast food chains such as Denny's.

Of the seven ports we visited, Kotor in Montenegro proved to very scenic, particularly the two hour duration en route to the harbor. It reminds us of the fjords in Norway and the highway going up Whistler in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Split, Croatia is very special too. We took a coach to Trogir, a UNESCO town. Very well preserved and relaxing.

Santorini is magnificent. We took a bus and spent most of the day at Oia, the poster perfect town that can consume your entire camera memory card and spare batteries.

Venice is full of tourist and the best way is to avoid the crowd by wandering around the other islands after you have checked out St Mark's square.

Athens has a lot of history and since we were there not too long ago, we decided to take the subway to town and wandered around the foot of the Acropolis.
