Splendour of the Seas Cruise Review by gizmoilk: Perfect Greek Islands cruise

Perfect Greek Islands cruise
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Having sailed with Royal Caribbean twice before, we felt that we could trust them to deliver a cruise around the Greek Islands.
Deliver they did!
The only down side of the holiday was the non direct flights from Birmingham via Dusseldorf to Venice that RCI had organised for us. This wasn't indicated to us when we booked. Had we known, we'd have plumped for flights from Manchester which were direct.
The flights however were smooth and efficient, courtesy of Lufthansa.
Having read reviews that Splendour was showing her age, we were a little worried, but we needn't have been. Apparently she's having a refit in November.
OK, some of the soft furnishings are a little tired, but the ship sparkled and work had obviously been done in some places.
Our interior Q grade cabin on deck 2 was standard for RCI, but no flat screen TV or mini bar. Everything worked and was spotlessly clean.
We ate in the Windjammer buffet restaurant most More nights (much quieter that at breakfast or lunch). The food was of excellent quality with theme nights - the Fish night on day 8 was fantastic.
The King & I dining room was OK and due to our table for 2, service was quick and efficient (and extra portions if we wanted it!) The itinerary was excellent, with Split, Mykonos and Santorini were our favourites.
Well done Royal Caribbean!! Less
