Ship Facts: Splendour of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Splendour of the Seas Deck Plans
RCI 11 day Sept 6-16 2011
We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary and could not find a better cruise/cruise line. The ports were fabulous, and the perfect 10 weather (cloudless), added to the immense enjoyment that we experienced.

Ship, food, crew, & dining room staff were top notch. The venues for nighttime enjoyment were plentiful and exciting and it goes with out saying that having the cruise director & his staff involved during the 2 at sea days was quite a bit of fun and very entertaining. We will definately cruise with RCI once again.

The only real negative was the price we had to pay to go from the ship to Venice on the 5th & 6th of Sept while we were in port. In order to see as much of Venice that we could, we left the ship at 1 pm on the 5th,and since there was NO transportation provided by RCI UNTIL 4:35 pm, we had to pay for a private water taxi, 26 Euros. That was not fair. Also,taking the 1st shuttle in to Venice on the 6th,(PROVIDED BY RCI) was much too high, $20 PP. & that transportation was, in our opinion, way out of line.

One suggestion we would make is that on the days that the tenders are in service, it would behoove one to get up early and get the FIRST tender ticket in to the port thereby maximizing ones time in the port.
