We arrived in Venice Friday morning and took a water taxi to San Marco Square. The taxi ride was great and the driver took on a scenic tour thru several canals, so we could see the real Venice. We spent the night at the Royal San Marco ... Read more

We sailed on Vision of the Seas on 7th to 14th May and had the most wonderful holiday. Having sailed on RCS larger ships previously, the size of the Vision took some getting used to and the choice of food and entertainment was somewhat ... Read more

This was a Jekyll and Hyde cruise. The cabin, a Grand Suite was the most functional cabin we have ever stayed in and was at a bargain price. There was a functional flow to the layout, with enough closet space, more drawer space than we ... Read more

DON'T GO WITH ROYAL CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL IF YOU LIKE FOOTBALL... Just been on a 10 night cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas and they didn't show any football at all. RCI have decided they don't want to pay for this service. So no ... Read more

This was our 5th RCI cruise, and 2nd on Rhapsody. This ship is one of the smaller ones and can be quite quiet. We were in a group so made our own entertainment but there were mostly older people and some days the activities were lacking. ... Read more

We were a large party who sailed from Venice to Dubai on the Splendour of the Seas, a ship soon to be sold by RCI. I was a bit apprehensive given that the ship was 20 years old (despite a recent re-fit) as my previous experience on ships ... Read more

Flew Newcastle/Paris/Venice with Air France - flights on time but our worry about luggage transfer was a needless concern - met by RC staff and taken to coach. In no time we were on the ship & in our cabin. We had some concerns ... Read more

Having read some very mixed reviews of this ship I was curious to form my own opinions and experience Splendour for myself. It always intrigues me how there can be so vastly differing reports of the same ship. I am pleased to say that my ... Read more

We've cruised with RCI now for a number of years and generally like the cruise line. This particular cruise was a bit of a mixed bag! The good.... For an older ship about to be sold we were pleasantly surprised that it was in such ... Read more

We'd had a fab cruise on Eastern Med with Celebrity Silhouette in 2014 so jumped at the opportunity of repeating some of those fab ports with Royal Caribbean's Splendour in late Nov 2015, before it sailed off to Dubai for winter. We got a ... Read more

I came home yesterday from a good cruise on Splendour of the Seas. My first cabin had a few problems and was awful and after day 3 I was finally moved to a new cabin that had become available during the cruise. You may wonder why I gave ... Read more

Food was subpar in the main dining room, average in the windjammer cafe. However the Windjammer cafe seating area was slow at removing dirty dishes and actually wiping down tables. We had 8:30 seating in the main dining room, the food was ... Read more

This ship is old and so much of the public space is inadequate for 2000 passengers. Food is good but the bars, lounges and other public spaces just can't cope. The entertainment is poor and very amateurish. We saw a string quartet ... Read more
