Splendour of the Seas is a fabulous shop and a real credit to Royal Caribbean. Such a pity she is being sold on April 2016. She is has the most wonderful crew, spotlessly clean and great food. Never once did ...

Check in was longer than usual as queues had built up but we were very pleased with prompt arrival of bags. Interior cabin 6111 was clean, comfy and very quiet at night. We had towel animals and a very friendly ...

A Truly Splendid Cruise on The Splendour!

Hello! I'm reading these past few reviews about the Splendour and it's almost as if the other posters were on a different ship. We sailed a 7 day cruise from Venice departing on October 3, 2015. It was an ...

Surprised at what a great ship - forgot bigger is not always better!

This is our 17th cruise (15th on RCCL) and first smaller ship in years. Did Quantum in April and had been on Oasis and Allure a couple times each in the past few years. Quantum left a bad taste for RCCL for us but ...
