Review for Splendour of the Seas to Middle East

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

This was our first cruise. It was our Wedding Anniversary and my husband's 70th birthday, so it was booked up last June. We paid £3,900 for the holiday + £600 for 2 drinks packages, so expected some luxury... And we were so looking forward to our first cruise.... I could not sleep at all. The air con was on continuously blasting out all night. You couldn't turn it off. Neither did the ...

Age 70s

Having spent a great cruise in September on this ship we were really looking forward to this seven nighter in the Gulf. Check in was shambolic to say the least, evidently this was due in part to the Emirate ways rather than the usually efficient RC way. Access to staterooms was swift, partly due to the ship overnighting in Port Rashid Dubai. The DL somehow received a community spirit ...

Age 30s

You are over the age of 70 and like being rude to people. Then this is the cruise for you! Overall, the cruise was boring, the people on the cruise were rude, old people, the ship is old, bathroom too small, RC charges for EVERYTHING (ironing services, dinner options, coffee at dinner, room service costs after midnight), and the list goes on and on. PLEASE get your money back and do not go on ...

Having been on other cruises, my dad pay £19,000 for a family cruise last week on the splendour of the seas, however it was the worst cruise and a real let down, causing disappointment to the whole family including the kids. Firstly the safety brief was very disorganised being in a row of 4 and not even being told were our life jackets were, we didn't even practice putting them on. The ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

We are trying a cruising holiday as our first time and are not impressed, we started with no information from our agent regarding what we were expected to have, do and maintain. We arrived at the airport in Venice and had to tag all baggage with tags that are paper (femur) and with no holes to attach a tie on them, we got over this with a helpful traveller who had done this before. Arrival was ...

We recently cruised the Mediterranean with Royal Caribbean. We booked our cruise on the Royal Caribbean website and, because we were travelling with our two young daughters, booked interconnecting cabins. We booked internal cabins. We were travelling with another couple and my mother so we booked 4 cabins in total. Every time any of us logged on to the website and viewed our cruise profile, it ...

Age 30s

Coming from Los Angeles we chose to go on a South America cruise in february around the the time of Carnaval. I personally have cruised six times and have cruised with Royal Caribbean two times prior to the trip. My partner and I booked the cruise through Royal Caribbean directly. We booked our air travel through Expedia because we wanted to stay in Brazil a few extra days after cruising and the ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 80s

This trip completely failed to meet our expectations. From the beginning we encountered problems with the performance of the ship and its staff. First, when we arrived at the port on a bus provided by the company, we were dropped off at the luggage facility. It was pouring rain and there were not signs indicating where we were to go for check-in. After several wrong attempts to find the check-in ...

Age 40s

This was the 2nd half of our honeymoon (we are 29 & 27). I have only been on one cruise before (Grand Princess in 1999 to the Caribbean and LOVED it). My husband has never been on a cruise before so he wasn't sure what to expect. Royal Caribbean wasn't my 1st choice, but we were mostly interested in the ports of call and since this was a fairly expensive trip, $5,200 for a week with a balcony ...

First Time Cruiser

After having cruised 6 times within the past year, I feel like somewhat of a professional at the cruise experience. I had sailed this Western Mediterranean itinerary before with another cruise line, and booked this cruise for my husband, myself, and my 9 year old. Unfortunately, she was the only one of us to truly enjoy her cruise experience. Since there is so little good to say about my cruise ...
