We really enjoyed the Splendor and Bermuda from NYC. We found the Splendor to be very enjoyable. The ship was very clean and balcony stateroom fantastic. Although we have been on several cruises...this was our 1st balcony. Yes as previous reviewers have mentioned...the flow of the ship is a little odd but workable. Crew always friendly and made a point to say hi as you passed them.
Arrived at the pier by 10:15 and breezed thru security and check-in. On the ship by 11:30ish!
Balcony stateroom was spacious with lots of storage.
