I am writing this review, as I have had invaluable advise and help on CC.
We are 3 Kiwi's who were on our first trip to Europe, we had already been travelling overland for 2.5 weeks when we boarded Splendor. Training out from Termini was easy. As long as you have a bag on wheels, and are up for a bit of a walk (the platform is just about at the end number 28) the cost is only 4.50euro and absolute steal, compared to transfer's and taxis. We all had 2 piece's of luggage and still managed. Once we got there we opted to pay the 5 euro to take the taxi transfer straight to the ship, we saw alot of people walking with their bags, but we felt it was a small price to pay to jump the queue and board the ship early. Embarkation, was very easy and we were onboard very quickly.
Our cabin 1111 on the Spa Deck was gorgeous, we had bought an oceanview originally and then upgraded a month out for a small price, we felt it was well worth it as we went from deck 1 to deck 11. The beds, linen and pillows were the best I have slept on as far as cruises go. Our Cabin steward and wait staff at dinner were all very attentive. (Apparently the color scheme is different on this deck as well, more of an asian flavor - red's in color). They also give you elemis products.
