  3. River Splendor
We sailed on River Splendor at the end of April and into early May. The cruise was Belgium and Netherlands. It was designed to give you a look at the tulips and flowers of Holland. They are beautiful. We had Room 325 in the center of the ship. A very nice room. Small but efficient. Nice bathroom with a very good shower. The room had a large window that opened with a beautiful view as we cruised. The ship itself is very nice. On the top deck was a sitting area but it was to chilly to use most days. We did sit up there one day with coffee and played a game from the library. Nice area to just relax. Smoking is restricted to a very small area so for the most part it won't bother non-smokers. The dining area is very nice. It is large and comfortable. Our restaurant manager was named Boyan and he ran a very good restaurant indeed. Super friendly wait staff that does a great job. At breakfast the buffet never runs out. Lunch and dinner were always good. The food is presented nicely and very god quality. Even the cheeseburger was good! The staff of this boat is extremely friendly and helpful beyond belief! Anything you need or any question you have will be answered. Everyone speaks very good English. The selection of shore excursions is wonderful. The guides know their area very well and are more than willing to just chat if time permits. The places you see are well chosen. Our guide at the Rijkmuseum was so animated and so knowledgabble about the art he was a show himself. Art excited him and he showed it. Kukendoff Gardens are crowded but you can do it all. All in all a great cruise!

Wonderful Trip!

Cabin Review

Cabin 325
Great cabin overall. Enough space for 2 weeks worth of clothes and computers. Wi Fi is good. Many places in towns available for wi fi. Cabin was kept very clean and the staff is never intruding on you.

    Anne Frank tour is in very high demand! Book early. We didn't but Renata helped us do it on our own and it worked perfectly. It is an amazing experience.
