Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

I have just returned from my 6th Cruise and 2nd with RCI. I chose this cruise mainly for the Price and Destination offered and all in all was very good value for money.

Splendour is nearly 20 years old and on its last season before transferring to Thomson (where it will greatly improve their fleet). Some people mentioned it was tired looking but i didn't think this was the case.

The Staff in general were extremely helpful,fun and hard working.
