Here are the key points to this fabulous cruise.1.  Royal Carribean continues to get high marks from me.  Compared to Princess....there is no comparison.  RC has it all over Princess.  Service was outstanding (the crew knew their "stuff" and, more important, cared.2.  Upgraded to the Owner's Suite....what an experience.  We had 3 in the room so the "extra" room was well worthwhile.  Balcony terrific.3.  Try to be on the Port side......the sail-away from Venice sitting on your balcony is amazing.  Views from the Port side throughout the cruise were exceptional.4.  Ship is smaller than the "mega" ships but had all the amenities necessary.5.  Ports fantastic.  Especially loved Santorini.6.  Food always hot and above average.  Selections were very well balanced.  King and I dining room a little noisy and Windjammer can get crowded on a sea day; however, food/service outweighed the negatives.7.  Work out room also a bit smaller but I could always get a machine.  Step classes were crowded.8.  Crew worked together for some time and it showed.  They were excited about their ship and their captain.All in all, this was my 8th cruise and by far the BEST.

Splendour was Splendourous!!!!!
