Food was just okay. Dining room staff was FANTASTIC. Too young and too loud Cruise Director. Wonderful Captain. We couldn't have been happier with the overall experience. A cruise is what you make it. We made it FUN! Embarkation was incredibly smooth. You just walk on and your keys are waiting at the room. Mongolian Wok is the best. Be there EARLY! Music was all over the ship. We even played some Bingo. Our server Meyhela was awesome for dinner. We had Rika's table for sea day brunch. So great. The unique thing about Splendor is that it rarely felt crowded. 1000 kids on-board but plenty of room. Speaking of rooms, our steward Carter took excellent care of both of our rooms. He always had a smile, was rarely seen but our room was always PERFECT. Piano bar with Patrick was some of the most fun. Signing all night was hilarious.

GREAT staff. OLD ship.
