We had previoulsy sailed on the Legend of The Seas so knew exactly what to expect from its sister ship The Splendour. We choose our cruises based on the itinerary rather than the ship as we have found regardless of the ships facilities we spend most of our time either exploring ports or lying on a sun lounger on sea days.
Embarkation was painless, we arrived at 1600 and were in our room by 1630 with our bags delivered 20 mins later. Disembarkation was the same - went to our assigned lounge at 0835 and were off by 0850.
The Splendour is due a refit next month and I hope they update the style of the cabins as while they are perfectly functional the decor is out dated and a little dreary. The ship is in good condition by enlarge and is very clean, however towards the end of the cruise many of the pieces of equipment in the gym were out of order and there were a lot of sun loungers with broken straps.
