Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Splendour of the Seas Greece/Greek Isles May 21, 2006

Splendour of the seas is a relatively small ship (compared to, for example, the Voyager class ships) and it is also older and for some aspects it shows (ex: beach chairs, wooden floor on the deck). The staff was very friendly..the activity coordinators were wonderful they almost knew everyone (even by their names and what country they were from). The entertainment was excellent-- there was a great variety; comedians, an opera singer, the rccl singers and dancers of course, there was even a magicien on the last night which was quite impressive, etc.

As for the food, it was alright (I was sick for a couple days so I missed out on a couple meals) but for what I got to taste it was good, nothing to complain about there. However there was some problems in the dining with the waiters and their head waiter..our head waiter was not doing his job properly and he did not get along well with the other waiters in general and that was the probably one of the only bad aspect of our entire cruise (and it wasnt even that big of a deal).

The rooms were clean, our stateroom attendent was excellent she truly cared about our well-being, basically the entire ship was always clean as well.The only thing I was disapointed with this ship was that their was hardly any families. There was a couple kids, a few teens (about 25 in total)..the number of seniors on this ship was very high (thats probably because we went at the end of May (schools arent done yet) and the destination was the Greek Isles.. I don't know!) Overall i recommend this ship to everyone, my trip to the Greek Isles was truly a memorable one..a big part of that is due to the awesome staff!
