Just returned today from a week long cruise starting off in
Venice, Athens (port of Pireus, Kusadasi in Turkey, Heraklion in Crete and
finally visiting Corfu. I really had to post this sooner rather than later
whilst I still have the holiday feeling! I went on holiday with my husband, my
three young daughters and my parents.
We had an absolutely fantastic time. This was our third cruise and beats our previous cruises we went on some ten years ago hands down.
The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a stateroom with a view outside which was on the small side, but there were four of us sleeping in two sets of bunk beds so what could we expect!!
My parents and one of my daughters also had a stateroom further along than ours which seemed a lot cooler than ours, our air conditioning in the room had a lot of work to do!!
The only other minor criticism is that the hairdryer kept overheating and turning itself off after 2 or 3 minutes, but it was not really a problem.
The shower in the bathroom however was very good and there was adequate storage space in the room.
Overall the food was very good, although we ate most evenings (main seating) in the King and I Dining Room and the food was never very hot.
Our waiter did advise us each evening which selection to choose and he was pretty accurate.
The food in the Windjammer was good and plentiful and looked appealing. The egg chef was our favorite and makes a mean omelet!
The ship was constantly being cleaned inside and out by staff and was immaculate.
Overall our experience was a fantastic one and we would book to go on the Splendour again without hesitation.
