Why choose Splendour of the Seas?

Royal Caribbean is one of the largest cruise lines in the world, operating a modern fleet which attracts travellers of all ages - from single explorers to families. The Splendour of the Seas has been part of the fleet since its launch in 1996 and underwent a multi-million dollar makeover in 2011, bringing the facilities and décor on board right up to date.

Destinations and Itineraries

Up until the end of November, this ship stays in and around the Mediterranean and has a home port of Venice. The ship tours the Greek Islands, Turkey and Croatia, alternating its itinerary to explore the eastern Mediterranean. Passengers can board the ship at Venice or Bari on a seven night cruise that leaves Italy and heads to the Ionian island of Corfu, the next day arriving at Santorini. A brief visit to Turkey follows when the ship calls at Kusadasi. The Athenian port of Piraeus is next, followed by Katakolon. The ship spends another day at sea before returning to the ancient maritime republic of Venice where passengers take their return flight home.

The Greek Islands and Croatia Cruise also sets sail from Venice and Bari and makes its next stop at Corfu. Mykonos in the Cyclades is the next stop before the ship visits the Greek capital. The next stop is the historic Croatian port of Dubrovnik is the next port of call, with the ship heading back to Venice the following day.

However holidaymakers may want to spend their cruise, the broad range of entertainment and dining options presented on this ship ensure that the Splendour of the Seas offers something for everyone of any age.


There are two swimming pools, one inside and one out and also a spa and fitness centre. It is easy to stay healthy on board the Splendour of the Seas, which has a jogging track, a sports court, a climbing wall and an 18-hole miniature golf course and gym, which offers aerobics and yoga. There is also a sauna and steam room to unwind and plenty of deck space for sunbathing. Children on Royal Caribbean Cruises can find a wealth of distractions catering for different age groups. There is a video arcade, a youth disco, a kids play area and a supervised children’s club which organises activities such as scavenger hunts and sports competitions. The dress code on board the ship is casual and comfortable during the day and smart casual in the evening. There is usually at least one formal night on a Royal Caribbean cruise where a dinner suit is required of the men and ladies are required to wear a cocktail dress.


The ship’s elegant main dining room is named The Great Gatsby and can cater for 1,171 passengers in a single sitting. As you would expect, the service is friendly and efficient. The Park Café provides an alternative dining option, serving hot and cold food. The Izumi Asian fusion restaurant serving sushi is one of the new additions to the ship, as is the Chops Grill or the Chef’s Table for a special occasion, or the Boardwalk Dog House for a quick hotdog. After dinner entertainment is presented in the 42nd Street Theatre, which, as its name might suggest, offers Broadway style entertainment. Dancing, music and cabaret can be found in the Top Hat Lounge. A quiet evening can be spent in the library, or fortune hunters can try their luck in the casino. There is also a disco, the Schooner Bar, the Viking Crown Lounge and a card room.
