I have sailed on the Splendor 4 times with my 5th coming up on
June 1, 2015. I like to book cabins in the forward area because we
do your time dining and the dining room is in the front as well as
the theater, guest services, atrium, the shops, casino, and lido
we went on the Easter with a group of 44 people we all have fun
and have a good time. I been cruise 10 times and Divina have the
best show at sea and is a very beautiful ship, with lot of thing to
do if you are a active person you don't get bore, the food is good
above average , the coffee bar better then Starbuck you have to try
some frozen coffee they are so good, buy the voucher they are so
cheap, other ship they don't have voucher, so you will save lot
money. we all love Divina and would come back again. The show they
have are so amazing one of the best ratting at sea.
In my personal opinion, the best reason to book Celebrity
Cruises can be summed up in two words. First word: Jayne. Second
word: Curry. Jayne Curry is a phenomenal entertainer with a clear,
powerful, pitch perfect alto voice, a warm stage presence and is a
true Funny Gurl (read her highly entertaining blog for the reason
for the unusual spelling). Ms. Curry can take a lyric and wring as
much emotion from it as could Judy Garland. She appears to be a
totally grounded, down-to-earth entertainer with enough droll wit
and humor to fill an auditorium. And her speaking voice is
gorgeous; very resonant, relaxed, sincere. If her agents are not
marketing her for voice overs they should send out demo reels
immediately. I have just written Celebrity to suggest they make her
their spokesperson. Also, Celebrity should provide this treasure
with ground transportation (taxis) and not ask her to pay for it
out of her own pocket.
We were travelling with a group of seven: my husband and myself,
our two grown daughters, one son-in-law and two grandchildren.
Every Celebrity crew member could not have been friendlier and more
professional. Several even
remembered my Granddaughter’s name and would bring her
cookies. You could tell each employee had been exquisitely trained.
The rooms were clean and used storage space most efficiently.
The food was consistently excellent. The pool is quite small.
I’m not sure this particular ship would be best for older
teens unless Jayne Curry was performing and then they would just
have to grin and bear it if they were travelling with me.
The entertainers in addition to the incredible Jayne were all
good but there was one glaring exception: the children’s show
on the final night of the cruise was abominable. I’m not
referring to the performers. They were on a par with theme park
talent. It was the writing that wilted all comprehension. Our group
felt that the writers of this disjointed show must have spent three
days straight downing martinis in the martini bar. We could hear
them claim “we’re so drunk let’s just grab a song
here and a song there, throw them all into a story that defies
reason, add glittery scenery and no one will notice!” We
noticed and are forthwith issuing a plea to Celebrity –
rewrite that ghastly show!
