Things to remember: On board the Splendour of the Seas
Just a couple things to keep in mind when planning for a Splendour of the Seas cruise:
You’ll usually find two formal nights on a weeklong cruise and one smart casual night with the rest purely casual. Even on the formal nights there’s no need to break out a tux or gown - a dark suit or cocktail dress should do nicely.
Splendour of the Seas has plenty in store for kids, with their Adventure Ocean program divided into 5 age groups to cater for every stage. In-cabin sitting can be booked 24 hours in advance - get in early as availability isn’t guaranteed.
Gratuities are added on a daily basis and can be modified at the guest services desk - there’s also a 15% gratuity added to all bar tabs.
