It's really too bad for the people on board Splendor, to be looking forward to a vacation and have this happen. However, after what I've seen and read on the cruise boards, it looks like they did absolutely everything possible with what they had.
I feel the worst for the elderly, the sick, those who fell and needed crutches with no elevators. For the parents of young children - you deserve a medal as well! This was a serious problem and I'm not making light of it.
For the 'have fun cruising no matter what" I commend you. I would have had fun as well. Green beans or beets, just let me at the pool deck.
Anyone not wanting their free cruise, keep me in mind!
Happy Cruising, Mary
