Was on the Splender in November. Was out of Galveston and was a 12 cruise to the Panama Canal. The ship was worn, but was clean and constantly being maintained and carpet replaced in some area after each return. The stateroom was very clean, could tell the age of couch and such. Food was good, but not excellent. Overall the ship was great and the trip to the canal was well worth it. Am sailing from Galveston again this November on the Rhapsody.
