Default Splendor or Voyager for Europe in 6/2009

We have never been to Europe before. We are bringing the whole family. Have any of you been on either of these and if so, which would you choose?

We are still trying to decide on Europe or Alaska. We have done the Caribbean before on the Mariner of the Seas and LOVED IT!!!

June 13 - Splendor of the Seas (older, smaller ship)
Venice, Italy
Split, Croatia
Corfu, Greece
Athens, Greece
Mykonos, Greece
Katakolon, Greece
Venice, Greece


June 14 - Voyager of the Seas (newer, bigger ship)
Barcelona, Spain
Naples/Capri, Italy
Rome, Italy
Florence/Pisa, Italy
Nice, France
Provence, France
Barcelona, Spain

We would love any input that anybody would have on either of the cruises or ships. Thanks!!!

We did the Voyager of the Seas in November (the last Italian route before it came to Galveston) and it was the best cruise we have been on. The ship and crew were fantastic and the excursions we booked from the ship could not have been any better. I would vote for Voyager of the Seas.

We have also done Alaska twice, and it was incredible both times. It all depends on your family. My girls were 17 when we went in November. There was a lot of walking on the excursions we did. We left the boat around 8:00 and didn't return to 8:00. We wanted to see and do everything we could. In Alaska it is a lot easier to get around. The ship docks right in town and you can just get off the ship and walk. It would be easier to go back to the ship to eat or rest in Alaska. Which ever you decide will be great. They are two different types of cruises. You won't be disappointed in either..

Have fun, ithey are both fantastic cruises,

My wife and I were on Slendour in 07, we did the same cruise out of Venice, the ports were a little different; but we enjoyed it so much. The ship (splendour) was a little smaller but the ship was in great shape, the crew was wonderful, and the weather was outstanding. We went in May 07. I will be on voyager this May; also going to Europe so I can't tell you about her yet; other than she will be coming out of drydock on May 13th. If u have any questions regarding Splendour and cruising out of Venice, I have a members review posted from 07
