Boarding the Cruise Ship

The boat dropped us off at Piazzale Roma and we hopped in a taxi for the short ride to the pier. He took us right up to the luggage drop off for our boat, Royal Caribbean’s Splendour of the Seas. After going through a check-in process, we were able to board our cruise ship in the early afternoon.
This was our first time aboard a cruise ship and it was amazing to see how massive these ships are!
Our stateroom was located on one of the lower levels and was attended by a man from Honduras named Luis. He was always very friendly and often stopped to talk to us in the hall or offered helpful tips for that day’s port. He cleaned the rooms in the afternoon and did a turndown service while we were at dinner each night. Every other night he left towel animals on our bed.
After seeing a Bible in our room, Luis shared that he is also a Christian. At the end of the week, Steven wrote him a nice note to leave with the tip, thanking him for the hospitality and excellent service during the week. We told him if we don’t see him again, we’d see him in Heaven.  Here are the pictures of our stateroom for the week.
And of course, your video tour! This video was a second take as I tripped on the step up into the bathroom on my first video attempt.
