Splendour secret staircase?

Recommended Posts

When we were on Legend, there was a " secret staircase" that went from deck 8 aft up into the Solarium... Very handy for that morning cup of tea! This is not shown on the deck plan......I wondered if there was one on Splendour?

Is the secret staircase on other ships? Sailing Liberty this summer.

I've only seen it on Vision class ships.

Short answer, no, our vacation dance card is full :). 7 cruises( non out of UK) , 3 weeks in Portugal, 2 weeks to Corfu , one week with our grandson, phew.

When I am home I look after our neighbour's cat when she goes away.

We had an Aft JS on Freedom deck 7. I used the crew stairs to go to WJ for afternoon nachos. Gotta spice things up

Bad boy. You're lucky they didn't take away some of your C&A points.

Laura would be Pissed. :eek: it was a huge time saver instead of walking all the way to the lifts

It's a very clean stair well. I was impressed.

I think those "secret stairs" are supposed to be for crew use only. Used to be a sign stating crew use.

Definitely not crew only on Legend and Vision.

I plan to "investigate" a set of crew stairs from an aft area on deck 7 of Grandeur - short cut to WJ.:o

That will be a "long cut" as WJ is forward on Grandeur.

Where is it located on Vision? We're in GS8018 on 1/30 sailing.

 

Thanks, Kevin

All Vision and Sovereign class ships have WJ in the forward area.

I meant the staircase.

Deck 8, starboard side, about 2/3 of the way aft from the centrum.

 

Legend is the same, except on the port side.

Is the access port or starboard on Splendour?? It was port on Legend....

Don't know for sure, but I'd guess port side since Splendour and Legend are twins.

There is one on Rhapsody. It comes out at the front of the spa area from Deck 8. We were annoyed to find the stairs on the Radiance deck plan are just the crew ones.

Park Cafe?

Up the secret stairs to Park Café, get beef roll, back to aft balcony cabin.

Repeat as often as necessary over the next 7 days!!! ;)

my mistake ..... I may have been thinking of the RAdiance. Had an aft stateroom and remember the stairs and a sign saying crew only.

Much closer, but I suspect you would end up in the spa area.

 

I got a massage on Legend last December. I had a port cabin just in front of the secret stairs. I headed to the Centrum stairs to go to spa and passed a spa worker just as I got to the Centrum. After heading up the stairs and walking to the spa I noticed that same spa worker standing at the desk. Totally freaked out until I remembered those back stairs. After massage, I went down them back to cabin

We found those stairs to be a much less public way of going to/from the gym.:)

I wonder why it's even there, just seems odd

All the suites are on deck 8, so maybe the stairs are for the convenience of the suites? Just guessing.
