We chose this cruise as a way to experience an inside cabin - we had always had a balcony before, but seeing all of the great offers available for insides we thought a two night break would be the ideal way to give it a go, and if we ... Read more

After our very first cruise, Costa in the Caribbean, which was ok, the islands are beautiful, but even though you have a luxury cabin, there are no privileges, no priority and no flexibility ! and it cost a bomb ! we said never again ! ... Read more

The best thing about MSC Splendida is the crystal staircases in the main atrium. Otherwise, in my opinion, corporate policy for this cruise line needs a serious overhaul. The ship seems poorly managed and directives from the top down ... Read more

Having read many of the reviews, embarked on the cruise with some trepidation. We had the most wonderful experience, it is difficult to find fault. Food was outstanding, we had room service for breakfast and ate lunch in the Villa ... Read more

Seen one MSC Fantasy class ship seen them all (we had previously been on Magnifica), BUT despite similarities they do have unique touches. The nightly theatre entertainment was good (not stunning or amazing) - but certainly enjoyable ... Read more

Two facts about MSC cruises become apparent within a few hours of boarding the ship - in our case the Splendida to the Norwegian fjords. One: it is all about making money and two: the cruise is not meant for non- Europeans. Of the almost ... Read more

Embarkation at HAM which was panic, heat and confusion. Being offered to pose for a souvenir photo at the end of the ordeal was not a good idea. The cabin was great. The way the ship was driven was great. Heads off to the nautical ... Read more

Msc was a big disappointment. The fact that they do not have ice tea or lemonade for you to drink is ridiculous. They do not cater to American cruisers.Americans like to have coffee with dinner at a formal dinning room, it was not ... Read more

We usually cruise the Caribbeans but wanted to show our daughters a bit of Europe for a change. Although the food reviews had us worried we figured it couldn't be too hard to find something eat. Wrong! I can only say that most of the ... Read more
