We chose the cruise for the itinerary and the sailing date, although we had a bad experience with MSC before. We did not book any transport or excursions with MSC but made our own arrangements. Embarkation was the usual tedious business, ... Read more

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

The travel Agency Arch Vacations chose this Cruise and ship. The cruise was to Ireland/Scotland/Germany. It had primarily Germans and Italians and only about 100 English speaking passengers. The travel agency should never book for English ... Read more

I have just read reviews of Splendida in November 2015 - very similar reviews. I do agree, however, that the embarkation in Barcelona left a lot to be desired. It was not organised at all and, unfortunately, no one person appeared to ... Read more

After you have cruised many times with different cruise lines, I think you start asking yourself why you choose a particular cruise line instead of the others. In our case a very important role is the itinerary and the price-value ... 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
