Splendida - Western Mediteranean
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
Once on board and settled all was quite good. We did book a special package of tours they offered of 3 cities for $109 euro a savings of roughly $40, a reasonably good deal. Our cabin location was quite good just off an More elevator stairway access, other than the odd child playing in the hall not noisy at all.
Food was good not great great which is quite all right. Dinners, I generally chose the regional dinner menu and they were all very good. My wife who for dietery reasons generally went with the chicken or a fish dinner with vegtables.
Lunches we went to the buffet and had no problem finding something satisfactory from a spagehtti to a bowl of soup or make up a sandwich. They also had pizza, burgers, hot dogs, fries for those who can't live without more north american fare.
Breakfasts we did the buffet and I generally had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage a side fruit etc. again lots of choices like cereals, yogurts, toast, the european rolls and meat,cheese etc. No complaints.
The tours were all good, informative and delivered what they advertised. Tunis was the only exception because of bad weather we were delayed arriving and the tour was rushed and we did not get into the museum, no apologies from the tour company or MSC. Just thats the way it was.
Overall the cruise was good value for the money. Less
Cabin review: 1010102
We stayed in Cabin 10102, a typical balcony cabin on the Splendida. Our location was across from a stairway, elevator access, we were concerned about noise initially but no worries the only noise we really heard were some children playing in the hall. Room was clean, porter was in and changed towels quite regularly and as long as you don't hang your towels up and put them on the floor they get changed.
