This was a cruise with friends and I really enjoyed myself. The cabin was roomy and clean. All the staff were great and helpful. It caters more to Italians than North Americas and British Ship left and arrived at all ports on time. Didn't pay for any excursions as it was simple to do it yourself. Genova, bus outside 10 euros were tour and hop on and off. Rome bus to train station 2 ...

After reading reviews before we left I was unsure what to expect as some were very negative about the food, entertainment and the overall experience. We travelled as a family in January 2017 and found the following: The ship was exceptionally clean. Yes sometimes some food could have been warmer but overall the food was delicious, the right temperature and well presented. The staff are ...

This was our first cruise and we were certainly not disappointed. The ship was fantastic and all the staff were always smiling. Food was very good, all though I was surprised that they could not make a real caparchio. We had a balcony cabin. Lots of space, real nice bed and I loved the balcony. Bars and restaurants are luxurious and the staff were fast to take orders and serve. ...

We miss the Splendida! We had a great cruise, leaving from Barcelona on Dec 2nd and returning to the same on Dec. 9th. The ship is immaculate, well-maintained, and has very nice, spacious gathering areas. We were staying in the Yacht Club, which really defined our experience on the Splendida. You are simply pampered from the moment you set foot on board. You're met by bellhops and butlers who ...

I have read several reviews of the Splendida MSC and must say I am very surprised with most reviews being top stars. I can not concur with the same high rating. For a great majority of time spend on the boat I was absolutely terrorized by gangs of unsupervised and out of control kids ( thanks for port excursions!). It was impossible to enjoy cup of coffee, dinner or even alone time in your cabin ...

This was our 2nd cruise. Last year we were on the Norwegian Jade for the Madeira & Canary Islands cruise. Last year we cruised benauwd we got an amazing offer and this time it was because my husband ran the Barcelona Marathon and he wanted a rest afterwards. We embarked in Barcelona, because of warning we expected a long wait but we arrived at the terminal at 12.30 and were at 13.00 in our ...

We had read all of the reviews and by the time we had discounted the very best and the very worst, we were left with a reasonable view of the MSC Splendida and certainly one which we felt was worth what we were being asked to pay. Our intention was to have a few days break after Xmas and to explore a bit more of the Med which we hadn't seen before. We took note of comments about not booking trips ...

We flew by EasyJet from Gatwick to Barcelona. We used Ziptransfers for a pre-booked taxi and the guy was there waiting. 78 Euros return trip for 3 of us and luggage. We went to an overnight hotel at Eurostars Grand Marina on the port and a five minute stroll to Las Ramblas. The hotel was fabulous. The room was massive and the bathroom was to die for. I would return to this hotel fro a weekend stay ...

We embarked at Barcelona and were really impressed with the check in, We had checked in online and I would definitely recommend this as these are taken first. So we were on the ship in no time. Really happy at this point and was over the moon as we didn't pay a huge amount for what was looking to be a terrific experience for what was an extra break away. Would never normally go in ...
