Just got back form a 6 night med cruise on this ship, Embarkation and disembarkation went as well as expected. In the main the ship was nice, the public areas are good and clean. Cabins (we were in 11210) was very nice. Dinning:- The buffet. This was probably the best food you will find on the ship and the best for selection. If you like your coffee I'd would recommend the ...

MSC Splendida We stayed on the MSC Splendida for one week! The experiences was from positive through to negative. The negative feeling after the trip unfortunately prevailed: it was our first and last cruise and we could not wait to leave the ship at the end. In general: The Splendida is an imposing and beautiful ship, which has a lot to offer. It appears neat and clean. It was also ...

We got the Fantastica experience that included 12 drinks per passenger. Even though it was in MSC's computer system, we did not get the drink vouchers as we embarked. For one reason or another the reception staff couldn't take care of the issue right away and we had to make 3 trips to the reception desk. However, that was the only issue we had. Ship: It was immaculate. Very beautiful. ...

Embarkation and disembarkation went surprisingly smoothly. Cabin was adequate but we couldn't enjoy balcony due to chain smokers on next balcony. Unfortunate because husband got quite ill with bronchitis and URI and were quarantined on day 6. MSC says smoking isn't tolerated on balconies but maids apparently missed clue of ash tray on balcony. Bed was comfortable. Food was below average. ...

I have just recently returned from a cruise on board the MSC Splendida. I travelled with my partner and our 2 boys aged 10 and 7. We did the Mediterranean cruise from Genoa for 7 nights 27th May – 3rd June. We have cruised with MSC once before, last year on the MSC Preziosa so knew exactly what to expect. The Splendida is practically exactly the same except for some different themed bars ...

Mediocre Cruise Made Bad Due to Poor Service

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

This was our 4th cruise, and our 3rd in the Mediterranean; we are two mid-30's Americans who live in Switzerland. It was also our first (and last) on MSC Cruise Lines. If everything was executed perfectly, the cruise only had the potential to be mediocre – but time-after-time the staff either made mistakes or were simply rude in a way that really ruined the experience. The issues started even ...

We sailed on the Splendida last September and loved everything which is why we booked again. Everything was pretty much the same except for the food. On our last cruise there were 7 courses each night and generous portions as well as delicious choices. This time it was only 3 courses and they were small. There was one gala night but still only 3 courses so not sure what made it a gala night. We ...
