MSC Maybe

The ship was very clean, staff was good, cabins better than average. The food was 60% poor, 30% ok and 10% really good. You were fine if you filled up on the pasta which was good most of the time. The seafood was ...

One tea bag

This cruise was booked because of the price and the itinerary. We knew beforehand that we would probably be paying for everything except at foodtime. The Spendida was a lovely ship, and the number of ports visited ...

Even the Italians were unhappy

There were so many things wrong with this cruise I feel I need to start with what was right: the rolls and breads were delicious, the cabin steward did a fine job and our luggage was already at our cabin when we ...

Lovely Itinerary - Disgusting Food

My friends complain that today's cruises don't compare to the sumptuous feasts and fawning service of days gone by. If they had cruised on the MSC Splendida, they would have seen just how low the industry has sunk. ...
