Splendida MSC Yacht Club

After our very first cruise, Costa in the Caribbean, which was ok, the islands are beautiful, but even though you have a luxury cabin, there are no privileges, no priority and no flexibility ! and it cost a bomb ! we said never again ! family persuaded us to try again with MSC Yacht Club, well what a difference ! it was just great, the mediterranean this time, early booking gives you half price ...

Never Again MSC

We usually cruise the Caribbeans but wanted to show our daughters a bit of Europe for a change. Although the food reviews had us worried we figured it couldn't be too hard to find something eat. Wrong! I can only say that most of the time half the buffet was closed and the other half was over crowded. They served the same food the whole cruise more or less (recycling everything). They had ...

International Feel; Good for Americans Willing to Step Out of their Comfort Zone

I'd hate to see Americans skip this cruise ship and itinerary based on the mixed reviews so here is mine. Our main goal was to have our two teens exposed to new people, food, cultures and customs and to stay interested in their French and Spanish classes in school. We achieved that and way more with memories for a lifetime! Easy embarkation in Genoa - no line, breezed right through since we ...

A Tad Disappointing

My husband, child (age 13), and I along with another family of three decided to sail on the MSC Splendida during the Christmas season. This is our second cruise (first cruise was with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines). The U.S. website was not user friendly when accessing the web check-in. After many calls to both my travel agent and MSC, I finally received our tickets and luggage tags (the day before ...

Bad customer service, great ship

We cruised on Splendida on November 9th round the Med. After having many problems with customer service prior to the cruise I had vowed never to sail with MSC again, but it was all forgotten when we were on board. Firstly we had flown from Gatwick (England) to Genoa, the flight was with BA as part of the package but we were only landing around 4pm so it was cutting it a bit fine. It was a Sunday ...

So Comfortable

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was the second of two back-to-back cruises (Fantasia/Splendida) as a solo traveller. The nice surprise at check-in was an upgrade to the Yacht Club. ( since I had paid full double rates for both cruises, it certainly would not have cost the company but never the less, it was very nice). The biggest advantage was it was so much less crowded but the service levels, food and wine were also a ...

YC1 On The Splendida

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This was our second cruise with MSC and our third overall (Disney Dream was our first). I had originally booked a Bella Balcony cabin but was upgraded somehow to YC1. We ended up in cabin 16033. The Yacht Club experience was more than we had ever hoped for. It was so good, in fact, that we will probably try to go YC again if we can even remotely afford it. If I were to try and find some negatives ...

This was our second trip this year with MSC - our first was in June on MSC Fantasia where we had a fantastic time and made us book again with MSC. We booked our transfers with MSC from Linate to Genoa & back - they were on time and we found our rep as soon as we got our luggage - definitely we will book transfers again with MSC. The boat is beautiful and very well kept - décor is immaculate and ...

Spendida = No difference to Divina. Forget MSC

This ship is worse than the Divina! The food that we ate in the restaurant was the same as the Divina on the same day. But the food was cold when it was supposed to be hot. Boring. Thank goodness for the Indonesian waiter: always a smile for his Australian table. Tried to be efficient but the food was slow coming and cold. Divina wins points here. The Maitre D' was past his use by date. Could not ...
