Low price attracted us to this cruise. After interior cabins sold out, we booked an outside view. After booking, we got reciprocity for our RCI diamond plus status which gave us Black Card status on MSC. We also got a 5% discount on our ... Read more

First of all, my expectations were somewhat lower than for other cruises on Princess & NCL. I had read numerous reviews about MSC's notoriously bad service and was prepared to experience what these other passengers went through. ... Read more

When researching for an European cruise for Christmas holidays we came across this which was of quite low tariff. Having sailed in semi-luxury cruises before we were somewhat concerned about this cruise because of relatively low charges. ... Read more

We had always cruised with Royal Caribbean but were getting more and more frustrated by the dwindling service levels. Along came MSC with the amazing Status Match scheme which allowed us to take our first cruise with them and at their ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever and we loved every single moment of it. I have been working in the Airline Industry for 20 years now as a Flight Attendant, so traveling is nothing new to me. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but I ... Read more

This was the second time i have been on a cruise with MSC, the first occasion was on Preziosa in September 2015. I can honestly say i was once again disappointed with the quality of the food. The food was never hot or even warm, the food ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was very reasonable and the ports were appealing . Firstly the flight into Genoa was horrific the turbulence and the terrible landing dare I say by a woman pilot was the worst ever and we are seasoned ... Read more

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 ... Read more

Sailed October 2016
We sailed 10/5/16 from Southampton. We were on the MSC Preziosa several years back with extended family and were overall disappointed, so we chose to check out the Yacht Club this time around. Although it wasn't cheap (I think it doubled ... Read more

Excellent & Faultless!! We booked this cruise with a group of friends [agegroup 25 - 70 English] because it included the drinks package. One couple had only cruised with NCL and we wanted them to experience different standards. ... Read more

We chose this cruise for many reasons. It started in the U.K., an easy and inexpensive place to reach from the U.S., and also because we were looking for something where American's would be few and finally the price was very competitive. ... Read more

Having read varied reviews we went on MSC with low expectations but hopeful, as my husband understands Italian we may find experience better than others who have reviewed it. In fact the announcements on this trip started in English ... Read more

I chose this cruise based on the price and ports of call. The ship is big and beautiful, although the décor is so reflective (shiny/mirrored) that we had a hard time with finding things at first. It has a lot of sparkle everywhere. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was inexpensive. Also we had the drinks package. This ship does not cater for English people. The cabin TV had 2 channels in English, both news channels, out of forty available. Little things like no ... Read more

As a lifelong American, I enjoyed my European cruise on MSC Splendida VERY much. It was a peaceful, comfortable, cultured trip which I wasn't expecting due to reading previous negative reviews. I didn't encounter hoards of people who ... Read more

Not for us, the ship is large and holds over 4000 people and at times you know this, it has many different nationals, Germans being the dominant guests. The ship is very clean and well presented and the cabins are spacious , we had a ... Read more
