  3. MSC Splendida
We had sailed with M.S.C. before and really enjoyed the experience. We went in July, having gone in June the pervious year, and we found a lot more children on board. We stayed in Barcelona for 2 nights before the cruise, and 2 nights after the cruise. It is one of our favorite cities and we love exploring it, M.S.C. embarkation must be one of the smoothest in any cruise line, luggage is taken from you as soon as you arrive, you are on board before you know it. Our cabin was not ready for an hour, so we were directed to the welcome buffet where a delicious was waiting. Our balcony cabin was waiting in one hour, met our steward, we even had a pillow menu! There was four in our party and we had a table for four at dinner. the menu changes every night and if you decide that you do not like your choice, there is no problem in getting you a replacement from the menu. In the evenings there is a range of entertainment, although with the ship being full. there was a problem with seating in some of the reception areas, but usually once the second seating dinner went, we had ample room. We enjoy going on tours but were disappointed in La Spezia when the wine tasting tour was cancelled, we only knew the night before, but the shuttle bus took you from the ship for free. I think the tours are good value and very informative. Already looking forward to next year, but think we will try a smaller M.S.C ship and we will be going in June.

Beautiful ship, friendly staff.
