  3. MSC Splendida
We are a couple on the 60´s, more than 10 cruises before. Nice looking ship. Very port intensive cruise. Price below competitors. Good bars and lounges. Service very attentive. The line attitude looks cheap, and charge for everything. No toiletries even in a suite. If you buy a drinking package, the only beer available was Heinecken; wines spumante, red, rose and white, period; no choices. Good coffee and liquors in the package. Excellent bars and lounges with above average live music. The main restaurant is very nice, the service is good. We consider the service organization very professional. But, and is a very large but, the food was served in small portions, the ingredients were not first quality (i.e, sirloin steak was not in the menu) and in general the taste and whole experience was far from a satisfactory one, even the pasta and rissoto were not al dente, considering MSC is an italian line. The buffet lacked quality and space organization.

Food was bad.

Cabin Review

Suite – Aurea
Cabin S3 10005
Large cabin, completely forward. We did not quite understand the fact the windows were fixed; without balcony. We did not like, but was our responsability.
