Chose this cruise as from Southampton and reasonable cost. Ship lovely and excellent dining and cafe staff but not so good bar staff. Very good balcony cabin. However this is as far as plus sign goes. Don't be fooled by the enticement of low initial cost. Fortunately we bought a drinks package, as the prices on board are extremely high. Courtesy bus charges by MSC is certainly a money ...

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 ...

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 ...

Embarkation Embarkation was quick and efficient and we were on board in minutes and accompanied in person to our stateroom, where our luggage was waiting. Cabin Clean, Tidy, Nicely Furnished and decorated. Wardrobe space sufficient. Free safe, TV with pay for movies, Mini Bar. Bath Tub and shower - nice to have both! I was disappointed with the balcony - having booked an unobstructed sea ...

This is one of the worst cruise ever. The service, food, entertainment and shore excursions are poor compare to other cruise lines. Most of the negative reviews for this ship online are accurate and I will not recommended this cruise to anyone especially British and American. I have to say the ship is quite nice and the state room is very comfortable and nicely decorated, but that"s all the ...

On our recent cruise on the MSC splendida, we were disappointed with the poor service provided particularly for English speaking passengers. The only time we saw our cabin steward was when he walked in without knocking. We ran out of loo paper three times, as did other guests we spoke to. The internet service, particularly when at sea was a complete rip off. At 12 euro for 60 mins it was ...

After reading all the reviews I was expecting the worst. So here is my summary:1. Ship is beautiful, clean and spacious. 2. Staff are unfriendly and in a lot of cases have poor English.3. Italian seems to be the preferred language. 4. Defiantly buy a drinks package!5. Food is generally very bad, unless you like junk food...6. There is a service charge for everything you buy even if you order at ...

Horrible Cruise Line MSC Splendida

Reception Unlike the Royal Caribbean, the reception at the MSC was so cold. People here had a straight face and checked us in as if they were doing us a favor. As soon as we checked in, we were told to proceed to another counter where a person with a very stern face pointed a finger towards some papers, they were promoting packages. I asked them If I could see it after I have gone into my ...

We booked our cruise directly with MSC (UK). Our flights were from Manchester to CDG Paris and connecting from CDG Paris to Genoa where we would be met and transported by coach to Port. When our flight details arrived we saw that there was barely an hour between arriving and connecting flight to Genoa. We phoned MSC and said we were concerned as CDG is a large terminal and we didn`t think there ...
