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 ...

I have read several reviews of the Splendida MSC and must say I am very surprised with most reviews being top stars. I can not concur with the same high rating. For a great majority of time spend on the boat I was absolutely terrorized by gangs of unsupervised and out of control kids ( thanks for port excursions!). It was impossible to enjoy cup of coffee, dinner or even alone time in your cabin ...

Our first cruise, entered with a spirit of hope and excitement soon to be dashed! The initial shock was the wave of disembarking passesnges at Barcelona who almose trampled us as we tried to board and the slow and inefficient boarding procedures. After hours of queueing, a very friendly member of staff brought us to our well appointed cabin. The cleanliness of the ship and efficiency of the ...

We have just returned from an MSC Splendida cruise..The previous reviews warned of bad behavior and overcharges for usual amenities..We still were quite excited about the ports of call and our trip.MSC had given the incorrect time for embarkation..as 4:00 p.m.with all passengers needing to be on board at least 2 hours prior.They also missed the correct time of debarkation as 2:00 p.m. instead of ...

This was my first cruise. I was really looking forward for this as other members of my family, including my wife had gone on cruises previously and were really happy with them from all aspects. However, I must say that I ended up as disappointed with this cruise as much as I was looking forward for it before! First of all, before going any further in my review, I have to tell you that the main ...

I was an experienced cruiser but had persuaded my girlfriend to try cruising for the first time.we were both really looking forward to the trip, firstly because I had talked up my previous good experiences on other cruise ships and secondly because this was a brand new ship and supposed to be wonderful in every respect.It did not live up to our expectations however. Firstly the staff ratio was ...
