MSC Splendida We stayed on the MSC Splendida for one week! The experiences was from positive through to negative. The negative feeling after the trip unfortunately prevailed: it was our first and last cruise and we could not wait to leave the ship at the end. In general: The Splendida is an imposing and beautiful ship, which has a lot to offer. It appears neat and clean. It was also ...

We chose this cruise because it visited all but one places we had not been to. Having travelled on the MSC Opera we knew what to expect and then it was a good trip with the only short falls being the way it catered for mainly non-UK guests. Embarkation went reasonably well, very very busy at Valencia, people jostling about and queue jumping, checking in cases then queueing again. Disembarkation ...

Since friends and I were already in Italy we decided to try a Eurocentric cruise. Our travel agent suggested MSC and we booked the Splendida from June 11th through June 17th. We found to our surprise that many things that are covered on American cruise lines were considered extra by MSC. We were nickel and dimed to death on this cruise. We wound up spending $700 more than we expected to by the ...

Embarkation was quite good although quite rushed. disembarkation similar. Cabin superb as was cabin staff Ship was luxurious but unless ...

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 ...

We spent a good week because the family company we had was great, but the service on the cruise is better. I have been to other shipping companies and this was the first time with MSC and I think some services are better. To start the tour service, I think they should take care of the explanations of the excursions to the clients, they do not give enough information. The dinners are very ...

We sailed on the Splendida last September and loved everything which is why we booked again. Everything was pretty much the same except for the food. On our last cruise there were 7 courses each night and generous portions as well as delicious choices. This time it was only 3 courses and they were small. There was one gala night but still only 3 courses so not sure what made it a gala night. We ...

We chose this cruise as there wasn't a lot of choice for the time of year. We have visited most of the ports before, so the main purpose of this trip was to chill out. We are seasoned cruisers and have used most of the main cruse lines, including 2 previously with MSC and have had all sorts of experiences with them from dreadful to pleasantly surprising, so we didn't have any great expectations. ...

Many MSC fans will take issue with my review, but I write it to help cruisers who have traveled with other lines - for you, I believe you will rate your experience on this MSC ship as only average. But let me say some good things first- have seen claim that food in dining room was not hot- in our case, not true. The other claim- staff not friendly, also not on our cruise. So let's discuss food - ...

Age 70s

Selected this cruise as a late break when very little choices were available at the time. Initially we were very impressed with the speed of embarkation at Barcelona, but this was quickly dispelled by having to wait around for some time for access to our cabin due to cleaning/preparation work to be carried out. The ships appearance was good and seemed clean, modern and well organised, our first ...
