The best thing about MSC Splendida is the crystal staircases in the main atrium. Otherwise, in my opinion, corporate policy for this cruise line needs a serious overhaul. The ship seems poorly managed and directives from the top down appear to be missing. Most of the young people working on board try to do the job cheerfully, but proper training appears to be lacking, or training looks as if ...

Kids Zone: MSC is not a kid friendly cruise for English speaking passengers. Last summer we took a Royal Caribbean cruise and my kids loved the kid's club so much that we could barely drag them out; however, this is not the case with the MSC cruise line. The staff keep the children in one small room playing the same movie over and over again in "Italian only". If the kids do not want to watch ...

The ship was very clean, staff was good, cabins better than average. The food was 60% poor, 30% ok and 10% really good. You were fine if you filled up on the pasta which was good most of the time. The seafood was always over cooked and dry. The meat very thin and covered in gravy to hide the lack of flavor. One night I ordered Osa Buca and I got a bone the size of a saucer with one bite of ...

First let me say I love to cruise, have sailed several lines and this is the first time i have taken the time to give a critique. I will keep this as short and honest as possible. The cruise port of Civitavecchia is ill equipped to board passengers and the staff totally unorganized.There are NO drop off areas,signage,or bus transports.Plan to walk a LONG way on this dreary port to get to the ...

We booked an 11 day cruise with the MSC Splendida due to the itinary and price. Having cruised several US based cruise lines before, I had an idea of how the experience can vary based on cruise line as well as ship to ship. We were immediately impressed by the Splendida. She is a beautiful ship. The decor was beautiful throughout, and our balcony room was fairly spacious with plenty of storage. ...

The Splendida is a beautiful ship but the onboard experience is totaly ruined by the quality of the food. I figured an Italian ship would have great food. How can you not even have great bread on a European ship? The food was so terrible that we would bring back sandwiches from our excursions. We didn't even bother going to the last 3 dinning room diners of the 7 day trip. Instead we tried the ...
