Fairly good but some very weak points

It was a family trip. Embarkation and disembarkation were fine and everything was very well organized. Ship. Everything was in very good condition. At this point I have a small complaint that the temperature was too low inside, considering that we were wearing bathsuits and sometimes wet. I got a cold during the trip because of this. Cabin. The cabin was fine, everything very new and ...

Far from the maddening crowds we selected Yacht Club for this cruise and wasn't disappointed. We were spoilt rotten by the attention and the care we received from the crew and members of the staff. We found the experience gratifying in every sense having sailed on this beautiful ship a couple of times before and have enjoyed every cruise we have been on. If there was a criticism they should vary ...

This was a cruise with friends and I really enjoyed myself. The cabin was roomy and clean. All the staff were great and helpful. It caters more to Italians than North Americas and British Ship left and arrived at all ports on time. Didn't pay for any excursions as it was simple to do it yourself. Genova, bus outside 10 euros were tour and hop on and off. Rome bus to train station 2 ...

After reading reviews before we left I was unsure what to expect as some were very negative about the food, entertainment and the overall experience. We travelled as a family in January 2017 and found the following: The ship was exceptionally clean. Yes sometimes some food could have been warmer but overall the food was delicious, the right temperature and well presented. The staff are ...

A Splendid Escape on SPLENDIDA

After 3 memorable experiences on MSC’s ships was not at all a surprise that I decided to comeback. This time I was cheating on my first MSC love “Preziosa” and choose, for a 9 day trip, her sister ship “Splendida” Since the very first moment on board MSC Splendida I had the “back home” feeling; the ship has the exact layout of the Preziosa with some theme-lines changed slightly, just perfect ...

This was our first cruise and we were certainly not disappointed. The ship was fantastic and all the staff were always smiling. Food was very good, all though I was surprised that they could not make a real caparchio. We had a balcony cabin. Lots of space, real nice bed and I loved the balcony. Bars and restaurants are luxurious and the staff were fast to take orders and serve. ...

We sailed 10/5/16 from Southampton. We were on the MSC Preziosa several years back with extended family and were overall disappointed, so we chose to check out the Yacht Club this time around. Although it wasn't cheap (I think it doubled the price for 2 of us), I must say that it was an enjoyable experience and I would consider repeating. Most of this review is focused around the Yacht Club ...

This was our third cruise on MSC Splendida and our seventh MSC cruise in total, having been twice on her sister ship MSC Fantasia and also on the Lirica and Armonia. The cruise departed Southampton on 5 October, heading towards Genoa via La Coruna, Lisbon, Gibraltar and Barcelona, having set off from Hamburg two days prior. The cruise was booked via the MSC Voyagers Club Selection, which is ...

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 ...
