The Yacht club experience

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 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. ...

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 ...

After our very first cruise, Costa in the Caribbean, which was ok, the islands are beautiful, but even though you have a luxury cabin, there are no privileges, no priority and no flexibility ! and it cost a bomb ! we said never again ! family persuaded us to try again with MSC Yacht Club, well what a difference ! it was just great, the mediterranean this time, early booking gives you half price ...

The service is incredibly good....you are really pampered by the team of concierge and butlers, and other service personnel if you are in Yacht Club. This is the second time I was in Yacht Club accommodation....this time it even surpasses impression of my last trip which was also great. The quality of the meals served on L'Olivio restaurant is now really 5 star standard and service cannot be more ...

This was my first Mediterranean cruise I have only cruised in Australia and Asia and New Zealand, and I was so impressed. Very easy getting onto Splendida, in Singapore it can take hours to board a ship and even longer to get off. The Spendida is such a very beautiful ship. What I want from cruise accommodation is something grand and opulent, to make me feel special and pampered and Spendida sure ...

YC1 On The Splendida

This was our second cruise with MSC and our third overall (Disney Dream was our first). I had originally booked a Bella Balcony cabin but was upgraded somehow to YC1. We ended up in cabin 16033. The Yacht Club experience was more than we had ever hoped for. It was so good, in fact, that we will probably try to go YC again if we can even remotely afford it. If I were to try and find some negatives ...

So there you have it in a nutshell. We loved our cruise overall but ended up practically bronchial from the vast cloud of cigarette smoke that plumed out of the casino and into much of the surrounding areas. Perhaps you are considering sailing with MSC and would like more information than that one tagline. Would we sail with MSC again? Absolutely. Why? Our embarkation in beautiful Marseille ...

We miss the Splendida! We had a great cruise, leaving from Barcelona on Dec 2nd and returning to the same on Dec. 9th. The ship is immaculate, well-maintained, and has very nice, spacious gathering areas. We were staying in the Yacht Club, which really defined our experience on the Splendida. You are simply pampered from the moment you set foot on board. You're met by bellhops and butlers who ...
