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 chose this cruise on recommendation from our travel agent, the embarkation process was very smooth & quick, most of the staff onboard were friendly, helpful, courteous, we chose suite, it was spacious, with panoramic view, & small walk-in wardrobe, the disappointing thing was there were no amenities, except soap & shampoo from dispenser, we expected the suite to have more amenities, the ...

I was attracted to the low price but would travel again because of the great service and good food. There were lots of food choices, especially for vegetarians. I found the food in the buffet better than the dining room, but the dining room was still good most nights. The ship was clean, modern and well laid out In the evenings they had a trio who played in the main central lounge, two violins ...

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 ...

The ship is really nice and the cabin a very good size. The ship is really clean and the staff in the bars are very nice. The staff in the bora bora are only table cleaners. They don't speak to the guest or help anyone. The bora bora at breakfast time was like feeding time at the zoo. In the evenings it was a little better but the food was always cold. In 7 days we only got one meal that was any ...

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 ...

My daughter and I sailed on the Splendida. I'm going to cut to the important points because so many go on and on about what's good and what's bad, and I'm going to cover what was very important to us - food and entertainment. First, it's important to know that we are seasoned American cruisers. If you have cruised on Carnival, Princess, and Royal Caribbean, this cruise does not compare in the ...

We just returned from the MSC Splendida western mediterranean itinerary hitting Genoa, Marseilles, Barcelona< Tunisia, Malta, and Messina after having boarded in Civitavecchia. The biggest complaint was after the airline and transfer service got us to the port very efficiently by 10:30 we were left waiting to be boarded until almost 3pm. We were suggested to go into Civitavecchia but after an ...

Since this was our first cruise (m+f from Sweden, ages 30 and 27), we do not really have a frame of reference from comparing to other cruises. Having said that, we will try our best to rate this cruise in an objective manner. Embarkation: We purchased a Fly-and-Cruise package which greatly reduced the hassle of getting to Civitavecchia port (although changing flights in Amsterdam ...

Splendida food wasn't splendid!

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 ...
