Only travel on MSC if you upgrade to the yacht club. Unless its a last minute decision or looking for a budget trip don't travel on this cruise line.

Relaxing Mediterranean cruise on the MSC Splendida by mb222

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We had a very relaxing time on the cruise and enjoyed nearly every minute. The MSC Splendida was a nice cruise ship for its type. This is not a luxury cruise ship, but is clean and well kept. We feel that the ratings of MSC are lower than they should be, at least based on our experience. The majority of the passengers were of course European. North American, Australian and New Zealand travelers may find the European passengers "cold" or less open to talk. There was an obvious socio-cultural difference we noticed and sensed that some of the passengers were a bit taken a back by this.

Week on the Splendidia by bikefox

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Nice ship and itinerary, too crowded at times. We liked to food, but the selections didn't change much. Enjoyed the entertainment, but most of it was difficult to understand since it was in Italian. Prices for drinks and excursions were reasonable. Overall, it was just too crowed to enjoy most of the time.

Book into the Yacht Club. It costs a little more but you will have a more luxurious cruise and save money in the end

the entertainment was terrible... the pizza required a steak knife to cut... excursions were too expensive... the public bathrooms were often out of order...
