Sub Par At Best

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

The ship was very nice. It was clean and the casino was very nice. However.. The cruise didnt allow for day time on the ship. If you wanted to get off at a port and have a good time, you would need to wake up very early and then rush to get back on the ship. By that time it was too cold to be outside so there weren't many things to do. The drinks were of course highly priced and the food had to be choked down. Every aspect of the food was laughable when i didn't want to cry. It was worse the worst food i ever tasted. We stopped going to dinner the 3rd night and would only eat when we were off the ship. Not to mention our friend got food posioning and had to suffer through that terrible experience. The ports were ok and Tunisa was a hell whole that should not be visited. There is no good reason for that place to be a stop. Everything on the ship closed early the water in the hot tubs were cold, everything was expensive, everything was regulated, even the cheap glasses in the cabin, nothing was free not even water, the but staff was alright but then started to get on my nerves by the end of the cruise, i felt harrased and not on vacation.

Pros: Not much but the suite and the fact it was a new ship


Recommends MSC Splendida? No.

Food and Dining
Ship Quality
Nice new and clean
Cabin / Stateroom
Paid 3 times the price for a suite so it better be nice.
Service and Staff
They seemed like all they cared about was not getting fired, didn't go above and beyond for nothing.
