7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 23, 2011
Ship: MSC Splendida
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
physically the ship is ok, because of its size it is iherently difficult to move around in. Lift lines back up for hour or so at a time, service by cabin, excursion, and bufett personnel was not very good. the additional charges for everything added up very quickly. filed lots of comments with the line

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
amazed that we are sailing in the birthlace of culinary excellence and the food was very bland, tasteless and mostly dried out.
