Outstanding and very different Cruise experiance

Sail Date: June 10, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The reason for this cruise was Svalbard/Spitsbergen, North Cape, Trumso and 5 nights in the Artic so different from Miami.   The Fyords and Bergen where the dessert.  The lagniappe was Hamburg.  Met all our expectations

Cabin / Stateroom
Upgraded to a balcony. Excellent cabin, large, airy, everything as it should be, good bed, air, bathroom, closets space, safe, mini bar.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Normal, well organized, German efficiency. On and off. And free transfers by bus by MSC to the train station which saved money.
Ship Quality
Outstanding vessel MSC Splendida
Destinations and Excursions
The reason for this particular cruise is the stops. The excursions where very good and well organized... Amazing beauty throughout Norway and Svalbard
Onboard Activities
Normal activities
Actually a different show every night on a 14 day cruise... They where simply amazing. Outstanding, far better than what you get from the American cruise lines, so we thought.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The one area MSC an improve on is food quality. At least its not competative with Cruise operators catering to Americans


The Yacht Club takes away from the experience, as it limits parts of ships you can not visit, a resturant you can not use. Completely opposed to "class" of access to be able to do anything on board. Cruise lines heading in wrong way, and we will avoid these types of ships when ever possible.
