Review summary

Our first cruise with MSC and we booked the Yacht Club on Splendida and what an excellent choice we made. The food, drinks, service, cleanliness of the ship and the staff were amazing, we could not fault anything, it was perfect and everything we wanted. From now on all our holidays will be in the Yacht Club, it was the best cruise we have had and we have done Marella, NCL and Royal Caribbean. I cannot rate it highly enough, thank you MSC.

L'Olivo Restaurant

5 out of 5

Outstanding - the choice and quality of the food and drinks were excellent. Staff and Head waiter couldn’t do enough to help and all wanted us to have a perfect dining experience. We have dined at the Ritz in London and I would say that the service in the Yacht Club was better. Highly recommended.

Fabulous - lovely area where it was a pleasure to relax and enjoy the sun. Area was quiet which we loved with plenty of room. Bar and buffet area had lots of choice and the service was excellent. Faultless.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very comfortable cabin with lots of space and small walk-in wardrobe. It was kept immaculate and our butler and cabin steward were always around if we needed anything.

Ship tip

If you can afford it do not hesitate to book the Yacht Club - it was an amazing experience that we will definitely book on future cruises.
