MSC Splendida Cruise Review by EAaH
- Sail Date: February 2019
- Destination: Middle East
- Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom – Fantastica
This was a whole other experience however. Embarcation was smooth and easy. I found the staff to be much more friendly this time. Everyone we met were very helpful and positive.
Food in the main dinig room was good, but again my travel partner felt the portions were too smal, so we used the buffet most nights. This time the food was actually warm in the buffet so that was good.
The shows were ok, the acobatics were very good! Entertainment was good, even fun at times.
The ship was a little worn down I felt. Needs to be freshened up a little. Could be cleener at times too. Our cabin was not very cleen, did not look like the night stands had been dusted for weeks. I wanted to complain, but my mother did not want to be a "Bother" so she cleened herself. The cabin which was an interior had a good size and a good layout.
The itinerary was great! We did one excursion arranged through msc, this was ok, but not Great. Other than that we explored on our own.
It was overall a more calm feeling on the ship this time. Might have something to do with the guests this time, other nationalities on this route I felt. But there is a problem with acustics in the public areas. It gets so loud. My mum use a hearing aid, but was unable to use it because of all the noise made it uncomfortable for her. Which again made me into one of those who contributed to the loudness to make her hear me. Not good.

City TourInteresting tour with a good guide. But not worth the money. Also our group were slow getting back on the bus on each stop for some reason. Made us very delayedView All 26 City Tour Reviews
