– Cruise Passenger 

“…We are just back from our week on MSC Splendida. In spite of being winter, we loved it and had a lovely time.The ship is huge and its beautiful and it shines from its cleanliness, we’ve been already in Poesia and Fantasia…”

– Cruise Critic 

“…ship was kept clean and tidy throughout the cruise, maintenance and cleaning was completed in each port. We had a balcony on the port side, which was adequate. (last year we had a balcony on the stern of the sister ship Pressiosa) cabin was cleaned every day. Double bed, sofa , desk, balcony, toilet and shower. Theme nights were advertised, but very few cruisers dressed up for the various themes at dinner.”
