Just returned from a fabulous cruise in the MSC Yacht club. Having previously experienced the many benefits of the Yacht club several years earlier on the Fantasia the sister ship Splendida exceeded our expectations and while much costlier than a balcony the exceptional service we experienced made our wedding anniversary a very special occasion. Iglu provided the flights and transfers and everything went very well.

We have cruised with MSC twice before - once 20 years ago, and once 12 years ago. The ships were much smaller then. Splendida is massive. Nearly 4000 passengers, so it's like a small town. This is good for stability in rough seas, but not so good for personalised service. The ship was very clean. Cabins (we had a balcony) of a good size and well-equipped. Many things come at an additional cost, and although gratuities are added to the final bill, there is a 15% service charge on all drinks. Various "packages" are available to buy (Wi-Fi, wine, coffee etc) so it is worth looking at these to see if you could get better value than buying ad hoc. There was also a charge for shuttle buses to get you into town at the various ports of call. A bit of a cheek. If the ship is so big that you cannot moor it close to town, there should not be a charge for a shuttle. In Parma you can walk to the dock gate and catch a local bus or on/off tour bus, but nobody told you that! Entertainment shows were dancing shows of a reasonable standard, but very short - only about half an hour. Not a patch on Royal Caribbean. Our main gripe was the evening meal. We had opted for 2nd sitting, and I'm sure I read that this would be at 8.30 pm, but it was 9.30. Presumably this suited Spanish passengers, but everyone else thought it much too late. Service was slow, food of average quality, and portions very small. MSC used to provide silver service and there was always a fish course. Not any more. We complained on the second night, and a procession of restaurant managers came to see us. Things did improve after that, but it seems that the MSC glory days have gone. A real shame.

We tried the liner MSC Splendida. Everything was excellent. Highly recommended
