Disappointed with Yacht Club

MSC Splendida Cruise Review by konr

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2016
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Yacht Club Deluxe Suite

I feel like MSC improved recently, but I didn't enjoy this cruise on 2016, even though it was on a Yacht Club cabin.

Pros:

- Yacht club area was very nice: amazing pool and hot baths!

- Nice excursions, specially the one to Ilhabela!

- Decent saunas, and an exclusive elevator from the YC area to the aurea SPA!

- Butler service, organizing your room and bringing breakfast to bed with domed plates!

Cons:

- Mediocre dinners. No lobster. Worst Hollandaise sauce I've ever had in my life.

- Although the cocktails were tasty, the quality of wines was terrible. Prosecco was often still, and we had a minuscule selection of drinks, even on YC areas. There was no craft beer, no Aperol Spritz, etc.

- We couldn't get free drinks on other areas of the ship with the YC pass. MSC fixed this issue recently, to be fair.

- No app

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Ilhabela

The borrachudos were no match for our desire to know the famous waterfalls of Ilhabela. Had a great tour guide and a great time there.

Buzios

Buzios is a busy place, with way too many clothing stores and overpriced restaurants. Fortunately we scheduled a boat excursion with and did lots of diving.
