    Splendida Review

    Hi, We had a great trip. Not sure if you are boarding in Rome or Genoa. We boarded in Rome around 1pm, no waiiting or lineup at all. We got our sail cards and then were escorted to our room by a cabin steward. A very nice touch. One tip I will offer, if you are booked in an adjoining room, see if you can get it changed. We were in a balcony room with an adjoining door and it was a little noisy at times, loud family with kids next door. Any other questions just drop me a line. Dave

    Splendida Review

    Hi, Just got back form Splendida Jan 14-25. Soft drinlks are almost 3 Eur a piece with tip. Cappcuchino 2 Eur with tip. Depends on how many you are going to consume a day. My wife and I did not get the unlimited package and I think we made out better one at a time. Not real heavy consumers 2 -3 a day. Hope this helps

    Back from our cruise on the Splendida...

    Hi, Yes there is no free water at dinner. You must purchase a water packge or buy bottled water one at a time. We bought the water package 514 14 one litre bottles, about $30 U.S. We had one or two bottles with dinner each night. You get a book of tickets that can be used everywhere. As for breakfast free water and juice is provided and at lunch the water machines are available though they do not advertise this fact. Hope this helps.

    Back from our cruise on the Splendida...

    Thought I would answer a few of the questions. Booze on board not a problem at all. Brought beer on board in Rome and wine several times, Barcelona and Tenerife. They do have x-ray machines but at no time was there any sense of tight policies on booze brought aboard anywhere. Any other questions, just drop me a line. We had a great time. Dave

    Roll Call MSC Splendida Jan 14 - Jan 25

    Hi depews, No first roll call I have ever started. This will be cruise #5 for us and we always have a great time. The last Med cruise on the Jade was fantastic. Kind of a mixed bag of reviews for MSC, but we are pretty relaxed so I'm not to concerned. Would rather get a more European experience on the ship anyways. There are four of us going on the trip, us and another couple.
  9. My wife and I, and another couple are sailing on this cruise RT Rome. Anyone else booked?

    Definitive Poutine in Quebec City

    Chez Ashton. My wife was stationed in Quebec City in the Canadian Navy for some time. This is the best place in town for authentic Poutine.
