First time MSC cruisers! Splendida balcony

Recommended Posts

:)Hi we have cruised with P&O, Royal and Carnival but next February will be our first with MSC. We have a balcony cabin and hopefully first sitting for dinner.

Do we need to know anything else; are there formal nights? Are the additional gratuities added?

Also any other tips.....

Thanks in advance

There will be 2 formal nights on a 7 night cruise.


The Daily Service Charge is €10pppd, which is added to your onboard account daily. MSC also adds a Unicef donation of €1 pp to your account!


The onboard currency will be Euros on your sailing.


If you don't have an all-inclusive drinks package included, you can prebook one for £23 pppd. If you wait 'til onboard, it will be €26 + 15% service charge.

Have you downloaded the 'MSC for Me' app? I believe it applies to Splendida now. We were on her last April for the crossing from Dubai to Japan; it wasn't operational 'til she arrived and began her Summer season in China.
