We chose this cruise on itinerary and dates. However will never sail with MSC again because there is so much missing compared to other cruise lines. We had bought the drinks package thankfully because you couldn't even have a glass of ... Read more

Although I have experienced some of the ports of call in the past (on a Suez transit to Dubai on QM2) I wanted to experience a 'standard' 7-day Dubai returned trip. And in my opinion MSC is better than Costa and RCI that also operate here, ... Read more

We did not pay much attention to reviews about MSC Musica until after we already booked a cruise and got quite upset in our choice of MSC, but still hoped for better experience with them. Yet, we were prepared for average (or even below ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever, so we went with no preconceived ideas and no expectations. We chose the cruises mainly on price, it was cheap and it went to interesting places in the Middle East that I wanted to go to. We knew we would ... Read more

By this I mean you have to PAY for water, even in the dining room. It's free in the buffet restaurant, but that's the only place. Even the gym doesn't have water fountains! There are no fresh flowers anywhere (they're plastic) and the ... Read more

Like many others we had read some not great reviews of MSC cruises and were aware that this might well be why they seemed consistently cheaper than some other cruise lines. This, however was one of only two cruise itineries that fitted in ... Read more

I'm at a loss to understand all the negative reviews regarding MSC cruise lines. This is our second cruise with MSC but we have previously cruised with NCL and RC. After 9 cruises i have come to the conclusion that all cruise lines and ... Read more

First time on MSC. Cabin on deck 5 (5064) was so noisy it was impossible to sleep. It took 3 days of complaining before we were moved. Once moved to deck 8 the cabin was fine. Buffett restaurant was not good, very difficult to find a ... Read more

The biggest reasons for taking a cruise are, for me, the food, the service and the entertainment (of all kinds) on board. Lets start with the food. It was terrible. Even after just 5 nights they started repeating earlier menus in the ... Read more

Slow and tedious embarkation, arrogant office staff but very friendly cabin staff. Difficult to find a table at buffet. Once walked for nearly 1 hour at lunchtime to get a seat. Poorly organised and crowd push in and shove, no system at ... Read more
