Just back from our first msc cruise having been on at least 6 other cruises, it was our first and certainly our last. This was awful, firstly with the exception of the cabin staff and waiters the staff were rude and unhelpful. You would ... Read more

The ship is just amazing, beautiful, clean and well maintained. We had a balcony cabin and it was surprisingly roomy and very nicely decorated. I would rate the cabins and the steward service the same as 4star hotel at least. The ... Read more

Our first ever cruise was a test for us as we had only ever stayed in 5 star hotels previously and expected a lot. I must say that we were very pleasantly surprised in that the cruise with MSC on Fantasia yacht club was fantastic. Best ... Read more

Chose this cruise because other family members had made that choice. The ports of call were great choices and we decided to join them. The best thing about this ship and cruise line is the rooms and the ship itself. The worst thing is the ... Read more

Chose cruise mainly due to the price and it being a cruise line that we haven't been with before. The biggest disappointment was the number of children on board the ship. The children were very badly behaved, loud and unruly. Lots of ... Read more

The problem here is that by its nature, moving 4,000+ people of different nationalities, ages, languages and classes around the med is a logistical nightmare and for MSC to get it even 80% right would be a miracle. So starting with the ... Read more
