We were a party of 8 (4 adults and 4 children, aged 9 -16). 6 of us were first time crusiers, and 2 have been on numerous cruises, including the Queen Mary, Royal Caribbean, and P&O. From their experience this cruise was as good as ... Read more

From start to finish this cruise ran like a well oiled machine. Yes you have to queue to get on and off the ship, the buffet can be very busy and sometimes you have to wait a little while for a drink. Dining in the restaurants is a whole ... Read more

As a solo traveller who needed to find something to do while other family members were busy elsewhere, I had little choice of cruise or cruise line. The MSC Fantasia dates fitted so that was it! However I did have to pay full double price ... Read more

We booked with MSC Cruises and particularly the fantasia as it had an excellent itinerary and had no days at sea. We booked directly with MSC and had the allegrissimo drinks package. We booked a mid ship balcony cabin on the 10th floor. I ... Read more

So full disclosure, I am an American whose mother immigrated to the United States from Italy at the age of 13, so I am used to loud relatives and delicious home cooked meals. My husband and I decided to book this cruise in celebration of ... Read more

The whole trip started out badly. We had booked the cruise through an agent, but where trying to sort out drinks packages, etc. ahead of embarkation. This was mostly due to MSC stating on their website that drinks packages had to be booked ... Read more

I'll start by saying that the itinerary was great and was why I booked this cruise. We booked an MSC excursion from Bari to see the trullo houses in Alberobello and that was very enjoyable. I booked another company to take us to Olympia ... Read more

First the good news; the ship was lovely, beautiful - it was literally gleaming, and kept sparkling clean throughout our holiday (they even washed the balcony twice in a week!). The food also was excellent, cooked and served to a very high ... Read more

I disagree with the previous "terrible" review, because it was simply "Horrible"!!! I regretted so much going on this cruise holiday and vow to never EVER return to MSC. Not to mention the bad, mundane food quality, the seemingly ... Read more

We decided to take our family of 18 to a cruse, chose MSc only for the fact that it is the only line, that will accept babies from 3 month, our granddaughter is 4 months. It is the most disorganised, unfriendly, chaotic, unruly, guests ... Read more

Reviews seem all over the place on this one so I will do my best to alleviate some concern. You are on a ship with European passengers not American ones. You will hear Italian, German, French, and finally English. We met very few Americans ... Read more

As we embarked from Piraeus and we were only about 50 persons, the embarkation procedures were straight forward and quick. Our cabin was on the 11th level with a good sized balcony. Its size was ok and we unpacked all our clothes and ... Read more

Although I had read some very bad reviews we decided to give MSC a chance. What a mistake! If you do not speak the language you are in for a hard time. Culture clash of note! Have to say the embarkation and disembarkation were fantastic ... Read more
