I would like to make a complaint of my last cruise with MSC. In October 2013, I made a cruise in the Mediterranean in the ship Lirica. I reserved a balcony and this trip was great. I had a beautiful view from my balcony. I was so ... Read more

Two facts about MSC cruises become apparent within a few hours of boarding the ship - in our case the Splendida to the Norwegian fjords. One: it is all about making money and two: the cruise is not meant for non- Europeans. Of the almost ... Read more

Embarkation at HAM which was panic, heat and confusion. Being offered to pose for a souvenir photo at the end of the ordeal was not a good idea. The cabin was great. The way the ship was driven was great. Heads off to the nautical ... Read more

Msc was a big disappointment. The fact that they do not have ice tea or lemonade for you to drink is ridiculous. They do not cater to American cruisers.Americans like to have coffee with dinner at a formal dinning room, it was not ... Read more

Right up front let us say our overall rating is skewed by MSC's abysmal customer service pre cruise. To our queries both directly and via travel agent, their responses were late, minimal, nonexistent and just plain wrong. We booked ... Read more

We usually cruise the Caribbeans but wanted to show our daughters a bit of Europe for a change. Although the food reviews had us worried we figured it couldn't be too hard to find something eat. Wrong! I can only say that most of the ... Read more

The service is incredibly good....you are really pampered by the team of concierge and butlers, and other service personnel if you are in Yacht Club. This is the second time I was in Yacht Club accommodation....this time it even surpasses ... Read more

I'd hate to see Americans skip this cruise ship and itinerary based on the mixed reviews so here is mine. Our main goal was to have our two teens exposed to new people, food, cultures and customs and to stay interested in their French and ... Read more

Hello my fellow American cruisers. Stay far - far away from this cruise ship. We just returned yesterday from a 7 night Mediterranean Cruise on the MSC Spendida. The cruise was over booked with over 4,000 passengers. It was so crowded ... Read more

Our first European visit and our second MSC cruise. An absolutely wonderful experience bordering on decadence treatment. The entire process from embarkation to disembarkation was handled superbly. This despite the tragic events the week ... Read more

We booked this because this was a good value cruise and we had limited choice of dates to go away for but we won't travel with an Italian cruise line again, the standards of professionalism aren't the same as other lines we've been on. ... Read more
