Ship Facts: MSC Magnifica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Magnifica Deck Plans
Excellent Value
I read several of these reviews after I'd booked the holiday and was prepared for the worst cruise possible in an iceberg-free zone. I am glad to say that everyone to whom I spoke (except for some Americans)was very pleased with the package and found it very good value-this was the cheapest cruise I've ever taken. The ship is beautifully appointed with all the facilities my wife and I would wish. The "Tiger Bar"-decorated in artificial tiger skin- may not be to everyone's taste (I wondered how many innocent prostitutes had been slaughtered to provide the furnishings)but, like every other bar, was in immaculate condition and served by waiters who were all extremely helpful. Our room was kept in pristine condition by an unobtrusive but hard-working steward. For those who fear the cultural queuing aversion shared by various damned foreigners I would recommend the dining rooms where the waiter service is attentive and the atmosphere relaxed. The food was generally very good and never less than perfectly acceptable. It is true that, amongst many other options, pasta dishes appeared frequently (not unexpectedly on an Italian boat)but these were all good and for those Americans who longed for their own preferred cuisine, hamburgers were available at every meal except breakfast- when such children's desserts as pancakes and waffles with cream and syrup were, bizarrely, an option. Embarkation was as pain-free as any other cruise.
