Excellent & Faultless!! We booked this cruise with a group of friends [agegroup 25 - 70 English] because it included the drinks package. One couple had only cruised with NCL and we wanted them to experience different standards. ... Read more

I love this ship and i love MSC, I think people lose sight of the value for money you get with an MSC cruise. We have just done a one week northern europe cruise for £450 each including the Allegrisimo drinks package. The ship ... Read more

MSC Splendida was a beautiful ship. It had the largest and nicest stateroom we have ever stayed in, and this was, I think, my sixteenth cruise. The biggest problem was with excursions. We arrived on ship and attempted to book excursions ... Read more

We did this cruise mainly for the price and the convenience of departing from Zeebrugge. We cruised with our son (aged 2,5) and this was his second cruise. Let me start by saying that we had a very good week and really enjoyed ... Read more

Chose this cruise based on value for money, we are experienced cruisers and have been with several other cruise lines. This ship is beautiful but the food quality and service lets it down. Embarkation was not bad really, and our cabin was ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its extensive itnerary (and affordable cost). Out of 11 days we had only one day at sea. From Australia we flew into Berlin to experience this fascinating city for a few days and then we took the train from there ... Read more

Great shows...I am starting off positive but there were some things that were not so good. The buffet has too many tables and people cannot walk through the room; this is probably because the ship has too many cabins! Breakfast and ... Read more

After search for a cruise around the Baltic, we found this one and choose it for the best itinerary (it visited more ports than cruises offered by other cruise lines) and for the incredible price (less than 1000 euros per passenger). I ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the itinerary and the sailing date, although we had a bad experience with MSC before. We did not book any transport or excursions with MSC but made our own arrangements. Embarkation was the usual tedious business, ... Read more

This was our first cruise and picked the ship for its Ports and Price (Having two kids 11 and 6 is was way cheaper than other cruise lines.) We had a brilliant holiday and we would not hesitate to use MSC again. Embarkations and ... Read more

We choose this cruise, because it was advertised on a deal site. The destinations looked great and it was close to home. We could board in Copenhagen and we live 10 km from there. Very nice. As we know Copenhagen, being natives, we did ... Read more

MSC Musica departs from the Port of Kiel during the summer of 2016. Our cruise was one that took us on the Baltic Sea to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallinn and St Petersburg. Embarkation was a smooth process - MSC offers a free transfer ... Read more

this was our second choice as our original was cancelled. Living on the continent it was easy to travel by train to Keil in north Germany to start the cruise. This was our fourth cruise with MSC and we were satisfied, as always by the ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with MSC so we knew what to expect. Having been on the newer, larger ships I have to say we were somewhat disappointed with the Sinfonia despite the extension and revitalisation. On the plus side it was small ... Read more
