My wife and I have sailed several different Caribbean itineraries over the years. We decided to give MSC a try primarily because of the low initial price, but we were also intrigued by the loyalty tier matching program they offer. Over ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was very reasonable and the ports were appealing . Firstly the flight into Genoa was horrific the turbulence and the terrible landing dare I say by a woman pilot was the worst ever and we are seasoned ... Read more

Rude Italian staff. No chance of getting a chair by the pool on deck 14 or 15 during the day. Too many passengers for the size of the pools and hot tubs. Enough room for 2500 max, not 4500. No chance of ever getting a buffet table at ... Read more

At around 2:30 we made it to our room and relaxed as we waited for our bags to arrive. The first bag came around 4:15. The second bag around 5:00 and the third around 5:30. At around 7:00 we wondered what the hold up was for our final bag ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were certainly not disappointed. The ship was fantastic and all the staff were always smiling. Food was very good, all though I was surprised that they could not make a real caparchio. We had a balcony ... Read more

We've just returned from our 3rd and, to our surprise, best MSC cruise. We sailed Sinfonia out of Venice to Split, Santorini, Mykonos, Dubrovnik and Ancona. The ship is smallest of our 3 cruises, easy to walk around but with some dead ends ... 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

For context - I went on this cruise with my fiance (we are young professionals, in mid-20's, from America). We are both very low maintenance and easy to please. My fiance has been on 12-15 cruises in his lifetime, and we have been on 5 ... Read more

I initially chose this cruise because of the price. I wasn't familiar with MSC, and couldn't believe the price was for a 7 day cruise with a balcony cabin. Did some research and even though the reviews by some cruisers were a mixed bag, ... Read more

Their service was phenomenal. People went out of the way to make sure we got what we needed when we wanted it. I liked that they had a Cruise Critic meet up automatically scheduled and listened to everyone's individual comments. As soon as ... Read more
