I have been on many cruises and found MSC Poesia a great cruise. I read all the bad reviews and book anyway because they were going to the destinations I wanted to visit. I'm glad I booked, I was happily surprised at how clean the ship ... Read more

Hubby and I booked Divina as first-timers, and we almost didn't. What a MISTAKE it would have been to miss out on this. First, it is important to read the literature and know your options. The buffet around the pool serves a lot of ... Read more

Just got back from the cruise. t i wouldn't recommend anyone to this cruise line. The service was horrible and you couldn't find an employee with a smile. They seemed way understaffed for the amount of people they had on the ship. In ... Read more

We only choose to travel with MSC and this is the first time that we would rate it lower than "very good or excellent". The entertainment quality was nowhere near as good as usual this included the nightly show and also at the ... Read more

The only thing that was satisfying on this ship was the overall appearance of the boat. Service was terrible. Ports were so far from shore. Food was not the greatest. Activities-not too many on board. Me and my Fiance took this cruise ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the places we visited, i.e. Croatia and Santorini. The ship was very nice but there were far too many children running riot everywhere. Very few people dressed up on the two gala nights. We could not get a ... Read more

Great cruise, good staff and service. Booked for my honeymoon and enjoyed the cruise's schedule. To our surprise we got an upgrade to a room with balcony and it was very spacious and comfortable. Loved the Gaudi style pools and the varied ... Read more

I had a lovely cruise! I've cruised many times on several lines, I found MSC to be as expected with 4,000 plus guest to cater to. Starting with embarkation, the lines albeit a little long, (remember 4000 guest) moved fairly quickly, ... Read more

YC1 suite 15032 on MSC Preziosa. This suite is the last on the starboard side on deck 15, nearest the lifts (although no noise issues at all) and immediately to the right on entering the Yacht Club. You can only access the Yacht Club on ... Read more

Just got back from sailing on the MSC Divina out of Miami with friends. Strange that the reviews we read before sailing were quite different than our experience. All the staff, from our room maid, bartenders, waitstaff and wait ... Read more

Imagine nights on board with demolition drilling, metal hammers on metal surfaces, metal pipe cutting and jagged grinding sounds from various heavy duty demolition and construction tools from the decks below sea. Being metal a liner like ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we were unsure if we would like cruising at all. It was an excellent price. Embarkation couldn't have been easier- even with a wheelchair. Luggage was waiting at our cabin when we arrived. I can't think of any ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a way to experience an inside cabin - we had always had a balcony before, but seeing all of the great offers available for insides we thought a two night break would be the ideal way to give it a go, and if we ... Read more

Long awaited couples holiday. Issues unfortunately started even before we got on the ship. Total disorganisation at the luggage drop off at the port, no direction from the MSC staff. The MSC cruise registration person that we met took our ... Read more

Let me begin by stating this was my very FIRST cruise and my view was somewhat tainted by my wife's experience spanning over 35 cruises. Our check-in experience was more painful than having a tooth extracted without Novocain. The security ... Read more

This was our 30th cruise and 3rd on MSC. We like MSC, but it is definitely a little behind some of its competition. You really need to know what you are getting into the ships are not like travelling on American, British or Scandinavian ... Read more
