Embarkation went smoothly and we were soon on board, it was as a first come basis and you did not need to stick to the time stated on your tickets. Luggage soon at the cabin which surpassed all expectations. We never attended any of the ... 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

We have done over 20 cruises and loved this one.. I'm retired mid 60's and my wife is mid 50's and we traveled alone. Booking Divinia was done easily with a call to MSC. On our sailing on Sept 10, there were not many kids which for us ... Read more

WE booked this cruise as a package. After booking I read some negative reviews and was feeling apprehensive. I would say to people do not let the negative reviews put you off sailing with MSC. Not up there with the greats but great ... 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

My wife and I chose this cruise as a last minute get away. We have been on about 40 cruises, but never on a mega-ship, so we were a bit anxious, but ready to give it a try. The ship is pretty and clean. Check in was efficient, once you ... Read more

This was our second cruise and we chose MSC Magnifica for the European flavour on board and also the itinerary. We had read several reviews beforehand which were a mixed bag. For us Magnifica lived up to it's name in every aspect. The ... Read more

I chose this cruise and line because I had often heard about the beautiful Norwegian fjords, and I wanted to sail with an international cruise line (i.e., not one that caters mostly to Germans). Our port of embarkation was Kiel, Germany ... Read more

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

This was our first cruise on MSC. My wife has cruised a number of times with Carnival. And, I worked for four years as a Cruise Staff on two other cruise lines. So, I have cruised the equivalent of 150 - 200 cruises. But, this was my first ... 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

This cruise was our first for our 25th wedding anniversary and I must say we thoroughly enjoyed it. In general I felt it was like a 5 star hotel as the cabin was fantastic and the cabin steward done such a fantastic job of looking after ... Read more
