We were greeted by exceptionally long queues and frustrated people. We paid for "Fast track" as it is impossible to stand in a queue with a 3 year old child for 4 hours. Once inside the Fast track option was available but this ... Read more

The ship itself was gorgeous & kept beautifully. However the variations in levels of service we experienced were just too great for the money paid. We were unfortunate that on our cruise was a group of almost 1000 French accordion ... Read more

The biggest reasons for taking a cruise are, for me, the food, the service and the entertainment (of all kinds) on board. Lets start with the food. It was terrible. Even after just 5 nights they started repeating earlier menus in the ... Read more

every cruise line has a care of duty to their staff and their guests, they must never put you in danger, they must be helpful, have patience, be understanding, use common sense, have the time to talk to the guests, have the decency to say ... Read more

Our first impression of this huge ship was favourable. We booked late September to avoid children as we are a mature couple and didn't want the hassle. There were however a number of children of school age who you would have thought should ... Read more

This was our 5th Cruise for to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. All previous cruises have all been Royal Caribbean. Embarkation was smooth and fast (we did arrive very early to port). However, before passing security we were approached ... Read more

The MSC Divina was a beautiful ship and the staff could not have been more gracious. We were in Yacht Club 15028, with a wonderful balcony. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. We were offered a variety of ... Read more

The staff was courteous and could not do enough for you. The dining was great, however I was surprised that lobster was charged for on the European sailing since it was not charged for on the Caribbean sailing. The state room was perfect ... Read more

We are just back from our first cruise, 7 days in the Baltic, on the MSC Sinfonia. Read some pretty bad reviews from other people so was a little anxious before we left, but it was really good. We had a very good holiday, and really ... Read more
