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

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

This is our 2nd time on Divina, we booked a 2 for 1 balcony and were upgraded to the yacht club about a month before sailing. The yacht club was quite and experience, there is not hustle and bustle, you are very relaxed with plenty of ... 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

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

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

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
