I did this cruise for one main reason - I got it really cheap. I had an inside cabin on Deck 12 which I was surprised to find was larger than I expected. Overall the room was excellent and the bed was extremely comfortable (pillows are ... Read more

This was one of the best weeks of my life and I didn't want to get off the Preziosa. MSC are one of the best value cruise lines for solo travellers which is why I initially chose this cruise. The staff were outstanding, friendly and ... Read more

I was on a 17 day transatlantic and as an avid cruiser, this was by far, the worst experience of my life...the first and last on MSC. MSC, take a page from your top two competitors...you have a long way to go. The Pros: gorgeous ship, ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise on MSC, the 1st being last Christmas on Armonia, and as my title says, it's getting better and better. The ship is very luxurious and more comfortable than what is usual on cruise ships. My cabin was roomy and ... Read more

This cruise is actually quite good, it exceeds my expectation in most aspects. For example the food is well-cooked in Italian style, not American style junk food that appeals more to some taste. The lunch buffet is one of the largest. Some ... Read more

I booked this cruise SPECIFICALLY to visit Bermuda. As we sailed from New York we were given the bad news that we would not be going to Bermuda because of bad weather. However, one person whilst booking the cruise with an agent, was told ... Read more

first review, so here goes:  the ship is great. I used to work as a musician on cruises circa 2007-2008, and it kicked butt compared to NCL and Princess, but then again who knows what their new ships look like. The theatre is nice, ... Read more

I flew from Heathrow to Nice arriving at 10.00am, it took the courier over 3 hrs to get a coach sorted out, this meant that we did not get on the ship until 4.00pm. The Splendida is spectacular with all the glitz of 'Vegas' My cabin was ... Read more

Things couldn't have started much worse - booked through Gill's travel online; a fortnight later they went bust ! Assumed I'd lose my deposit, but MSC got in touch & said they'd honour the booking. Think when they saw just how cheaply ... Read more

I always like to book a cruise to warmer climates in January or February every year just to get away from the cold rainy weather at home. I suspect that the majority of passengers on this cruise had the same thought in mind. I would be ... Read more

The MSC Musica is truly a beautiful ship. With that said, I go on cruises almost every month and was quite disappointed with this experience. Embarkation was actually the best that I have ever encountered. We dropped off our bags and ... Read more
