We have cruised on about 30 occasions, however this was our first time with MSC. I spotted this 3 night trip from Southampton to Hamburg on the MSC Preziosa and thought it would be the ideal time to take a look and see what MSC had to ... Read more

It was our first time on an MSC cruise. We loved the cruise and the people that we met. I wouldn't recommend this cruise line for first timers. We will definitely do MSC again! Pros: - Beautiful and elegant ship - Most of the ... Read more

This is the fourth cruise line I've tried and unfortunately falls at the bottom of my list of all 9 cruises I've taken. We chose this cruise because of the value. The Aurea package for a balcony room for three people was far less ... Read more

We booked this mini cruise as an alternative to a break in Barcelona over Easter. AT the time of booking we had to fly from Dublin (Aer Lingus) as flights from Northern Ireland were not available on the websites and as there were 6 adults ... Read more

Ship - Gorgeous, interior cabins are spacious, but the bed and the pillows are very uncomfortable. Pools - a lot of them, but no music during the day or ever, like other cruise line do, it was sad at times and depressing. Pool desk was ... Read more

Having sailed 9 times on 4 other cruise lines, I had high expectations of my experience on what was billed as a premiere ship. It is a gorgeous vessel...the theater shows are outstanding and the entertainment team was top-notch. However ... Read more

I wanted to experience the mediterranean without having to move from hotel to hotel so I thought a cruise would be a great alternative when travelling alone. I was apprehensive to say the least after reading what other people had written ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we booked rather last minute and our options were limited. As a family of 6, finding a cruise without spending a fortune was challenging. The price and "kids sail free" grabbed me. We've taken a ... Read more

My husband and I have cruised four times with MSC: twice each on MSC Poesia and MSC DIvina. This review comes from the perspective of being a non-drinker, non-smoker, and non-gambler. We are senior citizens who simply love being on the ... Read more

I had such a good week! It was a familial trip (I'm the teen). It was my first cruise and it was really cool. My dining room was the Villa Rossa and food was very good! We had the 6PM table because we thought we would be very hungry by ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because of the cruise destinations namely Cuba, Mexico and Caribbean. I'm so pleased we took very little notice of some of the negative reviews we read before we booked. Our experience couldn't have been ... Read more

I embarked the MSC Splendida in Marseille on Jan 28, which was also the Chinese New Year’s day and so there was a sizeable contingency of Chinese passengers. It was actually the last night of the itinerary when I embarked, as the ... Read more

The price was cheap but now I know why; 1) several times the water appeared brown from our tap water and our toilet. Called guest services and both times and they failed to get back to me until I wrote a letter to the Captain. Even the ... Read more

Friend chose it as it was a cheap offer but I would never go on Orchestra again. On embarkation we had to wait for 2 1/2 hours to board ship. When we got on board our room hadn't been cleaned, that was our first complaint of many. The ... Read more

We have been on 11 cruises prior to this one and the MSC Divina is BY FAR the most beautiful and well maintained ship on which we have sailed. The decorations are tasteful and not gaudy and there are so many public areas on the ship for ... Read more
