MSC - A huge disappointed - BEWARE!

We are highly disappointed and feel cheated out of our money. I feel like MSC should’ve canceled the cruise due to coronavirus outbreak as we didn’t visit any ports outside of UAE. I refuse to believe that MSC did not know this ahead of time. We stayed at sea most of time and basically cruised from Abu Dhabi to Dubai. We disembarked early in Dubai as we simply could not take being on the ship ...

* Avoid deck 14 rooms by any means, until they are at the very nose of the ship (see cabin review) * All the packages (drinks, Internet) are hugely overpriced and I see no reason you'd like to use them as no bartender could make proper cocktail there regardless of the price. The only drinkable mix is fruit smoothie so just stick to plain drinks, especially their a la carte price is quite ...

My first cruise. Ship new, but problems with touch screens in public areas. Some time you must 5 or more time touch before react. Service in rooms excellent. The buffet is very, very good and the food very tasty. The food in restaurants is good, but most are nothing special. The last days we eat only in the buffet. Entertainment very good. On the last day of the cruise we wanted to ...

CHRISTMAS CRUISE Abu Dhabi (22-12-2019 until 29-12-2019) Everything started with the wrong foot (Family travel - Party of 11 originally, but only 9 arrived because my mother had an emergency surgery and stayed with my father) So the first thing we did before embarkation, we presented all the medical certifications, and we didn´t get the refund of the stateroom, but thay didn´t also give us the ...

The main reason we chose to go on this particular cruise was to go somewhere we'd never been before on a new ship. This trip was booked in October 2018 with Tour America..At the time we were told that flights would be allocated at a later date. This later proved to be a huge mistake. We were only informed of our flight times four weeks prior to departure, The aforementioned travel agency then ...

I chose this cruise for the itinerary which included all the countries and ports I would like to visit. The night stop in the major ports enabled you to visit everything you needed in the time available. Better than expected For a ship with nearly 4000 passengers, there were few times int he 4 weeks when the public rooms were crowded, and with a slight adjustment in your plans you could ...

Travelled as a party of 7 to celebrate a birthday. The Yacht Club is promoted as being special, but the concierge desk really let it down. No assistance at any time, always told to go away and come back later (as excursion desk was not open, bar that had made a mistake on on bill wasn't open, surely their purpose is to sort things out and get back to you if there is any issue, not to make you ...

7 night ME cruise from Dubai with my wife over Xmas. The ship itself was fine, but the food in the buffet and main dining room was pretty poor. Low quality and variety. The fresh pizzas were good, as were the breads, pastries and barista made coffee. Plenty of bars, with the best range of wines being in Dim Sum. Ship was packed, but the bar and seating area at the back of deck 15 was good. Very ...
