For me as a European citizen (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) I really enjoyed my cruise on the Magnifica ! This was my 2nd one with her…… Ok.., most of the ports where not super…, but I don’t mind that. I dont like to do excursions, i like to walk around by my self or with friends and look at other ships. The weather was more then good.., only sun and no wind. The service on board was good ...

I had read some of the reviews before we left, and I was somewhat nervous. There was no reason to be. This was one of our favorite cruises. I want to tell you a bit about us before I review our trip. My husband and I are from SC, in our early sixties, and retired. We choose our cruises based on price and itinerary. We like to be comfortable, but usually choose an inside room and seldom go to ...

The main reason to chose this cruise was the ports of call. And they were the best part of the cruise. Beautiful Bruges, charming Honfleur, impressive Amsterdam, unique island of Guernsey made this tour unforgettable. However avoid on board excursions since they are highly overpriced. For instance: the night before we reach Bruges we have been informed that ship "kindly" provide us with the ...

There seems to be little information on MSC cruises so I am sharing out balcony experience on Magnifica. We agreed with most posts saying food tedious, not tasty...repetitive. The lunch salad bar was okay and fruit fresh enough. Veeeery limited free drinks. Formal dining did not seem to help food and orders often wrong and service hurried at second seating. We quickly (three nights) choose to go ...

Nine night cruise Amsterdam to Amsterdam. Six ports. One cancelled after we booked without notifying us. (About two months prior to sail). The Magnifica is a four or five year old ship. Linens mended and old and bedspread removed, didn't look clean. Mattress VERY uncomfortable, we flipped it. Pillows Extremely Uncomfortable. Like a bag of rolled up socks. My suggestion: bring a pillow. Food: ...

I will start by saying that I went on this cruise with my mother, and I chose this sailing because of the itinerary and the price, both of which were very good. I had travelled with MSC a few years ago, and although there were things we did not like about it (no coffee or tea served at dinner in the main restaurant, having to pay for a glass of water, feeling like a fifth class citizen as English ...

This was our 2nd cruise on MSC. Our first cruise was fine so we were happy to go again for MSC cruise but it wasn't what we expected.MSC Magnifica is beautiful ship and in great condition. They keep ship very clean. Our balcony cabin was also in perfect condition and cabin personnel did a good job during the cruise.Entertainment and activies were quite poor. There were few quiz per day, couple ...
