Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Cruise

Review for MSC Seaview to Caribbean - All

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise. We had been interested in cruising for some time and when we received a storming deal via a travel agent we had used previously, we decided to just go for it. We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, even though there were some things that could have been better. Positives included a new, modern ship, and you could tell. Particularly when comparing to others parked up in ...

We were offered this as a special deal and thought we would try MSC. This was our 14th cruise, so I'd like to think we have at least an average benchmark across 5 other cruise lines to compare to. The ship was kept clean and there were only 950 people on a 4,500 capacity ship, so it often felt completely empty. The cabins were OK, the beds were not especially comfortable, but the worst ...

We booked this cruise ‘The best of the Caribbean’ in 2020. A 14 night cruise on MSC Seaview with a different island to visit each day including return visits to Martinique and Guadeloupe. Twelve different islands, six of which we had not visited before. We paid the balance in November 2021 but then 4 days later received an email saying that two of the islands to be visited had not met the ...

Neil in ‘Cruise Club’ recommended this Caribbean cruise on theMRC Seaview ship. My wife and I were not disappointed in anyway as this was our first experience. MRC Seaview was amazing, very clean, and staff were friendly and courteous. It was lovely to be docking in different eastern Caribbean isLands each morning except for two and enjoy the beautiful beaches. On the sea days we sat ...

This was a last minute bargain - 5 days to get ready - but it was just fantastic. Despite the frustration of all the tests and forms to be completed we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Caribbean. We were offered a really cut price rate complete with Premium drinks package, and couldn't believe our luck when it all worked out perfectly. The islands were beginning to open up and despite ship's ...

We have cruised the Caribbean several times in the last 10 or so years mainly with P and O, but also with NCL and Thomsons. We were attracted to this cruise as it offered a slightly different itinerary which included Martinique, Guadeloupe and Trinidad. The overall package which include drinks, tips and Virgin flights seemed attractive. This is what we found: Virgin - twilight check-in at ...

I'm not sure what planet these people are who have bitterly complained about a truly magnificent ship. Staff were second to none, polite, courteous and friendly. Our cabin kept very clean, towels flannels, changed twice every day, bedding daily, the ship was spotless, never ever found any of the general toilets around the ship dirty. All areas of the ship were kept exceptionally clean. Bar staff ...

We boarded in Barbados having flown from the UK, embarkation was late due to delays with luggage at the airport and there was no welcome when we got on the ship We were on board for 14 nights and found that there was a lot more attention given to other groups when they arrived, the focus seemed to be on French guests Our cabin, a balcony on deck 13 with the Aurea experience was good, ...

We chose this ship because of its value for money and booked eleven months ago travelling with two others who have cruised several times this was our first so had nothing to compare it to. We can honestly say we would never choose MSC again. Reception staff were rude and totally unhelpful and the ship catered mainly for the French! We purchased a premium drinks package which was for any ...
