This was our second cruise with msc. Once again I cannot fault them. Everything was amazing from the food to the price of the cruise. The staff are so friendly and so helpful. A very special praise to Noman from the bar service. He just went above and beyond for us. We ate in the sliver dolphin our waiters Mark and Gerldine were lovely. Full of knowledge from wine to the food. The food was ...

I chose this cruise because of the relatively low single supplement, its date of sailing and, in particular, the interesting cities it was visiting. I was disappointed with the way MSC cancelled the two excursions I had booked to see two of the cities. There is plenty to praise about the ship. I particularly appreciated the space in the public areas despite the large number of guests on ...

Family with 2 kids (10+12), Fantastica cabin category. The ship had only 50% utilization, but the buffet-restaurants were absolut full! Too many people, bad service, food was below average. Dinner was nice, food was ok, on the service-managment they could also work more! We expected much more than this for the price… Embarkation was well done organized: from arriving to arriving ...

Already at home after 2 years of cancellations and changes of ships and itineraries, finally I was able to cruise the western Mediterranean again, this time on the MSC Seaview, and finally enjoy a few days in Barcelona. It was not the ship initially planned, but I had a very good impression of the Seaview, better than I expected. It is a big ship, but full of nooks and crannies, so everyone can ...

My husband and I had a good time on the cruise. We went to 4 theater shows, all very good. The performers were all quite professional. We also went dancing, learnt a bit of waltz and rumba, it was fun. The only problem was the dance classes did not follow the printed schedule, so we had to wait for over 30 minutes for one of the classes. We ate at the main dining room, food was ok. Staff were all ...

Well after 73 cruises I can finally say never again on MSC. My pros were : Embarkation in Barcelona and disembarkation in Barcelona Our wait staff in main dining room (I use the term dining room loosely) Our cabin steward was good. Ship was beautiful. Our cabin was ok too, although closet placement was a poor design. Cons: Generally unfriendly staff on board (language ...

The ship is beautiful but foods, both in restaurant and buffet, are terrible. Food in restaurant is far from enough and I had to eat again in buffet. Food quality, both in restaurant and buffet are far from tasty. We were originally arranged sitting in Silver Dolphin restaurant same table with strangers while many tables are still not occupied. Excursions are professional organized. We were ...

Beautiful Ship Let Down By Service

The ship is a wonderful modern ship with fantastic features, but the staff let it down with their priorities being maintaining the areas where they work forgetting the customers. The food quality is not what I expect from a ship of this size and quality/cost of cruise. The speciality restaurants are extremely expensive. We have been cruising for over 16 years with various cruise lines (some budget ...

This was my 10th MSC Cruise and our second time on MSC Seaview. We decided to upgrade to Yacht Club again as this provides many benefits that we enjoy. We are big fans of MSC and l would like to provide a balanced review. With Yacht Club you get priority boarding, so this was a very smooth and quick process. Our balcony room was great and well maintained by Richard and Michelle. We dined at ...
