Nice cruise with poor food
"The entertainment from the singers and dancers were some of the best we have seen and unbelievably, they did three complete shows in four nights.There were plenty of lounges with live entertainment...."Read More

Left Miami on Friday and back on Monday. Stopped in Key West and Nassau. Embarkation was fast and smooth. We did not bring much luggage so we carried on our bags. On the ship 10 minutes after arriving for our 11:30am checkin. First impressions were how clean and well maintained the ship was and staff were there to answer any questions. Dropped bags in state room which was being cleaned and this ...

I have done several cruises on very large and luxurious ships, as well as on small and very simple ships. I took the risk of doing the cruise with MSC on the weekend of April 12 to April 15, 2024 and I was a little skeptical that I would have a good time;...but what a great surprise I found, it has been one of my best experiences traveling on a cruise. The service and attention was excellent, much ...

Ok, first time giving a review but wanted people to know not to believe all the bad reviews for MSC.We have cruised more than 35 times on almost every cruise line. We decided to try our luck with MSC because of the price expecting the worst. What a surprise - turned out to be one of our best cruises! Embarking & disembark-super fast and easy- staff were great food was pretty darn good- dining ...

The Magnifica crew provided Excellent service! I Chose to carry own luggage off ship however Debarking was very organized and quickly got off the ship in less than 15 minutes. The Food was good but Europeanish so I was able to expand my palate a bit. Locs, grilled cheese and pepperoni. The freshly made pizza is delicious with many varieties and is hot and waiting which is so satisfying at ...

Our room concierge was great and very kind. About the only thing on the cruise though. Food, I travelled with someone who was gluten intolerant. Mashed potatoes are one of the items she can eat. However those are not on the buffet for everyone as we were very rudely told she could not get those because it was on the kid buffet. I even explained it was for gluten issue and was still rudely told no. ...

This was my first solo cruise and my first MSC cruise and I had a wonderful, relaxing 5 days! I chose this ship because it fit in my schedule of only being able to sail Monday thru Friday, and because I found a fantastic price. I booked the Bella package and included drinks, internet and some onboard credit. It was well worth the price! I was assigned an inside cabin on deck 12 forward. A nice ...

Just got off the beautiful MSC Magnifica! I will admit I was skeptical to sail with MSC based on the reviews I had read from others… but I was very pleased to say the least. Embarkation Process- 10/10 First Initial Impression- 10/10 Food- 8/10 Cleanliness- 10/10 Cabin (Junior Balc)- 8/10 Staff to Guest Ratio: 10/10 Customer Service: 10/10 Entertainment: ...

My first time with MSC cruiseline. I went with my husband and 2 kids. I have to say it was very fantastic. I stayed in balcony suite and enjoyed Aurea experience with access to spa and my choice dining experience at Quatro restaurant was the best. I have to shout out to Neelish(waiter) and his assistant waiter Anam @Quatro restaurant. They were always serving us with the smile and their kindness ...

Ship is older and fewer amenities but in good shape. Smoking infiltrated all of us anytime we were near a smoking area or the casino. Why is any cruise line catering to the .5% of people who smoke to the detriment of the other 99.5%? The buffet food was horrible. Industrialize food, no variety, missing basic stuff e.g. croutons on salad bar). Dinner in the MDR was much better. ...

MSC Magnifica is just magnificent . They made our spring break super fun and memorable. Food, hospitality, entertainment, events everything was spot on . Their entertainment manager Graham had another level of energy to keep the entire group engaged. Variety of food was great. Shopping experience on the ship was also great. Pools were nice and clean. Gym was nice and especially protein shakes ...
