Very Disappointing
"Food was just very average in the Yacht Club restaurant, but serving staff were good.There is also an issue with the lack of attention that is no longer present in the Yacht Club, by the concierge desk, who seemed to be frustrated with their job...."Read More

We have completed only 2 previous cruises, this was appalling for a number of reasons .... Food Food in the restaurant was never hot, always tepid. And the portion sizes were shocking small. The food in the Marketplace Buffet was tasteless and once again never hot, just tepid Overall the food was really really poor Dinner in the main dining room caused its own issues with MSC insisting ...

Food poisoning on the very first night. AVOID the Hola Tacos! Cabin walls & ceiling are thin. People stomping in the halls. Kids running & jumping in cabins. Could hear people in the cabins talking. Room steward was a joke. Didnt get clean towels most days. Room had not been vacuumed upon our arrival. It was 3 days later it was finally done but only the 1 time for the whole 7 days. He didnt ...

The Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona would have been much better if it had simply been advertised as a ferry service on ship that looked like a cruise ship. It was exactly what you might expect from a ferry boat, noisy, somewhat dirty, disorganized, and staff that certainly acted as if they just couldn’t wait for the whole awful event to be over. And, the constant noise of overhead speakers ...

If you want to be treated like an ape, this may be the place for you. Unfortunately, it ranks as one of the worst experiences I've had in a while. The food buffet scored a dismal 2 out of 10; the taste was poor, cleanliness was lacking, and there weren't enough staff to maintain cleanliness and food supply. Seating was always full, leaving no place to sit. The onboard restaurants were okay, ...

This ship is large, modern, well-decorated and appointed, with some unique features. The most prominent is a social area along an avenue of elegant shops and restaurants on deck 6 with a long, curved ceiling illuminated by changing colored displays. Our cabin was not large but very functional and comfortable. Food, especially the buffet, was much better than expected for a ship holding 5,000 ...

A disappointing cruise experience

The ship is beautiful and the housekeeping and excursions are great. Other than that... not so much. The badly misnamed "Fantastica" plan we bought wasn't fantastic. Water and watery fruit drinks were the only options, and those were available only for breakfast. The buffet is very crowded and, while there was a good variety, many of the dishes offered were disappointing (some were downright bad). ...

Worst Cruise Experience

I would like to give ZERO star, but I can't. MSC is a low, low, low quality cruise. If you like good food, avoid it. The meals offered are POOR and quality not so good. Staff if not well trained (specially customer service). The "juices" offered during breakfast time aren't juice: it is like a water with something with a horrible taste. This is my 7th cruise and the worst that I ever been. Even ...

Sailed from Barcelona, fixed rate taxi fare of 39 euros from El Pratt for the four of us and cases (same for return trip). Approximately 5 minute wait for check in which went smoothly then it was onto the ship. As one of my sons has a Gluten intolerance our first mission was to check the assigned restaurant (19:00 sitting deck 6) had the info we sent through. We were told that our breakfasts ...
