The food was great! 7/10; The entertainment was okay 4/10; the pool was bursting at the seams with people bumping knees in every direction 1/10; My cabins soap dispenser was broke, it didn’t hold AC very well, the fridge was locked the entire time, and the only English speaking channel was British. 2/10; If you are American born this cruise may not be for you! This cruise was not meant for ...

Overall we had a nice experience. Zero customer service complaints. We visited the gym often and it was never busy except for the sea day, which is a given. There were always activities available so if you wanted to get involved you could. The shows were fine and were around 35 minutes which is perfect. We did not take part in the show you had to pay for. The food at the buffet did get redundant, ...

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 Grandiosa indeed!

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 ...

MSC cruise: a very disappointing experience

After 4 pleasant high-quality cruises with other companies our first cruise with MSC was very disappointing. Next to a few positive perceptions our overall experience was dominated by numerous incidents, poor service and quality of food, sheer incompetence and being tricked on various occasions. A short resume: - The big buffet restaurant was over-crowded all day long. Each day, going for ...

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). ...

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 ...
