We chose this cruise because it was close to my wife's birthday. On the Sunday prior to the cruise our President announced the strict measures for gatherings and movement of people - we thought our cruise was cancelled and tried to contact MSC for confirmation not possible. MSC eventually notified us that the cruise was going ahead. On arrival at the terminal at 10.30 a.m we found that disembarkation was still taking place and with the confusion could not find the allocated wheelchair assist station. I left my wife in the queue with the luggage and went to find a wheelchair. I went back to my wife and an MSC employee kindly took our luggage and indicated where we should go bearing in mind we had a wheel chair he led us to a queue where we ended up with a flight of stairs to navigate - very interesting - all told we were on board by 11.20 a.m. The cruise we thoroughly enjoyed apart from all shops being poorly supplied but one had to appreciate Covid 19 which we were advised were causing the problem. However we tried on no less than 5 separate occasions to purchase some gold chain and each time we were either too early - too late - I am closed (but the doors were open) we just gave up in the end we were also hard pushed to purchase gifts from the MSC logo shop. We were on second sitting but had no problem changing this to first and what a wonderful dining experience we had a great waiter Sanekia who really looked after us. We unfortunately had purchased the oriental restaurant package without realising, through lack of explanation, that this was a set menu consisting mainly of sushi which we both do not like so were very disappointed but made the best of a bad situation. The cabin was fabulous no complaints atall the room service at breakfast was very efficient and housekeeping excellent. But MSC need to update their brochures on room service and prices as it clearly states that only pizzas carried a charge but this is not so there is a charge for room service other than breakfast but you have to look at the television to see this - ours was not working for two days until I realised there was a plug not connected at the back to the tv. Then the disembarkation what a farce that became and seriously MSC you need to read up on Wheelchair Assist and what it entails when we arrived at the designated area there was one person allocated to all people needing wheelchair assistance to disembark but he disappeared before assisting anyone and after the first hour never to be seen again. I managed to secure a wheelchair for my wife and proceeded to disembark only to arrive at the checkout with stairs and did a magical mystery trip of the Orchestra with a great MSC employee who managed to get us through the crowds to the goods entrance where there was a ramp all in all very exciting!! On a brighter note congratulations are in order to MSC staff and crew to getting clearance for us to disembark on the 20 March 2020 under extremely difficult times. Read Less

We choose different destination from previous years, te cruise was lovely despite the harvoc we are going through in the world one thing that was so so horrible is that I booked 2 cabins and to be placed at 14007 another ar 12019 when later the next day after having requested that we are placed in the same floor then the is a cabin available when we have already unpacked-now that was not nice at all at all..food was lovely, but this time is was not so clean, the lifts were forever dirty,finger prints on mirrors on the rails etc....rooms were made but not as neat as with Musica - staff not so friendly especially on the last days you could swear that they were frustrated, didnt portray full willingness except for the ones that working at the dining rooms - it felt as if the customer care downgraded a bit - please, at reception woow you just do not find any friendliness just people with a straight face no friendliness at all - please do encourage your staff as much as possible because we takr these trips for relaxing, to be away from all the stress-either than that all went well.thank you Read Less

We joined the cruise with friends. Just a weekend away ... and wanted to relax and have some fun. Everything is extremely overpriced. As we were paying in the region of R2000 pppn... we do expect quality. We paid for ALL our photos and got home to find most missing .. we were shocked. They were already horrendously overpriced.. then missing loads. The staff were obviously overworked as they were pretty miserable towards us and I commented more than once that waiters and reception staff were rude. Our dining waiter was friendly.. but the wait for drinks etc was very long. I feel I was made to feel unwelcome. My daughter went to be entertained and was forced to watch a movie .. very boring. She complained that the lady working there was impatient. Are the crew overworked maybe? Played in casino and just lost ... no entertainment in just losing all the time. Drinks were not cold on the island.. warm and unpleasant and Qs always long We paid for a KYKNET cruise and saw 3 singers the whole time ... hardly the faces on the advertisement. It was dismal. The 3 tried their best, but quite honestly that was not what we were expecting from KYKNET cruise .. it was a poor show. Where were the rest of Kyknet??? We are going again in December as we've booked already. I took 4 years between this one in March and the last time in 2015. Things deteriorated and I remembered why I originally said I wouldn't cruise again. I hope in December we have a better experience. Please could we be treated as though we there for a holiday and not just there to make MSC and the staff more money. It is theoretically not a cheap holiday!! We go to have a holiday ... not to line your pockets ... please work on making cruisers feel welcome... I totally felt the irritation from 80% of the crew. Read Less
