We were a party of four and we left Barcelona on the 25th Oct & just got back home on the 1st of November. It was our first Cruise and it was fabulous. Our only hiccup was that unfortunately my cabin mate had a bereavement in her family and had to disembark on Monday. There was NO specific person to deal with us in this situation, to help with disembarking, find flights home etc. we had to deal with staff at reception and they were not very helpful and not sympathetic. We had to buy a 24 hr WiFi package @ €39.90 so that we could look for flights home. Reception did print out the flight tickets on the morning my cabin mate left the ship. The rest of the party could not get flights home & we had no choice but to stay on the ship for the rest of the cruise. We had an excursion booked for four on the Monday my cabin mate left, we cancelled the excursion for two of us but we were still charged 50% of the cost. I was really annoyed about this because we had a genuine excuse to cancel. We decided that two from the party would continue to take the excursion as they could not cancel without being charged. We would have all gone to the airport with our friend otherwise. These would be the only negative comments we would have about the cruise. On our last night we went to reception and met Nirmatee Baungally a guest service agent and she was fabulous and so helpful. Keep an eye out for her! The staff on board were just fabulous. Wellington, Thalita and Tamires Cristina in the Bellissima Bar were just wonderful, so attentive, friendly and so much craic. If you meet them please let them know that the 4 Irish Ladies sang their praises. Arta the waiter in our restaurant who took care of us for 7 nights straight was a pure pleasure to deal with, he made our dinner experience every night very special. We also met Tatiana Franco a Program Publisher who gave us loads of information and was very generous with her time. All the staff were extremely friendly in the bars restaurants, shops and housekeeping. The food was very good, we had a drinks package that catered very well for our needs. The party atmosphere every night in the Bellissima lounge was second to none and we felt were we were definitely on holidays. All in all if you are willing to be friendly and have a good time the MSC Bellissima will not disappoint. We will definitely be booking again. (I told all those staff members that I have mentioned that I would be giving them a good review and I took their names down as we were so impressed with them) Read Less

We went 2 adults, 1 child 12yrs, perfect! From stepping on board, the whole experience was brilliant, all staff so helpful, spotless ship, so much going on. We had a cabin on deck 5, so did not got no motion when at sea, the cabin was a good size, & kept extremly clean by Romin. We had the drinks package which is well worth doing, so any drink upto 10€ was included, worth it, as most drinks are 7-8€ + 15% service charge. The entertainment was very good, day & night, if you don't like the party atmosphere then there is the sky lounge, or piano bar on deck 5. The restuarant we had 1st sitting btwn 6.30-6.45, but we never went In till 7-7 15, and was never a problem . Food here was excellent, we never paid to go in other restuarants, as our food so nice, the only 1 we did go to was cirque de soliel, which was 35€ p head, we wasn't impressed, choice of 2 starters, raw tuna or tomato & mozerella, and 2 or 3 main choices, 1 dessert, the theatre hardly had anyone in that ate, so very quite, 1 hour later the people that paid 15€ for show & cocktail came in , the show lasts abt 30mins, we felt better off eating in the inclusive restaurants very disappointed with experience of cirque de soliel, only get bottles of wine, no other choice, and not part of package, so really not worth a 30min show! We done all our own excursions, as found the ship ones expensive, but we chose our own things before we went. We went to a beach in malta on a bus 1.50€ e w, had a lovely day! In Genoa we went to the aquarium which was a 10min walk from ship, they charged 54€, which included a ferry to aquarium, which you did not really need! Trips are personal choice. Disembarking we was given 08.50, but we changed our time to 10 20, no problem in changing. The whole holiday on bellissima was fantastic, we shall be cruising with msc agn. Read Less

MSC BELLISSIMIA it’s been amazing . I posted three days into cruise so just to add, and maybe to put some minds at rest Cabin :13205-Stewart-Francisco , the cabin was beautiful with plenty of space and a balcony .Room was made up three times a day towels refreshed as required .we got breakfast to room most mornings (€4.00) delivery charge ....well worth it Shower was powerful and never a problem with hot water Main dinning room- OMG how people say the food is bad is beyond my comprehension , there is something for every taste . We stayed away from the typical English /Irish type of food and had everything else .... loved the wellness station and the ethnic station was to die for, the standard if the food was amazing ...the staff kept everywhere so clean and the food was refreshed continuously The pizzas ....seriously you need to eat them ...only gorgeous The buzzer for drinks was great never had to wait for a drink ... Allocated dinning Le Creisier- deck 6-table 813 I said it already in a previous post ...It was delicious and our waiters Ray and William were just amazing ... Deck 15 -Out door pool and entertainment Guys to many to mention . They were brilliant ....it is loud but so much fun totally entertained all day long Deck 18 - Horizon Bar My favourite place . This area was quieter lovely pool and lots of sun beds The staff up here are also brilliant nothing was a problem and they really interacted with the guests Casino -Deck 7 Great crack on the slots People have said on some posts that sea day can be maniac . Our last day was a sea day and it was the most chilled of the whole week , got up about 11 strolled down to deck 18 got two sun beds no struggle at all ...cocktails were the tipple of the day for me ...pure bliss Bit of a panick around d 14:00 when the news of the disturbances in Barcelona hit the ship ...most of us with pre booked transfers recieved messages to say they were cancelled but MSC got it sorted ...they put on a fleet of busses to collect us at port and transfer us to the airport ...€19 each very good price (in airport now speaking to a man who for some unknown reason to me decided that he wasn’t giving MSC another penny ...he got a taxi €87..)MSC are not a ripoff They did everything they could to help us all today The shows in the London Theatre put on by entertainment staff are as good as any you would see on stage in Ireland ...Sorry but people who have dissed these shows are not fair ...The team put their heart and soul Into each performance .... Cirque De Soleil -Amazing (Maybe give the cocktail a miss though Read Less
