The cruise seemed like we would enjoy experience. We were not informed that a covid pcr test was needed till arriving at port of demarcation . After setting sail we were informed that we needed a visa to visit Jedah which we found impossible to obtain so lost one port of call. We were looking forward to navigate through the Suez canal but we could not access front of ships as this part of ...

We chooe this cruise as our friends we going on it and it ticked a few of our bucket list locations, MSC Europa is HUGE, no walking deck, to get to some of the shows you have to walk through the Casino and it always smelt of cigarette smoke and really not very nice at all. Food was very average, Staff in all area's were great, We booked an excursion prior to leaving Australia and on the day of the ...

Was really looking forward to this cruise. But now I am really looking forward to getting off. On boarding ship it was at first glance very impressive. The ship has being all over it, but that's as far as it goes. The main inside deck is deck 6, on this you will find various things such as a bar, Chocolate shop, phone box for the secret bar, pizza and burger, a few shops, guest services and ...

We chose the cruise because of its destinations ( Middle East, Suez and Italy). We were a bit concerned of the many seadays and overall choosing an italian cruiseline. We had a cabin with balcony, deck 5 "Fantastica". Nice with good bed and pillows.Could have used more electrical outlets. The ship is huge. That means you've got to walk a lot. Interior decoration is modern and tasteful. We ...

we chose this cruise at last minute - the ship itself was clean and well run however the meals at the buffet wasnt hot and not a lot of choice. the restaurant meals were ok but nothing exciting as the menu was a bit much the same most nights. we booked an outside cabin with restricted view OMG we couldn't see outside the window at all, not even the sky as a life boat was hard up against the ...

We chose a Dubai cruise and MSC seemed to be a good choice. In the main that proved to be correct but there were some inadequacies on the cruise line. Firstly and foremost we received embarkation details saying that we could not board until 19.00 hours which mean we got into our cabin a little after 20.00 hours having extended our hotel booking to accommodate a late checkout. Having boarded we ...

I've been on a lot of cruises with companies like Royal Carribean, Norwegian, Celebrity, Carnival, and Princess and wanted to give MSC a try because their itineraries seemed a little more exotic. Checking in was pleasant and the balcony room was generous but thats where it begins and ends. The service on this ship was terrible in the main dining room and buffet. The food was horrible, the ...

I usually do travel in the luxury class however from time to timeI do something else just to be away for one week or so. I had pleasant stays on the Splendida and the Seaview before so I gave the brand new ship a chance. Embarkation in Dubai was a very fast procedure for guests in Yacht Club. The World Europa best can be described as a floating huge resort with lots of restaurant , bars and ...

We have been on several cruises in the Caribbean,Middle East and Asia. We chose this Cruise because we were going to Dubai anyway. We have sailed with MSC before. The choices out of Dubai are limited so having booked this and having read the reviews I was honestly not expecting much. However we have been so pleasantly surprised. The food has been excellent and the staff among the ...

Chose due the location- winter sun, price and itinerary. Older ship but very well maintained. Staff lovely, hard working and attentive. Food good, but not the choice or quality of royal Caribbean or celebrity. Quality drinks package choice of premium spirits and European beers. Ports of call were interesting and we had plenty of time in port to explore. The private island would ...
