I heard about the cruise from a cousin who told me about the special that was running towards the end of 2018 and as a family we ended up going as a group of 15 cousins. The embarkation got off on a slow start because we were there on the scheduled time but after the bags were taken from us there was some delay and we never received information on why because the staff was there behind the ...

This cruise had very few downers and mostly was just perfect! Where possible try ensure you book and catch a shuttle form the airport to the port as this ensures you are dropped off right by the embarkation/customs area. If you not do that it just seems like chaos and people queue for hours. IMPORTANT: Remember to pack your costume and a change of clothes in the bag you are taking with you as you ...

Need to separate the selfish smokers to their own area. Only do the muster drill after leaving port, would have been nice to experience the departure from the deck instead of the casino. Embarkation takes along time. Food was excellent , Shows were good. Need to employ friendlier security staff. The Tender process was first class. Well maintained and practical tenders ...

Embarkation was a breeze once we arrived at the port. All staff were courteous and very helpful. Easy to find where to go and what to do. Disembarkation a little more strenuous. The immigration officials were showed that the saying "No Rush in Africa" really is true. Traffic getting to and from the Port was a nightmare. A plan needs to be made to make it easier. A possible thought is to make the ...

My husband and I are a retired couple and run an AirBnB but, we never seem to have the finances to afford a fabulous holiday and, we most definitely did not think that we would ever be able to afford a cruise. Anyway, friends of ours were chatting about their upcoming cruise and they mentioned there was a very special price on offer. Hubby and I enquired at the MSC office in Morningside and we ...

The Pomene cruise that turned out to be a Portuguese Island cruise

Was our first cruise and we were overwhelmed by the luxury and entertainment on the ship. A balcony cabin added to the atmosphere. At dinner we were seated with 3 great couples. The food was excellent but our waiter was very slow. We ended up leaving almost last every evening. The shows in the theater was very good and we enjoyed all the shows. The entertainment in the bars also met our ...

My wife purchased the tickets. Whilst the weather was not our friend, there were enough activities on board to keep one entertained. The staff certainly had a lot of patience, especially the Bar staff as they were kept on their toes at all hours. We were assigned to a 9th floor balcony cabin. Spacious and neat and always keep clean. The food was plentiful with the food platters kept ...

Awesome cruise. Enjoyed all the entertainment. The waiters were the best. Very helpful and attentive. The lounges were luxurious and the music was soothing. We enjoyed the shows at the theatre. The Portugese island experience was the best. The beach was beautiful. However would have preferred being dropped off closer to the seating and eating area. We would love to go on another cruise. The food ...

We have not been on one before and wanted to do something the whole family would enjoy. Our concerns were naturally being sea sick, but the ship is so stable you hardly notice the swaying, and none of us had issues. The Embarkation took a lot longer than expected and by the time we boarded it was after 1pm and with child, we were irritable and hungry. The buffet hall was completely full and we ...

We have been on the MSC Opera and Sinfonia so this was our 3rd trip with MSC. The embarkation was wonderful!!!!! The "Easy On Board" option that we had made embarkation much easier. Within 2 hours from arriving at the harbour we were on the Musica. No standing in queues for hours. We stayed on Deck 10 Minuetto. We decided to go for the "cabin with a balcony" which we really enjoyed. ...
