The most fantastic cruise of our lives

I've seen some less than stellar reviews regarding the RC Western Mediterranean. If you will notice, most of the complaints seem to be focused on alcohol problems, and posted by alcoholics (IMHO). The Allure of the ...

We researched and studied for months before booking our honeymoon on the edge. Then we saved for 2 years to be able to do all the things we saw and believed off the marketing. Overall the ship was nice, crew was ...

MSC Grandiosa - Smart ship but too busy

This was our second experience of MSC following a short cruise only a few days earlier on the Presiosa. Upon embarkation we were assaulted by 'in your face' crew members on a mission to sell you 'things', sadly ...
