So much better than the reviews here

Review for MSC Opera to Middle East

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 ...

We chose this cruise as my daughter is based in Dubai. Although we enjoyed the various stops I would not consider the itinerary worthwhile enough to fly all the way from Europe for. In fairness to MSC we found the ship itself to be much better than many of the reviews on here. The cabin was clean, clearly refurbished fairly recently and the same could be said of the ship as a whole. Very clean ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Our two daughters my husband and myself boarded in Venice for a trip of a lifetime. We had a cabin with a toilet flushing problem. We reported the problem and engineers came on several occasions to change parts but they could never fix the problem. The ship was only 3/4 full but we were never offered another cabin. We had to use the downstairs public bathroom the entire cruise. On our last ...

Fantastic experience on our 19 night cruise

We had cruised with Norwegian once before and enjoyed it, but this cruise went beyond our expectations as far as staff, ship amenities and cleanliness, and ports. My wife and I splurged on a two bedroom suite and it was perfect. The main bathroom is outstanding and the size of the balcony and main living area are spacious. It comes with a butler and concierge as well as a cabin steward, and all ...

Suite 9010 - The Cruise That Should Never Have Happened.

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

28 days from Dubai to Hamburg visiting places I had never been was the mantra for our cruise. We set sail on March 12th 2020, same day I believe the world Pandemic was officially announced. Should MSC have let the cruise depart Dubai? - absolutely not. MSC's only objective was to get their vessel back to one of its home ports. There was no regard given as to the well being of its passengers, ...

Review for Jewel of the Seas to Middle East

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We booked this cruise on "Jewel of the Seas" long before the Coronavirus scare and decided to go ahead anyway, as we have a daughter living in Dubai whom we wanted to visit. In the couple of weeks before the start date, RCI sent us several reassuring emails that the cruise would go ahead, so we were never left wondering whether we should cancel. I cannot speak highly enough about this cruise ...

We were literally cut off in the Coronavirus Epidemic so this review will be what happens when things go wrong. We are two upper 30s adults and our two kid, twin boy and girl who were seven and just shy of 8 when we sailed. This sailing was March 9th , so mid-cruise all cruises ceased operations, so this review will let you know how RCCL handles emergencies. The first two days were in the ...

We chose this cruise because of the interesting stops and the fact that the weather in the middle-east is much better than elsewhere, at this time of year. It also offered good value for money, as Emirates flights from the UK were included. Due to the coronavirus, we were told that RC had decided not to stop at either of the two ports in Oman, due to its proximity (and open borders) with Iran. ...
