Our travel agent raved about MSC and their new man-made private island. Our trip on the Meraviglia was a cruise to remember it was horrible. Embarkcation went ok even though the lines were long, they went fast. Upon entering the ship, no staff and no welcome drink. Entering our balcony cabin #11069, there was no toilet paper nor tissues. Had to get our steward to give us a roll of toilet paper ...

Some aspects of the cruise were very good and some were very bad. We stayed in the Yacht Club so please keep that in mind when reading. Embarkation / Disembarkation This is a big benefit of the yacht club. Both embarkation and disembarkation were pretty seamless. When we got to the port we checked in and were escorted to the lounge where we were greeted with champagne, food, etc. It is ...

I've sailed several times on Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian, and I really wanted to experience the MSC brand and Meraviglia, despite the mixed reviews, because the ship seemed very impressive in videos. I got an excellent last minute deal and decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, the bad aspects of it outweighed the good ones. The Good: - Our cabin was very nice, very clean, ...

We have sailed Yacht Club Suite on MSC Divina and it was fantastic. Yacht Club Suite on Meraviglia was the complete opposite. Other than the Cruise Critic Party, which MSC does better than any other cruise line, service, food quality, and staff attitudes were not up to the standards we experienced on the Divina. Problems were listened to intently, apologies were prolific, but no actions were ...

Find another ship or cruise line. This was miserable. First let’s say the disembark time was over an hour late, which in turn caused the load times to be pushed back. When you have 4K plus people waiting, it gets a little crazy. Next, let’s start with food. The food is TERRIBLE. For the formal night, minced lobster ravioli in a chicken broth. What?!?! The steak is almost inedible. We walked ...

We did this cruise as a company trip. It was my first cruise. I really expected more. The service was terrible except for one waitress named Nikki from the horizon pool bar! She was the best thing about the ship! Always smiling and happy to serve! But the rest of the crew was rude and seemed as if they hated their job. No one at the main bar by the stairs in the lobby would even look at me. I ...

Too big. Borderline chaotic. Weak food and service.

Just go to a nice vegas hotel. You don't even feel like you are on a ship. Port Everglades is an ugly, poorly organized way to start the dismal boarding process. RCL just doesn't seem prepared to handle the massive numbers of people at the "pier" (a vast, ugly, noisy warehouse). Boarding took over 4 hours of line after line and waiting. Totally impersonal feel. Dining is totally unpleasant ...

This cruise was a birthday gift sailing the same day of my birthday. Immediately upon arrival to the port we were told that they were experiencing a computer glitch and were unable to start boarding the passengers in a timely fashion - later we found out that the ship had arrived to port with "unknown" travelers and that the boarding process had been significantly delayed because both US Marine ...
