A experienced cruising kids opinion of MSC cruises

So I hear other people saying the cruise line in general sucks but they are forgetting they aren't a american cruise line like royal carribean is. They are new to the American market. The other thing is that people are saying you should never go on a MSC cruise but that's their experience. If you want to go on a MSC cruise go ahead the negative reviews are just sometimes nonsense. But my ...

The Good: The cabin was clean. The cabin steward was fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about the cabin stewards on our deck. All were extremely helpful and friendly. I wanted to adopt our cabin steward and bring him home with us. He was that good. The crew was mostly friendly and helpful. The exception to this was the bar staff on deck 15. Rude and dismissive if you asked for ...

Entertainment was excellent, service was great, balcony cabin was nice with ample storage, embarkation was fast and easy. The huge negative was that the food in the main dining room was the worst of any cruise ship we’ve cruised (and we’ve been on eight past cruises with RCI, Carnival, and Celebrity). Most of the food was too salty and some of the vegetarian entrees had really awful, plain ...

We just sailed on Harmony last week and it was just ok. It was our first time sailing out of Galveston, it was nearly 1.5hr uber ride from Houston IAH to our Airbnb in Galveston - never encountered such expensive pre-cruise hotels as what was available in Galveston. Also quite a lot of Texans on board with their cowboy hats and cowboy boots, plus several with their Trump wear - there was country ...

All I can say is that those reviews posted complaining about the food were posted by spoked brats or worse. Having cruised 2 other lines, one in 2023 (Royal Caribbean-Europe) and Princess 2012 (Europe), this food was superb by any measure- quality and freshness excellent, superb presentation, and quantity no problem. Our waiter continually tempted our palates by offering us additional appetizers ...

The crew were very polite, the food was not bad either, and our cabin was kept clean! That is the nice thing I have to say about the cruise! Rather than that it was an expensive cheap cruise. The ship was croweded, you had to search for launge chairs to sit, you had to stay in lines for everything, from the hot tub to entering the restaurant. The worst thing was their internet packages. I believe ...

Worst cruise line by far

This was our first and last experience sailing with MSC. In all honesty, the problems began far before we even boarded the ship. Their website is horrible. Their customer service phone lines were just as bad. Getting answers from anybody varied depending on who you got to answer the phone that day. It took me multiple phone calls just to book an excursion. Several more phone calls to change the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I was on the same ship last August. It was not very good, Food and drinks ran out all the time, the food both quality and quantity was bad and I am not fussy with food. But I am extremely pleased and happy to tell you food in the buffet has improved so very much that I thought I was in a different ship and very seldom ran out of things any more. MSC finally got it. Same with the seafood ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I have been on many cruises and several cruise lines and this was the worst. I will never do MSC again. Most of the staff was rude. The man at the service desk was rude and came back at me when I told him this is the worst cruise I’ve been on. They were not nice to the kids. The sheets on the bed had little balls all over, and the pillows were horrible. The bathroom was so tiny that if ...
