This is our second MSC cruise, We did the maiden voyage of Seascape last fall. I note some off the quite strenuous criticisms of MSC...and cannot complete deny them...but Perhaps it will help to explain what type of cruisers we are... -We go often, don't drink except wine for dinner and an occasional; beer. -Don't spend extra on specialty restaurants...on Norwegian, because of our ...

I haven’t bothered to write a review in a number of years but thought I should, as Harmony was my first full capacity cruise since Covid hit. I’ve sailed on Harmony many times and the entertainment and activities are what keep me coming back. The food, however, leaves much to be desired. We felt the need to purchase the Unlimited Dining Package this year because of the decline in main dining room ...

This was my second Royal cruise and second Oasis class ship. Whereas my first was the Allure during the Omicron wave and only 44% full, this was very clearly a full capacity ship. The rooms are excellent, very clean, modern, and spacious (even in my interior room). Room steward Igusti from Indonesia did a great job throughout the week. Entertainment continues to be great. The Aquatheatre, ...

Oasis class ship are huge. The different "neighborhoods" do a great job of dispersing passengers and the ship although busy, never seems cramped. We enjoy the large ships (sailed Oasis class 3x) because of the variety of activities and venues. If you don't like a lot of walking you would probably prefer a smaller ship class. Embarkation has been perfected. We had a 11:00 arrival time and ...

Were were Back2Back 11/26/22 and 12/4/22 We are long time cruisers. We have loyalty to Royal and achieved D+ some years ago. We have experienced Holland, Celebrity, Carnival, Costa, MSC, Princess and Norwegian and it is disappointing to see the cruise experience changing to an experience looking at the bottom line more than the passenger experience. First the ship is beautiful. The decor ...

We have always enjoyed RC cruises--as the entertainment and food have been top notch. We loved our experience on our first large ship, The Allure, in October, and were hoping for a similar positive experience on The Harmony. Activities and Shows: The Aqua Show, Broadway production of Grease, the RC original stage production of Columbus, Ice Shows, Magic Shows, and Comedy on the Harmony ...

I disembarked this morning so this is fresh in my mind. This itinerary took us to Labadee, which is a private cove in Haiti. We also went to Curaçao and Aruba. Included in this were 4 sea days as well. Ship: The good. The ship was incredible! From the variety of places to eat, explore, and entertainment venues. We did not do any speciality restaurants on this trip but I was amazed that ...

We chose this particular cruise as we wanted to sell across the Atlantic after a European vacation. First and foremost the ship is absolutely beautiful! In addition to being beautiful, it was spotless! Staff are constantly cleaning! We were fortunate to be on this particular cruise that left from Portugal across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. There were about 1100 guests and over 1300 staff. We ...

We chose this cruise because as a retired couple it seemed like a new adventure to get back to the US. Embarcation took 1 hour and 10 minutes. The ship is a cross between Las Vegas and Star Trek. Lots of mirrors, glass and flash. The buffet food (we only went there 5 times) was very good and well-presented. The main dining rooms were elegant and service was great most of the time. MSC ...

We had been on The MSC Seaside pre Covid and had such a wonderful Yacht Club Experience. This time we weren't as impressed. Here are a few of my in no spacific order observations and thoughts. There were a few things in specific we were not at all pleased with. Although the food quality is often what one sees on MSC Reviews our first experience we actually liked the options and quality of the ...
