After chaotic embarkation arrangements at Genoa we were pleasantly surprised at first by the quality of our suite. We soon found out that the advertisement of the suite as offering internet connection (with fee) was incorrect (we were simply told to go to reception and buy wifi time for connection in some public areas). My netbook had no wireless adapter! We complained and pointed out the adverts ...

We sailed from Genoa to Cape Town departing 25 October. Embarkation was chaotic and despite being a member of the MSC club we were denied priority boarding and it took over 2 hours. Upon arrival aboard at 17h50 we found that the Lifeboat drill had already taken place at 17h30 even though over 200 passengers had still not embarked. We received a letter in our cabin mildly rebuking us for not ...

We booked this trip because of its interesting itinerary, 3 nights in Genoa, followed by the cruise and ending with 3 nights in Cape Town. Previous reports of the ship were not very encouraging. Embarkation was a terrible start as it took 2 hours as previous reviewers have said. Surely it could have been handled better. However, once on board we were delighted to find the ship gleaming, elegant ...

We sailed from genoa on the 24 October to Cape Town on the MSC Opera. It is an amzing ship and had just come out of dry dock. Leaving from Genoa was with mixed feelings, a dirty port city with not much to be positive about - rip off taxis from the airport to poor service in restaurants. That said the ship itself was first class with brilliant service. The downside was the food. If you like your ...

This was our second 'relocation' cruise (the transfer of ships from the Northern Hemisphere to the Southern Hemisphere for the summer and then vice versa in March / April); this time from Genoa to Cape Town and many exotic places in between. Last year we travelled on MSC Opera from Venice to Buenos Aires and had a similar experience. We both agreed that this year's cruise was even slightly better, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Background I'm a single European woman in her forties who has travelled extensively in the last 30 years. This was my tenth cruise with MSC although my first on this ship. I normally travel alone and enjoy a laid back, relaxing cruise experience rather than an energetic 24/7 party atmosphere. My reason for choosing this particular cruise was the opportunity to have 3 weeks of relaxation, sunshine, ...
