Greatness in the Mediterranean sea

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Grandiosa

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

This was our third cruise with MSC. We'd recently completed a 3 night cruise on Virtuosa, so when boarding The Grandiosa we already knew the ship's layout which saved time. The ship itself is absolutely stunning. Although it's nearly identical to Virtuosa the colours are different, and in my opinion I thought overall it looked grander. Dinning 1. Food in the MDR La Perle Gries was of a ...

Brand New Ship, European Sensibility, Latest Onboard Technology, Terrific Value. You should try MSC World Europa.

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC World Europa

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We are Americans. When we travel to Europe, we want to experience European sensibilities. Respect of different cultures, international cuisine, and the sounds of many languages. MSC has found it's niche. Great value, brand new ships, terrific variety in cuisine and a staff that is second to none. This is our second sail thru MSC. The first was MSC Meraviglia in 2019 to Scandinavia. One ...

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Costa Toscana

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We are veterans of about 25 cruises. We have been on NCL, HAL, Celebrity, Windstar, Viking, Princess and Carnival. We have cruised the Caribbean, the Mediterranean the Baltic, Alaska and a trans Atlantic. This was our first cruise on Costa. We joined some extended family who had already booked. They are European. 1) The Costa App is not compatible with the US App Store, so we could not ...

Friendly but too big cruiseship

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Seashore

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

The MSC Seashore cruise was offering a 5 days cruise through the Mediterranean from Genova to Rome, Napels and Corsica and return to Genova. It is a brand new ship, huge, many restaurants, lounges, atrium, shops, special lights, elevators on the back with a view. We were/ are very impressed! There are several drinking plans. For us the easy plus, so all drinks to 9 euro. Good, no ...

A bit lower than Carnival but can’t beat the rate

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Magnifica

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Overall, the cruise was exceptional for the amount of money charged. We especially liked the shore excursions which were made possible by staff member, Aimane Buhamza. He managed to secure us 3 spots on the long sold-out “Christmas in Rome” tour where we got to see the Pope deliver his annual Christmas address to the world from St. Peter’s Square. He not only got that secured for us, but also the ...

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Virtuosa

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

I am a regular cruiser with RCI & PO. This is my first and last time with MSC. This can't be classed as a cruise. Its just a awfully run ferry. Cons - No soul -Same food every night in the buffet -Staff have CANT do attitude -Safety doesn't seem Important to MSC. (Seen with my own eyes) -Don't accept complaints at reception. - Doesn't feel like a cruise. Just a transport ...

Worst Cruise Experience Ever. Avoid!

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Splendida

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

Complaints: 1) Even before the cruise started, upon booking at the said price, 30% of the cruise price was added on as taxes. That was a surprise to me - I never found out who got that tax money, or what it was used for. €300 wasted? Time wasted trying to find out, unsuccessfully, what it was about. 2) Before I even got on the cruise there was chaos. Despite reading all paperwork - I was not ...

Pity the Yacht Club restaurant was 350 metres away from the YC

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Preziosa

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The Yacht Club is a brilliant concept, including both boarding and disembarking which is extremely well organised and we had 5 weeks previously on the MSC Virtuosa, where we had found the YC to be a completely self contained ship within a ship, this is not the same on the Preziosa. Let me first explain that both my wife and I both suffer from walking difficulties, we are both over 85 years of ...

Food well well below standard, disembarkation process Trieste a refuge nightmare. Never again

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Fantasia

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We found a good deal and brought the extended family. The good: the ship is good enough, lots of cafes mostly closed when you need them. Staff overall good and helpful, some exceptions. Cabins are small and older looking. TV like a postage stamp with white noise. The bad: The buffet is like a crocodile feeding ground. Food mainly carbs and mostly poor in taste. Although the manager was very ...

A few flaws but wouldn't hesitate to book again

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Seaview

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Embarkation was problematic and stressful with ground staff unwilling to let us check in because of an alleged problem with a passport (the problem was non-existent and was finally cleared up by immigration but not before we'd been forced to stand to one side of the queue for 30 mins in 35°C heat). Once on board, however, all was forgiven. All the glitter and glam you'd expect from MSC. Pools and ...
