First MSC cruise but not the last

We chose this cruise as it sailed from Havana and we disembarked in our home province of Alicante so we got to see Havana and the Caribbean with no jet lag! The cabin (inside fantastica) was spacious and airy due ...

Not Fantastic

We decided on this cruise as a sudden addition to our bucket list - Havana (Cuba), St Marteen, Antigua, Madera - all in one sweep. Getting through Havana airport was an exceptional experience and one not to be ...

MSC? More like MSCAM

We just disembarked from this cruise and we feel SCAMMED. Be ready for subpar service, a rundown ship, a truly awful excursion selection (and team) and a terrible schedule. Communication is at a minimum on ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, especially for Cuba. We had 3 chances to go ashore at Havana and it exceeded our expectations. The cabin was nice with large window and our cabin steward was excellent at ...

A nasty experience in the Restaurant and a Cabin Downgrade. We felt cheated.

We originally chose this cruise for late 2019 purely on its itinerary but they cancelled it on us. We then had to search and rebook, having to bring the trip forward as well as carefully choosing a cabin on a ...

Great itinerary and cozy ship

We chose this cruise because of the unique itinerary, which included 2 nights spent in Havanna, Cuba. We loved the route (Havanna-Montego Bay-Cayman Islands-Cozumel) and found MSC Armonia to be a cozy ship. Sure, ...

MSC Opera is a poor relative..

Not really impressed with MSC Opera, so I would not recommend it to any of my friends. “Anytime Dining” means 8.30pm – any other time seemed to be an inconvenience (fortunately we were not assigned to one ...
