Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

This was our 3rd cruise with MSC. In the past this was not a cruise line we would have sailed with but when cruising resumed in 2021 this line embarked passengers in Greenock so we took the opportunity to sail on Virtuosa. Truthfully, last year we were not impressed not the fault of MSC more the passenger demographic however it wasn't a typical cruise so we decided to give MSC another chance and ...

MSC CRUISE OR MSC QUEUES?

We chose this cruise as it fitted in with our commitments and we had had a good cruise on virtuosa to the canaries at the beginning of may. the package provided good value for money as we had premium drinks and a balcony cabin. we had no problems with the food, drinks or service and the staff were really good. however the entertainment leaves something to be desired. the theatre shows were ...

This is the 2nd time i have sailed on this ship and i have also taken several cruises with MSC in the past. My expectations of MSC are quite low however, this time for the price it wasn't too bad and there did seem to be a few improvments. Normally i find with MSC that the food is pretty average, im not a fan of the set dining experience and normally with MSC non of the staff ever seem to know ...

A Beautiful Classic Ship

Review for Queen Mary 2 (QM2) to Baltic Sea

My wife and I have been on cruises with all the major lines. This cruise was magical. First --hats off to Cunard for even adding this itinerary--chasing the Northern Lights in Norway was a gamble. It was spectacular --and we had two ports cancelled as a result of storms. This ship is not a "rust bucket"--it is a beautiful and understated ship with great common areas; great staff; the best ...

This was my first cruise with P and O and I had high expectations. Sadly they were not delivered; the ships decor was in places “tired” although some of the bars , such as Adersons and the Crows Nest were very comfortable and restful. This was my third cruise this year and I was surprised to find issues re. staff shortages. Not all of the speciality restaurants were open, there was no turn down ...

Overall Great and exceptional value

Review for MSC Preziosa to Baltic Sea

Just disembarked following a 7 night northern Europe cruise with my family, So lets get the first point out the way which is value of the cruise. This was £600 each including 2 x balcony cabins, easy plus drinks package and wifi. This really is exceptional value and so I did expect a few things not to be up to scratch at this price point, but thankfully there were very few compromises. I ...

Decent ship spoiled by various issues, and in particular cleanliness.

Review for Ventura to Europe - All

Well that is us ashore and making our way home from Ventura. We had an amazing holiday, met great people, and stunning port calls. Value for money was excellent but where do you start with Ventura? She is clearly a Marmite ship with many loyal followers which is good, however and for us we was not impressed at all. Cleanliness is well well below acceptable standards never mind what you expect ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Ok everyone knows the cruise ships, but this is a list of cutbacks my wife and I found after two years not cruising because of covid. P&O take note. Remember this is for Iona, other ships could be different. In The Cabin, No more little sweets, No conditioner for hair, No port info, Postcard, Writing paper, No turn down service at night, No little chocolates. Room service no ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

In need of a break at short notice repeating an itinerary that we have travelled before. First time on Iona and unfortunately the last. Embarkation was good. Booked on a balcony guarantee basis and were given deck 8 promenade the downside being it has a permanent flow of walkers/joggers and some very nosey people who jump up to look into your cabin. Also a greater problem is the deck is full of ...

Utter Shambles

Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

A poorly designed ship with no areas for adults with no children to relax. The ship is clearly built as a ‘holiday factory’ and the experience was more like Butlins or Benidorm rather than a normal cruise. MSC cram their ships full of families with no consideration for couples or families without kids. Food on board isn’t great and prepare yourself for mediocre, even in the speciality restaurants. ...
