Amazing experience!! This was our first time on a cruise, we choose 3 days to try for the first time and we had lots of fun. My kids enjoyed it too, just fantastic!! The cruise was beautiful and huge. We booked 2 balcony rooms. The rooms were very clean, bed was very comfy and clean, washroom very clean. We didn't get the connecting rooms so both rooms were on different floors, which was ...

We felt we got everything we expected (and indeed, wanted). Embarkation and disembarkation was efficient. We had to wait for our room as they were doing a deep clean due to illness on board. P&O staff were doing a good job of maintaining hygiene standards throughout our week. Our cabin was spacious and we loved the layout and mirrors! The cabin bathroom is a bit tired. Shower cabin needed ...

I’m not sure quite where to start! I booked this mini cruise for my 9 year old son and I as a bank holiday adventure/birthday treat. Let’s start with the positives. The process to was easy I liked the app and ease of check in. Also boarding the ship was efficient and easy. Our cabin looked very new and was spotless with comfy beds. The ship was clean. However, after this experience I’m ...

Apart from the slow embarkation due to norovirus on previous cruises our cruise was excellent. Our highlights were the food and entertainment. I highly recommend all the speciality restaurants our favourites been Epicurean and Sindhu where the food and service in both were outstanding. The crepe suzette was unbelievable cooked in front of us WOW. The 3 shows from the headliners were ...

I went on the MSC Virtuosa with a group of friends for the bank holiday weekend. What a disappointment! The ship was far too crowded and there were not enough staff or facilities to cater for them all. It was a bit of a booze cruise atmosphere, which is not my cup of tea but understand that that is what some groups go for. I wouldn't have minded if there were any quieter, uncrowded areas of ...

MSC Virtuosa rip off and slow service. We travelled on Saturday 4th May 2024 from Southampton to Cherbourg and back on a short mini-cruise and found MSC to be a total disaster from start to finish. Embarkation at Southampton was speedy but that’s where it all ended until our disembarkation. The ship itself is modern and fully equipped but this comes at a cost due to its passenger capacity ...

Enjoyable and great value for money. We’d cancelled a 5 star East Med cruise due to insurance and security problems. Replaced with this and another Britannia cruise in August for the same cost. Of course some aspects aren’t Holland America standard but in short, the ship isn’t crowded, it’s modern and easy to navigate (the app, table booking etc work just fine) the MDR food is okay but you’ll need ...

This a tired ship in need of a good refurb. The public areas are cramped. Having been on other Vista class ships this one is probably the worst in terms of internal layout. The food is really bad, the buffet being marginally better than the main dining room. The problem with the main dining room are the queues. Too much time is spent waiting although the British are stoic when it comes to ...

It’s a small ship and needs a TLC but we had a great time. Loved the Globe with the excellent band Pulse. Service very good through except for dining room where very slow. Visiting entertainers brilliant, including a unique impressionist/remixed, etc. ports of call were excellent and transfers were provided. Weather was not brilliant and had to dodge the rain but it didn’t spoil it. ...
