Never again with MSC

Review for MSC Orchestra to Europe - Western Mediterranean

The ship was old and dated but perfectly comfortable in the public lounges and cabin and the crew were lovely but that’s just about where the positives end. Unfortunately the food onboard was the worst I have experienced. This was our first time with MSC out of almost 20 cruises with various companies and we have never experienced such poor quality dining. There seemed to be a distinct lack of ...

This is the worst cruise line we've ever been on

We chose this 10 day cruise solely because we had never visited 6 of the 8 destinations and it had been some years since we had visited the other two. As we were going to be travelling as part of a group, the price for an outside balcony cabin was good. THE CABIN - Size was as expected. We had an additional sofa bed in our cabin, other members of our group only had an armchair which is not ...

We have just finished our Mediterranean cruise and had time to reflect on it. It was a multiple embarkation trip with passengers coming and going on a daily basis and at this time of the year there were many families with young children. Overall, having been on many MSC cruises including two in 2021 we were very disappointed with this cruise. I am sure that the Covid pandemic and the need to take ...

Big mistake

My previously booked NCL cruise out of Portugal was cancelled and I was hoping to replace it with similar cruise in the same time block and saw this low-priced alternative but it was a big mistake. Terrible communication, never told me what was needed or even tickets, unable to reach MSC by phone or login in on website. Never told me port of Casablanca cancelled or that could not leave ship at ...

Total Shambles!

Having sailed with MSC numerous times on several different MSC ships, our group were looking forward to our 9 night cruise. Embarkation at Malaga a nightmare. Having obtained our PCR certificates, our luggage was put onto the ship without anyone bothering to check that we had the necessary paperwork. As it was a requirement by MSC to have the PCR test 72 hours prior to boarding, you would have ...

Don't book Tui Marella Cruises- absolutely dreadful!

Review for Marella Discovery to Mediterranean

6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

Although embarkation went smoothly the rest of the cruise was dire. We were told the ship had been undergoing renovations in the month before, but there were problems throughout the ship. The cabins were clean but dated; and there were lots of people having problems with the electrics and air conditioning. Although the room stewards were helpful some of the reception staff were incompetent and ...

First experience of Tui cruise. Only really one small but important niggle.

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Our reason for booking this Tui cruise was that we booked late and needed a disabled cabin, Tui were the only cruise line that could accommodate this at such short notice. We are not “seasoned” cruisers, this was only our fourth cruise in total and we have only sailed with P&O previously. We were nervous reading the reviews but have to say from the outset that we did enjoy our seven nights ...

Wonderful First Cruise Experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had a balcony suite and if you can afford the upgrade it is well worth it. The accommodation is amazing and to wake up to a different view from your bed every morning is amazing. The cabin stewards were spot on, every day. The cinema, while a nice looking comfortable cinema, didn't really have much to offer by way of current films. The live theatre entertainment though was excellent. The ...

Thomson lost its way

Like another reviewer on Discovery 2. We have been cruising with Thomson/Tui for many years and agree with everything they have said. Celebration was our favourite ship until Discovery came and then we saw how tired Celebration looked. Our first cruise on Discovery was really good ;we were really impressed so we booked another. There were 2 years between the cruises. We were shocked how tired it ...
