We travelled on more than 60 cruises on Silversea, Celebrity, Cunard Grill Class, HAL, Viking, RCCL, Crystal, Seabourn, Hapag Lloyd, Oceania and Regent. We wanted to try the MSC Yachtclub. Well first we arrived in Marseille cruiseterminal 10:00 AM, so way to early but the butler at checkin said "no Problem" and brought us on board to the beautiful Topsail Lounge dedicated for Yachtclub only. Our ...

I need to preference the review by saying this is for the Yacht Club. I can't speak to other cabins or dinning. Firstly, Yacht Club is the only way I'd do this ship. The service is insanely good. We existed the cab in Barcelona and before I could determine where I needed to be, someone from MSC spotted my yacht club tag and escorted us immediately to a private area with drinks and food ...

My wife and I watched a video of the new ship at the travel agent and we decided to book. Embarkation was easy in Malta where we boarded. Room was good and clean, we always book inside cabins as we spend very little time there. On the first four days I was asked to go to reception every day because they were having problems with my credit card, this was a first for me and I get around, never ...

Quite an experience, but with minor inconveniences We were not given choice of excursions by the Travel agent The offered excursions were not covered by a short video on the TV system of the excursion with details such as length of coach drive, walking necessities during tour, etc. We werre not even informed that one tour was by boat and not by coach (Portofino excursion) All inclusive ...

I am not much into writing however wanted to write this review as i do not know why people give bad or negative reviews of MSC, After a break from MSC (our last cruise on the MSC was in 2012) to try different cruise lines, I wanted to go on the MSC preziosa so we just returned from the med cruise departing and stopping in Malta and we were highly satisfied. as a regular cruiser I have many cruise ...

We thought the ship was magnificent and the crew first class.Special mention should be made of the cabin steward and the waiting staff in the Velvet Lounge who were exceptional.The food we found was not as good as expected and the helpings were small.Saying this you could have as many courses as you wanted and we did not leave the table hungry.Our main criticism was concerning the tour staff. ...

Fantastic evening complimented with good talented actors at the theater. Excellent food all day round serve by respectful kind waiters with two exceptional waiters Angker Riana from Indonesia and Damion Hawthorne from Jamaica at the red ...

This was my third cruise so I was pretty exciting to go on a ship once again with my family for a holiday! I was a bit worried after reading these interviews but it didn't ruin my excitement! So let's begin piece by piece Embarkation; Both with NCL and costa the embarkation/check in took ages but with MSC it took only 15mins!!! As we gave our tickets, passports and deposit we went out of ...

I am going to compare this cruise to our RCCL cruise which we took out of venice last year. Our holiday started on a very good note...... we were upgraded from outside to balcony cabin Category 8. I was hesitant at first, since I have 2 young kids and thought this might be dangerous, but I had no problems, and it was very well worth it! We had paid Eur990 per adult and Eur120 per child for ...
