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.

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 ...

Took my whole family for a nice cruise on the MSC Fantasia and no regret at all. Excellent service on a beautiful ship with lots of activities all day round. 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 ...

For those of you who don't know already, we were lucky enough to win a ticket to an MSC Splendida cruise departing from our charming island, Malta. It was short notice so my partner and I were forced to check what dates we could take leave from work. We settled on 11th to 18th April. It was my 3rd cruise but my partner's and our 2 ½ year old daughter's first cruise. Embarkation We were told ...

Let me start by saying that this was our first time on a cruise and will definitely not be the last. MSC Fantasia is fantastic in all aspects. The food is great - served basically 24hrs a day and always delicious. The service is incomparable - All members of staff are amazing, especially the dining staff. We dined in Cerchio d'Oro, and were given a table by the window, which gives ...

This was my first cruise. I was really looking forward for this as other members of my family, including my wife had gone on cruises previously and were really happy with them from all aspects. However, I must say that I ended up as disappointed with this cruise as much as I was looking forward for it before! First of all, before going any further in my review, I have to tell you that the main ...
