Is MSC the worst cruise line?

I don't know whether it's the worst but it sure is among the ones I travelled on.To me good and imaginative food is important and the food on MSC is pathetic.In the buffet pasta and pizza everywhere.No ethnic food, no smoked salmon or pates, no decent selection of cheese.Its more like a factory canteen .The cherry on the cake is treating ice cream as if its an expensive delicacy and non existing ...

Great Small Ship Experience - Third Time with Star Clippers.

We chose a repositioning itinerary that took us from Malta to Malaga, stopping in Sardinia, the Balearics, and along the Spanish Coast. Previous cruises had set our expectations. Star Clipper is a small line with three small ships that use sail frequently. Frequent stops in European ports insured that the food stocks were excellent. As a repositioning cruise, the opportunities for water ...

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 ...

We are an American family of four with two kids 18 and 16. We have cruised many times before but not on MSC and not in Europe. We had a great cruise! The food, service and overall experience exceeded our expectations. We had a duplex suite which had plenty of room and great views. We made the most of th drink package and the bartenders and waiters were great. We really enjoyed the food at ...

Worst cruise ever

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was a cruise billed as Sicilian Food and Wine Experience. Not only was there no Sicilian meals, only one night with specialty wines from Sicily. It was extremely disorganized, nobody knew anything, and nobody tried to solve any problems. Extremely rude excursion staff. Very argumentative when we were booked on a tour that we tried to cancel. When I showed them documents that stated their ...

1. Cabin had layer of dust on furniture and carpet hadn't been cleaned in ages. It only got a good clean after complaining - only to be bitten by dust mites. Balcony furniture is in very poor shape and needs replacing. Hair dryer was broken and dangerous with parts exposed. 2. Food is mediocre and often recycled ie desserts available in restaurants the night before are recycled for breakfast ...

We wanted a break in mid April.. . . . . . it turned out to be very disappointing. 1. All jacuzzis were always full of people with no control of time limits so we stayed out. 2. Very young children (some with dummies) were uncontrolled, both on the dance floor and at the evening meal. No problem with children playing at the right time and place.. 3. The evening's theater music ...

I have read many reviews of Oceana and in some cannot recognise the experience we had. It was our first cruise and were a bit nervous about what we would find. All in all it was fabulous! Our Cabin steward, Socorro, was great. The cabin was spotless and we felt really looked after. The waiters in le Jardin and the Ligurian were helpful and attentive. Reception were able to answer all our ...
