It's great to be back cruising, but for me MSC will probably be a one off.

I am a very seasoned cruiser with 94 cruises behind me. We booked this cruise five days before sailing as we were supposed to be on the Crystal Debussy that was cancelled because of the Netherlands closing down. So not wanting to stay home for another holiday season we went on the Grandiosa. We boarded in Marseille which is not a very accommodating port for moving your luggage. There are no ...

We've sailed 54 cruises to date, several in Yacht Club with MSC. Im not doing a cruise review as others have previously covered most things. My comments are specifically related to the MSC Covid "Policy". Their Policy is enforced like a military dictatorship one minute, casual indifference the next and then with a total disregard for even basic precautions. You need to be double jabbed ...

This post is my honest open account of our holiday 23-30th October on MSC Grandiosa. There were 4 adults one with a disability and 2 children aged 5 and 2. 2x balcony rooms not connected both Fantastica. We have sailed with MSC once before. We went to celebrity and came back to MSC. Sharing this as I want readers to understand we’ve been on MSc pre covid and have that to bench this ...

It was overall a very nice experience in the MSC Grandiosa, even with the very strict Covid restrictions on board. * Food quality is very good, specially the Italian dishes * Beverage service is slow and sometimes even rude some of the bars. * Guest communication regarding restrictions and rules, specially in the Jacuzzis should be improved. It's annoying having to reserve a place to ...

This was our 5th MSC cruise and 3rd in Yacht Club (we have taken 30+ cruises from Carnival to Regent and a suite on the QE2). The prior 4 were out of Miami therefore we are not sure which differences were COVID-related and which relate to the different ship or location. Booking this cruise was a "roll of the dice" after three prior cancellations. We were not sure that it would actually take place ...

We thought the drinks package was pretty good (premium) so no complaints about that. The staff in general work very hard, they are very friendly and try to engage as much as possible and they really make you feel welcome. I big shout out to the staff at the Champagne bar who looked after us really well and also the two girls who worked in the Master Tavern so if you happen to go to these ...

We had originally planned a cruise on another line, which was cancelled. And a second, which was cancelled. And a third, which was cancelled. Our cruise on the MSC Grandiosa was a happy accident. We sailed from Barcelona. MSC embarks and disembarks passengers at ports along the way, which I had never experienced before. Disembarkation, in particular, was much nicer this way than ...

Lets start off with the really great. Cruising is back! We are a couple nearing 50 and have now been on 85+ cruises on 11 different lines all over the world. Our main go to has been Celebrity, Royal and lately HAL and Oceania. We enjoy great food and wonderful service and this cruise ticket off just one of those boxes. More on that later. We chose this cruise just for the only reason MSC at ...

Excellent Covid Cruise in the Yacht Club

I don't understand why people are so afraid of cruises. Cruise ships are probably the safest places in the world. I wish all services ashore were so professional in terms of Covid prevention. Before boarding the ship, we had to do two tests, a PCR test in our country and a swab test at the terminal. Body temperature was measured before entering the terminal and on board the ship every day ...

We are belgian frequent cruisers and we couldn't wait any longer to cruise again. So we did. After a max 72 hours pre cruise covid19 test at home and a new quick covid19 test in Genoa (50 min) it was time for boarding. Embarkation was really quick after a negative test (but we had to stay in numberd groups of app.25 guests) No rush, because there were only app. 750 !!! guests on board, ...
