Ridiculous Covid testing procedure before boarding created a strong negative impression…
"But this time, in spite of bringing a fresh test result to the port, our boarding was delayed by about two and a half hours.When I took a cruise from Barcelona on the same ship in October last year, there was no requirement for a additional test - only the test performed prior to boarding, and then the result was ready wirhin 10 minutes...."Read More

Lovely cruise but with shockingly bad customer service.

We chose this cruise as a budget trip, so we chose a minimum requirement cabin and the very basic drink package with a determination to get the most out of our pre payment and tightly restricting further costs. Our needs were simple to relax with a drink on board and to explore the various ports we visited. Embarkation and Disembarkation were pretty much flawless. We were on the ship before we ...

Just disembarked off the Grandiosa, stayed in a Yacht Club deluxe suite. Cabin 18014 was below pool deck, only heard moving of chairs once early in the morning. The service in the YC was good. Cabin was always cleaned promptly. Restaurant wait staff was good. We had the same waiter each night. Bartenders in Top Sail were great. The bad- entertainment was a major disappointment. Strings was ...

This was our 3rd time on MSC, in a Yacht Club standard cabin with balcony. We were expecting the same good feeling after our cruise but felt let down by the constant lack of organization of the whole cruise. The problem is that the staff had not been trained to do their job, giving out bad information, and not admitting that problems had occurred. There is also an issue with the lack of ...

This cruise was the result of three previously booked cruises cancelled coming together as one dur to Covid. We cruise as a group of 4 over three bookings. All the staff were friendly, and many quickly learnt what our preferences were. Had a great time in the sports complex playing the games. A few too many of the arcade games were broken which was a shame. Bowling at sea is always fun! The ...

A family with a child (4 year old) had a good time in this cruise. We liked most the bowling aswell as some of the evening shows for the enetertainment. A big plus is their child day care, free of cost, where the small one could draw and play with others. They even had some movies for them. Clean room, the food was good overall, we even tried the speciality restaurants as they had an ...

Having been a frequent MSC cruiser in South Africa we chose this relocation cruise as the best bang for our bucks. Originally booked in 2019 we were yet another casualty of Covid with our cruise being cancelled repeatedly from 2020/21 and into 2022. At last we were allowed to cruise but under Covid restrictions and with PCR testing together with our vaccination certifications being required. I ...

This cruise was originally booked for April 2021 but had to be moved to September and then April 2022 due to covid. MSC were very strict on covid regulations which was reassuring. Embarkation was a bit hectic, there was no one to tell us where the Yacht Club area for boarding was. Eventually we got to our cabin which was not the one I booked. The best part of the yacht club is the dining ...

The cruise was absolutely excellent in every way. The ship is beautiful and the staff is wonderful. However the testing requirement pre-boarding was a total mess. First of all MSC hadn’t made it clear that it was necessary to bring a negative Covid test (not older than 48 hours) to the check-in desk. So on arrival to the port we were sent to a nearby pharmacy to get our test certificate. ...
