IN SAUDI ARABIA WITH MSC BELLISSIMA
"We could cancell our bill the day before (very convenient) and having back the rest of money cash in USD Summary: Because of the large amount of bureaucracy they are not perfect days at sea for relaxing, but if you want discover a new destination, this is a good opportunity.Dining: (Il ciliegio)very good food, devoted service (We prefer it less invasive and impersonal, though); lunch (lighthouse) was OK, with some dishes that you can't find at the marketplace buffet and breakfast (lighthouse), expendable Activities; We liked some dome shows (5'), particullary "vaults of the world", featuring the Sistine Chapel, and attended the Arab class...."Read More

The food was beyond AWFUL - by far the worst on any cruise I’ve ever been on. There was very little choice on the menus compared to Princess cruises which we are used to. MSC need to up their game big time. The food in the MDR’s was lukewarm and just slapped on the plate. There was no attempt at presentation whatsoever. We felt like we were eating in a canteen. I woke up plastered in bed bug ...

Where do I start this was day on the ship. Reception is impersonal. No one to welcome you, no host, nothing at all. You just have to figure it out yourself. I don't feel welcome. Then our suitcases where lost. Nobody doing anything. Called and they say my apologies and they do nothing. After walking around for a long time, we found ourselves a suitcase in another room. The second suitcase with ...

What a stupendous ship - such an exciting design, with friendly and attentive staff. The facilities were excellent (especially for kids) and were kept very clean. The pools were good especially the indoor pool. How I wanted to like this ship! BUT, BUT, BUT: What a disappointment! It was not MSC's fault that only about 600 people chose to go on this cruise (out of a possible 5000+), ...

Background Information: The amount of bureaucracy involving this 7 nights cruise, 2 of them sea days, is too much. Excursions are its best point. So, if in spite of all the annoying formalities prior, while, and before you want to discover Saudi Arabia, go ahead. For a relaxing vacation, point anywhere else. Travel To Port of Embarkation: We bought the cruise with airfare (Saudia Airlines) and ...

Most Disappointing and Ripped Off Cruise Ever Been

First time on board of MSC Bellissima. Thought the itinerary was interesting therefore made the choice. Sail date was 07 March 2020, which was during coronavirus outbreak. They should have cancelled the cruise as there were many Italians and older people. But the aim of this corporation is MONEY and not the well being of people. They cancelled 2 ports of call so just circling around Dubai and ...

We are highly disappointed and feel cheated out of our money. I feel like MSC should’ve canceled the cruise due to coronavirus outbreak as we didn’t visit any ports outside of UAE. I refuse to believe that MSC did not know this ahead of time. We stayed at sea most of time and basically cruised from Abu Dhabi to Dubai. We disembarked early in Dubai as we simply could not take being on the ship ...

I thought this a good time as any to write this review, as I’m lying in bed listening to the clanking and pounding coming from above our cabin. Disappointment began departure day. They had the wrong boarding time listed on our e tkts and we could have checked in about 4 hrs earlier. Fortunately, we didn’t miss check in completely. This is a new Billion dollar ship. They should have spent a ...

We had not been with MSC before, and I must say, that we were very pleasantly surprised. Yes, we know that it is a new ship, that it is large, and would probably be crowded and noisy, but we had a very enjoyable week. There was always something to do, the staff were super friendly and helpful and efficient. They also smiled! Entertainment was good. We didn’t see all of the shows, but we ...
