"This was the 1st time I've seen a cruise ship offer full streaming internet service, but my gosh....They have to work through some obvious kinks, but We'll continue to sail with MSC and we're confident that as they come back into full service, they'll find their sea legs...."Read More

My Experience on MSC Meraviglia's Bahamas Cruise

I recently took a cruise to the Bahamas from Orlando on the MSC Meraviglia and I have to say, it was a truly amazing experience. One of the highlights of the trip was the lovely Teppanyaki dinner we had onboard. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was just perfect for a special evening. Another highlight of the trip was the fun time we spent at night on the beach. The lighthouse show was ...

This was my first time sailing with MSC, and I'd definitely say it was a good cruise. If you're looking for a budget-friendly cruise to someplace warm, without any huge expectations, I think this would be a perfectly fine fit. That said, there were some areas where there could be some improvement, and where the ship didn't entirely shine. Here's a recap of what I loved, and what I think could use ...

First, a little about me. I've cruised many times on many ships at all difference price points. This was my third MSC sailing. Overall, I'd say this was an above average experience on a mass market cruise line. Definitely budget friendly, but be aware that at time of purchase you'll have a few decisions to make regarding your "experience". For example, one of the experiences offers the ...

It's a bit of a party ship and I'm not mad at that! The ship still looks brand new. It's the cleanest cruise ship we have sailed on. Immaculate and well cared for. The beds in the cabins are a bid hard, but I got some good sleep while on board. There are more activities on this ship, than one could ever get to. We missed the shows entirely as the live music ( and DJ's) around the ship were ...

Beautiful Ship, Exceptional crew and staff, lousy support and administration by MSC

Isn't it a shame that a ship this beautiful, with a staff that is clearly dedicated to excellence, is forced to operate under circumstances that reflect so poorly and unfairly on them? Our embarkation went smoothly with a 14:30 appointment but reports I heard from earlier passengers was that it was a madhouse for them. MSC seems to be the Southwest Airlines of the cruise industry when it comes to ...

The activities on the cruise provided a variety - there was a theater show you could attend, a white party one night, a beach party, and the lighthouse show on their private island in Ocean Cay which was fun, and several bars on board you could choose from. The restaurants was alright - the steakhouse was my favorite, followed by the Hibachi style restaurant but requires a reservation. The ...

Short but very sweet onboard the MSC Meraviglia!

The MSC Meraviglia is creates a grand impression as you board into the main promenade of Deck 6 - with a giant LED screen running down the length of the common areas. I found orientating myself on this ship took a little longer than usual with two main elevator/stair banks, however generally speaking I did not find myself waiting too long for the elevators, and extra stairs in the main areas ...

Good ship for a quick getaway; some issues for mobility impaired passengers

I am an experienced cruiser (on multiple lines including all mainstream lines), and sailed on this cruise as part of a group sailing. I was pleasantly surprised by the ship. She is very clean, and service is good to great throughout. Boarding seemed to be slow for most passengers, with very long lines, which is somewhat inexplicable given how long the ship has been sailing from Port Canaveral. ...

Excellent in every way except food and dining.

It was an ideal four-day getaway on a beautiful ship, marred by the dining experience (food, preparation, and presentation). To give you some examples, food at the Marketplace buffet was left to sit for long periods and lost its warmth, flavor, and its attractiveness (and was not changed until almost entirely consumed). Further, food in the dining room (breakfast and dinner) should arrive at the ...
