We had never previously cruised with MSC (had always been with Royal Caribbean), but we were not disappointed. We sailed as part of the Yacht Club and after a busy, very hectic year it was exactly what we needed and wanted. Our check in couldn't have gone any smoother and we were accompanied through the entire process directly to the concierge desk on our floor. The meals the entire week were delicious and our waiter quickly came to know our culinary likes and dislikes. We ate like kings. The pool deck was relaxing, quiet, had spectacular views when we were in port and always had food available when we had the munchies. Rarely was there more than 3-4 people in the pool, in fact, many times were were all alone in the pool. We participated in 3 shore excursions organized by MSC and they were well organized and informative. Our only suggestion would be to extend the excursions a little longer as we were always back to the ship well in advance of our leaving time and it would have been great to spend a little longer in port. We ventured around the entire ship, participating the the 'white (clothes)' night, the Caribbean Party and seeing all the shows in the Broadway Theatre that were offered, they were fantastic. Cirque du Soleil was awesome and we even spent some time in the casino and had a blast. The crew was very accommodating and NEVER did we have any issue with anyone, they couldn't have been more helpful. Our disembarkation was quick and completely painless. We had an amazing vacation and would highly recommend the MSC Meravigila. We have already started recruiting friends to go back with us next time. We can't wait! Read Less

From the start of our cruise checkin to the final goodbyes, the Cruise, its Crew and all the people who enjoyed this cruise was nothing but Fabulous. We got to meet new people and made new friendships. From the first greeting to the last goodbye, the crew was friendly and professional. They made us feel welcomed in ever way. They were always courteous when assistance was required and direction was sought. The food was always fabulous and the drinks amazing. The entertainment crew was awesome and made us feel like part of their family. We were never short of dancing partners and people to chat with. They kept us entertained throughout our cruise. So Thumbs up to Entertainment Crew on a job well done, especially the South African guys and gals on that team !!! Our waiter Jethro, who was always smiling when serving us on the pool deck and eventually remembered our drinks off by heart..big hugs to him. The Gentleman who look after our cabin, was always the first to greet us in the morning with a smile, a big Thank you to him for being able to deal with a girls dressing room. The cabin was small for three ladies with 20kg suitcases each, not very much room for movement. I'm sure seeing all our undies drying in the shower daily must have been quite hillarious. The shop assistant in the MSC shop was quite rude and abrupt when dealing with me, I'm not sure if it was because i was dark skinned or not Italian/French or German. She was quite friendly to customers ahead of me and when it was my turn, she did not greet, even though i greeted her first "in Italian" as a sign of respect, she was abrupt and her facial expression was just poor. I was also disappointed that as a recently gone silver member of voyagers, i did not receive my complimentary bowl of fruit and welcome back note. I was not issued with my PIN, in fact absolutely no acknowledgement received even though i logged a call twice at the MSC Voyager help desk. Read Less

I travelled with my girlfriend since the cruise was a gift for her birthday. It was our first time in Genoa and in Malta. Embarkation was absolutely smooth and not annoying: we had the chance to meet some other passengers and to have fun altogether since we were looking forward to starting our holidays. The ship is really well designed, new and full of new high-tech equipments. Apart from one show that I did not appreciate so much, all the others entertainment activites were really great and especially we had the chance to see one show from Cirque Du Soleil. Food was incredibly good. Especially the Japanese restaurant and the Eataly corner. We did not travel with children but we noticed that both teens and kids can have so much fun onboard of this ship. I would recommend to my family and also to my friends to go onboard and have fun on this ship. Read Less

I've travelled with a group of friends to discover the new ship at the very beginning of his life. We had Fantastica Experience. The ship is really amazing!!! :) The staff is helpful and smiling and everything around was so welcoming! Our balcony cabin was a real haven of peace (in-cabin breakfast was a real luxury!) but at the same time we truly did our best to take advantage of the many facilities available. My TOP 5: - The dome in the Galleria. I could have spent entire evenings watching at this new incredible feature! Stars, planet, rooftops... a new discovery every night! - Cirque du Soleil. I'm a huge fans and I've seen many of their shows. Imagining great artists performing while the ship was sailing is outstanding! - Happy Hour at Eataly. Being with friends, we tried different appetizers... could not choose my favourite! - The Spa. I was in love the whole team... they made me feel so pampered! - The night parties. Entertainment team is very active and engaging... I think the 70s party will be an everlasting memory to me! Some guests told us they had some bad experience with the transit in port... to be honest everything run smooth for us and we could have the best of our time! Something to improve: I wish it could last more... there are neverending activities and we didn't success to do all of them!!!! Can't wait to plan my next one on Seaside!!! Read Less

We choose to be in the first trip of this amazing ship! The MSC Meraviglia is the new born in MSC Family and it really elevates the concept of cruising. We embarked in Genoa and the embarking process was quite smooth. Once onboard you arrive directly in the promenade, the crew is taking you a picture and suddenly you are overwhelmed by the WOW effect of the ship! Everything is amazing, from the promenade to the thematic restaurants, from the spa to the kids area. Do not miss the video show at the promenade! We were in an balcony cabin, the accomodation is fine for a couple, we really enjoyed the view and the possibility to relax before dinner. We went for buffet most of the time, the variety and quality of the food is so high we did not feel the need to have a formal dinner at the restaurant. BTW We had an amazing dinner at Butcher's cut (steak house) and a very nice Italian Apero in the promenade at Eataly. The entertainement is very funny and the staff is really involving people! Good job guys! We appreciated the different music areas and it was great to have the disco in the Sportplex during the night! The kids areas are marvelous, we are a young couple with no kids but we really enjoyed the way the areas have been designed. Great idea the lego selfie bench! Read Less

because was the new ship, was really packed, but we were in the Yatch Club and was a wonderful experience. The butler were offering service all the time, the place was impecable , the dinning was excellent always with the sea view, the experience was very good, I did 17 cruises, and I am an expert in cruises, and for the money that we paid, I could not ask for more. I recommend the Yatch club 100% The captain was very polite and he talked with all the passengers in the dinning area. The maitre was all the time ready to serve us, we do not need to be in an specific time for dinner, we can choose our own time, always find a table near the window. I am planning to do another cruise with the same company next year. I use to cruise with Costa, but the price are higher and the service is the same, plus they do not offer the first class service that we obtain in MSC MARAVIGLIA Read Less
