A mostly positive experience on a beautiful ship - incredible value for money

This was my first MSC cruise and I have to say that the experience was quite positive and made me want to consider MSC again for future cruises. The Meraviglia is an absolutely stunning, and extremely glitzy ...

Started out great, faded a little over time

Choose this cruise for the price and to try MSC to see how they stacked against the competition. Over all I liked it and will consider them again if they are going to destinations I like. Here is a list of the ...

Treated Like Kings on the "Ship Within a Ship"

We selected this sailing date for my birthday and because of the Port of Miami’s proximity to home, just a 3-hour drive. MSC has the most beautiful ships we have sailed on. MSC Yacht Club Granted that MSC ...

Main dining, Buffet, Ocean Cay, Sadly food is the weak spot on this ship

We chose this cruise to experience MSC Ocean Cay, as well as to enjoy the many on board amenities this ship offers. The disappointing part first; The quality, preparation and often presentation of the food in the ...

Excellent value for money, no bad surprises

I read most of the reviews here *after* I booked by cruise on MSC Meraviglia. I was prepared for the worst given the horrendous experiences reported here (including the *absolutely unfathomable* lack of tissues ...

Prepared for the worse but was delighted instead

After reviewing the ships design and watching videos on the making of the Meraviglia, we were intrigued. We have sailed a number of times with Celebrity, RC, Princess, Norwegian, and Disney, but we've noticed the ...

Doing a good job!

I chose this cruise due to the cost. Very low for balcony cabins. The ship was most definitely spectacular! Impeccably clean throughout the ship. The cabin was a bit lacking in storage space, but we made it ...
