Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Cruise
"Also please indulge me here as I guess cruise critic probably isn’t the place to do this, but because I wasn't able to do this in any MSC post-cruise follow up questionnaire then in case anyone from MSC reads this, I would like to give a special shout out to: Panorama Pool Deck 16 Bar Staff — Vimal from Mauritius, Mawarini from Indonesia and I-Kadek (bar manager, also Indonesian) Main Buffet Deck 8 — Rachelle Fontanelles (always made us smile), Dominique, Rene (El Salavador), Claudio, Angel, Patrick, as well as many others from the rest of that team.The gym was also very good, with plenty of machines—although a few fitness classes, in its air-conditioned environment, wouldn’t have gone amiss… as distinct from the dancing classes/sessions being held on the main panorama deck, under the beating sun, complete with mask on; despite it being outside...."Read More

I do not recommend MSC when comparing to other big cruise lines

Just returned from a 7-night Mediterranean cruise (started from Marseille, FRANCE) - 2 adults/2 young kids Pros: - Ship is modern and well designed - Deluxe Balcony room was a positive surprise and we enjoyed the room a lot (size and shape) - Kids Waterpark was impressive. - Experience at seafood/fish specialty restaurant Ocean Cay was very good - Breakfast and lunch in main ...

Embarkation was problematic and stressful with ground staff unwilling to let us check in because of an alleged problem with a passport (the problem was non-existent and was finally cleared up by immigration but not before we'd been forced to stand to one side of the queue for 30 mins in 35°C heat). Once on board, however, all was forgiven. All the glitter and glam you'd expect from MSC. Pools and ...

Nice Ship, but Dreadful Cruise Company

We booked a cruise through Avoya Travel on the "MSC Seaside", departing Marseille on June 3rd, 2022. On our arrival in Marseille on June 1st, Avoya Travel emailed me to inform us that our cruise had been cancelled! We had to decide within a few hours whether to accept a booking on another cruise, with a different itinerary on the "MSC Seaview", departing a day later, or take a full refund. We ...

We boarded Seaview at Genoa for the 7 day Med cruise, visiting Naples, Sicily, Malta, Barcelona and Marseilles. Having previously cruised with MSC back in 2019 on Magnifica, we were keen to try them again as we had a very good experience back then, plus MSC were offering a hefty discount for NHS staff, and when I called to book, they also upgraded our drinks package. Embarkation in Genoa was ...

Worst cruise of our 50+ cruises so far!

We obviously enjoy cruising and expect high standards, this was the worst we've encountered. Positives: 1. Mostly great service apart from arrogant, poorly communicating Guest Services. 2. Really good premium beverage drinks. 3. Excellent Fusion speciality restaurant. Negatives: 1. Main dining room and buffet food was, overall, terrible. Bland, tasteless, poorly presented, ...

Family with 2 kids (10+12), Fantastica cabin category. The ship had only 50% utilization, but the buffet-restaurants were absolut full! Too many people, bad service, food was below average. Dinner was nice, food was ok, on the service-managment they could also work more! We expected much more than this for the price… Embarkation was well done organized: from arriving to arriving ...

Already at home after 2 years of cancellations and changes of ships and itineraries, finally I was able to cruise the western Mediterranean again, this time on the MSC Seaview, and finally enjoy a few days in Barcelona. It was not the ship initially planned, but I had a very good impression of the Seaview, better than I expected. It is a big ship, but full of nooks and crannies, so everyone can ...

Covid finally allowed us to take this cruise that we had booked for about a year. This is an incredibly beautiful ship. It was operating at low capacity as things were just starting to open up. We booked two yacht club rooms. The yacht club experience was awesome. We are frequent cruisers and this was our second yacht club experience. It does not disappoint. The service was incredible, the ...

This was our first cruise. We had been interested in cruising for some time and when we received a storming deal via a travel agent we had used previously, we decided to just go for it. We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, even though there were some things that could have been better. Positives included a new, modern ship, and you could tell. Particularly when comparing to others parked up in ...

We were offered this as a special deal and thought we would try MSC. This was our 14th cruise, so I'd like to think we have at least an average benchmark across 5 other cruise lines to compare to. The ship was kept clean and there were only 950 people on a 4,500 capacity ship, so it often felt completely empty. The cabins were OK, the beds were not especially comfortable, but the worst ...
