A mostly positive experience on a beautiful ship - incredible value for money
"I had breakfast in the main dining room most days and was seated and served quickly and the breakfast items were very good.One strange little quirk is that if you ask for a decaf with your dessert in the main dining room, you are served a cup of hot water with an envelope of instant decaf...."Read More

We are a couple in our 70’s and have cruised many times but never on MSC. We didn’t go expecting too much but were very pleasantly surprised. The ship was only about 1/3rd full and the service was excellent. The staff was terrific. The shows were very good. The ship was beautiful. We had an ocean view balcony cabin off the rear of the ship. It was a long walk to the elevators so I do not ...

We were super excited for our dream vacation. We upgraded our cruise for what we thought was going to be the ultimate experience which included drink packages, spa treatment, spa essentials in our suite, whirlpool tub on the balcony, priority boarding and dining experiences, private areas of the ship and use of the spa. I even called customer service twice to confirm what was included in the ...

Nice Ship for COVID family cruise

I want to write this because I rely on reviews myself. This is our 2nd MSC cruise, we chose it because the ship is a newer/larger vessel with pricing that was amazing for a family of four since kids are deeply discounted or free (pay taxes) on MSC. There were multiple other family members, ranging from grandmothers to kids ranging from ages 3 to 9. We booked late Spring when COVID vaccines ...

Terrible cruise

I chose this cruise line for the price, you get what you pay for. I've sailed quite a bit in the past and decided to try a different cruise line for a change. Getting on the ship was very fast which we loved. I found the employee's a bit stand offish like they don't know what to say to you. The main problem was the food, I go on a cruise to relax and enjoy the food. The food onboard was just not ...

While I hope to eventually cruise on all of the cruise lines, it was their enticing loyalty "status match" that enticed us to try MSC next. They placed us in their highest, "Diamond Level", based on our status in other cruise lines. We chose the Meraviglia for our first cruise from Miami. We were very satisfied with their health and safety protocols, and found the boarding and on board ...

MSC Yacht Club is a game changer!

This is my second MSC Yacht Club cruise on the Meraviglia. From a special embarkation area through your Butler walking you off the ship- The MSC Yacht Club is worth every penny spent! The YC is a ship within a ship. You have your own Butler and assistant Butler who literally take you anywhere on the ship. In port, they take you personally off the ship and to your excursion or hail a taxi. ...

Communications is a big issue - lack thereof!

MSC needs work on communication We sailed the MSC Meraviglia October 16 sailing. Beautiful ship, clean with a friendly staff. That makes a good first impression but it doesn’t take long for that to be questioned. As we proceeded up the gangway to the ship the very first thing they did was “chip” us like a pet! MSC does use an electronic bracelet to replace the ship card which is handy and it ...

The butler escorted on the ship and in the Top Sail Lounge. Butlers ...

I'm sorry if my review seems a little harsh but I'm only going to tell you the things that really stood out as not pleasant. Note, I've been on over 15 cruises to date. FOOD: I was horrified that my assigned sit down dining room has $ upgrades for what may be considered "better" entrees. I was really saddened that the only beef that was on the standard menu was always served in gravy type ...
