Five stars for this cruise! Was it perfect? No.... But, I am comparing it with a crossing from Santos to Hamburg with the same ship 2 years ago and the MSC Magnifica has definitely improved. Besides that, once you get used to the imperfections of MSC cruises, or what you think are imperfections comparing to other cruise lines, you do not focus anymore on those issues. At least I do not anymore.
A little background about us: we are experienced cruisers, who have travelled with several cruise lines such as Celebrity Cruises, Crystal, Azamara, Oceania, Royal Caribbean and Silversea. This was my fifth cruise with MSC Cruises.
What was so good at the MSC Magnifica that deserved five stars? According to our opinion, the officers and crew members did a very good job making us feel at home during the whole crossing. It is impossible to mention by name all of them, but I would like to refer specially to four people who have contributed to making this crossing an excellent one.
