Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

This was my second cruise with MSC (first one was in August 2014 on Fantasia).

We travelled with 2 kids (aged 4 and 2) and I missed having a specific pool were families with small children could stay (with deck chairs, bar, etc). The small covered kid's pool in most of the time in the shadow and the water is cold.

The opening times of the kids' club for children under 3 is really scarce. The food, on the contrary, was varied and healthy.

Service in general terms was much better on my first experience with MSC; this time I have not felt that cruise members were so helpful, gentle and implicated (staff at kid's club, cabin, waiters, etc).

The night entertainment can be improved (in particular the Theater spectacles). The itinerary too (many of the destination were not really worth visiting).

The cabin, the common areas and the food are really good. The main hall really impressive.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B2 8229

Clean and spacious. It really makes a difference in terms of space choosing a balcony room rather than an oceanview one.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Very nice. No need of an organized tour. A couple of touristic trains departing from the port make different tours and take you to the basilica on top on the mountain.


We went to Sante Margherita and visited Genova with an organized tour (not MSC`s)

Nice, but nothing really worth visiting. Feasible on your own.

Palermo (Sicily)

Nice walking tour but in a couple of hours you're done.


We used again an organized tour (this time I would recommend it if you want to visit the town) but does not have much to visit.
