MSC Meraviglia Cruise Review by muggo11
- Sail Date: October 2017
- Destination: Mediterranean
*absolutely gorgeous and easy to navigate ship that is downright lively with great shops, parties and activities
*a BUTLER in Yacht Club that met and anticipated every need. Service exemplary throughout the ship.
*all but highest end alcohol is included in Yacht Club. I kept track We had 74 drinks and two bottles of free Prosecco.
*top-notch food in YC Dining Room AND specialty restaurants, eg Anchor Pub and Butcher,s Cut. Excellent Chef’s Table in EATALY, GREAT PIZZA.
*TWO Cirque Shows, production shows fun as well EXCEPT see below
*terrific itinerary that included Messina, Naples (we visited Sorrento),Marseille, Malta and Barcelona (don’t miss the Maritime Museum).
*Wish they had told us about the planned transportation strike in Genoa when we disembarked. Cost us over $200 to get to Milan.
*godawful on-board computer and television system—their website is poor as well. No reason it should be so poorly designed.
*Poor meal at Cirque Show dinner—not up to high standards in YC. Mushy fish, overcooked vegetables at a meal we paid extra for. Would opt for cocktail show in future) seats are better at cocktail show as well.
*hands down MAGIC FRIENDS is the lamest magic show in the history of the universe.
*very limited storage in interior cabin, tiny closet
*small casino with impossibly slow bar service

BarcelonaThere the day they declared independence from Spain. Of course, wandered La Ramblas but surprise was the Maritime Museum with a life-sized galleon. Well worth a visit.View All 2,123 Barcelona Cruise Port Reviews
