Awful bling bling, but very bad communication!

MSC Meraviglia Cruise Review by MSCwegermee!

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

Passion for Norway for many years and wish to visit the Nordkapp by boat this time.

Saving instructions after embarking were not clear and communicated. The second call for that, we missed too, because we were at the swimmingpole at 9.00 hour and the call was posted at 9.40 hours. Silly!!! we found it in the evening by entering our cabin.

The ship was só crowded, that people didn't line up ordently in breakfast- en lunchroom, but walking through each other in an agressiv atmosphere.

Our cabin was só small, that the door of the cupboard couldn't get open well, collapsed on the bed next to it. The matras didn't fitt to the bed, you couldn't see the mecanic under the matras.But we hadn't booked a bed and breakfast, but an expensive cruise to Norway.

MSC???? Never again!!!

Transfers (very long waitingtimes every day) were okay, tenderboats during the cruise too, food were okay too, but everyday there were many logistic problems with so many people.

We had read a lot about this cruise before leaving our city and country (the Netherlands!), but were forgotten the amount of all passengers, our fault!

It was a village in the water, só huge and some decks só awful and decadent (tasts are different, aren't they?) with expensive shops and wealthy people, we didn't like to be confrontated with in our vacation. Oldfashioned and misplaced, from the time of the "Titanic", Dramatic, noisy Italian people every day, Germans who expect that everyone speaks German and we saw all the cliches of nationalities passing through.

Happily, Norway was beautiful. astonishing as always! MSC, go away, never again!
