  3. MSC Meraviglia
Never MSC for me... They should name the next ship MSC upsell. On the Meraviglia upselling is going on from when you wake up until you gouing to sleep again. I'll booked the orient spa. 120€ for 60 min massage, i'll booked 2. Even while doing the massage the lady tryed to sell 4 extra massages, cremes etc. The news leaflet you find on the bed is becoming a comervial magazine trying to sell (again) Lotto tickets, bingo, restaurant packages. champagne by he bottle, pictures, camara's, parfum, beauty treatments.. etc. When you open the tv = the same. Walking under the dome .. again. In the sauna everyone is whering fabric, from short to underpants.. dont get it? The food standards whent absolutely down in the last years. We had a exclusive drink package. Again a lot of drinks, not included. What is 'exclusive' standing for then? Staff was smoking in corridor upeside the staterroom. Excursions realy overprised. You find the same for the half of the price once ashore. Interaiment is very Italian. Italian singers try yo sing English songs. 7 seadays, why not showing a movie in the theater in the afternoon, oh true you can do in your room 7€ / film. For serval years I do cruises, i'm always happy to pay the service charge. This year I asked serval staff members what they get from that. Absolutely NOTHING! So I went to the information desk and ask to take away the service fee. The lady did understand my complaints and said I better choose the smaller ships from MSC. They have the same amount off staff on the Meraviglia as par example the Divina, only 1500 guest more. So i dicide to tipp them directly. Pitty because you can only tip the employee's you see. The led screen cealing is a expensive gimmick. If you have a good lookaround on the ship you see that a lot is done with cheap materials. MSC is hunting for mass tourism and that you see. No sign of a cruise director. That been said, staff is workkng hard 15 days without one free day. €1050 / month for a bar tender. Most off the staff is exosted. The destination to Spitsbergen where Meraviglia but MSC lost his smile.

Msc is losing his smile
