Hi:) I m a cruise lover :) and MSC mostly. So, let s start with the beginning. MIAMI - try to arrive at lest 1 day before the cruise. Use UBER for transfers . It s cheap and worth it. Book your shows. Try pizza. Try Gelato. Go on each Port. Drink :) Explore Embarkation : print in advace your labels for the luggage. If you are not ayacht club member ( in this case you can embark whenever you want ), as a regular passenger you can embark starting 11.30- 12:00. No matter what they write on your papers. BUT, no later than 17:00. Disembarkation: you ll receive the instructions 1 night before and you ll know what you have to do If you prebook MSC excursions from MSC portal and receive email confirmation from MCS, print them and take them with you. Sometimes their system is not syncrhronised. when on the ship 3 important things: book / confirm your excursions ( you can modify/ cancel 48 h in advance w/o any costs, register your credit card, buy your social app internet. Ship is huge and amazing. Clean, Full of Life, full of shows. Regular cabins are so and so. Pay attetion to your steward if he doesn t take care of your cabin. Dining : same menu in Ipanema and Seashore. I bought my excursion through MSC. Althgough they have local offers in the port. In Costa Maya i tryed swim with dophins. Quite an experience. Try it. On your disenbarkation day book a Miami tour with drop off at the airport .

Time of my life :)
