  3. MSC Seaside
Newer Ship caught my eye as well as price and itinerary. The bathroom is quite small and you can not sit on the toilet without your knee hitting the sink. The shower stall is hard to stand in if you're a little large. My GF baggage was a little delayed eventhough we put our items together on the check in area. The dining room food was average at best and we ate most of our meals in the fee paying restaurants. I recommend the Surf and Turf roll in the asian market...delish. The on board shows were very nice and there were plenty of seating in the theatre. The ports were very nice but I do not recommend the Quad tour in St Martin unless you request a single rider vehicle. We books on the MSC website and it specifically says single rider and we were forced to take a double. Of course the business said blame MSC and MSC says blame the business. The Casino is below par...NO CRAP TABLES OR CASH POKER (only Beat the dealer poker) I would go on the ship again but at a better and lower price. 3 stars at best

not a bad cruise for what its worth

Cabin Review

Fantastica Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B2 14143
Cabin was spacious, however they should have sacrificed some cabin space for the bathroom toilet and shower. If you are tall (i am 6'3") you can never sit on the toilet without having your knee hit the sink....and god forbid you are overweight by a lot you will never fit in the shower. Other than that there is plenty of closet space and the balcony is very nice

    Tour was very short...more city driving than anything, id rather do the trails then drive in the street. Took us to Maho beach (where the planes fly right over your head) nice beach, packed with tourists...bring cash $1.00 to use the bathroom here. ship sold the excursion as a single rider and we were forced to ride double which the business said blame MSC and MSC said blame the business
