MSC Meraviglia Cruise Review by cshepard1965

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Bella Inside Stateroom

MSC was by far most reasonable price point. Meraviglia was a best value. Beautiful, Swarovski Crystal-laden vessel. Less than 2 years old with the latest technology on board-MSC For Me, and access to Cirque Show, sailing the MSC Meraviglia to the Fjords was the right move.

Ship large enough to handle all on board without problem. However, as with any large vessel, guests must be smart about how to get from point a to b. Also, when getting on and off the ship, advanced planning is required.

Service on ship could not have been better. From guest services to restaurant staff, to disabled assistance, all areas were well handled by crew. In particular, wait staff was so friendly and well coordinated. Also, ship was spotless with all workers doing utmost to keep the vessel sparkly and shiny.

Specifically, theatre shows and food could not have been of better quality or variety.

Overall, IF guests watch their alcohol consumption and ship specific excursion purchases, one can really gain tremendous value without giving up anything in choosing MSC and the Meraviglia to sail on their next journey. Bon voyage!(

Floatable automatic pontoon dock extended to ship's porthole making ez off and on. Port town itself not much but does have free WiFi at TI.

Geirangerbybus tour good value at half ship's excursion cost for same tour stops.

Flam is a cute little fjord endpoint with enough shops and a small railroad museum to keep one busy for a couple of hours. Also, free WiFi is available at TI.
