  3. MSC Seaside
We chose this cruise mainly because of the interesting ports of call and the ship itself. We had sailed with MSC before, on the Divina, which we found to be so we decided to go back and to try the Yacht Club and booked an interior Yacht Club suite, The whole experience in the Yacht Club was extremely good. Embarkation: we dropped of our bags at a special “Yacht Club” drop off point and were promptly guided to security (priority access); afterwards we were guided to a lounge and had do the formalities (check-in, cruise cards) and were offered some snacks and champagne. Once you were ready, you could board the ship whenever you wished. All in all, we were on the ship in less than 30 minutes and had a drink and some snacks - great start! Interior Suite: our stateroom was lovely, spacious, enough storage, good linen and towels - good bathroom was the MSC shampoo & body wash. However our room had no windows, no balcony it felt lovely and cozy. A welcome bottle of Prosecco was waiting in our room upon arrival. Nightly turndown was provided. Yacht club : we were blown away by the service provided by all YC Team Members - nothing was too much trouble. The private Yacht Club only spaces (pool, restaurant, hot tub, top sail lounge) are well decorated, luxurious, never overcrowded and always accessible. You have a separate concierge desk for all requests, so no need to go out of the YC if not wished. The Yacht Club Grill is lovely, and serves great food next to the pool. Top Sail Lounge is very relaxing with live music every evening. The restaurant serves a very fine cuisine and has good portions. Entertainment: lovely shows (including the famous Michael Jackson show), live music is never far away. I have tried the zipline and it was great! Pools and slides were cool. Hot tubs were perfect - not too hot. Overall experience : amazing experience with attention to detail. We would definitely do this again.

Simply an amazing cruise!
