My husband and I have been on about 22 cruises. We always look forward to each and every cruise. We understand the highs and lows of the various cruise lines. But the MSC Meraviglia had to be the worst! It started at embarkation in NY. We were going on a 10 nt round trip cruise to Canada in October, 2019. We were on line for 3 hours! Some were on line 4 or 5!!! No food. No drink. Nowhere to sit. Some older people even collapsed inside. There was barely any staff from MSC to be found.

The oceanview cabin, which we usually take, was barely larger than a shoebox! There was not even a chair or small couch in the room, which was depicted in a photo online of this type of accommodation. The night tables were no more than 8" across! There were 2 drawers 12" across, and 3 cubbies, for your clothes, and a closet.

The ship was attractive, but never enough seating in areas that had music. Actually, there was good music aboard---a Brazilian trio, a jazz duo, a couple of opera singers, who were rather good.
