MSC Meraviglia Cruise Review by joetl

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

I will avoid this line for ALL future cruises. The ship is beautiful and impressive but just too big. They nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING. And everything is expensive! Small bottle of water $2, drinks $7-8, shops at triple land value prices even while at sea. Shows are slightly above high school performances. Food was pretty good except at the "Market Place" buffet where the lines are l o n g. Rooms were OK, Maid service good, The main corridor is beautiful with a light show often throughout the day. The shops are sometimes opened while at sea and extremely over priced ( you are captive and they know it). I would check into the air exchangers - 85% of the passengers were sick and coughing. "At Sea" days were boring since the waterparks were closed - very cold in the North Atlantic. I will avoid MSC if this is their definition of luxury at sea.
