Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Fantastica Balcony Stateroom
Traveled with children

We had used MSC for our 10 year anniversary in the Mediterranean and I admit that it had been perfect on all points; staff, stopovers, shows, entertainment, quality of food served in the restaurants. We were therefore delighted to re-trust this company for our 20 year anniversary for a cruise in the Caribbean.

On this cruise, the only positive points were the staff, kind, helpful and largely contributed to making this cruise bearable despite the limited means allocated to them.

It was for us, what I ended up calling 'a shopping cruise'. This was mainly access to shopping, meeting about shopping, presentation of partners from whom it is absolutely necessary to buy, from them and no one else, VIP shopping card, invitation deposited in the cabin for shopping meeting, VIP shopping card available at MSC partners, shopping stops with MSC host ... And above all, do not forget to give the name of the ship and your cabin number (it would be terrible if they missed the opportunity to make a commission on all your purchases!)

Cabin Review

Fantastica Balcony Stateroom

Very nice Cabin, we found it spacious enough, Bathroom is compact but enough we felt and well adjusted. Both cabin and bathroom were clean, though sheets were not changed, don't know if that is standard procedure

Port Reviews

Costa Maya

C'est un centre commercial en plein air destiné aux passagers des bateaux de croisière

Mais il y a une petite ville à 5 mins en taxi, Mahahual, petite village typique de pécheur réhabilité pour recevoir des touriste, bar, restaurant, beach club, marché artisanal

Ocho Rios

Nous avions déjà fais les cascades DUNN donc on s'est juste baladé en ville et profitez de la cuisine et musique jamaïcaine

Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve

Le meilleur de cette croisière, Île paradisiaque, Magique, dommage, nous devions y rester jusqu'à 23h00 mais départ prématuré à 15h00 pour raison météo, grosse déception du coup !


Bien que le check in est à 14h00, il est possible d'arriver plus tôt, nous y étions à 12h00.
