Sail Date: Mar 2020
Cabin: Yacht Club Deluxe Suite

This was my third MSC Yacht Club Cruise and my first Solo Cruise. A last minute work conflict prevented my wife from accompanying me this time. We have sailed all the major lines and have determined that the MSC Yacht is the best value and the standard for outstanding service. We have booked another Yacht Club cruise in October 2020.

Embarkation was quick and painless. On the ship in about 30 minutes, including the temperature check.

Having sailed on the Seaside several times, I found the Meraviglia a beautiful ship with some differences in the layout that some like and others don't. I myself believe that the crew makes the difference, not subtle differences in the layout. I personally like the Yacht Club layout of the Seaside better. But, when I saw my friend Justin behind the bar and Arthur, the Head Waiter, it fell like home and the comparison went out the window. They took very good care of me, which compensated for me being solo.

Cabin Review

Yacht Club Deluxe Suite

As I mentioned the Suites are laid out a little different. However, they are very open, spacious and very comfortable. There seems to be less storage space although it is plenty adequate for two people.

My butler and his assistant kept the room was spotless and fulfilled each and every request. However, he didn't anticipate my needs and follow-up, as I have grown accustom to. He wasn't on par with the other butlers we have had in the past. Not that he was a bad butler, just different.
