Sail Date: Jun 2022

We decided to book this cruise as we didn't fancy the stress of dealing with airports, Southampton is a couple of hours away from where we lived and we knew it would be pretty stress free to cruise from here.

We travelled down the day before as we always do to avoid any embarkation day stress, we stayed at the Moxy, which is a concept hotel, the concept being very little space and lack of amenities for a high price we felt, that being said it was very near the cruise port so a £6 Uber ride the next day and we was being dropped off outside the entrance to the Horizon terminal (MSC terminal in Southampton for this Summer) - this was completely stress free and well organised, as soon as we left the car a porter took our bags and we wandered inside expecting a large queue, MSC handled this well, we was on-board within 20 minutes and there was hardly any queue at all stages!

Once on-board you are then on deck 6 (Galleria Virtuosa) - where you are reminded of that famous TV show 'Gladiators' and forced to walk the gauntlet of promotions for dining, drinks, excursions, carousel theatre show and many more -we dodged them well and found somewhere to sit while we awaited the cabin to be ready which happened dead on 1pm, all good so far...

Port Reviews


We stayed in Getxo where the port was based, lovely beach, and a great little town if you do not want the journey into the city.
