Sail Date: Oct 2022

We spent 15 nights on a Mediterranean Cruise aboard MSC Virtuosa in October 2022.

THE SHIP itself is gorgeous, very new, modern & palatial, there has obviously been a lot of care taken in the design & detail. It is vast, with plenty of bars, restaurants, pools, theatres etc. and a fabulous dome roof with changing images daily. There is also plenty going on everyday to keep you occupied. It is well laid out with lots of lifts and stairs. The cabin we were in (5046) was a lovely cabin, perfectly designed to make the most of the 19sq ft. The en-suite is quite spacious with lots of mirrors and cupboard/shelf space and the cabin itself has masses of storage, with a wardrobe, shelves, dressing table with drawers & a stool, sofa, side table & a comfortable bed with mattress topper. There is also plenty of room under the bed to store big suit cases.

The one thing that we did feel was a design error within the shop was the location of the casino. The only way to get to the Carousel lounge to watch shows or do the quizzes is to walk through the middle of the casino which is open 24 hours a day and allows smoking inside. This meant at best it smelled like a stale ashtray, at worst you had to breathe in second hand smoke. Sometimes this was unbearable.

Cabin Review

The cabin we were in (5046) was a lovely cabin, perfectly designed to make the most of the 19sq ft. it is an outside cabin with a large window. The en-suite is well lit & quite spacious with lots of mirrors and cupboard/shelf space, vanity sink, toilet & shower cubicle and the cabin itself has masses of storage, with a wardrobe with plenty hangers, shelves, dressing table with drawers, stool, sofa, side table & a comfortable bed with mattress topper. There is also plenty of room under the bed to store big suit cases. A combination locking safe is in the wardrobe.
