Our First Cruise Ever, and Probably our Last

Review for MSC Splendida to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Today we’re on a cruise for the first time, but this is been such a poor experience I wonder why people do it at all. We were excited and read everything from the cruise company, many reviews and watched videos from cruisenews, Emma, and Gary. Before this, I was thinking hey - we can cruise to the Arctic circle or go transatlantic instead of flying, but now I’d really have to think. What sort of ...

We were lucky enough to have our bid excepted for an inside on yacht club which was our first time experiencing the ‘ship within a ship’ on MSC. We did not queue once the entire stay! Boarding was easy and simple. Before we went we weren’t sure about having a butler or pool attendant ready with towels when we appeared on the sun deck but we soon warmed to it. Everyone was professional and was ...

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

To Whom it May Concern: On July 3rd my family and I embarked on a MSC Seaview of the Baltic departing from Kiel, Germany. This was our second cruise with MSC. The critical aspects of the cruise to include much of the staff, condition of the boat, and ports of call were all positive. Nonetheless, I do not plan to sail with MSC again in the future due to the management-level interactions I ...

After a few cruises on newer and larger Msc ships, I was disappointed that the quality of the Yacht Club declines, and that this great product moves more and more towards mass market. Therefore I was looking forward to the cruise on the “old reliable” Msc Splendida. From the very first day I was very positively surprised. EMBARKATION We embarked in Trieste, which is a new homeport for Msc. ...

Check in Liverpool We arrived at 10:30 for an 11:00 check in at the Liverpool exhibition centre , Lots of documents needed and verified for my party of 10 before we received our lateral flow test then coached to the cruise terminal and boarded the beautiful MSC Virtuosa. We were welcomed aboard and directed towards the lifts to find our cabins. We had an inside cabin, spacious yet ...

If you’re lucky enough or can afford to, you have to experience the luxury and attention that yacht club is onboard MSC Virtuosa, the service and attention from all staff inside the yacht club is beyond amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Reynaldo the pool attendant is amazing, he’s so attentive and all you have to do is move and he’s beside you helping to adjust the lounger, offering drinks, ...

Review for MSC Virtuosa to Europe - British Isles & Western

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Once MSC announced that their flagship Virtuosa was going to have her inaugural season in U.K. waters, making several sailings around the country for British residents, we wanted to sail on her. Even more attractive to us was that Virtuosa would be departing from Liverpool for selected sailings. For us this was a great opportunity to just travel for about an hour, driving 35 miles from home ...

Embarkation in Liverpool was easy dropped off at ACC Liverpool & being in buffet within an hour. I have no idea what SW53 is on about noise, I was also on deck 13 cabin 13237 didn't hear any noise at all, in fact there is another deck of cabins above, so to hear any noise from deck 15 they must have hearing like superman, we also did not have any problems finding a seat in any of the locations or ...

A truly magnificent ship, but it still has a few problems and what will it be like with 6,000+ passengers onboard??

We usually cruise 4 or 5 times a year, so we were desparate to get cruising again, then in May 2021 we saw on TV the new ship MSC Virtuosa arriving in Southampton. We googled the ship and liked what we saw, so we decided to give it a try, as we have never been with MSC before. We normally reserve a butler suite, but the Virtuosa only offers butlers in their Yacht Club suites, which are quite ...

Virtuosa is an amazing ship. It's not just the fun gimmicks like the robot bartender or the design your own chocolate bar, but she's designed with great viewing spaces to sit and watch the sea. The galleria is a beautiful inside shopping precinct with the shops and restaurants along it and the dome which plays 3 minute shows was absolutely incredible - people started spontaneously applauding after ...
