Worst Cruise Experience of all time

Review for MSC World Europa to Middle East

Me and my friends rented a suite for 3 nights with MSC in Doha for the world cup. We all have been to cruises multiple times with Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean just to let you know we understand what we should expect. MSC advertised as a cruise like experience bit we are not sailing. So we thought it is very good idea to a luxury relaxing experience for our last three days. We booked a ...

This was our first cruise with MSC and our first cruise for 4 years. It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted a nice getaway. Check in was straightforward. I was surprised they never took our credit card. We have always done this at check in on previous cruises. They told us to do on the ship. We decided we would do the 3 speciality restaurant package. We chose, Butchers Cut, Halo ...

As bad as the first time

We cruised MSC, actually on Magnifica, 3 years ago, and were not impressed. THe itinerary for this ship was interesting and fit our tight schedule, so I reluctantly tried it again. I won't be fooled a third time. MSC is a budget line. That's fine. But the food was inedible. While our servers were very good, the food routinely came out cold. Sometimes it was cold food on a hot plate (how is ...

Myself and my husband have been cruising for 20 years this has been the worst one yet!! We seen the deal on an email and thought we would give it a go being a new ship, how wrong were we. As soon as you get on the ship the staff try and sell you the drink package and specialty restaurants- these are all very costly so do your research, the drinks are quite expensive if you purchase from the ...

I am a regular cruiser with RCI & PO. This is my first and last time with MSC. This can't be classed as a cruise. Its just a awfully run ferry. Cons - No soul -Same food every night in the buffet -Staff have CANT do attitude -Safety doesn't seem Important to MSC. (Seen with my own eyes) -Don't accept complaints at reception. - Doesn't feel like a cruise. Just a transport ...

Excellent value for money

We just returned from a Thanksgiving cruise on Meraviglia. Overall, we had an excellent experience at an unbeatable price for two aft balconies. As far as dining, we especially enjoyed the meals in the main dining room, smoothies for breakfast in the marketplace buffet, the pizza, and the variety of ethnic options that changed every day. The cheesecake at dinner was consistently the best ...

I’m not sure where to start but for I guess I’ll start with boarding. This was only my third cruise ever and first with MSC I’m 26 so this is my experience. It took us about 3 hours to get on the ship I can with a group of 15 and we paid in advance for an MSC shuttle to pick us up from the Air bnb , we chose the earliest time (7am) and when we arrived they told us they won’t let anyone into the ...

I thought it might be informative for new MSC customers to hear about this vessel and compare it to brands American's are more accustomed to. We booked this cruise as the finale of a month-long Italian trip to bring us home to our apartment (not far from the cruise terminal). We have crossed the Atlantic in this manner 3 or 4 times with Norwegian from the same port, Civitavecchia We like ...

Grand larceny. Horrible customer service

Review for MSC Divina to Caribbean - Western

We chose this cruise because we sailed with MSC previously and had a great experience. However, this was as the pandemic started and the cruise ship was half full. This time was a completely different experience. The cruise was fully booked so we were able to see what the true MSC experience really was. At our first port, we got money from our safe and exited the ship. We left our jewelry and ...

Typical Mainline Cruise

We had a nice time. The ship is a modern aesthetic. Very pretty and clean. We were happy with the food and our cabin. It is a big ship so we walked a lot. The loungers are taken down early and the pools close earlier than other lines.There’s a great aft pool area. Service was good except for bar service. That was my biggest disappointment. It is not MSC’s fault we couldn’t make the island ...
