So bad we left after 2 nights
"Quick background - we are a couple who have cruised 6 times over the last 2 years. Not the most seasoned cruisers but have some experience of cruising with different lines. We decided to take the leap from mid sized..."Read More

MOODY BLUES CRUISE THE WORST!

I took this cruise because it was a rock n roll cruise. The problem was the Moody Cruise staff. They were rude and abrasive to the passengers. The head of security was seen grabbing a woman by the arm and pulling her up from a chair because he was in a rage for some reason. He should have been charged with a criminal assault' and fired! They got after a senior passenger who was moving as quickly ...

This was the worst Cruise line I've ever been on. I took my 20 year old son on it for his first cruise and was embarrassed. The ship's elevator kept breaking down. They changed our itinerary and we couldn't stop at the port that we wanted to see the most. They kept us on their tiny ship that day instead and did not provide any alternative entertainment for us. The entertainment was awful. They ...

We chose this particular cruise to visit their new private island that was advertised as opened three weeks prior to our sailing. When we were checking in, there was a notice posted that said there was an itinerary change and we would not be stopping at the island but spending the day at sea.They claimed it was due to circumstances beyond there control yet they advertised it when we booked our ...

I have over 10 years of cruising history with over 20 cruises on various line. I have seen better and lesser conditions on cruises over that time BUT The cruise that I have just taken on MSC on the Splendida on Feb 14 has been an example of the worst that I have ever experienced. PRE Cruise: Information on what visas were required inconsistent to no information. My calls to MSC were met ...

MSC - A huge disappointed - BEWARE!

We are highly disappointed and feel cheated out of our money. I feel like MSC should’ve canceled the cruise due to coronavirus outbreak as we didn’t visit any ports outside of UAE. I refuse to believe that MSC did not know this ahead of time. We stayed at sea most of time and basically cruised from Abu Dhabi to Dubai. We disembarked early in Dubai as we simply could not take being on the ship ...

I chose this cruise line because they advertise in my TV area of Texas and after a total of eight cruises Cunard and Holland American Cruises I thought I would try a different line. Booked and paid for $2,100.00 for balcony aurea all inclusive package. Did western Caribbean cruise and was not accommodated with easy access tours. Was told I am too old (age 76) and disabled to cruise the ...

This was our 4th sailing on MSC and 27th cruise overall. We are very easy going and though there has never been a perfect cruise we have enjoyed all except this one. Don't get me wrong, there were good moments on this cruise and we were sailing with some great friends so managed to enjoy ourselves regardless of the ship. The ship is beautiful, clean and most of the crew we encountered were ...

Don’t Cruise on MSC. I cruised on the Divina MSC. First and last cruise with MSC. 10 reasons why: 1. Most food was cold to barely warm in the buffet. The exception was breakfast, but scramble eggs were almost always cold. Very few items were warm. Almost nothing was hot except pizza. 2. The dinner buffet included 3 or 4 types of pasta, always cold. 3. The desserts on the buffet were 1” ...
