Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

This was our 3rd cruise with MSC. In the past this was not a cruise line we would have sailed with but when cruising resumed in 2021 this line embarked passengers in Greenock so we took the opportunity to sail on Virtuosa. Truthfully, last year we were not impressed not the fault of MSC more the passenger demographic however it wasn't a typical cruise so we decided to give MSC another chance and ...

We chose this cruise as it fitted in with our commitments and we had had a good cruise on virtuosa to the canaries at the beginning of may. the package provided good value for money as we had premium drinks and a balcony cabin. we had no problems with the food, drinks or service and the staff were really good. however the entertainment leaves something to be desired. the theatre shows were ...

This is the 2nd time i have sailed on this ship and i have also taken several cruises with MSC in the past. My expectations of MSC are quite low however, this time for the price it wasn't too bad and there did seem to be a few improvments. Normally i find with MSC that the food is pretty average, im not a fan of the set dining experience and normally with MSC non of the staff ever seem to know ...

A Beautiful Classic Ship

My wife and I have been on cruises with all the major lines. This cruise was magical. First --hats off to Cunard for even adding this itinerary--chasing the Northern Lights in Norway was a gamble. It was spectacular --and we had two ports cancelled as a result of storms. This ship is not a "rust bucket"--it is a beautiful and understated ship with great common areas; great staff; the best ...

Just disembarked following a 7 night northern Europe cruise with my family, So lets get the first point out the way which is value of the cruise. This was £600 each including 2 x balcony cabins, easy plus drinks package and wifi. This really is exceptional value and so I did expect a few things not to be up to scratch at this price point, but thankfully there were very few compromises. I ...

Utter Shambles

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

A poorly designed ship with no areas for adults with no children to relax. The ship is clearly built as a ‘holiday factory’ and the experience was more like Butlins or Benidorm rather than a normal cruise. MSC cram their ships full of families with no consideration for couples or families without kids. Food on board isn’t great and prepare yourself for mediocre, even in the speciality restaurants. ...

Good enough - Just!

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Cruise and the service provided I would rate just about good enough, though there is absolutely no margin. Brittania Club worth the extra money. Great setting, relaxed and not rushed. Plenty of choice. Entertainment was adequate. Repeated mediocre singer and decayed comedian again budget affected. Singing group were very good. Plenty of room in well-appointed auditorium. Ample room on ...

Open dining? No thanks.

Despite paying the Cunard Fare and having second sitting dining confirmed, we were forced into open dining. Maitre’d was unable to assist and seemed very stressed. Overheard many comments of a similar nature. There are not enough staff on board to provide proper service. The staff who are on board are run off their feet and look miserable. Waits of 30 minutes in the Commodore Club. Queues ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

We went on a Northern Europe cruise for 7 nights; this is by far the biggest P&O ship and as it was half term a busy sailing. I travel on both big and small ships, and like both for different reasons. For the size of the ship, I expected more activates like the larger Royal Carribean ships however I did not use most of the facilities or activities on board as they simply did not appeal to me. Many ...

We are experienced cruisers and haven’t sailed on an MSC ship since Feb 2013. We are a family of 4 travelling with 2 children under 3. Ship: The ship, as many have said, is beautiful. You see something new every time you look. There were a lot of families on board and we were thankful that out of the 7 days on board only one was a total wash out. There simply isn’t enough space ...
