A Cruise Ship Overwhelmed By The Passengers

Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Long queues repeatedly, starting with 3 1/2 hours to board standing without food or water. Then queues for restaurants, queues for customer services, queues for drinks, queues in the arcade, queues in the water park. Queues in the bars. Not short queues. Long queues. A large and obvious lack of staff who at times were obviously overwhelmed but did battle on. You could try and order breakfast ...

We chose this cruise as this is a new ship and we like to experience new vessels. Well where do I start ,got to southampton ,it then took 3 1/2 hours to board the ship,yes really 3 1/2 hours. Eventually got to the cabin ,guess what NO luggage,several phone calls later before cases found. Now missed dinner slot ,had to wait for second sitting hours since we had eaten,would add no tea ...

It started with over a 3 hour queue to get on. Unfortunately we hadn't eaten and didn't think it would be necessary to bring food supplies. We got on just as they had shut the food outlets and our dinner slot was for 9:30 in the evening. Luckily we managed to book a speciality restaurant, Indochine which was lovely. There's a narrow window for the one breakfast restaurant and the market ...

Yacht Club during COVID

This was our 5th MSC cruise and 3rd in Yacht Club (we have taken 30+ cruises from Carnival to Regent and a suite on the QE2). The prior 4 were out of Miami therefore we are not sure which differences were COVID-related and which relate to the different ship or location. Booking this cruise was a "roll of the dice" after three prior cancellations. We were not sure that it would actually take place ...

There is nothing that can compare to spending time with friends. Everything else is icing on the cake. We spent three days in Athens and seven nights on the Apex with longtime friends. On this adventure, however, the icing on the cake was delicious. For us at least, The ship and service were unmatched compared to all previous cruises. Traveling with only 900 guests on a ship that normally ...

More style than substance on MSC Virtuosa

Chose this cruise due to Covid situation to avoid possible isolation on return home. Told by MSC to arrive for 11am and it took an hour and a half to get on board - appreciate that we had to have Covid tests, but the delay was partly due to the regular passengers being left outside while the Yacht Club passengers boarded. Not a great start. Virtuosa is a very beautiful ship with sparkly staircases ...

Beautiful ship but ultimately disappointing

Virtuosa is a very beautiful ship so it is a shame the cruise was not the experience we had hoped for. Embarkation was crazy. Before even having a Covid test we were in numerous queues (at least 4) to show different documents. If you were positive you may well have passed it on to several people before even getting on the ship. Why not take a test and return to your car until the result and then ...

First the positives. Friendly, helpful staff. Great entertainment, especially Craig stewart in Brodie’s. A lovely boat as you would expect fro a brand new boat. Food delicious in all areas. Our favour as Sindhu, excellent value. Negatives. Very small cabins only 14 inches between Wardrobe and bed. Restaurant booking. THere is no freedom dining it Is all booked using the The P and O app, ...

What a disaster ! the drinks beverage service was shambolic across the ship including the restaurants and an absolute joke. expect to wait 35-50 minutes for a drink. Staff had no clue what they were doing coupled with totally ineffective MNGT/officers who when you complained nodded there heads and gave you lip service. Nothing to do with Covid just rank poor service, If the shop had stopped at a ...

Is MSC the worst cruise line?

I don't know whether it's the worst but it sure is among the ones I travelled on.To me good and imaginative food is important and the food on MSC is pathetic.In the buffet pasta and pizza everywhere.No ethnic food, no smoked salmon or pates, no decent selection of cheese.Its more like a factory canteen .The cherry on the cake is treating ice cream as if its an expensive delicacy and non existing ...
