Chaotic but enjoyable

I don't normally post reviews but in the case of MSC I found other people's opinions useful so thought I'd add my brief thoughts on MSC Fantasia. We booked mainly because of an attractive itinerary that included ...

For a trans Atlantic cruise, this itinerary had great ports of call. Started in Barcelona, a great city in itself, and then 6 more ports of call, before we started on our crossing. We then had another 2 ports of ...

TransAtlantic

Great entertainment but lousy food

We've never been on a transatlantic cruise or to Barcelona, so when we saw this cruise at a good price, we couldn't resist. We spent several days in Barcelona - a great city - before getting on the ship. I've ...

Disappointing design choices by NCL in their newest fleet addition

Overall NCL Encore seems like a downgrade from it's Breakaway Plus class sisters/predecessors. NCL has removed some outside public deck space in favor of an expanded Vibe Beach Club (requires purchase of a pass, ...

Disappointing - cabin size, ubiquitous PEANUTS, smoking in casino.

We chose this cruise as a ticket home, in a more interesting way than a plane ride, after sailing around the Mediterranean on a Norwegian ship (Spirit). The NS is ostensibly a beautiful ship with a musical theme. ...
