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 ...

Another outstanding week in the Yacht Club

This was my third MSC Yacht Club Cruise and my first Solo Cruise. A last minute work conflict prevented my wife from accompanying me this time. We have sailed all the major lines and have determined that the MSC Yacht is the best value and the standard for outstanding service. We have booked another Yacht Club cruise in October 2020. Embarkation was quick and painless. On the ship in about 30 ...

I'm an avid cruiser being on at least 40 Cruise's since 1983. Having cruised on RCCL (diamond member), Princess, Carnival, NCL, HAL, Celebrity, Red Boat, Admiral I have a reasonable idea what makes for a good cruise. I booked an inside cabin and pre purchased the Thermal Spa pass in place of a balcony. This usually works out great on NCL and Holland since they have great spas with large window ...

We choose this cruise because of the beautiful ship, price and itinerary. Embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth. We were able to board the ship at the time of our scheduled arrival. The disembarkation was amazing. We could stay in our rooms until 8:00am and then had access to a full buffet breakfast. We could also go anywhere on the ship until it was time to get off. The ship was ...

Our background: My Husband and I are in our mid 60’s and have enjoyed approx 35 cruises on various lines: Carnival, Princess, RCL, Celebrity, MSC, NCL. Majority of our cruises have been in the Caribbean & Mexico. We chose the MSC Meraviglia because she is a pretty new ship & we have enjoyed our time on the MSC Divina & Seaside. We wanted to go back to Roatan, one of my favorite ports and our ...

This was our first time sailing MSC, and while I want to give a detailed and honest review of our cruise; keep in mind our cruise was the one that made the news when both Jamaica and Grand Caymans would not let us disembark for fear of flu as such I will not be able to provide any information on how shore excursion or disembarkation worked (except to say Many Thanks to Cozumel for letting us off ...

We like MSC, wanted to try the new ship and was not disappointed (except for cancelling Ocean Cay but can't do anything about the weather). In spite of some reviews, the crew is friendly and accomodating, there is toilet paper, tissues, and washcloths, food is as good or better than most cruise lines, the buffet has a lot of variety. It's a personal thing, but wish that MSC did not stray from ...

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 ...

This was our 15th cruise. First time with MSC. Won't be the last. There were good and back things. But overall a wonderful time and great value! Pros: Staff were all wonderful. The welcome back parties at the ports were very nice extra. Our servers in Waves, Martin and Hasel were attentive and gave great service. The ship was absolutely stunning. Loved the Swarovski crystal staircase. ...
