Terrible cruise

I chose this cruise line for the price, you get what you pay for. I've sailed quite a bit in the past and decided to try a different cruise line for a change. Getting on the ship was very fast which we loved. I found the employee's a bit stand offish like they don't know what to say to you. The main problem was the food, I go on a cruise to relax and enjoy the food. The food onboard was just not ...

This is an in-depth review of a 7 nt Carribean cruise I just took (Oct 2nd) with my wife for our 33rd Anniversary on the MSC Mereviglia. We decided to sail with MSC for the 5th time back in January 2021. Unfortunately, the CDC's COVID restrictions caused the booking to be canceled in April, so we rebooked for Nov 2nd and received a complimentary Balcony upgrade by using our cancellation credits. ...

First there was several cruise to go on, that was very reasonable, I didn’t want to travel the same islands that I have already seen 6 times. So, I decided to do the MSC even though it was more expensive but I get to see something different. I paid for me and my two granddaughters, then my daughter wanted to go. So I paid for her. Then my other daughter wanted to go, there was no other room ...

As first time cruisers, we were overwhelmed by the choices offered by various lines. After going back and forth between a few, based on both our desires and the suggestions of friends who have cruised, we landed on MSC. We chose MSC, primarily for the apparent beauty of the ships and also for the Mediterranean style of the company. Travel to Port of Embarkation: We sailed from Miami and ...

MSC excellent cruise line for small children and adults. They take the kids at good times for the adults to also enjoy the cruise along with the kids. also if you are flying in to fort Lauderdale airport and need to shuttle a family to the Miami cruise port use Jiffy Jeff shuttle service. very nice and safe shuttle vans, and reliable service for pickup and returns. not going to lie the mask ...

My wife and I are MSC cruisers. We love going on their ships. They are elegant. Service is great. Food is good. We adopted our grandchildren a few years ago and started taking them on cruises. They are 6 and 7 now when we went on the meraviglia on September 18th. This is their 2nd MSC cruise. This was the 1st seven day cruise from the whole covid thing. We only had just over 1500 passengers on ...

The MSC Meraviglia was amazing. The Covid-19 protocols made us feel safe while enjoying the ship, shows, pool and food. I can honestly say the changes are a "Reflection of the times" not of MSC. Wherever we went the crew greeted us with a smile and attention. Yes, there was social distancing and masking requirements. Regardless, we were able to disconnect from the world and regain sanity, during ...

I'm gonna bullet point this *Sheila Dimaan at guest services was awful, argued about fixing an issue rather than fixing the issue. Got so bad we wanted off the boat, boy were they quick to try to make that happen, btw the issue was fixing my room key card and the contact tracing bracelets (kind of important). Were told they couldn't help until after muster was all cleared, meanwhile we ...

My friend and I decided to take a girls trip and The MSC Meraviglia is what we decided on. I was concerned after reading reviews but I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had! The food was awesome, (yes people do try to upsell but when you tell them no, they leave. It’s that simple.) The best part of my experience was the staff. These people were amazing to me and I was treated like a ...
