The 'Flu' Cruise, but there is more

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 ...

The Very Good and the Very Bad of MSC Meraviglia

We are seniors who have sailed 25+ times on 7 different mass market cruise lines. We always sail in inside or OV cabins as we don't see value in spending our money on where we sleep. We had sailed on the MSC ...

Great ship - Poor service before and during

This is a very pretty ship but I am afraid that didn;t make up for the bad service. We were a girlie group (3 sisters and my daughter) holding a reunion to celebrate two birthdays. Two of us came from UK to meet ...
