One of the better cruises that I have been on

I chose this cruise because it had an itinerary that appealed to me.I have been on at least 15 cruises and I can honestly say that this particular cruise was one of the better cruises that I have been on. The food was much better overall than any other cruise that i have been on. The facilities and variety of bars and lounges to choose from was also much better as compared to other cruises. The ...

Because we want the reviews and feedback below to reach the right staff, we start with the address of the highest in rank! Review: We wanted to cruise to India Not a tour in a group but an individual tour, so we could go our own way. And afterwards we could enter our clean cabin. We have booked our excursions in the Netherlands at info@fstravel.nl, which was perfectly arranged to ...

We decided on this cruise as we did a similar itinerary last Xmas & new year with Celebrity. Don’t know where to start with MSC Lirica. Food in the dinning room was inedible. Every item ordered was either too tough, burnt or not what was on menu. My husband and I decided to sit at a table of eight. Guests were trying to eat meat then spitting it out as they could not chew ...

I am going to try to explain my experience as well as I can because my english is not excellent. We chose this cruise because of the lenght and the country visited. My son and Husband wantd to know Dubai and Abu dhabi, and I wanted to visit India. We normally do a cruise per year, and we promissed not to do anymore cruises with italian companies, but we had no choices. Our expectastions were not ...

Shanghai embarkation took 5 hours. During this time there was no contact from MSC staff no announcements, help with language difficulties, no refreshments of any kind, a nightmare start. I realise the process not controllled by MSC but on the other hand just felt totally abandoned by them. The procedures / processes to get off at the ports seemed increasingly difficult, the paperwork, the ...

Great itinerary ,Shanghai to Dubai, and beautiful ship. Ports were great except for Phuket where the locals were pests and we felt unsafe. Sshanghai, Singapore and Dubai were fantastic. Shore excursions too expensive, suggest you plan your own activities at each port. entertainment was poor and amateur and repetitive. Buffet food not warm and same every day. No coffee or tea in dining room ...

We were only on the ship for 3 days thankfully. All announcements given in 6 languages. And on our 3 day cruise the muster drill was announced 3 times in 6 languages due to lack of attendance. Food was not good, On HA we eat in the dining room every night, on MSC we left the dining room first night and never went back. For the "every night option" on HA they have steak, on MSC noodles! No ...

We have been cruising for a long time, over the years since we retired we have increased or length of time on the ships picking over 30 day cruises. We was so looking forward to our cruise on the Spledida as we had been with MSC around the Carabean which for two weeks it was value for money. We where due to sail from Shanghai Asia, for 28days covering a large area of Asia and finishing in Hong ...

Have cruised on MSC Splendida twice, both in Yacht Club, and being impressed by the good service in Europe I haste to return to see what's new as this ship is now deployed in China. There is not much changes in the hartdware part, less Chinese than competitor ships. Most staff remain, particularly the good butlers. Heard that about 20% of staff are Chinese speaking and this helps to keep the ...

Why so critical of MSC?

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was the third time that we have sailed with MSC, each time on a different ship and each time with the same verdict. Great. Quite why British reviewers generally slate MSC is beyond me. This is not Royal Caribbean, it is not Cunard, it is not P and O, it is MSC, it is an Italian Line, it has Italians on it. They are not British, they are Italian, they do not eat a full English. They do not ...
