This was our 2nd MSC cruise, the first one being 5 years ago on the Divina. We are platinum on both Carnival and NCL. As a New Yorker, I was trilled when I found out MSC would be sailing out of the city. The entertainment on this ship was excellent. I'd say the talent was Broadway quality. Each night there were new shows in the theatre. There was also music in smaller venues for listening ...

Just a note: I can't seem to select just the 10-day portion, we couldn't do the 23 day due to job/time restrictions. MSC Meraviglia Review: 18 Oct 2019 – 28 Oct 2019 Passengers: me (CH), my husband (BH), and our adult daughter (SH). Package: Fantastica: inside cabin, the Easy Drinks, Spa, Arcade/Amusement Park Fun Pass, and Internet (which we upgraded onboard). We reserved both Cirque ...

I read the many critical reviews but booked 3 consecutive cruises totaling 23 nights for a relatively low price anyway. I am writing my first cruise review after taking 10 cruises because my great experience and belief that some of the criticisms are dated. MSC must have worked on some of the points people criticized it on based on my experience. My embarkation was on 10/22 in NYC. The ports ...

I was a little concerned when I read many negative reviews. But I was very happy with the ship, food and everything else. Really good service and food. The rolls where the best I have ever had and the pasta was out of this world. The servings in the dining room where small and I really appreciated that. I agree beef dishes were lacking, I did not have the lobster but the shrimp cocktail ...

Over the past year, I have read many negative reviews re: the MSC Poesia. My wife & I disembarked on Oct 22, 2011 in NYC from a 14-day R/T NYC to Quebec, Canada. on the beautiful MSC Poesia. We have been on more than 40 cruises including Celebrity, RCCL, NCL, Costa, HAL, Carnival and Homes and we happily add MSC to the list. * I cannot identify with any of the negativity that has been ...

This was my first MSC cruise. I had taken 15 cruises before this one. Cabin: Small,inside,but ok for me. No hair conditioner or body lotion. Bed hard. Very lumpy pillows. No chair-just a stool. No choc. mint on pillow at night. Food: Hit or miss. Very inconsistent-for example I had veal scaloppini one night and it was great,another night it was terrible. Some food good(even ...

We booked a Fall Foliage cruise with another couple on the MSC Poesia embarking on October 8, 2011. The embarkation was smooth and efficient and the lunch was just what we needed. We found it refreshing to be among so many different nationalities on board as opposed to Caribbean cruises with whiny parents and their disruptive children. Although repetitious, announcements in five different ...

After reading many rather negative reviews about MSC on Cruise Critic I had doubts about trying the line but I liked the itinerary of the October 8, 2011 MSC Poesia cruise to New England and Canada and booked. I was very pleased with all aspects of the cruise experience and while the ship is very European and while the MSC cruise experience is somewhat different from what most North Americans ...

This ship is absolutely beautiful. Everything was clean and fresh and shiny. The food was good to delicious in the MD and the buffet. In fact, the prime rib was better than we had recently at a local steak house. We enjoyed the Cruise Critic party. It was held in the Sky Lounge and was the largest number of guests to attend. There were drinks and snacks and we got a chance to meet the ...
