We chose the cruise to see family in new York, Visit "beautiful" |||| New England and travel on a fantastic looking ship at what we thought a reasonable price. Embarkation wasnt too bad considering the number of people but disembarcation horrendous. I dont know if it was better if you had pre booked one of their final destination tours or their airport transport but as our travel agent had ...

MSC Yacht Club is not equal to a luxury cruise line.

We just returned from the October 8 trip on the Meraviglia to Canada from New York. We were in the Yacht Club so I am comparing this to other luxury cruises I have been on such as Silversea or Crystal. As has been said the embarkation process was very poor. There was no YC luggage drop off nor did anybody know there was a YC area however there was and we found it by pure chance. We checked ...

We chose because of price and destination. Too many passengers for the staff who did their best to keep up. Rarely was I asked if I wanted coffee after lunch or dinner. Three times no creamer, waiter brought a glass or cup of cream and poured it into my warm coffee. My usual go-to alternative at dinner is salmon. It was small and overcooked. No TV reception-I missed news and sports for 10 days. ...

It could have been so good, but the embarkation was the worse I have ever had to endure. Easy for me as I was not as old as some of the travellers who were made to stand for over 4 hours in the port whilst they embarked. No information, no water, shame on you MSC. Once aboard the ship all was good. The cabin beautifully adequate with good service from the attendant. Food was good and ...

After our smooth flight to New York, my wife and I began our MSC 7 night cruise with a rather painless check in. While walking to the ship I was impressed by the new appearance of the ship. Everything was clean and freshly painted (ship looked new). Upon entering the ship I was greeted by many ships crew welcoming me (barely speaking English) wanting to escourt me to my room. My wife an I ...

The old adage, if it's sounds too good to be true it is...applies here. Pricing is very attractive. You get what you pay for. We travelled only two hours to port embarkation which was very convenient. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. The ship was absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean. Itinerary was wonderful. Cabin and table stewards were as attentive as ship's policies ...

MSC Poesia - Not For the American Market? We cruised the maiden New England voyage for Poesia September 22-Oct 2, 2010, choosing it based on a one-day fantastic price offered on the internet for a balcony (Category 8)... at less than eight hundred dollars, before tax. As we soon found out ... you only get what you pay for ... and there are striking differences between American-based cruises ...

The Canadian Maritime Province itinerary of this cruise and the thought of sailing on a new ship was appealing but the execution of all aspects of the pre-cruise experience, a nearly four hour wait during embarkation and general on-board disorganization have convinced me to refrain from sailing with MSC in the future. Having experienced the woeful lack of customer service when booking a previous ...

Had a really good time as usual we dont let the little stuff get to us.The crew were unreal and worked harder than ever to make our vacation as good as it could be. THE PROBLEM? The company completley misses the mark on the importance of quality and making tools available to the staff. We have done about 15 cruises now Royal Caribbean, celebrity,Cunard, Seabourn, viking and even Carnival and ...
