Good price. Six days five night cruise was $179. . Embarkation was average. It takes a bit of time for 2500 people to board a ship so that was not remarkable either way. When we arrived onto the ship we were ...

Average experience

Well first of all I want to say that the Coronavirus did not impact our cruise whatsoever. We didn't even know about the chaos at home until we disembarked from our cruise on March 14. We booked this "spring ...

The worst cruise I've been on.

The ship is huge, beautiful and well decorated. We had an inside cabin, which was about the same size as on any cruise line, but there were only two very small drawers and we had to ask for Kleenex. There was no ...

Expected disappointment based on last trip--got what we expected

Last trip on MSC Divina we said, "never again". This was based on noisy, pushy crowed public spaces and on the awful food. This year on MSC Seaside we had a very good price point offer and felt we couldn't resist ...

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 ...

My husband and I specifically chose this cruise to participate in a Holistic (Vegan) Holiday at Sea. The cruise experience was mediocre at best, but from talking to others, not everyone felt the same way. However, ...

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 ...

MSC Meraviglia

We received a good deal for the cruise and it was an opportunity to be in warm weather during the winter. We were not impressed with the overall appearance and feel of the ship. It was much too large for our ...

Do yourself a favor, choose a different cruise line

This was my first and last time cruising with MSC. I travelled with my sister, and we were both super excited to try a new cruise line. We had an “Aurea” balcony room. I’m not very hard to please, and the room ...

Fantastic entertainment; much of the rest a disappointment

Embarkation took longer than other cruise lines. Less than 2/3 of the check-in booths were open. Because of the coronavirus a medical report had to be filled out by each passenger on site and the crew member passing ...
