Worse than expected.

I'm an avid cruiser being on at least 40 Cruise's since 1983. Having cruised on RCCL (diamond member), Princess, Carnival, NCL, HAL, Celebrity, Red Boat, Admiral I have a reasonable idea what makes for a good ...

Worst service

We chose this cruise for 2 reasons. First we had sailed on the Divina a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Secondly it was the right timing for our schedules (2 couples). We arrived at the cruise port for our ...

You will be disappointed in all aspects.

We chose the cruise because of the sailing dates... and the price seemed reasonable. But the dates were the deciding factor. I had never cruised with MSC before. This was a 7 night Caribbean cruise. Ship ...

Just got off the MSC Seaside. We did 2 weeks (back to back) And here is my honest opinion. If you don't like what I I write so be it. First we are a french canadian couple in our mid 40's and we have ...

Beautiful ship, minus the service inefficiency and rude, pushy passengers

We chose this cruise because it seemed at the time to be the best deal of the season in respect to price, available packages, itinerary, and our own criteria. We were a group of 10 people in 4 cabins. 2 reserved ...

Got what I paid for - but below average overall as compared to other cruises.

I knew going in that this "last minute" deal, on this ship likely was not going to be the best cruise I'd ever been on. The old saying "you get what you pay for" held true in this instance. The cruise did give me ...

MSC is NOT for me

Worst cruise experience ever. Have cruised several times on a number of cruise lines and would not recommend MSC at all. Service was poor, food was lousy - same thing every day and not that good. Ship was full ...

I didn't want to believe all the bad reviews, however, unfortunately.....

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. It was the first time cruising with MSC. Embarkation was excellent. We were on the ship in about 1/2 an hour. We paid extra for the Fantastica experience. ...

No... Just No

My husband found this cruise on Travelocity at a very good price. We have been on 13 cruises but never with MSC. At such a great price, we thought we would give it a try. Boarding the ship in Miami was a breeze. ...

We chose this cruise because they promised us a suite , and for both of us, 7day cruise including taxes and port charges only $1700. The cabin was no better than a balcony room on any other line. It was ok, but ...
