We just came back from 7 night Baltic Sea cruise on MSC Fantasia. It was our 4th cruise. MSC Fantasia has a low score on this site. This is really unfair. MSC is a little different from other cruise line, mostly is the drinking package. ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. I had never cruised before so I can't compare msc to any other cruise line. Our experience was a positive one from start to finish. From arrival at Copenhagen port to getting on board only took ... Read more

I was trying to book a NCL cruise to burn my deposit. Last year we went on their Baltic cruise. Copenhagen, Tallin, St Petersburg, etc. They have a Norway Fjord cruise but sold out pretty quick and it was pricey. Further searching we found ... Read more

The price and destination are just perfect for my price range. The places which we visited were Baltic and the overnight stay in Saint Petersburg was a plus. I did not participate in the ship shore excursion as I wanted to work on my own ... Read more

Good value for money for a 7day cruise to the Baltic with excellant itinerary. The Fantasia was a lovely ship , with lovely decor with the Italian touch. Due to the low temperatures on deck, most passengers we're inside and it appeared ... Read more

The pick-up from the airport and boarding the ship, went very well. The facilities at the ship is very good, but that is probably all at the positive list. The service in the 2 receptions, were non existing. There were a huge lack of ... Read more

This was our first cruise and unfortunately very disappointing. Fortunately, we traveled with good friends so we could laugh at the countless things that did not work. I will start with the biggest lack and annoyance on the cruise: The ... Read more

Had a fantastic time - we were upgraded to a balcony in the back of the ship and we absolutely loved it. Beautiful ship - huge. The floors were a little confusing, but we had it down by the end of the cruise. Most all of the service ... Read more

Excellent & Faultless!! We booked this cruise with a group of friends [agegroup 25 - 70 English] because it included the drinks package. One couple had only cruised with NCL and we wanted them to experience different standards. ... Read more

I love this ship and i love MSC, I think people lose sight of the value for money you get with an MSC cruise. We have just done a one week northern europe cruise for £450 each including the Allegrisimo drinks package. The ship ... Read more

MSC Splendida was a beautiful ship. It had the largest and nicest stateroom we have ever stayed in, and this was, I think, my sixteenth cruise. The biggest problem was with excursions. We arrived on ship and attempted to book excursions ... Read more

We did this cruise mainly for the price and the convenience of departing from Zeebrugge. We cruised with our son (aged 2,5) and this was his second cruise. Let me start by saying that we had a very good week and really enjoyed ... Read more

Chose this cruise based on value for money, we are experienced cruisers and have been with several other cruise lines. This ship is beautiful but the food quality and service lets it down. Embarkation was not bad really, and our cabin was ... Read more

First time with MSC and couldn't really fault. Great value taster cruise from Hamburg to Southampton on an "All Inclusive" basis. Ship is large and well laid out. Plenty of space and nowhere seemed too busy. Staff were ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its extensive itnerary (and affordable cost). Out of 11 days we had only one day at sea. From Australia we flew into Berlin to experience this fascinating city for a few days and then we took the train from there ... Read more

Great shows...I am starting off positive but there were some things that were not so good. The buffet has too many tables and people cannot walk through the room; this is probably because the ship has too many cabins! Breakfast and ... Read more

After search for a cruise around the Baltic, we found this one and choose it for the best itinerary (it visited more ports than cruises offered by other cruise lines) and for the incredible price (less than 1000 euros per passenger). I ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the itinerary and the sailing date, although we had a bad experience with MSC before. We did not book any transport or excursions with MSC but made our own arrangements. Embarkation was the usual tedious business, ... Read more

This was our first cruise and picked the ship for its Ports and Price (Having two kids 11 and 6 is was way cheaper than other cruise lines.) We had a brilliant holiday and we would not hesitate to use MSC again. Embarkations and ... Read more

We choose this cruise, because it was advertised on a deal site. The destinations looked great and it was close to home. We could board in Copenhagen and we live 10 km from there. Very nice. As we know Copenhagen, being natives, we did ... Read more
