MSC is a Mediterranean cruise line that currently has one ship sailing out of Miami (a new ship, the Seaside, will arrive in Jan 2018). We were skeptical about trying them since we had been on another Italian line, Costa, and were ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever and we loved every single moment of it. I have been working in the Airline Industry for 20 years now as a Flight Attendant, so traveling is nothing new to me. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but I ... Read more

The price was good and the itinerary was what I wanted. Having sailed on the DiVina before, I thought I would give it another chance. Food what the worst I have had on a cruise line. Food was usually cold and had no taste. Tried the ... Read more

My wife and I have sailed several different Caribbean itineraries over the years. We decided to give MSC a try primarily because of the low initial price, but we were also intrigued by the loyalty tier matching program they offer. Over ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was very reasonable and the ports were appealing . Firstly the flight into Genoa was horrific the turbulence and the terrible landing dare I say by a woman pilot was the worst ever and we are seasoned ... Read more

It was a very interesting cruise on the MSC Line and we enjoyed meeting so many different people from so many countries. We had a nice experience with our cuisine and loved our waiter Suastica in the Black Crab. I would recommend as far ... Read more

Rude Italian staff. No chance of getting a chair by the pool on deck 14 or 15 during the day. Too many passengers for the size of the pools and hot tubs. Enough room for 2500 max, not 4500. No chance of ever getting a buffet table at ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were certainly not disappointed. The ship was fantastic and all the staff were always smiling. Food was very good, all though I was surprised that they could not make a real caparchio. We had a balcony ... Read more

We've just returned from our 3rd and, to our surprise, best MSC cruise. We sailed Sinfonia out of Venice to Split, Santorini, Mykonos, Dubrovnik and Ancona. The ship is smallest of our 3 cruises, easy to walk around but with some dead ends ... 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

I initially chose this cruise because of the price. I wasn't familiar with MSC, and couldn't believe the price was for a 7 day cruise with a balcony cabin. Did some research and even though the reviews by some cruisers were a mixed bag, ... Read more
