We don't recommend this cruise for English passengers

We have been on several other cruises over the years and this was by far the worst. Passengers made up of mainly Italian and French; not many English on board, so excursions were multi lingual. Passengers were ...

All Style and No Substance

I'll try to keep this as simple as I can. The ship is clean and beautiful. Great Mediterranean itinerary. We liked our balcony room and very nice steward. It was noisy and not a lot of sound proofing, but I expected ...

Beautiful ship, inferior cruise

We chose this cruise because of the ports, timing, and cost. The ship was beautiful with wonderful appointments. Access to room was each with a touch or the room card. There was an "over 18 only" room on the 18th ...

Mediterranean Cruise

Just completed a Mediterranean cruise on MSC Poesia. As mentioned by others, the buffet was limited selection, repetitive menu, and poor quality food at best. In general the guests were pushy and rude at the buffet. ...

Very disappointing. Not a patch on Cunard

We chose this cruise because it was inexpensive. Also we had the drinks package. This ship does not cater for English people. The cabin TV had 2 channels in English, both news channels, out of forty available. ...

I chose this cruise because I had travelled on MSC Armonia to the Carribean in February 2018 and it was excellent in all areas. The cruise on MSC Sinfonia to the Mediterranean was terrible. I waited for one hour at ...
