Somewhat naively, we didn't expect the ship to be as crowded as it was for a 2 day cruise. And it was pretty full. We didn't even try to get a lounger on the pool deck or attempt to go in the pool or hot tubs, it was that crowded on the first day. The bars were pretty full too although we managed to get seats in the Sky Lounge and watch the departure from Southhampton from there. The Sky Lounge ...

First I’ll start with the positives, quick checkin, cabin was fine, the entertainment team put on some good shows. Bruges was lovely and well worth a visit. The bars are rammed everywhere you go, there is not enough waiting staff causing passengers to queue for between 15-30 minutes each time they wanted a drink. No enough seats, tables but cleared l, bar staff run off their feet. The drinks were ...

The ship is overcrowded and there didn’t seem to be enough staff, particularly in the eating and drinking areas. The bars were understaffed, tables were always dirty and full of old drinks and glasses. There were hardly any menus around and the carpets were full of crisps etc. There was almost no clearing up taking place unless I managed to find a staff member and asked them to do it. Finding a ...

Ship is big and loud. Embarkation was not as smooth as it should have been as took over 1 hour to get on board ship despite all checkin has been completed online. First time in an inside cabin which is fine but not enough drawer space so not ideal for cruises over 5 days as you’ll need to live out your suitcase. Due to legs of bed being in the way there is no option to put cases underneath so ...

Amazing experience!! This was our first time on a cruise, we choose 3 days to try for the first time and we had lots of fun. My kids enjoyed it too, just fantastic!! The cruise was beautiful and huge. We booked 2 balcony rooms. The rooms were very clean, bed was very comfy and clean, washroom very clean. We didn't get the connecting rooms so both rooms were on different floors, which was ...

The check-in process was easy. However, the wait to get on the ship was delayed. The ship was decorated pretty good. The only thing that bothered me a little was the decor of the Calumet buffet. The decor was of native american people done very stereotypically. All the faces were red and all had war paint on and it was just tacky. You can tell that they didn't refer to any real native Americans ...

Okay this is a long one! Having been on 8 previous cruises starting in 2010 (Costa Deliziosa, Royal Caribbean - Anthem, Independence x 2, Navigator and Spectrum and P&O IONA x 2), my partner and I decided we would like to to try MSC, and the Virtuosa had an itinerary which fitted in with time off work for us both and places we hadn’t previously visited. This was kind of a ‘make it or break it’ ...

Really enjoyed my time on the MSC Euribia. Exceptionally quick embarkation at Southampton, being on the ship and at my stateroom within 15 minutes! The solo inside room was of a great size, and definitely on the spacier side compared to other cruise lines. Entertainment - this is something that MSC has definitely worked on compared to previous years. There was lots of musical performances ...

I can truthfully say the best part of this cruise was getting off it…. We have been with Princess, Cunard, Celebrity, and things you just expect as normal, you will not get on this cruise line. The port of Madeira…. 6500 passengers all getting back on the ship around the same time, two gangways and one X-ray machine in each entrance. Recipe for absolute nightmare proportions, one hour 45 ...

Dont book and if you have cancel! Returned from our cruise 4th may. Really disappointed as this was our 1st cruise and was for my 60th birthday. Everything was absolutely awful. * first complaint, no kettle in room for 3 days. Told they were still at sea somewhere by the room cleaner. * special assistance forms we filled in prior to cruise as i am disabled and in a wheelchair but it was ...
