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. ...

Amazing trip!!!! MSC Divina to Caribbean 7 days

I was prepared to have not-so-good experience after reading reviews and because we had tight budget and it's impossible to return the tickets so I flight to Miami with heavy heart, especially when i was a planner ...

We booked this cruise largely because friends of ours invited us to join them. We were quite excited to try out MSC, having previously tried Royal, Disney, Norwegian and Carnival. Some Pros: 1) Loved the status ...

MSC Ocean Cay

This is my the first time writing a review but I thought I would validate and disagree with some of what I had read about MSC Seaside. This was our 14th cruise and we have cruised on NCL, RCL Carnival and Princess. ...

MSC has LOTS to learn

Context: this is our 23rd cruise, and we've been on almost all the medium priced carriers. Given that MSC is fairly new to the American market, we were all kind of excited in anticipation of sailing with them. ...

Beautifully designed Chrome & Mirrored ship, despite all the negativity!

This was our 9th cruise and we chose Seaside because of its design. We wanted as much outdoor space as possible. Tired of the old "Food Court" atrium designs. The outdoor seating for food and drink was beautiful. ...
