Having the possibility to board directly in Lisbon, made all the difference. This was my first MSC cruise and I enjoyed it very much. The employees were outstanding at all levels! Many thanks and praises to the staff at the Ville Bourgeoise restaurant, you are the best!!! Also, at the buffet diniung, despite the number of guests, they were always very empathetic and professional. The ...

A few flaws but wouldn't hesitate to book again

Embarkation was problematic and stressful with ground staff unwilling to let us check in because of an alleged problem with a passport (the problem was non-existent and was finally cleared up by immigration but not before we'd been forced to stand to one side of the queue for 30 mins in 35°C heat). Once on board, however, all was forgiven. All the glitter and glam you'd expect from MSC. Pools and ...

When searching for my third cruise and having experienced more premium offerings, i discovered this 10 day western Medi itinerary. Immediate concerns were that i heard MSC was an average cruise line, in the same club as RCL and Carnival. So what did i thought? Ok, we will have the ports. The food, staff, ship will be secondary. Completely wrong idea. Lets review by items: Ship: recently ...

Geared toward Italian/European cruisers, poor entertainment

Pros: Low price/good value, most staff, especially cabin steward and bar staff, itinerary. Cons: Entertainment was poor, buffet food was poor and very odd choices, customer service staff. Entire cruise geared toward Europeans. Specifics: Room: we had 2 balcony cabins and 1 inside cabin for my family members- the inside cabin was bigger than the balconies. No matter, as Marta, our ...

Not our first time to MSC, we chose MSC because we had travelled before Covid with them and had been impressed with their ships ,staff, food, cleanliness, price etc. The MSC Virtuosa is stunning, new, modern whilst remaining elegant & classy, it is a beautiful ship and we wouldn't hesitate to come back. MSC deserves A LOT OF CREDIT , the staff have 'nailed' health & safety re : Covid-19, we ...

We initially booked the cruise for 2020 but finally were able to go on the cruise 3/7/2022. We enjoyed it! We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience a Mediterranean cruise and visit the spesific ports. Embarking was very efficient, check in was great, staff were friendly. Disembarking at the ports was not too much of a hassle. We could not go to Mykonos due to weather but a alternative ...

The cabin are very nice. So big pluss for that. Also check in was smoothe. The crew try to push a lot on you, even waiter (they get extra from it) like drinking package or spa or what ever. Its not any fun activity as NCL or RC. Like learning fun stuff, or like quiz in pub, bingo, chess, or nice gatherings like gin tasting or something. Just like try 5 most famous cheap gin for 20 euro. And the ...

We chose this cruise as it sails from Marseille which is easily accessible by us and because we wanted Yacht Club, which we have experienced before aboard the MSC Meriviglia. This is only the second time we have chosen an interior cabin (cruised about 20 times so far) and we probably wouldn't choose an interior cabin again. It was fairly comfortable but we really missed having a balcony or ...

We have just finished our Mediterranean cruise and had time to reflect on it. It was a multiple embarkation trip with passengers coming and going on a daily basis and at this time of the year there were many families with young children. Overall, having been on many MSC cruises including two in 2021 we were very disappointed with this cruise. I am sure that the Covid pandemic and the need to take ...

WORST CRUISE EVER !!!!

Where to start... From Day 1, we arrived after flying across the Atlantic only to discover that "One of our engines is broken, so we have canceled the stop in France. Not to worry, we are still seaworthy..." Options for remedy were: 1. Take a credit of $100 person / 2. Rebook at a later date. / 3. Get a full refund. (MAN DO WE WISH WE HAD PICKED THAT OPTION!!!!) We later discovered that ...
