First there was several cruise to go on, that was very reasonable, I didn’t want to travel the same islands that I have already seen 6 times. So, I decided to do the MSC even though it was more expensive but I get to see something different. I paid for me and my two granddaughters, then my daughter wanted to go. So I paid for her. Then my other daughter wanted to go, there was no other room ...

Fantastica B2 Balcony 12085 and 12083 Our cabins were very nice, not a lot of drawers for stuff but we managed ok. Excellent bathroom with a real shower door. We did bring a battery operated night light for the bathroom that was ...

Awful guest services, bad food, underwhelming and sad

I'm gonna bullet point this *Sheila Dimaan at guest services was awful, argued about fixing an issue rather than fixing the issue. Got so bad we wanted off the boat, boy were they quick to try to make that happen, btw the issue was fixing my room key card and the contact tracing bracelets (kind of important). Were told they couldn't help until after muster was all cleared, meanwhile we ...

My husband and I are fairly avid cruises, generally taking 1-2 cruises each year. Cruising is our favorite type of vacation. We've been on Carnival, Celebrity and RC. Celebrity tends to be our favorite (we are single, no children, in our 40's) and RC is a very close 2nd choice. My career has been in hospitality (restaurants, bars, hotels) as a VP for many year, so I'm very aware of the little ...

Review of 3 day weekend cruise on the MSC Meraviglia. Our group of 4 consisted of my husband and I along with my 2 sisters. We have all cruised many times but it was the first time on MSC. We booked this about a month out and got a last minute deal of a free balcony upgrade at the inside price. Not knowing MSC we booked the Bella and the balcony was solid metal and when sitting you could not ...

I booked the weekender cruise on the MSC Meraviglia so that I could see the ship's design. Gorgeous Italian design, beautiful everywhere you look. Best looking large pool that I've seen on 14 different ships , very nice additional pools and hot tubs. Cabin was nicely laid out and spacious. Food , service, and entertainment were all good. The high point was their Ocean Cay private island. Just ...

Wife and I have sailed on 24 different cruises on various cruise lines. For quality of service, room size and most important price, we would have to rate our experience sailing on the Meraviglia in the top three. Contrary to others comments regarding the variety of meals while on board, we found there were ample choices each evening in the main dining area. Though the menus may not vary ...

I tried MSC for the first time, like most people on the ship because of the great price. This is my experience recently on the Meraviglia. I got a e mail to check in at 1:40 originally then it was changed to 2:30. My flight got in at 11:00 and we went right to the ship , was welcomed and taken right in at 11:45. The process to get on the ship was less than a hour. Everyone I talked to was worried ...

We like MSC, wanted to try the new ship and was not disappointed (except for cancelling Ocean Cay but can't do anything about the weather). In spite of some reviews, the crew is friendly and accomodating, there is toilet paper, tissues, and washcloths, food is as good or better than most cruise lines, the buffet has a lot of variety. It's a personal thing, but wish that MSC did not stray from ...

We choose this cruise because of the beautiful ship, price and itinerary. Embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth. We were able to board the ship at the time of our scheduled arrival. The disembarkation was amazing. We could stay in our rooms until 8:00am and then had access to a full buffet breakfast. We could also go anywhere on the ship until it was time to get off. The ship was ...
