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 ...

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 ...

I “survived” the pseudo-coronaviris scare on the MSC Meraviglia and I can still say I had a great vacation even though we missed 3 ports. The staff remained friendly, and the cruise line did great damage control by giving us a 100% refund and $200 ship credit per stateroom. Prior to leaving, one of our rooms got upgraded from an interior to a balcony. The shows and live music were great, there ...

My husband and I herd wonderful things about the MSC cruises. We decided to go on one for our honeymoon. We have cruised several times before on royal Caribbean and carnival. When we first walked in you didn’t get that “wow” feeling...it was either u turned left or right like you were coming back onto the ship from a cruise port. There was no one directing us where to go or how to tell where our ...

We chose this cruise to celebrate my birthday. We traveled with 3 other coupled. There were quite a few children on board but we didn’t have any with any of us. Unfortunately we had a crew member that got the flu and prevented us to visit 3 of our schedule stops. The crew did a great job keeping the ship clean and sanitized and encouraging everyone to wash your hands often. The captain and his ...

Had an opportunity to do a cruise this year. This was a deal with Sunwing vacations. First of all I’ve been on other cruises to the Caribbean on Holland, Princess and Carnival. Most of our vacation south are at 4.5-5 star resorts so we are familiar with quality and standards. This cruise even with a few issues along the way with no stopping at Jamaica or Cayman Island ( this one I really wanted ...

Travelled with family. Ship was beautiful. As embarking we were hounded by in-your-face sales/photo people. This continued throughout ship. Very annoying! Cabin very clean. Compliments to room cleaning crew. Seated dining was terrible, being rushed thru dinner for 2 other later seatings. Staff was pressed to get food served. Food mediocre. Pasta portions too small. Buffet crowded and people ...

Choose this cruise for the price and to try MSC to see how they stacked against the competition. Over all I liked it and will consider them again if they are going to destinations I like. Here is a list of the good and bad: GOOD: 1) The ship is well maintained compared to the competition. 2) Ship layout is good, and easy to figure out within the first day. 3) Drink prices are ...

A friend of mine chose this cruise after being referred by a travel agent who had never sailed on the ship. I had read the reviews but hoped for the best. What we liked: very friendly staff who clearly work their butts off. The Cirque du Soleil show was excellent as was the Born to Rock show. We splurged on dinner at Butcher's Cut, which was excellent, too but cost close to $150 for 2 ...

This was our 15th cruise. First time with MSC. Won't be the last. There were good and back things. But overall a wonderful time and great value! Pros: Staff were all wonderful. The welcome back parties at the ports were very nice extra. Our servers in Waves, Martin and Hasel were attentive and gave great service. The ship was absolutely stunning. Loved the Swarovski crystal staircase. ...
