My wife and I are not first time cruisers as we have cruised with Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Holland America, and Disney. We have friends that have cruised extensively for the last ten years or so. They cruised with MSC on a different ship in Europe and were quite pleased. As a result they were ‘Voyagers’ status and given a price reduction on the Miraviglia out of Miami. Our friends invited us and ...

We live in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico so this cruise on the Meraviglia was purely for enjoying the ship and the relaxation. The ports were not as important to us because we already live in the Caribbean. With that being said let's begin this review. Embarkation: I have to admit I was a little worried getting on a ship of this size would be a pain with long lines and long waits. Boy was I wrong. ...

The ship is amazing. The embarkation was terrible, simply terrible. Took us 2 hours, at least, to enter the ship. The ship was full, sold out. That of course didn't help. The food at buffet was much better than at the restaurant. Food quality was not that high, I really was surprise. My expectations was maybe a bit too high, because of others cruises we did. We didn't book any excursion. ...

We are platinum on Carnival and don’t have kids. We have been on 3 other cruise lines. Thought to give MSC a try because of the reasonable price. We were pleased with the ship design and onboard activities (for additional cost), everything else was average fare. Biggest disappointment was the lack of 24/7 self serve ice cream machines on board. Food in the dining room was average, nothing to rave ...

Disappointed ship

We choose this ship for the cost and ports. So after checking in the staff forgot to give us a boarding number so we sat even longer to board the ship. The ship was beautiful, rooms was pretty small compared to other ships we've been on. The hallways and water smelled like sewer. Housekeeping was ok we had to get our own daily activities information packet each night. Housekeeping didn't replace ...

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND ON A DIFFERENT CRUISE LINE!! Our family of 70+ decided to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary plus birthdays of our loved ones. Many of us have cruised on other cruise lines before. We have collectively decided to never board an MSC vessel again!! Given the videos we saw about MSC, we approached our cruise with great anticipation only to be shocked by the gross ...

We did this cruise as a company trip. It was my first cruise. I really expected more. The service was terrible except for one waitress named Nikki from the horizon pool bar! She was the best thing about the ship! Always smiling and happy to serve! But the rest of the crew was rude and seemed as if they hated their job. No one at the main bar by the stairs in the lobby would even look at me. I ...

Msc meraviglia was recommended by my travel agent - the best part about the cruise was the excellent shows - they were super - dining was below average - food was either overcooked or delivered cold - ordered lobster, but shell was not cracked - no small utensils for lobster - not enough activities on board ship - hot tub and pool area was good - servers at our table were excellent - buffet had a ...

This cruise was a 13 day repositioning cruise to the Caribbean, from NYC to Miami & not the five day Canada cruise, as stated! We chose this cruise because it left from our home port of NYC, eliminating on air fare, plus the cost was low, i.e. $499. per person for an ocean view room! The ship was opulent & the shows presented were beautifully staged, with the digitally changing backgrounds ...

My husband and I have been on about 22 cruises. We always look forward to each and every cruise. We understand the highs and lows of the various cruise lines. But the MSC Meraviglia had to be the worst! It started at embarkation in NY. We were going on a 10 nt round trip cruise to Canada in October, 2019. We were on line for 3 hours! Some were on line 4 or 5!!! No food. No drink. Nowhere ...
