1-10 of 22 Middle East MSC Bellissima Middle East Cruise Reviews
First time on board of MSC Bellissima. Thought the itinerary was interesting therefore made the choice. Sail date was 07 March 2020, which was during coronavirus outbreak. They should have cancelled the cruise as there were many Italians and older people. But the aim of this corporation is MONEY and not the well being of people. They cancelled 2 ports of call so just circling around Dubai and ...
Cruise chosen as a replacement for another tour. Successful stay from start to end.Entering the deck and exits from the deck hassle-free and smooth. Our cabin with balcony spacious. Bar replenished after each use. Towels are exchanged very often. Extra towels for beach.
Food very good.Huge buffet with dozens of dishes. Outside the buffet themed restaurants. Our stay we had no extra packages. ...
We are highly disappointed and feel cheated out of our money. I feel like MSC should’ve canceled the cruise due to coronavirus outbreak as we didn’t visit any ports outside of UAE. I refuse to believe that MSC did not know this ahead of time. We stayed at sea most of time and basically cruised from Abu Dhabi to Dubai. We disembarked early in Dubai as we simply could not take being on the ship ...
I thought this a good time as any to write this review, as I’m lying in bed listening to the clanking and pounding coming from above our cabin.
Disappointment began departure day. They had the wrong boarding time listed on our e tkts and we could have checked in about 4 hrs earlier. Fortunately, we didn’t miss check in completely.
This is a new Billion dollar ship. They should have spent a ...
Chose this cruise for some sunshine good food and sight seeing.
Long queues every where ie checking in. Reception always had a queue
Boat was clean
Cabin ok but cabin boy over worked and never reached our cabin till late afternoon.
Deserts poor compared to other companies
Waiters were great
Continually being asked to take drinks package even through we ...
We had not been with MSC before, and I must say, that we were very pleasantly surprised. Yes, we know that it is a new ship, that it is large, and would probably be crowded and noisy, but we had a very enjoyable week.
There was always something to do, the staff were super friendly and helpful and efficient.
They also smiled!
Entertainment was good. We didn’t see all of the shows, but we ...
To anyone thinking of taking a cruise on the MSC Bellissima - Think very carefully if you value your life at sea We experienced the worst safety demonstration ever noone was taking control of the situation we were in the theatre and it was jsut a shambles no officers were taking control of the demo very poor total lack of interest. The second item of safety we saw was one of the crew cleaning the ...
* Avoid deck 14 rooms by any means, until they are at the very nose of the ship (see cabin review)
* All the packages (drinks, Internet) are hugely overpriced and I see no reason you'd like to use them as no bartender could make proper cocktail there regardless of the price. The only drinkable mix is fruit smoothie so just stick to plain drinks, especially their a la carte price is quite ...
CHRISTMAS CRUISE Abu Dhabi (22-12-2019 until 29-12-2019)
Everything started with the wrong foot (Family travel - Party of 11 originally, but only 9 arrived because my mother had an emergency surgery and stayed with my father) So the first thing we did before embarkation, we presented all the medical certifications, and we didn´t get the refund of the stateroom, but thay didn´t also give us the ...
My first cruise. Ship new, but problems with touch screens in public areas. Some time you must 5 or more time touch before react.
Service in rooms excellent.
The buffet is very, very good and the food very tasty.
The food in restaurants is good, but most are nothing special. The last days we eat only in the buffet.
Entertainment very good.
On the last day of the cruise we wanted to ...
