"The meals in the restaurant were enjoyable, but the buffet evening meal was not as good, avaiable on the night we used the buffet there was arancini, pizza, salads, roast beef (well under cooked) and veg.Overall a good break...."Read More

booked this cruise as a present for my parents, as they've never cruised before. We had to take a pcr test 2 days beforehand, at a cost of £200...only to have to take a lateral flow test as well before boarding...ship was clean and staff were very nice and attentive. The food was really not what you would expect on a cruise ship, very "school canteen" in the buffet restaurant, and the Main ...

Boarded the MSC Magnifica in Southampton and queue times were 1 hour + due to only 3 staff at check-in. Once through check-in had to go through baggage scan then nose swab and sit and wait fro 30 minutes + and collect baording and cabin card. Asked about registering credit card when i was at the desk and was told it is now done onboard where they take 250 euro and at end of cruise will ...

We had booked this cruise with 2 of our friends we had met on our previous cruise around the Greek Islands last November. We chose this cruise due to the low price and health care workers discount which was being offered by the cruise line. We thought the weather may not be great but it will be good to be back on a cruise visiting ports we hadn't been to for a while sailing with friends who ...

The chance to get away for a short break and the ports to visit. The Magnifica is a clean and tidy ship with very friendly and attentive crew. The entertainment in the lounges/bars were of mixed standard all aided by backing tracks, one duo needed help from the audience with remembering the lyrics, there was an Italian song night, we were unable to find any Italian connection! The Sinatra ...

First of all the bad weather did play a big part in ruining our cruise,We visited Le Havre then We we’re planned to stop at Zeebrugge which got cancelled along with Ijmuiden so we sailed to Hamburg which was closed on a Sunday so why sail their. Positives: The staff on board the ship where outstanding a special mention to Maria from Peru part of the waiting on staff The cleanliness of the ...

I chose this cruise because I enjoy the entertainment on MSC and it didn’t disappoint. Also there was no single supplement so this was amazing value MSC Magnifica is a wonderful ship big enough to feel spacious (particularly at only 1/3 capacity) but. Not too big to be a menace to navigate. The food was very good and the crew couldn’t be more friendly and helpful, excepting in a couple of ...

I chose this cruise because my boyfriend and I love taking cruises. I had been to Europe a few times, but he had never been. I thought this was a great way to see Paris a few days before, cruise to a few different locations and spend an extra night in Germany before coming home. He has never been a sightseer or history buff, but he absolutely LOVED it. This was the most efficient organized ...

Not the best cruise we've been on

This was not the best cruise we've been on at all.....the main problem was the food, it was very, very poor. We ate in the dining room and it arrived Luke warm every time. On the first evening we waited 40 minutes between starter and main course. A couple of the steak meals we had were inedible. Staff were generally nice, especially Joy on the pool deck and sometimes The Tiger bar. Although ...

We booked this cruise as we had a good offer which included a balcony upgrade, all inclusive package and WiFi. After reading some reviews we were worried that we wouldn’t enjoy it but went with an open mind. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth for us. We were on and off ship very quickly. We were given a 13.00 time but couldn’t go to our rooms until 14.30. So had to keep our hand ...

We booked this via Vision Cruise on TV as the price was excellent for 8 days including a drinks package and ocean view cabin. We should have realised it was cheap for a reason. Arriving at Southampton, embarkation was badly organised. On previous cruises we've been 15 minutes from car to ship, over an hour this time. Queuing to board was not pleasant. The ramp had steps up one side and a ramp ...
