It's a beautiful ship.
That really is the only thing I can think of in it's favour. We embarked Meraviglia as a family..."Read More

Complete chaos took us 3 hours to get on the ship.

Common this was sad the waves restaurant we eat 10 of the 17 nights i had one good meal that was the ribeye.

This was a winter break away. The check in was straight forward. No major problems.
Inside the ship, you scan your sea pass card at a machine and authorize €250 to b taken as on board credit.
The first night, the food was abhorrent. Our waiter James from India was quite quick with service. The dining room is all on one level.
The headliner show was a magician who made animal shapes ...
I'm a frequent cruiser, as I've been on other cruise lines including Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, and Carnival, and I have never been on a cruise ship where I was treated with such a low regard in my entire life.
Now, this is not my first time with MSC. I have sailed on the MSC Divina and the Seaside out of Miami each twice. However, on the Seaside we booked the Yacht Club, ...
Sailed with husband,daughter and 2 friends.
This was our 55th cruise. 6th cruise line, returned from 04/04/2019 sailing on MSC .meraveglia
The ship is lovely, staff was wonderful, especially Jonathan, my room steward. ( Balcony Stateroom #13150, Aurea experience), was kept perfect at all times. Jonathan was kind, courteous and one of the best I’ve ever had.
The room needs more ...
I have been cruising with other companies before so this is not my first cruise experience. But this is my first and last cruise experience with MSC. Pros and cons:
(1) Beautiful interior - swarovski crystal stairs make it perfect for photos. The giant LED gallery on the 6th floor ceiling also stunning.
(2) Cabin - my interior cabin has pretty good space and got tidy up very well ...
I traveled with my partner and my mother, both my mother and I have traveled with Royal Caribbean quite a few times so I have another company to base this experience with.
We flew to Barcalona from Heathrow, and joined the MSC MERIVIGLIA, my partner who is a first time cruiser was taken back by the size of the ship, as she puts it “wow” and indeed, the ship is massive, and magnificent, and ...
This was our first cruise on MSC so we were excited to try a new company after a couple of friends had recommended them. The ship itself is nice enough but found the many staff members to be quite rude. We visited some excellent ports. Food was decent. Most shows were dreadful. We had a couple of good party nights where we could dance until late. As it was winter the indoor pool and ...
A little about us: my husband & I are 45-50 yrs old. We have cruised a total of 34 cruises on RCCL, Celebrity, Princess, Norwegian (2) & Carnival (2).
This was our 4th European cruise but our 1st MSC cruise.
The ship is very pretty. The dome area in the center of the ship is a real feature. I hope MSC utilizes it in many other ways.The Stairs are beautiful. The dining rooms could have more ...
Cruise in NEITHER a 1 nor a 5...realistically closer to a 2.
Best NOT to view this as a cruise ... better to invision as a hotel with meals and transportation to locations.
Ship has 5700 passengers and a crew of another 1500.....word to the wise!
Ship passangers are 80 percent Italian. Large groups of Chinese. Also Germans, French, Japanese, Russians and other nationalities. Very few ...
We were on the Meraviglia March 11-18. We booked the cruise about 5 weeks before departure because we had the opportunity to travel to Europe for work during March. With the tight timeline and last minute wedding items to attend to (our wedding was March 3) we thought a cruise would be a great option.
We were not able to relax during our honeymoon because of serval inaccuracies between the ...
