We chose this cruise as this is a new ship and we like to experience new vessels. Well where do I start ,got to southampton ,it then took 3 1/2 hours to board the ship,yes really 3 1/2 hours.

Chose this cruise due to Covid situation to avoid possible isolation on return home. Told by MSC to arrive for 11am and it took an hour and a half to get on board - appreciate that we had to have Covid tests, but the delay was partly due to the regular passengers being left outside while the Yacht Club passengers boarded. Not a great start. Virtuosa is a very beautiful ship with sparkly staircases ...

Once MSC announced that their flagship Virtuosa was going to have her inaugural season in U.K. waters, making several sailings around the country for British residents, we wanted to sail on her.

For us this was a great opportunity to just travel for about an hour, driving 35 miles from home ...

Oh God have we missed cruising !! As soon as MSC announced UK Staycation Cruises WITHOUT the need for 2 Covid vaccinations, we couldn't wait to set sail. MSC have been leading the way with Covid-Safe Cruising since last August, which gave us complete confidence in their tried and tested procedures. Every other cruise line is insisting on the double-jab which rules out many younger cruisers and ...
