The worst cruise we have ever had!

Would not cruise again

We chose this cruise because the kids were free and since we were getting married it seemed like a good choice to offset some of the costs. This was my first cruise but my husband had previously cruised before on ...

If you're used to an American line don't touch MSC you'll regret it

We sail RCI and NCL every few months. Embarkation and disembarkation was shocking - didnt get onboard until 2.30pm as a black status holder. Its 10am now and no one has disembarked yet... we are standing in huge ...

MSC - NOT FOR THE AMERICAN MARKET - no way!

Was so hoping that things were going to be different on this cruise and the Meraviglia since MSC is now making a huge play for the AMERICAN MARKET....but it was really an unfortunate circumstance for a wonderful ...

First and Last Cruise!

Where to start.. We booked this ship with our friends for a 50th birthday celebration, and as we'd never been on cruise before we didn't really know what to expect. A painfully slow check in, people barging, ...

Disappointing Cruise

Slow and tedious embarkation, arrogant office staff but very friendly cabin staff. Difficult to find a table at buffet. Once walked for nearly 1 hour at lunchtime to get a seat. Poorly organised and crowd push in ...

If you are a North American cruiser, STAY AWAY

This cruise was fairly well advertised in North America, in hopes I think of getting a slice of the North American market. It failed miserably. The food was terrible. There was very little beef or shellfish ...

Very noisy, unsophisticated way of travel

I booked this cruise from Bari to Venice (6 nights) as it was a cheap way to find out what this cruising is like. I can't say I liked it. In the end I filled out the questionnaire they give you and found 20 points ...
