MSC Opera - Marmite of the Sea

Review for MSC Opera to Spain

10+ Cruises

Age 70s

On reading previous reviews I have come to the conclusion that this ship can be classed as the Marmite of the Cruising World; it's either loved or hated. I have just returned from a 10 day cruise to Holland, Spain, Portugal and France. This is my second cruise on the Opera and my seventeenth cruise overall. Previous cruise experiences include P&O, Cunard, Princess and Holland America, as well as ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

Just returned from our first cruise on this ship (18th August) . Unfortunately the weather was not great and so the ship was unable to port in Guernsey which we were really looking forward to. The additional sea days were not really catered for by the ship. Most of the activities for adults were puerile and an insult to my intelligence and I found most of the shows I attended poor in quality. My ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 40s

We have just returned from our 1st ever cruise onboard the MSC Opera. Travelling with 3 children aged 12, 10, & 7. Although the food, staff and accommodation were very good, I found the entertainment for adults to be very boring. and the activities for children extremely poor. For this reason I do not think I would go with MSC again. There was literally nothing for the kids to do and they spent ...

Age 60s

I wanted to relate to you our experience on the MCS Opera. From the time we checked in we started experiencing problems. The young man at the check in counter could not run our credit card, he said he would have to enter it manually, this would prove to be a problem later in the cruise. In addition, my picture for the room and charge card did not come out clearly. When I boarded the ship I was ...

We were a family of 9 cruising with MSC for the first time , we have previously cruised on p&o and my parents with the royal Caribbean, we like many were a little put off by the few bad reviews we had read and did wonder what the holiday would be like.. well all i can say is there are moaners out there, that even if all was absolutely 100% perfect they would have to find something to moan about! ...

Just took my 7th cruise and decided to try MSC (we have previously cruise Celebrity, RCI, NCL). After reading some reviews I was dreading the cruise and we actually considered cancelling at one stage! However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was one of the best cruises we have had and fantastic value for money. The staff were all very pleasant, our cabin steward was superb and very ...

Like other reviewers we did consider cancelling after reading reviews. So glad we didn't, had a wonderful time. Had no problems with staff,entertainment or food. Many children on board but no problem all seemed to be having a great time, noisy but then children are. Enjoyed the shows the singers were really good and other acts eg acrobats etc although not to our taste were very good as ...

GREAT CRUISE - DOESN'T DESERVE THE BAD REVIEWS

6-10 Cruises

Age 50s

We have just returned from the above cruise and was so glad that i didn't cancel my cruise based on the reviews I had read on various sites. We have had over 10 cruises with Celebrity, Royal Carribean and NCL, we had chosen the MSC cruise as we were going with 25 family members for a special anniversary and needed a cruise which didn't involve long flights and that was reasonably priced for ...
