Sail with the MSC line

It was another year of travel. And this year we decided to travel once more on an MSC line. We had been doing it for several years for the least 15 years or more. It was delightful. It was the right size ship with the right group of visitors as well. Not too many at all. Plus it is always nice to have the feelings that you are someplace new and different. It is the mix of a crowd of neighbors from ...

MOODY BLUES CRUISE THE WORST!

I took this cruise because it was a rock n roll cruise. The problem was the Moody Cruise staff. They were rude and abrasive to the passengers. The head of security was seen grabbing a woman by the arm and pulling her up from a chair because he was in a rage for some reason. He should have been charged with a criminal assault' and fired! They got after a senior passenger who was moving as quickly ...

For our eighth cruise, my husband and I decided to try MSC for the first time because of the itinerary, which included two islands we had not visited before (Guadeloupe and Dominican Republic). We have sailed with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity in the past. On this cruise we were traveling with a toddler and my husband’s elderly parents. Honestly, I was a bit apprehensive considering all the ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We wished to visit the Caribbean islands, and also to celebrate my husbands birthday & retirement. We liked the idea that we would fly to Barbados to pick up the ship. We had only been on one cruise before and did not like being at sea for the first 3 days and the last 3 as we had found it quite boring. Flying seemed the best idea for us. The cabin ...

This was our 5th MSC Cruise and as always it exceeded our expectations. We embarked and disembarked in Barbados. Embarkation was very quick and our cabin was ready and waiting. Disembarkation was excellent. Our return flight wasn't till 17.10 so we were allowed to stay on board and make full use of all amenities and our cabin or get off and return until our departure at 14.00. Our cabin was ...

Some good points - nice balcony cabin, very pleasant staff in all areas, good itinerary visiting lots of Caribbean islands, food and service quite good in main restaurant (where we ended up having 3 meals a day) and drinks package worked out well for us - bad points: buffet restaurant - avoided all cruise, it was like an overcrowded bad works canteen, jostling for space, trying to find a table to ...

If I'd been told that the crew were working to rule after a nasty trade dispute I'd understand. Otherwise why be so rude, inefficient and unco-operative? Food always cold, nasty smell on upper decks and receptionists from the Soviet school of hospitality. Like many passengers caught a nasty cold for second half of the trip. We booked two trips. One was perfuntuary but on if youbdid your ...

Great itinerary but service is becoming worse and worse.

Plus: - very convenient fly&cruise package: MSC took care of our suitcase which was delivered straight to our cabin without the need to pick it up from the belt at the airport and carry it on the bus. This is the main reason we keep cruising MSC. - great itinerary with long port days abd extensive excursion programme - large pools Minus: - poor service, deteriorating as years go by. ...
