Gorgeous New Ship, Good First Sailing

I had the opportunity to sail on the Seaside on her crossing over, and by and large I was quite impressed. The balcony staterooms felt roomy, although storage was a bit of an issue. The shows on board were very good, and I really enjoyed the specialty dining on board. Loved that most of the restaurants were in one area of the ship with a shared bar, it felt very deluxe - although the bar service ...

A brand new MSC ship straight out of Monfalcone shipyard - the same shipyard that buiilds Carnival and most other modern cruise line ships. Finally a cruise ship with an truly innovative design. The external areas are amazing, there's nothing like that on any other ship, period. Huge sundecks, much wider than usual, an amazing acquapark, longest ever zipline at sea, and my very favorite spot on ...

Having sailed with MSC before, my wife and I thought a cruise on the new MSC Seaside would be great. How wrong we were. This was our 14th cruise with various cruise lines so we know what to expect on a cruise. This ship was not ready to sail anywhere. The toilets overflowed or did not flush; also taps in the restrooms were not always working. Some of the staircases were taped off, one of the ...

There are growing pains -and then there is bone-deep hell. This was our first MSC cruise and probably our last. In all of our cruising, we have never seen a cruise ship filled with so many pi**ed off customers. I'll list the pros and cons for easy reading: Cons: 1) Long elevator waits/multiple elevators consistently not working 2) Lack of ship hygiene and access to hand sanitization (if ...

VcI just love cruising especially the longer cruises. This is our 20 th cruise and it is one of the best company which have a lot of cruises we love because we love going to different countries and also all of the other MSC SHIPS are fabulous but this was not good for us this time, There ships are just fantastic but they made a big mistake with the cabins in this ship and they need to get this ...

We wanted to experience an Inaugural Cruise and the Seaside transatlantic from Trieste to Miami fit the bill. The ship is beautiful and glitzy and very stable--sometimes we didn't even feel like we were moving. The shows are extraordinary and the Jungle area for children and the child in each of us was wonderful. The dancing instructors were fabulous, especially the Argentinian Dance Academy ...

No such thing as a bad cruise, right?

I will preface my comments with some background. This cruise was our 15th. Until recently, we selected cruises based on cost but now that we are both retired, itinerary and season are weighed. Our favorite ship so far is the MSC Poesia. Our favorite cruise destination is a toss up between Alaska and the Baltic. Our family tent camped for decades so we are used to adjustments and getting by ...

We booked in August 2016 for a December 2017 sailing because, its a new ship, Italian food and crew (I'm Italian). Good ports of call. Sanitary conditions were deplorable, it was not mandatory to sanitize hands entering dinning rooms like other ships.. At the buffet passenger handling food and putting it back. Food servers not wearing gloves. After a week my wife had severer diarrhea Doctor ...

Our trip started bad when we arrived on the bus in Trieste and the MSC employees did nothing to help a bunch of older people with their luggage. The sidewalk was not smooth so the wheels on the suitcases did not roll. We were allowed two suitcases each and some hand luggage. When entering the building I tripped on a piece of carpet that was bubbling up and fell onto my knees. After two hip ...

The breakfast, lunch and dinners were the same each day at both of the buffets. The lunch buffet was the same as the dinner buffet. I couldn't wait to get off the boat in the different ports so I could enjoy some good food. The buffet food wasn't of very good quality. The quality of the food was of the same quality as a person could find at any cafeteria. IHOP has a better selection ...
