First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

We chose this cruise for many reasons. It started in the U.K., an easy and inexpensive place to reach from the U.S., and also because we were looking for something where American's would be few and finally the price was very competitive. But the problems with MSC began almost immediately. Their web site is just awful! The site almost seemed designed to confuse and frustrate the user. One example, ...

We chose this cruise because it was inexpensive. Also we had the drinks package. This ship does not cater for English people. The cabin TV had 2 channels in English, both news channels, out of forty available. Little things like no tea spoons in the buffet restaurant, just wooden stirers like McDonald's. Also no brown sauce, and the wine glasses were plastic. This is not 5 star ...

Not for us, the ship is large and holds over 4000 people and at times you know this, it has many different nationals, Germans being the dominant guests. The ship is very clean and well presented and the cabins are spacious , we had a balcony which was nice. Food is plentiful in the self service section, but not always very hot, but it can be difficult to find a seat. We only went to the main ...

This was booked as a short break that fit in with a visit to Hamburg followed by a 3 night mini cruise back to the UK. My expectation levels were not high an, mainly due to that, I was not disappointed. For such a large ship it did feel somewhat claustrophobic - not helped by ceiling heights that seemed somewhat lower than on most other cruise ships I have been on.the lack of dining choices and ...

We chose this cruise as a way to experience an inside cabin - we had always had a balcony before, but seeing all of the great offers available for insides we thought a two night break would be the ideal way to give it a go, and if we didn't like it then there was no great loss. The cabin was spacious and well appointed with shower room. I hear gripes of people who don't like shower curtains as ...

Msc was a big disappointment. The fact that they do not have ice tea or lemonade for you to drink is ridiculous. They do not cater to American cruisers.Americans like to have coffee with dinner at a formal dinning room, it was not available and they would not go get it. The portions and choices in the main dinning room were horrible. They did not have very many activities to kids and they were ...
