MSC OPERA - NOT PERFECT, BUT GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY

We are British and in our sixties.  This was our 18th cruise; the 9th with MSC. We have always enjoyed the cosmopolitan experience that is indicative of this Italian line. The main national groups on this cruise were British, Dutch, German, Italian, French, Spanish & Portuguese. The multi-national aspect does not bother us, apart from the tedium of public announcements in 6 languages! This was our ...

This was the first time we had cruised with MSC, previously having sailed with Princess and Royal Caribbean. We were very nervous before we went after reading the many very mixed reviews and had prepared ourselves for the worst. Firstly we got to the terminal parking with no problem and rather than waiting on the bus to take us to the check in we just walked (5 min) and the bus took our cases. ...

I read so many bad reviews before I went that I was dreading going. ALL I CAN SAY IS, WERE THESE PEOPLE ON A DIFFERENT CRUISE SHIP! Embarkation was very straightforward and well organised, and there was 750 embarking in Southampton. Ship was very clean and well maintained and staff where constantly working to keep standards. Cabin was spotless, fresh towels everyday and constantly being asked by ...

Sailed for 10 nights on MSC Opera, had an inside cabin, which was large and well kept. Not kept as clean as some MSC cabins we've had, but OK. Food excellent, crew lovely, allegrisimo package just makes everything carefree and easy. Main restaurant was lovely, our waiters Bagus and Charlin were outstandingly efficient, a credit to MSC. The crew and bar staff work so hard, running about all day ...

My wife and I have just returned from an outstanding cruise. Yes the embarkation process took time simply due to the fact that the majority of passengers arrived at virtually the same time. However, we were all processed with courtesy and in an efficient manner. Our cabins were ready and lunch was available. The emergency drill was carried out with efficiency and all instructions were very ...

I have cruised with MSC before on Lirica and enjoyed it a lot. This cruise on Opera was just as good if not better in many ways. Firstly, I really do have to wonder why some people go on cruises because based on their reviews it is just an excuse to complain. The only advise I will offer is book a cruise and make up your own mind because some of the negative reviews are total rubbish. Don't book ...

...but the price was too good to miss and boy are we glad we booked it - we had a great time! We have cruised extensively with P&O, RCI, Celebrity and NCL. I will try to remain objective with my review (my first!) as had I believed most things that are written on this site I would never have travelled on either Opera or Poesia (Sept 2011). MSC gave us free parking at Southampton on booking, but ...

we saw this Norway itinerary advertised by a different travel agency to the one we have booked with for August at what looked like a very reasonable price so we signed up for it in an inside cabin. As we booked 7 months prior to travelling we were hoping to be given an upgrade to an ocean view which is the class of cabin we have opted for on our August trip to Iberia, but we ended up in an inside ...

MSC OPERA - JUNE 2013  Holiday Inn Hotel  Pleasant welcome, asked if we were cruising and whether we would like to face the port so we could see our ship arrive in the morning. Very good disability-friendly room for Nik, our 38 year old son, with parking directly outside the hotel. Expensive parking at £7 per night. Meal at Indian Melody - a vegetarian Indian restaurant. Unaware that this was the ...

Just arrived back from the Norwegian Fjords cruise on MSC Opera.... This was the first time we had cruised with MSC and we'll definitely go with them again. The ship was lovely and clean and there was plenty to occupy your time even though it is one of their smaller ships. All the staff seemed to be really helpful. The all inclusive package at 23 euros pppn is brilliant value and includes around ...
