Gorgeous ship, need to work out some kinks.
"Specialty dining was excellent. The buffet was very good. The dining room was marginal at best. Interior Fantastica room was great. It was awesome to go into the casino and ALL table games were non-smoking...."Read More

The ship is huge, beautiful and well decorated. We had an inside cabin, which was about the same size as on any cruise line, but there were only two very small drawers and we had to ask for Kleenex. There was no coffee cream and the "juice" as flavored water although you could get real juice from the bar waiters who circulate in the buffet area. The entertainment was mediocre although there were ...

My wife and I cruised on the MSC Seaside from Feb. 29th to Mar. 7th. This was my second cruise (went on Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas about 14 years ago) and my wife’s first. We usually go to Cuba in April for a week but after seeing the deal offered by Sunwing Vacations we decided we could not pass up this cruise. We lucked out on direct flight from Toronto to Miami, inside cabin and Easy ...

It looked great on the pics, and having done the Pacific Dawn prior to its update , we thought it will be a great experience. But at least the Pacific Dawn match the food according to what port they anchored. Restaurants are overrated compared to the options in the Buffet restaurants. What really killed the mood was the constant smell of toilet around the lifts and the announcement of 5 languages ...

We chose this ship because of the price and itinerary. Embarkation and disembark went well. For disembark we met in the theater, sat with our color assignment and we're escorted directly along to our luggage and transfer shuttle. We booked an inside cabin and found it quite spacious compared to other ships we were on. We ate at the main dining room twice and the deck 8 buffet for ...

It was our fisrt cruise and joyed it a lot. The service from the dinning room from Sandipan and Olvin was friendly and excelent. We had room service from a Madagascar women name Sofia that was very excellent also. The embarkation was well done and for disembarkation we would had took express walk out because we were departing early in the morning for our flight since the luguage was only bring out ...

We are experienced cruisers who have traveled many times to other continents, and the cruise on the Seaside was our third and fourth MSC cruise. This review is about two separately booked back to back cruises, but not much changed between the two weeks except the passenger composition and itinerary. We really like the Divina (a ten-day cruise in the Eastern Caribbean) and found the Grandiosa in ...

MSC Seaside was the worst cruise ship we have ever taken. This is our 9th cruise and first (and only) with MSC. The food was fair at best. We stopped going to the formal dining room after the third night because the food was so poor. The buffet was a better option. The room often had strong sewer smells especially when we were at port. Some crew members were unhappy and short with cruisers. They ...

This is a good cheap cruise if you are a beginner to cruising. If you have cruised before and are looking for service and quality experience this cruise line lacks in this area. The staff is very overwhelmed in all areas and is lacking which makes long waits for ordering drinks, getting quality housekeeping and quality service in the restaurants is definitely lacking. the ship is beautiful the ...

The reason why I give this Cruise a 2 is because the quality of the food was horrible. Do not I repeat Do not eat the desserts on this ship it's either dry or mushy. This was our first time sailing on MSC and we were excited. The entertainment is excellent best ever. The staff was great also. I give a huge shout out to Julie's on deck 6 in the coffee shop. He was awesome and had great customer ...
