Expected disappointment based on last trip--got what we expected

Last trip on MSC Divina we said, "never again". This was based on noisy, pushy crowed public spaces and on the awful food. This year on MSC Seaside we had a very good price point offer and felt we couldn't resist giving another chance. Nothing has changed. We found public spaces such as the elevators and all handrails to be dirty and smudged. The dining room floor was a mess. ...

My partner and I decided on a cruise for our holiday this year. We did the Eastern Caribbean 7 day cruise out of Miami direct from Ottawa. The embarkation went very well considering the number of people arriving at the same time. The ship is beautiful with all the glass, mirrors and tile. We had an oceanview cabin and it was perfect for us. The cabin was kept clean by our very good cleaner. ...

WORST CRUISE I HAVE EVER TAKEN

The actual ship itself was gorgeous. I was not impressed that there was no outer deck that you could walk completely around the ship as a walking track. The common areas were not kept clean. You would often walk past a table full of drink glasses/coffee cups. There was not a constant reminder that they were cleaning. I was very upset that sailing on an Italian ship, the cappuccino bar was ALWAYS ...

Needed Short cruise of Caribbean for large family group.This was at the right time and very reasonable price. We have sailed with MSC before and knew they were good in Europe with Musica so time to try a US trip.It is a great new ship with lots of facilities for children with lagoon pool and play park. We found the dining options great doing buffet for breakfast and dinner and Dining room ...

I am a diamond member with MSC and I love their ships and all the benefits that come with being a diamond member. The cruise critic event was top notch and I am glad I finally signed up for one. I got a great opportunity to talk to the officers. Great ship, great food, best entertainment on the seas. As a solo traveler this time I got a little lonely, but that is not a reflection on MSC. I enjoyed ...

This was our first MSC cruise, having cruised exclusively with Royal Caribbean. Family members had cruised on the Seaside and recommended it. The price was right so we booked. Technology: We tried booking shows the first day on the touch screens around the ship and they weren't working. We eventually were able to using the cabin TV. Most of the TV channels had no signal until the third day ...

Thank you Cruise Critc for meet and mingle. It was really nice.. meeting the captain and crew and their roles of the ship along with having little treats and champagne Beautiful .. However I suggest name tags so you can meet those you’ve been chatting with. I stayed in an ocean view it was very roomy and nice. Problem one though I found it odd that there was no mattress cover on bed I ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My wife and I recently took our first cruise. Long time residents of Florida but a very busy life raising our children prevented us from traveling before. After 25 years of marriage, we booked the first available cruise that fit our schedule. The MSC Seaside was an excellent choice. We were extremely happy with the accommodations. We had a rear balcony room that was more than adequate. ...

The ship is pretty, the food is good, the crew is pleasant. BUT There is constant pressure to buy "Specialty Dining" packages at inflated prices, excursions at inflated prices, jewelry, perfume, art and spa treatments. Very insistent pressure. If you cruise at the "Bella" experience (cheapest "level"), there are parts of the ship you cannot access and the bar staff will be much less ...

This was a free cruise for me so I took my grand daughter and her best friend, This is just my opinion, everyone has there own. MSC does not do designated times check in so you have the zig zag line to wait in a couple of times. Took us a little over an hour to get all checked in and onboard. Did not want our picture taken before boarding but they would not allow us to just walk around it ...
