We boarded Seaview at Genoa for the 7 day Med cruise, visiting Naples, Sicily, Malta, Barcelona and Marseilles. Having previously cruised with MSC back in 2019 on Magnifica, we were keen to try them again as we had a very good experience back then, plus MSC were offering a hefty discount for NHS staff, and when I called to book, they also upgraded our drinks package. Embarkation in Genoa was ...

Family with 2 kids (10+12), Fantastica cabin category. The ship had only 50% utilization, but the buffet-restaurants were absolut full! Too many people, bad service, food was below average. Dinner was nice, food was ok, on the service-managment they could also work more! We expected much more than this for the price… Embarkation was well done organized: from arriving to arriving ...

My "big" cruise is going to take place in January 2022 and I was really in need for a break when this MSC offer came by. Travelling solo in a balcony cabin for the wonderful amount of € 1.000 was almost too good to be true. I liked the stops we made on our way through Northern Europe, it was a pity that due to weather circumstance we had to skip Warnemunde and arrived a day earlier in Kiel. The ...

My husband and I had a good time on the cruise. We went to 4 theater shows, all very good. The performers were all quite professional. We also went dancing, learnt a bit of waltz and rumba, it was fun. The only problem was the dance classes did not follow the printed schedule, so we had to wait for over 30 minutes for one of the classes. We ate at the main dining room, food was ok. Staff were all ...

Well after 73 cruises I can finally say never again on MSC. My pros were : Embarkation in Barcelona and disembarkation in Barcelona Our wait staff in main dining room (I use the term dining room loosely) Our cabin steward was good. Ship was beautiful. Our cabin was ok too, although closet placement was a poor design. Cons: Generally unfriendly staff on board (language ...

The ship is beautiful but foods, both in restaurant and buffet, are terrible. Food in restaurant is far from enough and I had to eat again in buffet. Food quality, both in restaurant and buffet are far from tasty. We were originally arranged sitting in Silver Dolphin restaurant same table with strangers while many tables are still not occupied. Excursions are professional organized. We were ...

First things first the food is disgusting,the service is really bad, the workers disturb you 24/7 with food/drink packages even in a middle of your dinner... The cruise itself is cheap but everything else is expensive Me and my wife got a reserved table (which cannot be changed) near 6 other strangers we don’t know You have to wait for about 10 minutes for the lift to arrive We got a ...

Beautiful Ship Let Down By Service

Review for MSC Seaview to Europe - Western Mediterranean

The ship is a wonderful modern ship with fantastic features, but the staff let it down with their priorities being maintaining the areas where they work forgetting the customers. The food quality is not what I expect from a ship of this size and quality/cost of cruise. The speciality restaurants are extremely expensive. We have been cruising for over 16 years with various cruise lines (some budget ...

We were on board from Rome to La Spezia (got off early to meet up with friends and family in Tuscany). The good: - Check in was quick and painless - The cabin (0913) was fantastic, we had a 'restricted view' balcony but honestly didn't spend much, if any, time on the balcony - Entertainment was great - the theatre shows were just the right amount of time - The €10 drinks package was ...
