This was not my first cruise with MSC,in fact it was about my 7th or 8th mostly transatlantic from Santos, Brazil to Europe apart from one to the Caribbean. Prior to this I had done a mini cruises with Fred Olsen. To be honest,after my first cruise with MSC in 2013 I was quite impressed and wanted to go again,which I did more or less ever year following. In 2014 cruising again from Brazil to ...

My Fiancé got assaulted at knifepoint while on shore and MSC didn't care.

Told 4 crew about the ordeal including reception who told us "Management has been informed". But nobody ever came to see us or even check if we were ok. Sent an email to customer service department highlighting that this was totally appalling, but they didn't see it that way - "I’m sorry to hear that you felt a lack of support from staff on board. Unfortunately, after the local police have been ...

Subject: Our experience on board the MSC Fantasia cruise ship.   Embarkation in Genoa (Italy) on November 2, 2019, disembarkation November 20   2019 in Santos (Brazil). On November 2, 2019 we flew with the KLM to Milan. That went well. Then we drove a shuttle bus to Genoa, a journey of more than 2 hours. We had a cup of coffee on the plane around 10 a.m. and then nothing more. We ...

This was our first cruise on MSC. My wife and I are both retired and experienced cruisers (32 and counting), mostly with NCL and Celebrity, also Holland America years ago. I will try to be brief, but could write pages on this Cruise from Hell. One passenger I met had three legal pages, single spaced, with complaints. Check in was a nightmare. We paid for priority boarding, but the lady just ...

Sailing from Genoa on a transatlantic that arrived today into Port Miami. Crew is very hardworking and trying to work with what they have. Biggest issue with this ship is that there is a total lack of leadership and communication. Virtually no announcements when the ship is cleared, inconsistent information regarding ports, transportation and shore excursions. This bred a toxic environment ...

My second transatlantic cruise. I had a great experience last year on another company. This year friends invited me to go back on a transatlantic and experience MSC Divina. Could not been worse. To start with there was a lot of people with a very bad cold. I got a cold. The doctor on the sheep was kind of okay. The nurse touch my prescription tablets with her bare hands. The food from the “food ...

There are growing pains -and then there is bone-deep hell. This was our first MSC cruise and probably our last. In all of our cruising, we have never seen a cruise ship filled with so many pi**ed off customers. I'll list the pros and cons for easy reading: Cons: 1) Long elevator waits/multiple elevators consistently not working 2) Lack of ship hygiene and access to hand sanitization (if ...

The worst food ever offered on any Holliday we have been on, very slow service more often forgotten. Staff to client ratio not as advertised. They use every oportunity to throw hidden charges at you. 3.95 plus service charge for water in the room somehow not included in the drinks package! Even orange juice is chargeable on an all inclusive? Watch out for the hidden service charges. Prepare to ...

We chose this cruise because of the timing and the chance to travel on a new ship. We had booked 15 months prior and booked a Grand Suite for two couples to travel together. Initially given 13001 which was sold to us as a two bedroom suite. By chance I was following Cruise Critic and discovered in August 2017 that 13001 was in fact a one bedroom suite (not suitable for 2 couples) After much ...
