The embarcation went smooth and quick, notwithstanding the COVID control. We had a cabin on deck 15, aurea experience. The cabin is well equiped. The bathroom was very small. Once on board you’re attacked by personnel trying to sell the ‘spéciality restaurants. It is sometimes difficult to understand the official announcements since they sprak far to quick. As always on these big Ships the ...

Having sailed with MSC numerous times on several different MSC ships, our group were looking forward to our 9 night cruise. Embarkation at Malaga a nightmare. Having obtained our PCR certificates, our luggage was put onto the ship without anyone bothering to check that we had the necessary paperwork. As it was a requirement by MSC to have the PCR test 72 hours prior to boarding, you would have ...

We arrived at our assigned time on Friday. Generally, boarding was smooth. However, the MSC website says one thing about testing, but the policy differed when we boarded. While the web site stated that IF we did not have a test within 48 hours of boarding we would be required to have a test at boarding. We went out of our way to get a test within the proscribed time, but were told at boarding ...

This was our 5th MSC cruise and 3rd in Yacht Club (we have taken 30+ cruises from Carnival to Regent and a suite on the QE2). The prior 4 were out of Miami therefore we are not sure which differences were COVID-related and which relate to the different ship or location. Booking this cruise was a "roll of the dice" after three prior cancellations. We were not sure that it would actually take place ...

We sailed on the 15 night repositioning cruise from Liverpool to Genoa. I have sailed with MSC several times previously including on the Grandiosa during the Covid Pandemic so I had an I deal what to expect and up until this cruise it was one of my favourite cruise lines. During the cruise there were 2 stops in Southampton and we were prepared for the several thousand British boarding for a ...

Is MSC the worst cruise line?

I don't know whether it's the worst but it sure is among the ones I travelled on.To me good and imaginative food is important and the food on MSC is pathetic.In the buffet pasta and pizza everywhere.No ethnic food, no smoked salmon or pates, no decent selection of cheese.Its more like a factory canteen .The cherry on the cake is treating ice cream as if its an expensive delicacy and non existing ...

We thought the drinks package was pretty good (premium) so no complaints about that. The staff in general work very hard, they are very friendly and try to engage as much as possible and they really make you feel welcome. I big shout out to the staff at the Champagne bar who looked after us really well and also the two girls who worked in the Master Tavern so if you happen to go to these ...

We had originally planned a cruise on another line, which was cancelled. And a second, which was cancelled. And a third, which was cancelled. Our cruise on the MSC Grandiosa was a happy accident. We sailed from Barcelona. MSC embarks and disembarks passengers at ports along the way, which I had never experienced before. Disembarkation, in particular, was much nicer this way than ...

We decided to take advantage of cruise credits and some other vacation plan changes and take a cruise on the MSC Seaside. We took this cruise during the COIVD pandemic so we were managing expectations around that. All in all we had a fine cruise but not one that makes me think MSC will be our choice cruise line of the future. Embarkation was definitely the worst part of our cruise experience, the ...
