Great ports but the service and ship were a huge disappointment

Where to begin… First, thing to know is that even though you may have paid for excursions in advance. Excursions are not confirmed by the ship until the night before the excursion port at 8pm. Which means you may have your plans cancelled at the last minute and have very few options to rebook as the good tours are already full. This was very frustrating as we had 2 tours cancelled the night ...

This was our second cruise with msc. Once again I cannot fault them. Everything was amazing from the food to the price of the cruise. The staff are so friendly and so helpful. A very special praise to Noman from the bar service. He just went above and beyond for us. We ate in the sliver dolphin our waiters Mark and Gerldine were lovely. Full of knowledge from wine to the food. The food was ...

First and last cruise with MSC. Lovely ship, fantastic facilities, however ........ To start off with - our cabin was changed from the one we had booked, without any notification or explanation. Cabin was same category but not our preferrede deck. We were not aware that MSC pick up/drop off at every port of call. Seemed like a ferry. Not international passenger base on this ...

We just finished a 7-day Mediterranean cruise onboard MSC Opera. This was our sixth cruises overall (three on Princess and one on Carnival) and second on MSC since last December. Embarkment: Easiest of all cruises. We were scheduled to board Opera at 1 pm in Barcelona, but arrived at the terminal around 12 pm. There were about a dozen people lining up and we got onto the ship in no more than 10 ...

Excursions let down.

I chose this cruise because of the relatively low single supplement, its date of sailing and, in particular, the interesting cities it was visiting. I was disappointed with the way MSC cancelled the two excursions I had booked to see two of the cities. There is plenty to praise about the ship. I particularly appreciated the space in the public areas despite the large number of guests on ...

This was our 8th MSC cruise and we actually booked our next one while on board. That being said, this ship needs some work. The dining room chairs were always falling apart. The shower drain didn't drain well. AND this was wasn't up to the MSC standard we have become accustomed to. There are no shrimp cocktails on the menu at dinner. When asked, we got the standard answer of "THIS IS A ...

Just disembarked off the Grandiosa, stayed in a Yacht Club deluxe suite. Cabin 18014 was below pool deck, only heard moving of chairs once early in the morning. The service in the YC was good. Cabin was always cleaned promptly. Restaurant wait staff was good. We had the same waiter each night. Bartenders in Top Sail were great. The bad- entertainment was a major disappointment. Strings was ...

The ship itself is very beautiful, well structured and cleaned! There are many public spaces available for guests, different bars and outside areas where people can stay and enjoy it with not so much crowd. The staff is generally very nice - sometimes some of them are too indiscrete especially for solo travelers and this doesen't help to make people feel comfortable, this is something that must ...

This was our 7th cruise with MSC but the first on the Magnifica, which we choose because of the great itinerary to Casablanca, Santa Cruz, Madeira, Malaga, Marseilles and Genoa and the ability to spend 3 nights before the cruise in Barcelona a city we had not visited, but thoroughly enjoyed, a great start to the holiday. Embarkation in Barcelona was swift, seemingly only 400+ passengers were ...

We found a good deal and brought the extended family. The good: the ship is good enough, lots of cafes mostly closed when you need them. Staff overall good and helpful, some exceptions. Cabins are small and older looking. TV like a postage stamp with white noise. The bad: The buffet is like a crocodile feeding ground. Food mainly carbs and mostly poor in taste. Although the manager was very ...
