Amazing again

This is the 4th cruise we have done with MSC, and it was wonderful again. We upgraded to Yacht Club again and the service, food and accommodation were all lovely. The staff are very attentive and always seem to be there at the right time. The ship is immaculate and they always seem to be cleaning and working so hard to maintain a high standard of cleanliness. We dined in the restaurant every ...

Having very recently completed a cruise on the MSC Presioza, I feel compelled to write a review because I read so many negative ones prior to booking mine, that I was somewhat apprehensive about my choice. But I just have to say the cruise was excellent and I have very few negative things to say about my experience, if any. So here are the pros and cons: Cons: Internet is very expensive! I ...

MSC NEVER AGAIN!

We chose this MSC Cruise (our first with MSC) as the dates suited and the ports were very appealing to us. As this was our 8th cruise (enjoyed all 7 previous cruises with RCL (5), Carnival (1) and Princess (1)) we understood that all cruises get both good and bad reviews so we decided to book despite many bad reviews. What a mistake we made! All the bad reviews re MSC service and food quality are ...

Terrible Service

The only thing that was satisfying on this ship was the overall appearance of the boat. Service was terrible. Ports were so far from shore. Food was not the greatest. Activities-not too many on board. Me and my Fiance took this cruise for our birthday celebration, boy were we in for a surprise. We did book last minute. A week before the cruise date. After paying an arm and a leg, we ...

We were very pleased with our first MSC Cruise so we decided to Cruise with them again . Our ship was the MSC Proezia one of the newest MSC Ships . We chose a balcony stateroom on the 11th deck . The room was typically small but no smaller than any other cruise line , it was well appointed and comfortable . The passengers were a real mix of ages and nationalities , lots of Italian , German and ...

Great Itinerary but Bad Service Throughout

Overall the ship itself is fine. The amenities are plentiful. The room is adequate (not large but not terribly small either). Here's a breakdown of each item: Itinerary - Excellent ports of call. They were all about the same, though. It would have been nice to mix it up a bit, by throwing in a port with a nice beach. Instead all of these ports were more of the same with old city, nice ...

We arrived early so embarkation was good and speedy, all staff we encountered were smiley and friendly. Very Italian atmosphere on ship, many Italian cruisers! One big criticism and it's about fellow guests, why do so few use hand gel which is available in so many places, people just walk past as if it's not for them! We found food in buffet fine, a bit crowded at peak times and bit short of ...

Better than expected, but paying for water?

Having read quite a few poor reviews of this cruise company I had low expectations of my Mediterranean Christmas cruise but overall was pleasantly surprised. There are certainly faults with MSC that could be easily rectified if the management felt that customer opinion was of any value and they were prepared to act upon it. This was my third cruise having previously cruised to Alaska with ...

We are experienced cruisers with 20+ cruises (Celebrity, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Holland American, NCL, Carnival and now MSC). This is our first cruise with MSC in Europe and very disappointed with overall experience. We have cruised on Pricess in Europe before, we expect similar experienced from MSC. We felt MSC try to squeeze every dollar out of you. Free things that you come to expect on ...

Decided to write review after having read many bad reviews regarding the MSC Preziosa. I have cruised on Princess several times, the last being on the Royal Princess Inaugural cruise of the Mediterranean 2013. I have also cruised on Carnival and NCL cruise lines. I was not expecting MSC to be of a high standard after reading negative reviews. I was pleasantly surprised during my 7 night cruise ...
