After reading some of the reviews, we were so pleasantly surprised to find all the staff were really very good! If you take the time to exchange pleasantries, they certainly remember you and are happy to engage with you. We were amazed at the different nationalities of all the staff and the fact they could easily interact with guests in several languages! Impressive, compared to our uni-lingual ...

We chose this cruise as we saw a documentary on MSC. It is a great new ship with great rooms and great staff. There are no sea days so there is never really any overcrowded areas. We booked the Aurea Experience and upgraded to the Premium Plus drinks package, (Well worth it). We suffered a bit of jet lag so didn't get the full benefit of the upgrade but still went pretty close. With Aurea ...

Timing and port selection of cities which we had not visited,Last minute booking to fit a time slot which opened up.The food was not up to previous standards and the one hour time slot did not allow time for coffee. Thje buffet food was same quality as dining room. Unlike previous cruises there was constant nickle and dining going on. The drink packages and internet charges were high .Expect ...

Friendly staff but noisy and dirty ship

The ship is huge but the pools are few and small and get overcrowded. There is limited shade options when parents need to keep an eye on their bathing children. Buffet is ok, choose the 16th floor for all meals if eating this way. Do not go for early dining option in restaurant - not enough time to make it from excursion/ pool/ lunch. Portion sizes at dinner in restaurants are minute. Excursions: ...

We chose this cruise for itinerary, and that it was a new ship, and the price is quite low - but it was awful. Overall, I have to say that it take finesse to manage these big ships in a way that make the passengers think they're having a good time through the day and night, even though they are occasionally waiting in lines etc. The big American lines manage these things well as a rule, but ...

First off, when we arrived I checked the sheets/bed as I always do and found tons of hair in the sheets. The bed was made so I’m confused as to how there was hair in the sheets? Did they remake the bed but not change the sheets?? I called guest services to have the sheets changed. Room was not very clean. I dropped my chapstick on the floor on the side of the bed and when I picked it up, I also ...

Too many hidden charges

The ship was great. Food was excellent. Don’t book fun zone because you get credit and once used up you need to purchase more. Drink packages are a joke. One buys everyone does and if you want a drink that is .50c over your drink package they charge you full amonubt and don’t tell you. Crew people very nice. Pools are all 6 ft deep so you hang to the edge to stay in pool. Lots of hidden costs. ...

We chose Seaview on 7/3-11 for ship and ports. We are experienced travelers and were very disappointed. First Cannes was a nightmare to embarbark/disembark from because of the ferries (did not know this until too late). Once on, being English speaking, we found ourselves among a very few (I am going to guess less than 5%) of passengers we could converse with. Ok, moved past that. We were ...

Our experience aboard MSC Seaview was generally very positive and we have excellent memories. However, there were some things we felt fell short. I’ll give you the good and the disappointing bit keep in mind we had a wonderful time. We are experienced American cruisers ha omg been on about 15 Caribbean cruises. We have been to Europe a few times but this was our first cruise. We also brought ...

I was very nervous about cruising with MSC. I had cruised the Med with Norwegian 4 years ago and loved it but this time we were taking our 3 adult children and one son-in-law and I had been reading mixed reviews. My chiropractor here in Atlanta cruises with MSC and RC a couple of times a year and she was the one who recommended MSC. All 6 of us loved this ship and would travel with MSC again. The ...
