My family of 25 decided to celebrate my mother birthday on a cruise to Europe. What a disappointment. We flew from New Jersey, New York, Florida and Georgia for this joyous occasion. This ship seems to be only concerned about packing people on a ship and dropping off to different stops without having space to have any entertainment. 1. They nickel and dime you for everything (soda, ice ...

Cruise critic, notes from the brand new MSC Bellisima... The newest of the MSC fleet, Bellisima is massive, wide, and very, very crowded. Ship. There are advantages to its size, but many disadvantages too! The price for its size, comes as opposite to your logic, the balcony suites!! Shoe boxes, (better) have been reduced in width to accommodate more rooms (boxes)! The design has changed ...

We have just returned from a 7 day cruise in the med (Barcelona Marseilles Genova Naples Messina and Valletta) and we were quite disappointed with the MSC Bellissima. It is not as beautiful as the MSC Seaside and there is no 'vibe' . The main attraction is supposed to be the 80-metre-long LED dome which turns out to be an overcrowded shopping mall. The Cirque du Soleil at Sea is supposed to be ...

Ruined our honeymoon

Review for MSC Seaview to Mediterranean

We were celebrating our honeymoon, as we boarded the ship the staff came across as rude and judgemental. After trying to ask for help to locate where we needed to go we had to ask 3 people, one less helpful than the other. Since we have heard only good things about cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean, we decided to give MSC a chance, what a mistake. The food was disppointing, breakfast was okay, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

The boat is amazing. Brand new. That was our first crew. The client care for “business” things is massively negative : Wi-Fi for such a ridiculous expensive price, no business center. Excursions only here to take money from the clients : we found the same kind of excursion that MSC proposed for half the price (we asked for a private taxi for a trip). We also asked when we booked that ...

Potential there, but not realized

Review for MSC Seaside to Transatlantic

User Avatar
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We wanted to experience an Inaugural Cruise and the Seaside transatlantic from Trieste to Miami fit the bill. The ship is beautiful and glitzy and very stable--sometimes we didn't even feel like we were moving. The shows are extraordinary and the Jungle area for children and the child in each of us was wonderful. The dancing instructors were fabulous, especially the Argentinian Dance Academy ...

Cabin was great Ship was clean and beautiful Shows were good Very disappointed that Cirque de Soliel was having tech difficulties and therefore never performing Staff was ok. Some were great (bars), Dinner waiters were not attentive. Service was ok, Carnival does a much better job Buffet was good Dinner was not good at all. Pastas were undercooked, everything was bland. ...

If you want to feel welcome on a Cruise Ship then don't choose MSC Meravigila as you never feel in the least bit welcome particularly in the main dining room, on our cruise in was Waves where the staff were the most incompetent,rude,surly waiting staff I have ever come across in any dining establishment that I have been in with a very small exception of them in any way helpful or nice, it was ...
