We are a family of 4, been cruising for several years now. Was our first time on mein schiff 6 and definetely the last. The advertisments for this cruise show smiling people having a good time but none such person was in sight on this cruise. In all our travel we have never experienced anything like that. During the whole week we were treated like rubbish by other passengers. Our son was even physically abused by an old man in the pool. He pushed him under the water and smashed him to the wall of the pool. All of this happened because a 10yr old boy splashed some water while swimming. By the way the man was over 1m away. When reported we were told that the man was pissed off. As if it is acceptable to physically and verbally abuse children. Cruise personnel were helpful and polite. Food choice was good. Hygiene excellent. Balcony cabin was small for 4 persons. Was always clean and ready. No entertainment during the day which made days at sea boring. Shore excursions were taken with maltese rep. Most passengers we met were selfless and arrogant, so to all people who would like a nice relaxing holiday for the family don't even try to consider going on a Mein schiff. Mein schiff is catered for german people only and not for any other nationality. Read Less

We enjoyed every day of our cruise. Food was excellent and service in all restaurants was great and crew was very helpful and friendly. Even thow we were an English speaking passengers. Ship is very clean and well organized. Bit disappointed that the show are compliantly in German. Yes we knew that and been told, but since there was a good number of English speaking passengers I suggest that English will be included in the shows, at least 25 % of the show. In this was English speaking passengers feel part of the show and not as second class. Feeling excluded it's not a very nice feeling. We will be travelling with Mein schiff Herts again next September as we are very happy with the service. Only the entertainment which we were disappointing. We hope and wish that something will be done in this regard. It's great to feel part of the family on board. Read Less

My wife and I chose this cruise based on Main Schiff reputation for excellence and because of the ports we would be visiting and the excursions available. I think the ports of call are great, and Main Schiff has a strength in being port heavy for travelers who like to maximize time exploring countries like me. There was good onboarding and offboarding during ports of call, organized and efficient. We would go back just to see some of the crew that waited on us they were so wonderful. We took mostly tours from independent operators as we got off the ship ... I loved all the different public rooms. So many places to gather and socialize. Service was excellent and the crew aimed to please. Nice! This was a great experience and would be lucky if we do it again. Gorgeous ship, great food, excellent service . Thank You !!! Read Less

Status of cabins was comparatively excellent, as well as their cleanliness. In larger diners, presentation of food was repetitive and one of the family caught a stomach bug. In other restaurants the fare was much better and recommendable. There was only a duo and a group presenting the same music on different ship levels and this was somewhat mediocre. All inclusive aspect was very positive. Bus on one of the excursions did not have air-conditioning working and this was eventually replaced. Some uncontrolled children in the pools, as well as persons who drank too much marred the expected relaxation atmosphere. Worst experience was use of the warped steps of the main pool where a family member slipped and was quite bruised. This was not a one-off incident as other persons were observed sipping from the same steps, however administration exonerated themselves by stating that they observed Health & Safety precautions although in my opinion better maintenance was wanting.

Outstanding cruise... we booked the junior suite, huge room, balcony and bathroom, free mini-bar and gifts almost every night (chocolate, lotions, herbal teas, etc.). Access to the X-lounge, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks fully covered. Great restaurants, Palatial gym, super shows... Staff was really friendly and helpful... The ships are German so the primary language is German. However all the staff speak English and safety announcements are made in both German and English. There were several English, Italian and French speakers on the cruise and we had no problems understanding the crew... Also, no room service - but there is a bistro open 24/7. Basically, the best cruise we've ever had. We liked it so much we are going back on another cruise next year... I recommend this cruise line to anyone, don't worry about the German language...

We embarked on Mein Schiff on 7 th August from Malta to East Mediterranean. We had an inside cabin(quad) since we were travelling with children. Cabin size was adequate though on other cruise liners a cabin of the same category was larger. We were very disappointed with the quality of food. We were expecting the same dining experience that we had on other cruise liners. The fish restaurant was very good but you have to book and it is almost fully booked. Regards activities, almost nothing is organized. No animation or games by the pool,no table tennis tournaments. Since we spent 2 days at sea because we didn't disembark at Mykonos because the sea was a bit rough, it got very boring. Also the ship is not very stable.It moves a lot with the least sea swell. Entertainment in the theatre was quite ok but it was not provided everyday. If someone asks me if I would go on a Mein Schiff cruise again, the answer would be a definately NO. The only thing which is better on Mein Schiff which you don't find on other ships is that most drinks including cocktails are inclusive. In fact, for a non drinker like me, it was the only thing that kept us from being totally disappointed. Read Less
