I did enjoy our trip, the ship was very clean and very well taken care of which is important to me. We went on a couple excursions that were nice.  The dining room staff was so nice and tried very hard to be accommodating to my food allergy but there wasn't much they could do. I feel like there is not enough wait staff, our waiter had 4 tables on our side of the dining room and 4 on the complete other side of the room. I have celiac disease and there was very little that I could eat, in the dining room or the buffet. My menu was always different than the main menu and very limited.

MSC is a great cruise line! Its service staff was great and very friendly.  The food was amazing. I had been on this same ship 2 years before and they have improved greatly.  The entertainment at night was incredible. The shows were original and so much fun to watch. Even my small kids enjoyed it.  Thanks again for a great cruise!

This was mine and my families first cruise and we loved it. My daughter had the most fun ever. It was very windy on the 15th deck, I loved it.  The opened pool had cold water, at least for me and my mom, I wish it would have been wormed up a tad. There was an indoor pool, but I did not want to go there, it was hot and smelled like chlorine (a good thing, just too much for me). My mom had troubles to go to the hot tub, only kids and not even one available for adults only (she said)Happy

The ship is relatively new and the staff kept the ship clean and in good condition at all times. They also have a wide selection of food and they are very good. They have many activities on board that should keep you busy all day even during days where the ship is docked on the ports. If you have kids, you could drop them off at the Mini Club and they'll take good care of your kids. However, I think overall they could have more amenities for kids. The staff was generally helpful when asked but I think they could spare more smiles here and there. Overall my family and I are very satisfied.

EVERYTHING WAS GOOD...FOOD EXC8

SERVICE EXCELLENT. ..

BUT WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE WE PLAN THIS CRUISE FOR

OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY. ..

WHEN I MADE THE RESERVATION THEY ASK ME

WHAT WAS THE MOTIVE OF THE CRUISE...FOR PLAN A GIFT FOR US AND A ESPECIALLY CELEBRATION...THEY ASK ME FOR WHAT THEY I WANT A CELEBRATE..WE TOLL THEM..MARCH 29..

WE WENT TO THE DINNING ROOM. .AND WE FEEL SAD AND DISSAPOINTED. .NOBODY CARE...NO EVEN PHOTO...CAKE OR ANYTHING. .

ALSO I HAVE A PACKAGE FOR MY PICTURE...THAT NIGHT  I'M BE PLANNED FOR 3 MONTHS. ...

VERY SAD WITH MSC...LIKE THEY DON'T CARE...

WE WENT TO CUSTOMER SERVICE...THEY CARE LESS..

THAT NIGHT WAS THE WORST NIGHT. ..PLANNING EVERYTHING FOR MY ANNIVERSARY. ..FEEL FRUSTRATED. .AND VERY SAD..

WE SPEAK WITH DIFFERENT PERSONS. .THEY CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR US..

MY EXPERIENCE IN THE DINNING ROOM. .NO TOO GOOD .We Love The SHIP 

BUT THIS EXPERIENCE. ..IN THAT SPECIAL DAY...WAS TERRIBLE FOR US..AND THE MOST HURT ME..NOBODY IN THE SHOP CARE...

BLAND FOOD ~ SMALL PORTIONS ~ POOR ENTERTAINMENT

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

After over a dozen Carnival Cruises where we saw them cut back on quality we decided to try an MSC cruise to see if they were any better.

Our representative should have made us aware that when we spent the extra money for a high 13th Level balcony, we would have an obstructed view!

We were not happy with the food quality and the portions were small.

There was no "anytime" seating for the restaurants so you had to eat ether too early or too late. The food arrived cold on a few occasions. On the first formal night there was no lobster special, unless you paid extra. The surf and turf filet mignon special that they offered was a hockey puck size piece of meat and ONE shrimp. The onion soup was inedible mud. I expected more from an Italian cruise line. The buffet was pretty much the same food every day and the staff was slow to buss the tables so there was usually no place to eat without walking across the entire ship to find someone getting up and waiting for them to buss.

The entertainment was mostly pre-recorded with poor or no sets or stage design. I heard YMCA at least twice at different productions. The musical staff around the ship were also mostly playing along to recorded music.

The pool areas were taken over early in the mornings by people laying out their towels for the entire day so no chaise lounges were ever available.

They charged extra for things like gelato and bowling which they show on their website like it's all included.

They list times on the itinerary that we will spend at each port that are not actually true. When they say in their advertising we will be in San Juan from 7am till 4pm and then when we get there it's changed to 9am to 3;30 They are not being truthful and cheating you out of beach time.

ON THE PLUS SIDE: Carnival tries to sell you booze everywhere you are every day, and there is always someone trying to take your picture so they can sell it to you later. This is not the case on MSC. There were very few photographers taking photos and there was no drinking in the pools and hot tubs which means much less drunken idiots to deal with.

I don't think I would try another MSC Cruise, mostly due to the poor food portions and quality.

Don't Do IT

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Shifty, Lying, Awful cruise line! Please think twice before booking your next vacation with MSC! They give you these fabulous deals that aren't real. They don't back their deals! Though the ship is amazing ..... not if you need a mobility device! The ship is not designed with mobility devices in mind. The elevators are almost impossible for a scooter. I felt like I had to stay in my room, rather than inconvenience other guests by trying to navigate the layout of the ship on my scooter. The food is bland, boring, tasteless. All dining locations are so crowded with tables and chairs it's impossible to maneuver through them, without constantly being bumped, hit, or run into while trying to enjoy your meal! Honestly it's not worth the money you're going to pay.

There are two hot tubs on deck 16 towardsthe back of this ship that are never crowded. A fun place to hang out with a group of friends

If you want to avoid all the hustle & noise there is the Garden Pool (infinity Pool) at the back of the ship that is perfect to get away from all the madness. This is were we stayed all week.

Don't miss the Theater entertainment every night! It's Broadway on board. I live in New York City and the shows are in par with Broadway shows, no kidding! Don't miss having some pizza at the Pizza Place on the 6th Floor, the BEST PIZZA ever!
