Anthem of the Seas

December 2017 - Anthem of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Family Holiday Vacation

Please keep in mind that this is a very subjective review as it is my personal account. I know many love Royal Carribbean, but I was just not impressed. The last two sailings we did was on MSC which I was constantly comparing and maybe I should not have done so as there really is no comparison in my mind. I felt that we got a much better value with MSC, i.e., we had concierge level room and experiences for a reasonable charge that no other lines seem to offer. As I said, the service and cleanliness were excellent, but there there were too many little "things" that all rolled into one giant concern that I would not sail this again.

MSC Preziosa

July 2014 - MSC Preziosa to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Will Definitely Do Again

This is our second ever cruise and the second with MSC.  From all the reviews I have read, this is a very different experience than cruising on RCL, Carnival, Princess, etc.  There are no rock climbing walls, skating rinks or "neighborhoods," however, this really suits our family.  We have two teenage children who traveled with us and they really like the experience as well.  For this trip, we booked our room in the "Yacht Club" and will not ever travel any other way.  The "Yacht Club" only accommodates about 200 people and you are rarely, if ever, with all 200 people. The ship is beautiful and accommodates about 4000 passengers.  We cruise for the experience of visiting other countries and cultures and get off the ship at each port and don't spend time sunbathing or some of the other games that the staff was leading out by the pools.  The other big plus for us was that children 17 and under cruise at a very reduced rate.  We did try two of the specialty restaurants that are offered for an extra cost, but were not all that impressed.  The food served in our dining room was very good.  However, if you are looking for meat and potatoes every night, an Italian cruise line is probably not the way to go.  We liked the shows, although music was mostly in Italian, still very enjoyable.  Other reviewers have complained about excursions on this line, but we enjoyed each and every one we went on.  Can't wait to do this again.
