MSC has been criticized in the past for not understanding the American Market. Well the company announced just last month that over the next few years, it will build three new mega ships each holding over 4,000 passengers. First to be built is the Seaside. The three ships will sail out of Miami cruising the Caribbean. I hope that these new ships will be just as elegant as their other ships. English will be the main language spoken on the ships.
MSC to build 3 new mega ships geared to the Amnerican market
We have seen on this site, quite a few comments on the tendency to go big or stay home regarding the ships that are coming out now. Personally, I like smaller more intimate venues, but there seems to be a market for large crafts. Somebody's marketing is telling them that this is the way to go. I just wonder what the critics will say.
I think it is great. Hopefully MSC will continue to to monitor feed back and keep growing. Having 3 more ships in the Caribbean may help to keep the cruises reasonable priced. On port stop in Grand Turk we ported next to MSC. I talked to people that were on the MSC ship and they said it was nice, food was good and service was good (they said ood on MSC had gotten much better then 5 years ago on the line)
I will try MSC in the Caribbean in the future.
Never sailed on MSC, but if the price is right I will give it a go.
Two of my friends just returned from taking an MSC cruise to Bermuda. They had a fantastic time & want to book another cruise with MSC.
I cruise mostly on Carnival, but am quickly getting annoyed with them reducing vifp perks to gold members, among other cutbacks and inconsistencies. I have been looking at MSC already and think that they would be a possible alternative, as well as NCL. I think it is good to broaden one's horizens anyway when it comes to "brands"
