MSC Meraviglia

November 2017 - MSC Meraviglia to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Would Do This Cruise Again

We really enjoyed this cruise but experienced cold weather and rain for the first two itinerary stops in France and Italy. Ports of call were excellent as was the ship and amenities. We loved that MSC honors previous cruisers status from other cruise lines or hotel or airline status.

Adventure of the Seas

December 2016 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Wonderful Cruise with Rough Start

The itinerary was great and the staff and service were excellent. The only problem was with the two interconnecting rooms. The guest before us purchased wheels of cheese in one of the ports and cooled it on the carpet with ice during the cruise which leaked into the carpet. The rooms smelled like old diapers. Our stateroom personnel agreed and we changed cabins while the carpets were replaced - problem solved. They were vvery apologetic and the rest of the cruise was outstanding! Happy

Jewel of the Seas

December 2014 - Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Wonderful Cruise

My family (wife and two daughters 15 and 17) had a great cruise and a wonderful experience aboard the Jewel of the Seas.  We had an inside stateroom and found it to be quite roomy in comparison to some of the other popular cruise lines we have traveled with.  The food was outstanding, the service was exceptional, and the attitude of the crew was always positive and upbeat.  We found the ship to be very well maintained and the rooms in excellent condition.  There were only two negatives: (1) my daughters found the teen center to be to restrictive (listened to older music and would not change to newer music) and thought the staff was mean (yelled at a child) and unaccommodating.  The staff admitted to them that teens typically did not use it which contrasted with my kids experience on other cruise lines; (2) luggage tags provided by Royal Caribbean did not stick so well and one came off my bag at the end of the cruise and was misplaced.

Otherwise, we had an exceptional cruise experience and found CAPT Thore and his staff to be exceptional and highly visible.  In my six cruises, I have never experienced getting on and off the ship as easily as I did on this ship - they did not have long lines and back-ups which we really appreciated.

robertogan's Tips

MSC Meraviglia MSC Meraviglia - Easy to get lost on the cabin floors with a number of inner hallways.
Genoa, Italy - Another day of rain in this city famous for pesto.
Naples, Italy - Loved the Sorrento area to the south of Naples.
Fort-De-France, Martinique - It is a new port and they have a lot of infrastructure to establish. Public transportation outside of taxi service is very difficult inless you speak French as very few speak any English.
Bridgetown, Barbados - All beaches are public and were outstanding with very friendly locals - we will definetely go back.to Barbados!
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Great place for shopping - we went to Sunset Beach where the airplanes fly right over the beach and it was amazing.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Old San Juan is a great place to explore. We had a hotel in Condado and took the bus for 75 cents to old San Juan - it was very easy.
