Have to say that the Msc bellissima is one of the nicest and one of the best ships I have been on. Excellent staff throughout the entire ship.

Very well organised in Dubai. Plenty of Msc staff to direct you to the busses in the airport to bring you directly to the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The buffet food was lovely. Loads of choices and cooked perfectly. It was my favourite place to get food and snacks. Our main dining room was the yacht club restaurant. Thought the portion sizes were very small but you can always ask for more and if you don’t like the menu , you can ask for other options like pasta, steak etc. The English bar was one of my favourite places for a few drinks. You can sit outside and watch the light shows and do some people watching. It was never difficult to get served.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
One or two of the pools were a bit small. Can be a bit crowed on sea days but there were a few pools around the ship to choose from. The spa was amazing and well worth a visit. I didn’t use the gym but it looked much smaller than usual.

The entertainment and DJs were excellent on the bellissima, we found it much better than previous Msc ships that we were on. Didn’t go to the theatre much as there was alway entertainment in the promenade area.

Ship Quality

The bellissima is a lovely ship and well designed. I really loved the promenade area, it was like a street with shops, bars and lounges all along it.
