Bellissima Maiden Season in Western Med by thomastx

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Bellissima / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

The Bellissima is a gorgeous ship. Food on the ship is good, but was only marginal in dining rooms. Pizza at the buffet was awesome. There was too much pushy upselling of drinks and dining packages. Most of the staff encountered was great and very friendly. The only exception we had to this was in the Photo Gallery. The shows were mostly below average. I would cruise again just because of the beauty and comfort of the ship itself.

Loved the Ports by nikeeb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Bellissima

We are a couple in our 40’s with a 9 year old from the U.S... definitely the minority. All of the announcements and kids club activities had to be said in about 5 different languages which was interesting. We actually liked hearing all of the different languages and it was a great learning experience for the most part. There were a handful of rude people. The entertainment wasn’t really our speed but the bars and lounges were good. We really enjoyed the speciality restaurants and ports.

Beautiful ship, unhappy crew. by Tencents

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Bellissima / Destination: Europe

Bellissima is a beautiful ship, but the crew seemed very unhappy in their jobs. Buffet food was very ordinary and was very repetitious. Excursions were expensive and had lots of free time included, which made excursions not value for money. Would not recommend MSC to friends. Have done 11 cruises on other lines.

Good choice of destinations. Very good support to choose excursions in different ports. Very friendly staff. Nice food in Paseidonia restaurant; but lack of different food in buffet. Show - very good, but sometimes too loud

Beautiful ship! by baronswell

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Bellissima / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Was our first cruise with MSC, possibly last. We found RCI to be much more on a personal level, their staff are full of fun and the food choice is plentiful.

Beautiful ship but watch out for extras! by simah

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Bellissima / Destination: Europe

The ship itself is stunning and has all the mod cons. We got a great price and therefore i really couldn't complain. The comparisons i have done are due to cruising with Royal Caribbean twice before. The main Gallerie space is really the "spend your money gallerie" The shops are too expensive and there were no big sales like Royal Caribbean, probably because this ship was going round the port itinerary in a loop therefore different people were starting at different times. The speciality restaurants are also off this main Gallerie so it felt a bit strange to be hanging around when you weren't buying the £7 waffle or £100+ dining option. The photographers are also annoying. The rates are so high that you just don't want to spend over £100 on a few photos. People have good phone cameras!

Lovely cruise by Guz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Bellissima

Beautiful ship, most of the entertainment staff were very friendly but others looked lost, didn’t know how to communicate with passengers. Shows were very good. Food lovely. We had easy drinks package and it was sufficient. Slow service in some bars, but that’s to be expected where there’s approximately 5000 passengers. Aquapark a must, slides were great fun. Not everyone washes their hands or use sanitizer when entering buffet and restaurant, on other cruises we’ve done a member of staff made sure that was done before entering. Even when going aboard they had no sanitizer on the steps of the ship. Restaurant was ok. Small portions of food. One particular waiter would not serve us tea after the dinner because he said it would ruin the flavor of the wine we just had, even though we didn’t care about the flavor we just wanted a cup of tea after dinner and he refused to give it to us, he explained he was a science student!!! A lot of the staff were very inexperienced and not that friendly towards passengers, not like other cruise ships we’ve done, where we’d say, can’t wait to return and meet them lovely people again. Overall a lovely ship but some staff in public areas a let down.

Wonderful by Goldo1772

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Bellissima / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Registre mi cabina y la de mi hermana con la misma tarjeta de credito al embarcar y al desembarcar la detuvieron porque tenia una deuda. Tuve que pagar con VISA. Yo espero que no dupliquen el pago. En otros cruceros que he tomado no habia que pagar las bebidas, al menos no el agua. Muy excesivo el costo.

The cruise staff was very accommodating and went above and beyond. Being in the VIP section the food needed serious help.

Overall it was a fun ship and I would cruise on the Bellissma again. I would try the Yacht club next time to have a more private and refined experience.

Big ship and bad designed.... by join

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Bellissima

Big ship and bad designed. Always crowded in the promenade, all night parties took place into Bellissima Lounge with no more than 20 seats. Few outside areas. Too much technology, Zoe is a joke, "ATMs" works strange sometimes. It happens not have cash to give my change and took 45 minutes for a front desk guy to solve my problem. I think it was first time when this type of issue occurred. Cleanliness-perfect Staff-not much interact, no problems when needed. Cabin-perfect, interior 14052 Food-normal MSC Shows-worst experience, need to book every night, very small theatre, always crowded and bad shows. Everything interesting was moved to charged Cirque du Soleil, which was great (Syma). Entertainment-not much interact. Pools and aqua park-great, heated water and, strange, not so crowded.
