Elegant ship and perfect itinerary! by CarolinaMiles

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

Top of the list cruise experience! We still prefer Royal. Make sure and see Rome and Venice as well, the two best cities not on itinerary!

🌟🌟 Amazing 🌟🌟 by CarolCough

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

Amazing cruise, really enjoyed it. Beautiful ship with so much to see and do. I can't see how anyone can fault the food or accommodation. Definitely get a balcony room though, it's nice to get away from it all every now and again.

We had an amazing trip... by adenlawson

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Bellissima

We had an amazing trip around Europe on this brand new and absolutely gorgeous ship. First time on MSC after 19 other cruises on American lines. I cannot speak highly enough about the food in the main dining room. First cruise of twenty that we ate in the main dining room all 7 nights. Our waiter Wiradarma was amazing as was the rest of the waitstaff. The buffet may not have been to the standard of the American cruise lines but was all part of what made this an entirely new cruise experience and we really enjoyed it, as the ship was 3 weeks old, it was immaculate as expected. The staterooms were of really good size and the beds, especially the pillows were spectacular. Would highly recommend MSC and especially the Bellissima for a cruise and we will be sailing with MSC in the future.

This was our first Europe... by cernus

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Bellissima

This was our first Europe Cruise and our 9th cruise over all... Got a great room 9277 Had a seperate area for the kids bunks, had a couch, large double bed, bath and shower in en-suite... balcony was huge overlooking the rear of the boat. Love the interactive app to book restaurants, events, activities and shows... Would highly recommend this ship 1 negative don’t bother paying extra € for the specialty restaurants was bad poor quality service and food... except for cirque du soleil highly recommend dinner and show worth every € One more thing WATCH OUT FOR THE RUDE FRENCH GUESTS ONBOARD!!! See you next time MSC Bellissima

Ship: MSC Bellissima

Postives: -beautiful Ship -cirque du soleil -service in main restaurant -aquapark and Pools -cabin and steward -kids club Negatives: -drink packages are too expensive + 20% and less selections of drinks than in the past -in the evening there is no bar where you can find place to sit ,only option is bar at the indoor pool or the sky lounge -pay extra for ICE Cream, last summer this was also included in the drinks package Overall we got the feeling that we had to spend more money than on a previous MSC cruise and we got less...

TRYING TOO HARD TO MAKE MORE MONEY OUT OF PASSENGERS IN EVERY WAY by c2chenny

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

We were excited and overjoyed the moment we got on this stunning new ship as we saw the glamorous high tech interior. This was our second time cruising, with the first being in Alaska with HAL line 'Noordam', but the ship was very old and even had CRT TV in each cabin. However, we had a very enjoyable time on it and so we decided to cruise again, this time choosing a newer ship the MSC Bellissima, what could go wrong? Unfortunately, over the course of 7 days on the Bellissima we felt that MSC puts a higher priority on making more money out of guests in every way rather than making guests happy so they would come back again. For example: - Staffs would hard sell packages, souvenirs, lemon cello, photo shoots, etc. every chance they see you. - Basically apart from buffet, main dining rooms, shows, otherwise nothing is free. Even water is 3 euros/liter and guests are technically not allowed to take water with our own bottles in the water dispensers in the buffet area. - It is written by MSC that tipping to individual staffs is 'discouraged', and that tips are encouraged to be tipped to the company as a whole. After getting to know MSC's mentality we suspect that this was so that they could keep those tips and never pay it down to the staffs.

Too big and brash for me by Showpony1

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

I booked a big ship and got a big ship so I now know they are not for me. It was all too basic and money oriented for me so I know now beyond any doubt I need to pay a bit more to get a bit more.
