Ship: MSC Magnifica
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Review SummaryThis cruise is not for American cruisers who are used to ships with big spaces. Having to listen to every announcements in 5 differenct languages(at first it was interesting...) wears you out after a few days.
They charge you on juices, coffees and teas plus 15% service charge other than the "tab water". They even charge a 15% service charge for the waters you purchase on ship to take along on an excursion, how is that even possible???
Almost always we could not find any available chairs or chaise lounges to sit and relax around the pools or decks, it was always full of people.
By the way, there are only two pools that are 5' 7'' or 6' 3" deep all around, not for the children.
Food and Dining
Not even a one midnight buffet, the GALA buffet they had was basically a dessert buffet we are used to on other cruises, unbelievable!!!
They charge you for the room service food you order and 15% service charge on top of the food.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Mary's House and Euphesus

Pros: The only thing we liked about this cruise was the Itinerary to Turkey and Croatia
Cons: This cruise is not for American cruisers who are used to ships with big spaces and big cabins or balcony rooms. They charge you for all basic drinks such as juices, coffes and teas plus 15% service fee.
