First Time on MSC - Wanted to love it but disappointed in ship and food by jabuddy

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

It was our first MSC cruise and we had high expectations but were disappointed in the food quality and selections and ship layout/decor. No soda package for kids or grilled cheese. The entertainment was very good and the embarkation and disembarkation process was excellent.

Beautiful but costly ship!! by tcurry07

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Nice but wish more things were included. Like better drink choices that weren't watered down. More activities for younger kids besides swimming.

I would not recommend by motocruiser19

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Overall I wouldn't recommend this ship. Personally I think, that because they're a Euopean cruise line and this ship isn't in the US full time, they don't cater to the US market well. A bunch of little things add up, and additionally the guests are rude and you'll find it's not the Americans. You don't get an all inclusive feeling so be prepared to have a big bill at the end. Also if you afford it pay for a yacht club room, the rest of the space is too crowded.

Be sure to download the MSC for me app before sailing. Once on board, you will be able to look at a variety of things on your phone from this app as well as make reservations for shows, massages, etc. I found that about 75 of the cruisers were of varying dialects -- be patient, be kind.
