Review summary

We are a married couple who went on the cruise for our 25th wedding anniversary. Loved the ship, bars, our free Aurea spa massage and Solarium on deck 19 private where Aurea guests have loads of beds and seats to choose from. Would definitely go on another MSC Cruise.


4 out of 5
Arrived for the recommended time and breezed through and straight onto the ship, signs for Aurea guests were there but could've been bigger

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in the main dining room was fine, disappointed with the speciality dining experience at Ocean Cay, after paying extra for the experience there was still an extra charge on top for the more desirable meals. Unlimited drinks package was excellent and would recommend.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Enjoyed the ship, plenty to do if you want, silent disco was fun, white night, 70's night great, formal nights and enjoyed predinner drinks in the Seaview lounge and cocktails at the Shine bar.


4 out of 5
Good performers, dj and singers, especially the guy by the chocate bar, a really good singer, got the crowd up and involved.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Worse cabin steward we've had in 3 cruises but bar staff were excellent especially Ralph at the Miramar and Shine bars. Found most of the staff polite.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the ship, absolutely beautiful especially decks around the Atrium and staircase.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Good cabin not too far from lifts towards the front of the ship, small shower though, couldn't understand why in the Aurea package with premium drinks package all drinks in the fridge were extra charge.

Ship tip

Enjoy the bars, there's plenty of them, the Miramar around 4.30pm is a great place for late afternoon drinks. Get the drinks package and WiFi before getting on ship off your booking page.


5 out of 5
Easy and seemless
