Cold by qcwaterman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Hard to enjoy because of bad weather. We had a lot of trouble with the MSC application. Would be great to be able to buy a specialty coffee package.

Beautiful ship disappointed with food by bradybugs

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Unfortunately I wouldn’t sail with MSC again. We prefer the food and vibe on royal Caribbean and Norwegian. There were many foreigners not many people spoke English. The ship is huge and beautiful oh and no running track first ship not to have that. Small gym as well not open 24 hrs. Pool deck is odd hard to watch pool games. Different type of cruise director also not what you would expect if you have sailed other lines this was only my 9 th cruise but it is in last place over the other 8 sorry

Not the best cruise that I've taken by stanleyhwest1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was the worst cruise I've been on but it did have the best entertainment which made the cruise worth taking but not sure if I'll cruise MSC again.

Some good, some bad by bedxpert7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall it was ok. The ship is beautiful, but they still have a ways to go to compare to Norwegian or Royal Caribbean. Food could have been better. Need more staff. There was just something lacking, meaning no extra nice touches. The price was good. Getting off on the islands took a very long time. Overall, just OK, but nothing major that would make me not take another cruise with MSC.

Next.... by Cruisegirl44

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Besides the incident involving a drunk patron we had a great time. Security was slow to act! It's never okay to put your hands on someone just because you're drunk! If you have an issue with some of the rude people just know security is in no rush and laugh! Rude as heck!

Our first Cruise trip, and we choose the MSC by prettybmx

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall, we had a good time. Despite the many disappointment with many things. We did not let that ruined our happiness. Some things could have handle better if staff were properly trained. It was our first time on a cruise and we chose the MSC with the help of our travel agent and to experience some of the things we experienced was not good

I will be back on the MSC Seaside no doubt! From the pools, to the food, to the activities, relax areas, drinks, and casino, this cruise experience was too notch.

Poor at best. Not a cruise for any American. Poor food, not enough, lousy bar service. by bobstripes

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This is an Italian ship, geared to Europeans. It is not for the avg. American looking for a great cruise. Italian crew, not to social to us English speakers, European diet meals, not too much of anything, and you Pay for good food. I found it ridiculous on Friday night that they felt the need to shut the water off. I was up at 6AM, no shower, no teeth brushing, No coffee, no Juices, no cappachino, or espresso at the bar or restaurant. They said 6 hours, it turned out to be 7 and a half hours. This was the most expensive cruise I've ever taken. NEVER AGAIN on MSC Seaside, or any Italian cruise line. And is on my sh.. list too. Sorry, but honest. Robert P. Northern Potter Pa.

Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Western

A beautiful ship, but the cabins need to provide more storage. Lots of great entertainment and things to do.

Beautiful Ship by davidapachkofsk

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Be very wary of the free drink package. It only covers up to $6 drinks and you would think that they would just charge you the difference if you bought a $7 drink, but NO, they charge you the entire $7. Not mentioned anywhere, and almost all drinks are over $6. Be wary of free WiFi, because it is only a small amount of MB Never use a Debit card for your on-board account, because you have to wait in line the last morning to get any used funds back in cash. No one tells you this ahead of time. If you are older and need assistance with your luggage and also need to get off the ship early for a return flight, you will need to ask for a supervisor because the regular staff will just tell you that you have no options other than to figure it out yourself, but the supervisor will make whatever arrangements you need . As a gold card member in the Voyageurs club, they said that we would get a fruit bowl in our room, but that bowl consisted of an apple and an orange. They also said we got a free birthday cake, but no one in the dining room knew anything about it. Finally, we were to get a free picture, but when we went to get one on the last day, we were told that we were to come down on a particular day and time earlier in the cruise, and it was no longer available, but never mentioned to us at any time. With almost 20 past cruises, we thought we would be treated a little nicer. RCCL makes you feel like a king.

Not So Great... by paulpedone1977

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This is a good cheap cruise if you are a beginner to cruising. If you have cruised before and are looking for service and quality experience this cruise line lacks in this area. The staff is very overwhelmed in all areas and is lacking which makes long waits for ordering drinks, getting quality housekeeping and quality service in the restaurants is definitely lacking. This cruise line charges for everything!!!! Be aware!!! Also the basic drink package doesn't cover very much so its not the best deal if you are getting the over priced drink package. The prices they charge for the drink and dining packages do not match the quality you receive

Not What I Expected by mmccam

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaside / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This is probably ok for a middle class cruise. Know what you are getting. MSC will nickle and dime you for everything all week disturbing you with more selling.
