MSC 7 night eastern cruise by skmaas403

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

Ship is incredible, just lacks quality entertainment and needs to improve on port time arrivals.

Beautiful ship. Sparse service. Attempts to up sell at every turn. by sigkapksu98

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

It was a beautiful ship but compared to other cruise experiences we were disappointed. There was something in our room that was not cleaned in our room that ruined my husbands clothing, we were promised that they were going to make our 10 year anniversary special (the reason we went on our cruise) with cake and champagne which was never delivered. Our dinner friends boasted about chocolate covered strawberries and champagne delivered for a leaking toilet. The food was good. For someone with food allergies, I was well cared for. The service was a little slow and every where you turned they were trying to up sell you on something - approached at dinner about buying a higher end dinner. It was annoying.

Beautiful ship by poflcruzr

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

Beautiful ship. Food in dining rooms is average but staff eager to please and offer different selection if you are not thrilled with your choice. LOTS of bars with friendly bartenders. Theme nights would be a lot more fun if guests knew about them. Shows are wonderful and different every night.

Great Caribbean Cruise by dsalinger09

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

This cruise was a birthday celebration for my husband and a much needed vacation. It was everything we hoped for. We have even started to talk about where we want to go next on MSC. Book your cruise now, you won’t be disappointed. Bon voyage!

Seaside Cruise Experience by dhp3805

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

Cruise was ok. The minute you got on the ship, crew was there trying to upgrade the beverage package, sell you spa treatments or specialty restaurant meals. Beverage package is not fully explained when you are booking. The basic drink package will not get you far - very few cocktails included, only 2 beers and a few wines, soft drinks and coffee are included though. Food needs to have more variety and selection. Guest relations staff was not very friendly and somewhat sarcastic. When questioning our bill we were told "don't worry about it." Excuse me - I'm the one paying the bill - I will worry about it if it's not right. Our bills were mixed up a couple times, wristbands had to be switched out as they would not open our cabin door, and later in the cruise somehow my picture would show up on my son's wristband when scanned. Bars need more bartenders and waiters - had to wait long time to be served. However the disembarkation was the very worst and ruined what might have been a good vacation. Will never cruise with MSC again.

MSC Seaside is a beautiful ship by uspsdelivers4me

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

The ship was lovely and well maintained. The staff was always friendly and greeted us with smiles no matter the day or what activity they were engaged in. Our cabin was nice, the food plentiful and varied. My only disappointment was the short time allotted at the different ports and some of the evening entertainment shows. I would definitely cruise with MSC again.

Great cruise with a few bumps by Susanlc3234

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

I loved that the majority of the passengers aboard this ship were European. It’s great to learn different cultures. My husband hated this cruise line and swears to never go with them again. I enjoyed it because of the passengers. But Customer Service was the worst

Beautiful Experience by ladygmfd1

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

We had an excellent time on MSC and would do it all over again. We are eager to know when the cruise line will be departing from Tampa as we will book another as soon as we know! The ports could have better timing, but all in all, it was a beautiful cruise!!! I hope we are notified about Tampa!!!! PLEASE~

Hit or miss by marilynuhre

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

I had read the reviews about the MSC Seaside before I booked this cruise so I was well aware of the service/food issues. They were correct. I agree. But also the ship is gorgeous and had great entertainment and we had a blast. So that is one has to decide. I don’t think I will go on another MSC cruise as I missed the service and the food more than the shows.

It was just ok. The thing that made it awesome was the excursions. Not sure if I would book MSC again.

Lovely ship and staff by reneeearliecola

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

The MSC Seaside is a beautiful, clean ship and a peaceful, relaxing adventure. I met several women from different cities who were also solo travelers or with family groups. I have planned to book more cruises on MSC as this is my third one with this cruisline. I did not care for all the children in and out of the casinos and bars, sitting in areas where they shouldn't be allowed. Other than that, I didn't have any problems with the ship, staff, meals, casino or the cruise in general.

Amazing ship, awesome busy week with tons to do. by JoseGarcia3507

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

Everything was great, the boat is a sight to remember, massive in size and things to do. The water park on the ship is really something to see and use, especially while at Sea. My only issue was the door down dining, there was not enough time to finish your meal. We were literally asked to leave in three occasions whole eating out dessert to make space for the next seating. I would have understood if we were just sitting and chatting, but we were in the middle of dessert. Not cool. Other than that, great ship and I would definitely consider another trip on MSC.
