Loved the cruise by IssiV

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

Amazing cruise with great entertainment. The shows, the humor, the food- everything was designed to satisfy the European taste. The food variety was OK for first time travelers but it could definitely be improved if the cruise line would like to target frequent travelling US customers. No other comments. Overall, the cruise was fantastic.

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

Beautiful Cruise Ship! Travel in Yacht Club for superb experience. by maxdoc4

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

This is a relatively new ship that is absolutely beautiful. The Yacht Club experience is fantastic with a very large suite and cuisine that is superb. No need for specialty restaurants.

Good trip. Nice ship by MichelC

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

The cruise was well worth it after securing a good deal on a last minute trip. The balcony rooms are nice, the crew and service was good, and the entertainment was fun. The itinerary wasn’t the best so I wouldn’t do it again but overall I had a good time on a nice big newer ship

Incredible Caribbean Cruise by RickM11144

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

I would definitely recommend MSC and this cruise and the MSC Seaside. I liked how the itinerary worked, with the first day and a half at sea, to get to know the ship better, then start visiting the ports of call. With Ocean Cay as the final stop and beach day, it was a great way to end our journey.

Disappointment by umichsakura

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

I was extremely disappointed in this cruise. I’ve sailed Holland America through and I was extremely satisfied. I chose MSC simply because of the ship. I’ll never do that again. The embark/disembark was a nightmare, the food was pretty terrible for all meals except the dining room for dinner was okay. The buffet was not good at all. The Starwalker Michael Jackson show was excellent, the ship was beautiful, almost too many amenities, yet no gift shop to purchase even a snack. I’m vegan, and I cannot eat dairy, and I literally had no options, so I had to eat animal product to sustain myself. I based this on Holland last year, who had many options daily for me. The stateroom was a joke for the price. I slept on a loveseat with a bad cold out mattress. Also the winds were bad, and they cganged our excursions twice, and canceled the second, just leaving us on Nassau with no suggestions, no directions. They didn’t even tell us they cancelled, no announcement-we found out when we were leaving the ship to go to port. Never again.

The big ship with small recreational areas and a lot of restricted section for the wealthy clients only. by Green820

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

Good food, good theatre productions. Everything else.. ok or less. Big ship with a few public spaces and many restricted areas for the wealthy clients only. Would not go back again on this ship.

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.

Mediocre Caribbean Cruise Line by Machram317

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

Although I had a nice time I dont think I'll be traveling with MSC anytime soon. Maybe I'll give them another chance when they become more established in the USA.

OUr First Thanksgiving Cruise by MzDuke

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

Kuddos to several cruise staff: 1) Bradley Solayao, Cruise staff. He's part of the entertainment - I vote for him to be the next cruise director!!! He is fun, he's entertaining, he's super friendly with passengers, and a lot of passengers would agree we all LOVE him! He's awesome!!! 2) Jackielou C. Harlent, Asst Buffet Supervisor - She is friendly, helpful, very professional and actually talks to passengers! She's not robotic like a lot of the staff, if passengers doesn't break the ice most just walk around like a robot that has to do their work.

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.

Loved this Cruise! by Cruisin4Fun2019

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends

I think the only thing I would suggest is to update the app to better define the activities, show and food descriptions.

Mediocre by jj927

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

MSC is a different style of cruising than most American lines. Not bad, just different. However, the Seaside, which was designed for the North American cruiser missed the mark and doesn't have the glitz and glamour other MSC ships have.
