2nd Cruise on MSC Seaside by jmtfrisco

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

This was a very relaxing cruise for me, my wife my 2 brothers and their wives and my cousin. We are from Texas, Alabama (ROLL TIDE) and Nashville, TN. We had a GREAT trip with lots of fun and great memories that will never fade. We are ready to do it again. My wife and I will be back in Miami in 4 weeks for a short trip on MSC Miraviglia. We are anxious to be the first ship to visit their new Ocean Cay Island. We can hardly wait even though we just got off the ship.

The MSC Seaside Yacht Club - Our new standard for cruising by billwest580

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

Outstanding cruise, we booked a different itinerary on-board for next year. I did have some minor concerns regarding the internet and the limited instruction given for its use. Also, the photographers didn't visit the Yacht Club bar and restaurant. We had to seek them out on other decks and had difficulty downloading the photos due to inadequate instructions. The Yacht Club is the way to go!!!!

Beautiful ship, very different experience by GwynnieP

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Seaside

A different cruise experience with international flavor. I read reviews before our trip to prepare myself for a negative experience, but it wasn’t negative, just different. It certainly gave me a greater appreciation of other cultures.

Wonderful cruise ! by ChantaleMc

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

As this was our very 1st cruise, we have nothing to compare. But I can honestly say that I was very impressed with this beautiful ship. The food was great both in the buffet and MDR. Our waiters were so friendly every night at the dining room, and our stateroom was always kept clean, no complaints here.

Great Experience! by Corkysworld

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

We had an amazing time on this cruise! You can view more photos and details on my IG: corkys_world They could use a little help with the kids club since the hours aren’t consistent but we assumed it was because we had to move ports from Ocean Cay to Nassau since OC wasn’t opened. Great time!

Overall an Outstanding Cruise. MSC did a great jobe at a fair price and I would definitely sail on the MSC Seaside again. I would probably try the Western Caribbean cruise though.

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!

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.

Wedding Cruise by mcatanzarite04

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

This started as just a cruise with two of us. When we decided on getting married it became 12 of us. The trip met all expectations and more. Would do it again in a heartbeat

MSC not what we expected by gghadden

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

We will most likely not cruise MSC Seaside again due to the poor organization of activities and the very poor food. I'm a foodie for sure and was so looking forward to this. On a positive note there is a chocolatier on this ship and I did enjoy having chocolate coffee just about everyday-for that I would consider this ship but only for that. The bar staff is very "snooty" once they find out you have a drink package.

good cruise by debbierob21

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

Would like to say that the staff was remarkable. We would have liked to do more things when it rains since we had inside room. Overall it was a great cruise. P.s. lounge chairs are limited for the amount of people that are booked for cruise.

Rude security officers, food poisoning and a lot of fun! by lobachev

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

I wish I could rate it with 4 or even 4.5 stars because we really liked the ship itself and most people who work here. But as you know the first impressions are the most lasting. Our first impressions were the worst. My family faced very rudely and aggressive behavior from one of the security officers during embarkation (Her name is Ms. Plummer Katyana). My wife (who is not good in English) and my little daughter, were waiting for me near the inspection area in terminal F during check-in time then Ms. Plummer Katyana asked my wife to go do a check-in or to leave terminal F for some reason. My wife tried to say what she can't do check-in because her passport was with me and I'll arrive in 10-15 minutes. Also, she tried to explain Ms. Plummer Katyana what she can't wait outside because she had a lot of luggage with her and also it was very hot outside (more than 80 degrees) and it's bad for the baby and for her personally because she is taking a heart medication course but Ms. Katyana didn't want to listen my wife and my wife asked Ms. Katyana to call the police. But Ms.Katyana didn’t call the police and kicked out my wife and my daughter outside of building in a very rude and aggressive manner. My wife didn't understand Ms. Katyana's speech, but she thinks Ms. Katyana used some words like "Russian dog" or "Russian doll" and these words were said very rude. I don't want to believe that Ms. Katyana is a racist, but it was some other people other nationalities there, but Ms. Katyana said nothing to other people, she kicked out only my wife and my baby. So, the first impression of the cruise was irrevocably corrupted. I tell this story to the ship's crew members on the reception counter and they asked me to contact MSC support about this case, so I send a complaint letter and never received an answer. The next 5 days were really wonderful! The ship equipped very well - pools, bars, shops, restaurants! Our daughter especially liked the kids' pool area - I guess she wished to stay here forever)). Also, I was surprised but there was toddler care on the ship for kids under 3. Marina, who works here is a charmer person, she really loves kids and kids love her (and she can speak any language very well!!). Btw, all other crew members were VERY kind to all kids. Several shows we watched here were amazing! I even didn't expect such quality. This theater looks like a branch of some Broadway theaters. The itinerary is very good for first-time cruisers. Islands, we 've been are close to each other but they are so different - Distinctive Jamaica, businesslike Caymans, beautiful Cozumel ... Unfortunately, we didn't visit Ocean Cay because of the weather, but we visited Nassau instead and it worth to visit too. The day before the last day was not so good again. My wife and daughter had poisoned in the Seashore restaurant. Of course, crew members said it couldn't be because they had to control food quality on each stage and it was no more customers who also poisoned, but I'm pretty sure they were poisoned by ravioli from the kids' menu. Why do I think so? So, first, the day before poisoning was a "day at sea" - so we couldn't eat somewhere else. Second, the waiters here don't offer a kids menu by default - you should ask for it everytime. We even didn't know kids' menu is exists first 3 days. Third - there were 6-8 positions in kids' menu including mac & cheese, pizza and other stuff kids like. I don't think ravioli was popular, so, we were probably only the ones who order it that day. My wife and daughter had vomiting and stomachache all night long after that dinner and we forced to even visit the ship's doctor, who charged us more than $300 for an I.V. As I said before, the crew members on the reception counter said it couldn't be that my family was poisoned by the restaurant's food and I even didn't hear a sorry from them. So, if we exclude the two worst cases I described here, it could be 4.5 stars for that cruise. Minus 0.5 for the case with the security officer, minus 0.5 for the case with food and minus 0.5 for now answer from the support team. So, the honest total is 3 stars.
