Be sure to download the MSC for me app before sailing. Once on board, you will be able to look at a variety of things on your phone from this app as well as make reservations for shows, massages, etc. I found that about 75 of the cruisers were of varying dialects -- be patient, be kind.

Excellent family cruise.
The MSC Seaside is a great Ship
pick another Cruise Line
Choose a different company
Go Yacht Club
Entreteiment very good
Go all in for the top tier Yatch club or stay home. Bar upgrade a must for anything worth drinking smoothy ftuit juice
Check your account constantly
Be patient, the staff is trying to accommodate 4000+ passengers. Give em a break.
Shop around before booking on this ship! Initial price is good. but unless you are willing to eat substandard food, comparison shop!
AVOID Buffets at the busy times! It is absolutely insane and more rude people than I have ever encountered on a ship. This is not MSC fault. It was totally a passenger problem.
Nice ship but WiFi and cell phone servive awful.
Make use of the glass lifts they are used less often by guests.
Always be kind to the staf say good morning acknowledge them and they will make sure they will give you the best cruise ever. The spa package is a must do. Dont let bad reviews change your mind have an open mind and a great attitude and MSC Crew will welcome you like a royal family. Remember to smile it goes a long way!!
If you’re a frequent cruiser with status on another line, be sure to take advantage of MSC’s status match. We are diamond Plus and Royal and MSC put us in their top tier of their program. Their perks are much better than our ‘home’ line. Do this as soon as you decide to take an MSC cruise!
Book the week long spa pass online for a great savings and use the spa daily. You can also use the decks to layout attached to the spa and avoid the crowds.
Download the MSC App prior to boarding the ship. Once the ship leaves port, put your phone into airplane mode and use the ship's wi-fi to avoid excessive data charges.
