Good experience by Maiklnik

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Seaview / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Good liner. It’s a pity that the zipline doesn’t always work and that we were not able to try it. The route was changed, instead of Cannes we went to Marseille.

Busy Mediterranean Cruise by donaldoc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaview / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

We had a small backdrop comparing to sailing Meraviglia a year ago. Beautifull ship, but not the "slow flow" neither "slow food" i would have expected from an Italian company. Howerer, we did choose this cruise to have maximum ports visits, and you cannot do more than 7 in 7 days!

Horrible cruise, not worth the money. Ill be writing to MSC Directly separately. Booking through AA.com was just fine - no issues at all.

European cruise lines are different by NickatSea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaview / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

We done this cruise round trip Barcelona 10th Aug 2019. European cruise lines are different to American cruise lines - service is different to suit different cultures. For us we felt lower level customer service, lower standard and variety of foods, lower onboard entertainment than we would have preferred. Hence we would not have MSC at top of our list to cruise again however we would not rule out another try if itinerary warranted it.

Superbe croisière by Ellesse972

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Seaview

Belle croisière. Après, le staff essaie de vous vendre des photos, des réservations aux restaurants de spécialités, des forfaits boissons, des soins au spa. Nous avons voyagé avec Princess et n'avons pas ressenti une telle pression. Sinon, globalement ce fût une très belle expérience.

A nightmare of a cruise vacation.... Do not travel with MSC.... Beware stay away by casperbigcap

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Seaview / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

This is where it went down hill when my son was injured because 1 of the waitresses dropped a beer bottle. A piece of glass injured my son's leg. He was bleeding. The staff did nothing to help my son. I had to bring my son to medic. Confronting the staff they were lost. I question MSC safety practices and even how they are trained . My son has a scar now and their customer service only defended themselves to say sorry ur son was hurt but we can't do anything. Please stay away.

Worst cruise ever! by mbrandonisio199

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Seaview / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

First off, when we arrived I checked the sheets/bed as I always do and found tons of hair in the sheets. The bed was made so I’m confused as to how there was hair in the sheets? Did they remake the bed but not change the sheets?? I called guest services to have the sheets changed. Room was not very clean. I dropped my chapstick on the floor on the side of the bed and when I picked it up, I also picked up hairs and other debris along with my chapstick. You could tell they don’t move things around then they clean and only clean the visible areas. Customer service was terrible. On the first day, our waiter didn’t even tell us his name or do the usual introduction. We didn’t encounter any friendly workers on this cruise. In our past experiences, the workers have been very friendly and outgoing and always willing to talk. At the very least, I expected them to be friendly. They say they accommodate for gluten free. I filled out the paperwork over a month before & even called them to confirm this. When I arrive they tell me that the buffet isn’t safe and I should only eat on the MDR. This being a European cruise with a daily stop, we had an excursion every day so when we came back, the dining room was closed for lunch. This left me with only the buffet which I was told wasn’t safe for me to eat. I had to starve until dinner time because of the high risk of cross contamination. I attempted to eat at the omelette station for breakfast one day before a tour and got terribly sick. The breakfast times didn’t always work out with tours either. On our LAST day I was told that there were gluten free lunchboxes that I could request to take on excisions. Why wasn’t I told about this on the first day!? All I was told repeatedly sad that the buffet wasn’t safe and to eat in the MDR, even though I repeatedly told them that I had tours and came back after the MDR was closed. They didn’t make an effort to make special meals for me or try to accommodate for me when I would come back from a long tour which was during a heat wave mind you, so I was starving! I purposely chose MSC because I read all about their gf options. I feel completely blindsided and lied to. There’s nothing worse than feeling like you cannot eat safely on a vacation! Furthermore, the excursions are not organized at all, you would think that they would be considering they do the same thing every week. None of them left on time and we had transportation issues with two of our buses. The ac broke down on two buses, both in 95 heat!! And I felt so terrible after the second time because we were driving and then waiting in the hot bus for I don’t even know how long. I was sick the entire night and then had to go to the emergency room in Rome the next day because I had severe heat exhaustion and required an IV and antibiotics for my high fever and heart rate. It’s clear that there isn’t required maintenance on these vehicles which is very unsafe, especially during the current heat wave in Europe! The tour guide was exceptionally rude and told us to shut our mouths and wait for another bus. Multiple people felt very sick and I’m sure I am not the only one who got severe heat exhaustion. Overall, it was a terrible experience. I deeply regret choosing MSC and would never cruise with them again.

For our first cruise it was excellent. When you spend it with family, it's going to be just that.

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Seaview

Had a great time but lots of rude passengers and also staff. A few times they charged me for things and when you went to sort it out they would not apologise. Food is a little hit and miss and cleanliness could be better. I for one would not cruise again on MSC and find RC far superior

The MSC Seaview is a... by s24nto

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Seaview

The MSC Seaview is a expensive ferry. Looking at the pro's - we found the food to be great and the variety was excellent at main dinner and buffets. The ship itself is also great with lots for families to do, but not too many quiet areas for those looking to chill. The shows were also the best I have seen to date. Our biggest cons were 1. Staff - ship appears to be understaffed resulting in a zombie like staff at all levels, of all the officers we passed not one looked up to greet. 2. Passengers - now this is a snap shot of what we had but rude is an understatement, would regularly walk into you without even a acknowledging you, at one point people overloaded a lift we were in to the point some little kid had to almost sit on our babies pram. 3. Language barrier - even though all announcements are in English first we found most of the staff had terrible English. I know many have mentioned the announcements but it really is tiring hearing in 7 different languages and the speakers need tuning down a bit. Lastly, the holiday is cheap because everything costs... wont be provide water on the table in the main dining room without it being a chargeable bottle...
