THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! NEVER CRUISING WITH MSC AGAIN EVER!!! by MGorrin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Virtuosa

Cruising in MSC was a horrible experience. Not sure how AA will align with such a horrible company. Had problems with billing, paid for picture package that I was never able to get, paid for drink packaged that allowed me to drink only on type of beer, guest service was bad. To top off, we felt like in prison because we were forced to use only their excursions. Talking about COVID control environment but then put 6 busses in a tour in Lisbon. Won't use this line ever again.

Fantastic Return to Cruising by Jas123

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Virtuosa / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

Overall, this was an amazing cruise and a wonderful way to return to cruising after 18 months. The ship is huge, filled with great facilities and beautifully designed. The itinerary was good, 7 days from Southampton, calling at Portland, Liverpool and Belfast (ignore the one listed - the app/cruiseline.com didn't update to reflect the UK itineraries), given the circumstances and Covid-19 restrictions. The crew were all excellent and friendly, there was so much to do and it was just fantastic to be back on a ship!
