Not quite the cruise I expected

Jan 18th, 2020

7/10 Fantastic value for money with the all inclusive food/drink, a must. However, MSC Lirica is the oldest ship in the fleet, quite a mix of nationalities including lots of Russians! The daily entertainment was 'Butlins like!' therefore with the extra day at sea it wasn't great on board, not much to do. Finally, I would prefer cruising around different countries or Caribbean beaches as one Emirate is much the same as each other.

First cruise ever!

Dec 31st, 2019

Eleven day cruise on a primarily Italian ship. There was some snobbery with some of the crew but the overall staff was friendly and fun. The ports were great and I have been hooked on cruises ever since.

MSC ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING!

Dec 14th, 2019

I decided to get off the ship after being onboard for 55 minutes. It’s absolute chaos. Crew have no idea what is going on. Ask questions and get a different answer each time. Food was diabolically bad. The moment I saw dripping blood off roast pork, I knew I couldn’t continue on this voyage. I packed up my suitcase and got off the ship. I found the ship to be a safety hazard. I hope my negative review helps people better choose their cruise ship and please don’t choose MSC.

An eventful solo trip. MSC is a great cruise company if you're on a budget.

Dec 5th, 2019

I would cruise MSC again. They were cheap so I could pay double as a solo in an ocean view rather than an inside room. I could also add on the premium drink package and Internet in my budget. Food was excellent in my opinion.

European style cruising for a good price. Recommend if you are used to traveling on your own outside of USA.
