Pleasant Cruise

Pleasant cruise, liked most of the excursions. Food was average with minimum variations. Entertainment was good through out the ship, the theater and at the numerous halls.

Great 1st cruise

Sep 15th, 2019

A cruise for my Mums 80th birthday. Was incredibly apprehensive as I’m terrified of the water but was truly a wonderful experience. Definitely would do again and with MSC. Things people complained to me about we’re things that they’d experienced differently on other cruises I had nothing to gauge by but I think you have to enjoy everything for what it is.

The Worldcruise was fantastic but the ship had two swimming pools but to small. The ship is making for a lot of passangers with childrens. A real familyship. The Captain was fantastic but he make only this Worldcruise . Now there is an other Captain. The shows wher real good. The food real good. The staff and crew real good. The AUREA facility's are bad.

MSC is first and formost an Italian cruise company and this shows in everything they do. And this is my main fault with this cruise. The whole cruise it was like English speaking people were always an after thought. Everything we did involved people shoving and pushing you out of the way..from the buffet to the elevators. People really had no manners to the point they would not move to let others off the elevator. Daily disembarking at the ports were an absolute desaster. It will only be a matter of time before someone gets hurt in the crush and pushing and shoving as MSC does not seam to believe in queues. Everyone waits for the doors to open then everyone just pushes to get out. Its the same at the buffet. You wait to get what you want then others just shove infront of you and elbow you out of the way. Same at the bars. The bar tenders do not seam to care who was there first its the person who is the pushiest who gets served. There is a place on one of the decks that was the smoking area. It was disgusting with butts on the ground and ash everywhere. The whole deck recked of smoke. Even thought there was no smoking on the balconies it was not enforced!!! So had to contend with smoke while out on balcony. The drink package was a joke!!! drinks under E6 were covered but most drinks were over this!!! We could get coffee on the drinks package but not hot chocolate?? wwhhhaattt?? they cost the same and both were under E6 but nope no hot chocolate. Had to pay for that!! Even the staff were saying our package was a joke!! MSC really need to look at the way they deal with their customers onboard their ships. Their staff at customer service..wow I have never met ruder staff ever. Everything was "such" a hastle. Their first answer was always "no". Followed by "I do not understand what you are saying" Put staff who can speak English fluidly on customer service!! We had a red light flashing on our phone (all night lightling up the whole cabin on off on off) the whole cruise and apparently no one could "understand the problem" let alone fix it!! Oh and add into your costs the price of shuttles from the port to the city at nearly every stop even though this is not mentioned anywhere!! Lowest was E8 per person. *** Also do not pay to go to spa room daily as they do not limit the number of people buying this package so the "quiet" place is loud and you constantly had to wait to get into the spa as no staff were there making anyone get out so people just stayed in for hours at a time.
