WOW I'll be back on an MSC cruise next year! I don't think I'll leave the ship next time! So much to do and see! I may have mixed up my feed back by port but it was all wonderful.

We loved the Yacht Club experience. I don’t know that I could even consider a cruise outside YC because Nothing can compare!

Overall the ship was beautiful. The room was nice and the food was good. Plenty of activities to do. If you have kids they will love the water park and the zipline.

Great Family Cruise

Jul 9th, 2019

Overall a great experience. Very crowded though. Definitely a get what you pay for situation with the quality of cabin, food and beverage and excursions. I felt like initially I got a good rate with discounts on the grand suite($6000). But I had a $2000 bill the last day for excursions and dining upgrades. The Aurea experience was marketed as this amazing package with spa and private decks and signature dining etc etc. The reality is if you don't get that package the experience would have been significantly less rewarding and possibly not worth it. If you don't have the private deck you might not even be able to fit on the other decks. The signature dining doesn't include your teenagers, so bring $100 per person for them. The drink package was not even close to being worth it unless you are going to consume about 100 drinks in a week. So, great cruise. You get what you pay for however. Spa services were too expensive to justify.

Very nice cruise! Big, modern ship! Great excursions!

We had a great time and was a good mix of relaxation combined with exhilarating excursions. Make sure you research your excursions ahead of time and know what you are getting. Some excursions included lunch and, most importantly, alcoholic beverages! Some didn't. I would definitely go back.
