Unexpected gem

Jan 17th, 2021

We thoroughly enjoyed the Seaside. It was her inauguratal season and we just didn't see many of the complaints we'd read about online. The ship was beautiful and the staff were fantastic. I didn't notice a difference in the service vs an "American cruise line" and we felt like the staff were great for the entire cruise. Eventually we'd love to try out the Meraviglia as well!

A Wonderful Cruise for our family

Sep 13th, 2020

This was my 3rd cruise, my hubby's 2nd and my kiddos(ages 11 & 9) first. We all had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the food, shows, water park area and staff.

Definitely won’t sail this line again, the cruise line tried but the other patrons were so rude to us that we ended up not enjoying ourselves

Best MSC cruise to date

Apr 28th, 2020

Great ship, good food and fab staff. This really was the best MSC cruise we’ve done! If you want to take a look at our full ship tour and vlogs search HolidaysAtSea on YouTube, the ship tour is really comprehensive and you’ll see how beautiful she is, as well as examples of food and evening entertainment. Our vlogs will be added weekly! The speciality restaurants were all fab and we really recommend the drinks package if you like a drink! Cheaper to pre purchase beforehand.

Hard to enjoy because of bad weather. We had a lot of trouble with the MSC application. Would be great to be able to buy a specialty coffee package.
