An empty ship all to yourself!

Review for Anthem of the Seas to Baltic Sea

We chose this cruise as all passengers needed to be from the UK, fully vaccinated and have passed a PCR test within 3 days of travel. This gave confidence that it would actually be safer to go cruising than stroll around the local shopping centre (where masks appear to have been abandoned). Another factor for this cruise was that it wouldn't be full. In fact, there were less than 1,000 ...

The safest i have felt for over a year . Ship was only 50% full due to rules , felt like the ship feels when you stay on board when in a port of call. Always found a lounger ,seat , we had a table on our own as everyone did . SO good we booked again ,the only chance of feeling like your on a top grade cruise. Food was great crew were great. So logistics as it can be a bit complicated , The ...

The ship’s inaugural cruise post pandemic was a 6 nighter to Dover,Belfast and Liverpool from Southampton.The crew and staff gave us an emotional welcome on board and a guard of honour at disembarkation,aswell as gifts in our cabin during the cruise.They also upgraded us to a balcony cabin which was a treat.Throughout the cruise the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and respectful.We received ...

Not a bad outing given the circumstances

Oh the great debate: to cruise or not to cruise amid a global pandemic? But like most folks, after 15 months of restrictions, we decided to take a punt on a Western UK cruise - thinking that was least likely to be cancelled. I’ll be honest - we would not have considered a spin around GB under any other circumstances. We had not travelled with Marella before. But we’re impressed by the fare ...

If you’re lucky enough or can afford to, you have to experience the luxury and attention that yacht club is onboard MSC Virtuosa, the service and attention from all staff inside the yacht club is beyond amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Reynaldo the pool attendant is amazing, he’s so attentive and all you have to do is move and he’s beside you helping to adjust the lounger, offering drinks, ...

I'll say from the start, we did lower our expectations for this cruise. Friend's have sailed with Marella many times and explained this is a very different product from MSC. We stayed in a mini suite with a large balcony. This had a good size shower, easy to move around the compact space. Only comment is it can be tight to get into the actual shower. The bed was comfortable and liked that it ...

This was the inaugural cruise for fare paying passengers and was for three days visiting Dover and Portland and due to COVID when not sitting eating or drinking all passengers and staff had to wear a mask when moving about the Ship and had to undertake a daily temperature check. Any way we were given a boarding time of 12 o'clock on the day of departure and when we arrived were shocked to ...

Spectacular ship and fantastic experience

Review for MSC Virtuosa to Baltic Sea

Virtuosa is an amazing ship. It's not just the fun gimmicks like the robot bartender or the design your own chocolate bar, but she's designed with great viewing spaces to sit and watch the sea. The galleria is a beautiful inside shopping precinct with the shops and restaurants along it and the dome which plays 3 minute shows was absolutely incredible - people started spontaneously applauding after ...

We love to cruise but we’re limited where we can cruise to and from due to Covid so chose the MSC virtuoso cruise in the uk mainland. Have done around 10 cruises with various lines, RC, Celebrity, P&O, Carnival, Princess, 1st time with MSC. We’re actually still cruising on it as I write - staff are very attentive and friendly, no waiting for food or drink orders even though there is only table ...

A truly magnificent ship, but it still has a few problems and what will it be like with 6,000+ passengers onboard??

We usually cruise 4 or 5 times a year, so we were desparate to get cruising again, then in May 2021 we saw on TV the new ship MSC Virtuosa arriving in Southampton. We googled the ship and liked what we saw, so we decided to give it a try, as we have never been with MSC before. We normally reserve a butler suite, but the Virtuosa only offers butlers in their Yacht Club suites, which are quite ...
