The worst cruise I've been on.

The ship is huge, beautiful and well decorated. We had an inside cabin, which was about the same size as on any cruise line, but there were only two very small drawers and we had to ask for Kleenex. There was no ...

We chose this cruise for several reasons, 1. The price was great. 2. They were offering a special drink package, with wifi and $100.00 cabin credit. 3. They upgraded us to our highest level that we had with any ...

Expected disappointment based on last trip--got what we expected

Last trip on MSC Divina we said, "never again". This was based on noisy, pushy crowed public spaces and on the awful food. This year on MSC Seaside we had a very good price point offer and felt we couldn't resist ...

Beautiful ship, minus the service inefficiency and rude, pushy passengers

We chose this cruise because it seemed at the time to be the best deal of the season in respect to price, available packages, itinerary, and our own criteria. We were a group of 10 people in 4 cabins. 2 reserved ...
