MSC Seaside is INCREDIBLE - Don't be fooled by the negative reviews
"To introduce myself, I am a 24 year old American guy that went on this trip with a friend and this is my third cruise (2 others were on Carnival. I like MSC more). I've never written a review before, but I feel..."Read More

We have now been on Three MSC Cruises over the last number of years . We were Super disappointed when we had to cancel for Jan 2021- due to the Covid shut down. Absolutely Loved the private island experience- We were only the second ship to stop there- Even though the crew was basically also visiting the island for their first time, you would be hard pressed to tell. The food on the island was ...

This was our 4th cruise with MSC and again I checked reviews to see about our ship and what people had to say. We were on the sister ship last year in Europe and it was excellent. My only complaint about this ship is that it is so similar to the Seaview it was almost like being on the same ship twice. Which just took away from the initial exploring but since we were with our daughter (21) and ...

First of all, we had an absolutely fabulous cruise! It was impressive enough that my husband and I are seriously considering doing a back-to-back next year. I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable cruises I've sailed. Our upgrade bid was accepted and we were assigned Suite 16051. - MSC Seaside February 29, 2020 - 7 night sailing. There were a few issues/concerns, 2 of which ...

Just a brief note. I adore the MSC Seaside. I have sailed on her 6 times in less than two years. Each time I sail the Yacht Club. If you are an NCL Haven or Carnival Havana type... sail in YC for the same price and you wont go back! I will also add I was surprised by the Cruise Critic Meet and Greet. I went to two, one for the February 1st sailing and one for the 8th sailing. The week ...

I find myself disappointed in all the negative reviews. We have gone on about 10 cruises, with RCL, NCL, Carnival and last March for the first time on Seaside. We enjoyed Seaside so much booked again this March. Although the cruise was a bit out of the ordinary because of Covid-19, I feel we can give it an accurate review, having been on it two years in a row, a first for us. First off, the ...

SIMPLY THE BEST! Of 250 + past cruises on six different major cruise lines, The Yatch Club was the BEST of LUXURY experiences of ALL past cruises! We have been blessed to be in wonderful suites on other ships and even SEASIDE, but nothing compares to the EXCELLENCE in SERVICE from every single person on staff in the YATCH CLUB! The ATTITUDE of every MSC emplyee to us and to ALL Yatch Club ...

Beginning of this February we made the one week Caribean Cruise on MSC Seaside. It was a special trip together with our almost 18 year old son. And the goal was to have together a wonderful, unforgetable time. It was not our first trip with MSC and so we really appreciate the 5% discount on our trip.To be save we also booked our flights from Austria with MSC too. When we booked it was ...

Please note that English is not my native tongue so excuse me any grammar or syntax error. We booked this cruise (7 nights, 8 days Caribbean) in february 2019, in Uruguay, South America, through a travel agency, with a MSC "early booking" offer. We were 28 travelers with ages ranging from 8 to 73 years old (9 families, 9 cabins). I was the "project leader" of this trip :) What we ...

The Seaside was extremely beautiful inside and out. The Swarovski staircases were exquisitely dazzling! The main dining room was spotless and the food was good. A simple "Thank You" brought you excellent service all over the ship, from cabin stewards to waiters and customer service staff. The lamb in the main dining room was perfectly cooked and expertly presented. All of the Specialty ...
