MSC Seaside Cruise Review by Germy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Fantastica Balcony Stateroom

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 clear we want to see as much as possible from each country. So we also booked some expierences with MSC. But also some private ones.

Especially great is the Grandtour of the end of our Seaside sail, when you have an overnight flight to Europe. We got picked up in the morning by the ship and had the whole day our baggage with us in the bus. Our wonderful, in Cuba born guide made the day really special. We learned a lot about Country and People and never got bored with him. The Grandtour included everglades with Alligator watching and Miami Town tour with great lunch stop in Little Havana. The week before we had choosen the following expierences - at Jamaika we did the blue holes and river tubing (great fun), at Cayman Islands we swan with the stingrays, were corall snorkeling and starfish watching (really special). Mexiko - here we did the MSC tour with Cacao Experience, Tequlia farm and shopping. Because we where at the Bahamas 20 years ago, we directely went for a beach day at the wonderful Atlantis Hotel. This Hotel is just wonderful and the beach is really great. We liked everything on the ship himself, especially the food. What we did not take at this time was a drink package, because we aretravelling the most time over the day and when we drink, we like to get good cocktails or a real good bottle of wine. During the sea days we enjoied our MSC Funpass, which we used for the F1 Simulator and the 4D Cinema. In the end MSC really pleased my hubby and me and a 18 year old and this is not easy. Generally over the years our experience was, start the day with a smile and People will smile back to you. Please excuse my english, I am not a native Speaker.

Cabin Review

Fantastica Balcony Stateroom

The cabin was in the way we expected. You can see a lot of pics in the internet. So it was not a surprise. For us three ist was perfect and we as always liked our balcony. Over us there only was the pool area, but we had no noise problem with that. We only went to sleep in our cabin and enjoied getting into a new harbour or leaving it on our balcony. We slept with open balcony doors, which gave us a perfect holiday feeling.
