Review for MSC Seashore to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We arrived at our assigned time on Friday. Generally, boarding was smooth. However, the MSC website says one thing about testing, but the policy differed when we boarded. While the web site stated that IF we did not have a test within 48 hours of boarding we would be required to have a test at boarding. We went out of our way to get a test within the proscribed time, but were told at boarding ...

Just returned... worst experience ever... MSC Divina... was supposed to be our daughters best experience but kids pool were under maintenance all the trip... they have to eat at the end of the restaurant, with no access to food as they are not vaccinated... we can't visit Bahamas as the regulations (no kids allowed in Bahamas as they said)... kids can't sing in karaokes... so basically they are ...

This is my second MSC Cruise and my first one not being in the Yacht Club. I received a time to arrive at the port of 13:00 and 2 days before the cruise it was changed to 14:00. I hung out at the airport to avoid having to wait outside the terminal for 1 hour in the Orlando heat. I arrived at the terminal at 14:00, there were not a lot of people in security. Once you go thru security, you have to ...

I chose this cruise as a getaway weekend. At the time I didn’t realize it was the ship first cruise. During checking their system crashed and there was a very long delay checking in. Over an hour and a half of the line not moving. The kitchen in the main dining room was very backed up so the first nights dinner took over 2-1/2 hours. I have cruised many times and to me it seemed the ...

Glad to see Divina calling Port Canaveral home. Nice inaugural cruise from this port.

We've cruised on Disney, Carnival and NCL in the past, but when MSC offered a price that we couldn't refuse, we figured we'd give them a try...and we're glad we did. This was the Divina's first sailing from Port Canaveral, and first sailing since the pandemic. I'm glad to say that overall, MSC did a great job at preparing the ship and her crew for the return to sailing. This was a 3 day ...

I chose this because I just moved to Cape Canaveral and my new friends were going on it. It was all bad from getting on the ship to leaving it. The food in the dining room was horrible and the menu selections were awful I.e. the first night my selection was labeled a pig roll. There is no technology on this ship. No app to look at activities. Every time you order a drink they have to write ...

Booked this as last minute, Southampton to Barcelona. The ship is spotless cleaning all the time. Now the it’s that are not so good. No captains daily report Food in main restaurant not good, good choice but presentation not good ( did not look to eat) so spent time in buffet, their choice of food was very good. All waiting and bar staff very attentive. There was no dedicated coffee bar ...

Cruise from hell - severely understaffed

I booked this cruise as I had previously been on a Princess mini cruise, which was fantastic, and as I had heard from fellow cruisers that MSC were good, I decided to book this cruise. From the start it was a disaster. The embarkation process involved a 4 1/2 hr queue, which was not COVID safe as we were all in close contact for the 4 1/2 hrs, with other passengers before we were tested. I am ...

We have done 16 Cruises previously but we hadn’t tried MSC. We were left extremely disappointed with the whole trip and have never experienced anything like this with any other cruise company. Embarkation was 3.5 hours in a long queue outside with no seating, food or water and no information given out. (We did get some biscuits & coke towards the end of the check in procedure). We arrived at ...
