Mobile Off on our first MSC cruise today

Am excited but also apprehensive as Iíve heard some bad things about them!

Oh well, Iíll know soon enough. Sail away is 8pm tonight.

Southampton / Zeebrugge / Rotterdam / Hamburg / Le Harve.

First time travelling with 2 babies (8months and 2 years) so if anyone has any questions let me know xx

Have a great holiday, we were on the MSC Seaside in June/July this year leaving from Miami, we absolutely loved it. The negative reviews we read before we went were about rudeness in passengers, which we did experience, but you can have that issue anywhere you go. We loved it, hope you do too

Thank you. Iím hoping as itís a síton round trip it will be a predominately British passenger load so the pushing in and rudeness might not be as bad as Iíve read on the med cruises. Who knows?

Iíll soon find out 😂

We were also on MSC Seaside this summer, had a great time! We preferred lots of things on MSC against Royal Caribbean.

Have a great time!

We're off on our first cruise with MSC from Miami in November - hoping we've chosen well

OP let us know how it goes and have a fabulous time!

Well itís not a round trip síton. The cruise officially starts in Hamburg and basically goes round and round on the same loop like a hop on hop off bus. People coming and going at diff ports. Itís very strange.

I think all of their cruises work like that.

My parents have been on a few MSC and they like them.
