It was our 5 th cruise of Msc, the cabins are smaller than on Fantasia, Splendida and Poesia. No bathrobes in the cabin, no fruits basket and wine at arrival in the cabin. On Seaside you dont find great lobby with piano as on another ship. You have to make reservation for the theatre a day before which is mandatory. Seashore restaurant much more beautiful than Ipanema but be careful of Mr Antonio-maitre of the restaurant who is very rude and makes "monkey business" with guests about the tables. The crew dont check if all passengers participate in emergency drill. Excursion to Portofino -Just before departure they informed us that boat from Marghera to Portofino is cancelled cause bad weather and in fact all boats were working scheduled and weather was beatiful. Wonderful jungle aquapark. In easy package plus all the time was missing Desperados, wine Santa Cristina and Red Bull.... Wonderful and polite waiters and bar attendents.

We have recently returned from a MSC cruise sailing from France to Italy and Spain and returning to France. The ship has lots of activities for all ages. The staff in the restaurants and bars are so friendly and helpful. We stayed in a balcony room (11228) on the 11th floor. Balcony has 2 chairs and a table/footrest. The room had a large double bed and bunk beds which converted into a sofa. There were usb points as well as eu charging, an ice bucket, mini bar. The bathroom was equipped with sink, toilet and shower. There was shower gel and shampoo in dispensers. The marketplace buffet was on the 8th floor and there was another buffet on deck 16 which was open at lunch. There is a variety of food and enough to keep the kids happy. As a warning at certain times it was like a cattle market and was difficult to find a seat. The main restaurant served lovely food but was rushed due to the sitting times. The pools are lovely and open at different times. The kids loved the jungle pool which is salt water and the kids pool. Down part is that there is no seating around the kids pool to keep an eye on them. The water slides were great. There is an arcades area which is lacking with games. You can pre book for bowling but everything else you can just turn up to when it's open. The biggest down we experienced was the customer service on board the ship. We complained 4 times to reception about "young adults" running up and down the corridor until 6am playing music and shouting. MSC did nothing even after talking to the director of the ship. We hardly slept and have 2 young children who also suffered. My husband also had his cruise card stolen. It was used in another bar but luckily the drinks weren't chargeable. MSC only care about getting your money from your booking and that's it. Its certainly a once done never again from us.

The ship is beautiful, the service oat diner was great with Aya Castro and Hacel Francisco. I had a great time, the only downside is that gets to crowded.

The excursion team on this ship is very unorganized, unhelpful and has no empathy for the paying customers. In fact the staff argues with the guests. All excursions are cut short due to hours of waiting time before departures. Bad language skills during and wrong info on their descriptions. Absolutely not worse the money spent. Better to organize own excursions
