Customer reviews for MSC Seaside

The ship is lovely and clean and the staff are very pleasant and always happy to help you with anything. The shows in the night time were amazing, and the dining room meals were lovely.

Very dissatisfied with Iglu and the ship. Iglu asigned us a balcony room but did not notify us that we had a restricted view - the view was of the spare propeller. Also not notified that there was no transfer from hotel to port and on our return the arranged taxi transfer to the airport did not turn up forcing us to pay for another taxi. Will not be booking with Iglu again. Regarding the ship - was far too big. No escaping the thousands of people. Food was disgusting and cold. We had asked for a table of two which we got but the other tables were positioned three inches away so we may as well of been sitting on a table of ten!!
