MSC Seaview ReviewsView Cruise Deals
We travelled in yacht club and service throughout ship was excellent. Our transfer was messed up however as iglu didn't inform msc of the flight change and we had to get a taxi at our own cost
The admin before the cruise - by both the Cruise company and the travel agent - was below expectations. Once on board, the service was excellent
MSC Seaview is beautiful. The ship is a pleasure to be aboard. The staff are fantastic and could not be more helpful and friendly. The food was excellent with a great choice every day. The ship was super clean with covid protocols being adhered to very well. The entertainment, activities and excursions were a tad lackluster, but that was a lot down to covid, unfortunately. The itinerary was really good. The theatre crew and dancers was consistently excellent. Would I do this cruise again... hell yes!
Well....what can I say? This has had to be the most amazing holiday that we have had so far (and we have had hundreds) there is absolutely nothing to fault on this ship, we are now actively looking for our next cruise next year.....we are officially hooked. Thank you.x
It was a lovely ship with well appointed cabins and nice deck areas. The food and drinks were to an excellent standard, and staff were as per other cruise lines - very courteous, friendly and professional. The main shows were very good but unfortunately the only downside with the entertainment was that there was not much on for us after the main show and during the day when the ship was in port. We were also caught out with the service charges which were 70 euros each person (210 euro in total!) so make sure you allow for this as we never did. The staff deserve this service charge - just saying to allow for it as many did not. When we went to customer services many more were there too! All in all would certainly do another MSC cruise.
Just back from an amazing week on Seaview cannot fault iglu .Cabin was perfect. Supported in changing booking and adding on an extra person and cabin. We booked our own flights and all went smoothly. Massively impressed with the ship , it's layout, facilities,Cleanliness. Could not fault anything. Service charge was added on board which did not tally with our booking confirmation but guest services removed immediately. Food in Silver Dolphin was good choice and portions just right size. Our writers were fantastic and made the effort to chat each day. As a first timer I had no expectations of embarking and disembarking but this went smoothly. Some waiting but this is to be expected when dealing with large groups of passengers. Already looking at where I can go to next
The ship is absolutely beautiful, stunning in fact, however, be ready for the pushing, shoving, rudeness of the other travellers which generally are European, Don’t queue and have no respect for anyone. They made the ship a mess, leaving rubbish, smashed bottles to which the staff struggled to keep up with. On the all inclusive guests, Taking drinks / ice creams and then leaving half. On elegant evening we had taken ball gowns and tucks, on board ship we looked silly as other guests had made no effort at all even wearing swim shorts in the cocktail bars, might seem snobbish but that would be expected on a elegant evening. So don’t bother with your elegant dresses. The staff were surprised at manners and reacted with excellent service, they were having in average to work 14 hour days and they were physically and mentally tired, god help the reception staff who had a permanent queue of complaints. MSC are a Mediterranean company and because they are not British and used to manners, they do not see this as an issue. It’s the first time I have tried MSC and would normally cruise with P&O, Cunard or Princess to which I will now defiantly stick to.
A super cruise with a great itinerary enabling us to visit lots of places. This was our first cruise and on the whole we were impressed with the accommodation and the ship. We were a little disappointed about a few things, the main one being the disorganisation at times. It took 3 hours of queuing to embark on the first day and some of the organisation for tender boats was disorganised. Be aware of the additional service charge which also caught us by surprise when we were billed €70 per person at the end of the cruise.
Everything and more on this ship. Brilliant staff. Had an issue about our room directly under a buffet restaurant. They moved us immediately. Would definitely go back. Thanks everyone.
Sailed on the Seaview out of Barcelona 5th October with preferential embarkation which was very efficient doing various ports in France Italy & Malta.The ship was brand new and super clean.We had a suite for 3 right at the back of deck 12 and it was extemely comfortable quiet with great views from the balcony.The food was of a very high standard although the breakfast in the buffet was slightly fraught in the morning so next time we would use the MDR where feshly poached egg and toast were freely avaiable.We had access to the Aurea Deck and Spa and used those facilities every day which were first class including sauna steam room cold room and Jacuzzi.A free massage was also included and was very relaxing. Some reviews have mentioned noisy passengers but this can be evident on any cruise ship no matter what the nationality involved and actually a bit of atmosphere is never a bad thing in a large restaurant.Entertainment was aimed at a mainly European audience but was enjoyable nevertheless We would definitely sail with Msc again and found them great value for money with the all inclusive being a proper deal with branded spirits unlike othercruise lines where drinks are really not as they are promoted.Staff could not have been more helpful although there was little attention paid to hand sanitation when entering the restaurants. We look forward to our next voyage with them.
