The ship we boarded for the honeymoon with big dreams is a complete disappointment for us. Our rooms are without glass. We wanted to change it, they did not accept it. Even though the ship was empty. We bought the drink package. The drinks are of poor quality. The food does not reflect the MSC quality. That's why we decided to leave the ship early.

We are currently celebrating my granddaughters 9 birthday and having a blast! The ship is clean, the staff are amazing! I was worried about the selection and quality of food but o had no reason to worry! The food is good and there is plenty to select from the buffet! We did alacart for he sushi restaurant and the staff went above and beyond! Thank you Sherpa,Bevery and Monthsar for making my granddaughters day special!

Went May 2024 for a mom trip for the first time on MSC cruise. Check in was a breeze. Great pizza! Food was a hit or miss. Other than that the island was beautiful and relaxing

Wilson Gomez (bartender casino ) and jayson espiritu Balaney are the BEST bartenders I've EVER met!!!!!! They are definitely making THE difference in MSC cruises! They are so kind, warm and sweet. Every time I speak with them my day got better and better! MSC cruises you should be very happy with these people! - milou

We had an amazing experience doing a 4 night cruise on the MSC Seaside. About a week before the cruise we successfully “bid” on an upgrade to the Yacht Club—which is a cruise ship within a cruise ship. Best move we could have done! We were met at the dock by our butler who escorted us onto the ship, bypassing the normal check in lines. Check in was taken care of inside the Yacht Club at the dedicated Yacht Club concierge station while we waited in the Yacht Club lounge. Once we got checked in, our butler escorted us to our cabin, where our bags were already waiting for us. The Yacht Club cabins are very spacious with lots of storage space, and a good sized bathroom. Located at the front of the ship, the Yacht Club has a private lounge, dining room, pool with buffet, and two whirlpools. It includes wifi, drinks, and free access to the Thermal Area of the spa. You also do not need reservations for dining or attending the theater shows like you do with the other room categories. The ship as a whole was beautiful and well maintained. Great water park for kids, complete with water slides that go out over the ocean. It also has a bowling alley, game room, and multiple pools in addition to the private Yacht Club pool. Nightly entertainment in the theater was well done—especially the Michael Jackson show. We’ve been on other cruise ships and the theater shows seemed more like an “afterthought.” Not so on the MSC Seaside. The shows were well produced. Although we spent most of our time in the Yacht Club section of the ship, we did visit the main buffet for a breakfast and a lunch, and used the pool that has a retractable roof. The main buffets had a great variety, although the quality and offerings were not at the level of the Yacht Club. We did not see any of the other cabins, so we don’t know how they compare. We appreciated MSC’s apparent commitment to security and safety on this ship. Security was very vigilant in screening passengers exiting and especially entering. Also, they did a crew safety drill while we were on. I asked one of the crew how often they did drills. Her reply was, “too often—we’re always doing drills!” We liked her honest answer—it made us feel even safer. Special thanks to Jayson at the Yacht Club pool/buffet/bar who always had a smile and worked super hard. Sanjeev, our Yacht Club waiter for most of our meals, was awesome and very attentive. Leela, our butler, took great care of us ensuring that we had everything we needed and personally escorting us off the ship at each port of call. She not only escorted us off, but she walked us to where we met our ground transportation and made sure everything was set for us.
