Alaska was awesome, what we enjoyed the most was the Glacier Bay
, the Captain did everything to let us enjoy the glacier at its
best, all the crew were fantastic, very helpful and smiling all the
time, we try all the speciality restaurants,they were really good
and our favorites were the Tepanyaky and Cagney's , the rooms were
clean and cozy, Francis did a great job and he always left a nice
towel figure for us.
This was our first cruise on MSC and since it was our 30th
Anniversary Cruise, we upgraded to the Yacht Club at $2,000 pp. The
Yacht Club included all food and drinks in their Top Sail Lounge,
One Pool Grill, and the Muse Restaurant, and a Butler who was to be
available 24 hrs.
The Food was better than the buffet and service started out
superb but declined a little each day. There was definitely a
language barrier, but the Staff greeted us every morning with Good
Morning and later Good Evening. Simple things were easy, but things
as complicated as a "Happy 30th Anniversary" Cake (given to us as
Happy 30th Birthday)required lengthy conversations with multiple
staffers and often not resolved.
The biggest disappointment was the wet carpet the entire 7 days
that filled our Stateroom with mildew and caused allergic reactions
and illness for both of us. The Butler and maintenance staff kept
saying they needed time to find leak and repair and would complete
while we were off ship at our first port, but they never made the
repairs during the first, second or third day in ports.
would be perfect for older, less mobile people who enjoy staying in
their rooms and not wanting to have some activities during the day.
The same food was served daily except for The Muse that served a
lot of fish. The Excursions were poorly run and busses had no a/c
and the excursion details were highly exagerated.
I would cruise MSC again, BUT only if I had an inexpensive
Groupon like couples we met on the beach (they paid $200 pp - we
paid $2,000 pp) at Grand Turk (deviated from Great Stirrup Cay due
to weather) The Divina is a beautiful new ship that was a pleasure
to tour, but there were never any chairs for sitting out on the
decks. Overall I rated it as 3 Stars, but should be 2.5.
We got on the Liberty of the seas December 26, 2013 and we had
fun. It would be nice if it was a 7-day cruise but, it was a
4-night cruise. Here is how it was like.
Hotel/Embarking: We stayed at a hotel. It was the Comfort inn.
The hotel was okay but the food wasn't okay. My parents told me not
to eat the boiled eggs because they were rubbery. Embarking was
okay but the lines were long.
Activities: We had alot of fun. The hzo zone and pool was fun.
The pools were freshwater. The promenade was pretty nice to see.
The florider was amazing. We didn't do the flowrider but, we
Children's Club: My sister had alot of fun. She met some
friends. We brought other kids and they had fun.
Cozumel: We did an island tour. We loved it. We visited the
ruins, did the Tequila tour, and more. We had two vans. The
problems are on one van, it had the "B-word" on the back.
Cabin: We booked a balcony and we loved it. The doors were okay
and the bathroom was great.
Service: The service was
great. The dining room treated our cousins 3-year old (now 4)
really nice. The staff in cafe promenade was nice.
Food: The food was good. Nothing went wrong in the dining room.
The fries tasted good. I was not sure about the cheese plate but, I
will try it again.
The entertainment was good. We did the Micheal Jackson
experience and it was the best. The 70s party was good. We had alot
Overall: We will recommend this ship to our friends because it
was the best ship we been on. It would be good for a B2B
