Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We absolutely loved our experience on the MSC seascape. A highlight for us was our waiter in the Aurea restaurant Nischay, he always had our drinks ready for us, excellent recommendations and had great fun and banter with us too!

Worst cruise out of 6. Don't be tempted by the low upfront cost. We started out at $1250 each for a 2 week cruise. Total cost was $6,000. The food at the sit down dinner is a joke. 2 Shrimp entree and something they call NY Strip. I've had better steak at the Waffle House. We ate the buffet for 2 weeks just because the dinner choices were so poor. Of 5 entree choices, 3 are leftovers from the day before and the portions are tiny. Kids in diapers in the pool and hot tub. Practically no night time entertainment or at least nothing worth attending. No washcloths to bathe with for most of the cruise. No bar soap. Toilet paper must have come from a prison. After they refused to cancel and refund my second week when we returned to Miami, we ended up getting off the ship to buy soap, toilet paper, and a loofa for the second leg of the trip. The $2,000 we spent for the beverage plan was a waste of money. Drinks are watered down with low alcohol content and sugary additives. Started drinking doubles on the 2nd week to no avail. You are better off drinking in port than wasting $2,000 on the boat. Not to mention the additional mandatory 15% tip on each drink that you must pay at the end of the cruise. The staff does a great job, but this cruise is below Carnival on so many levels. Please don't waste your money. They have a group on FB for the cruise line, but conversations are moderated. Read reviews elsewhere to get the truth. These folks have a LONG way to go.

My wife and I decided to go on our first cruise to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and this ship certainly didn't disappoint. Being new to this type of holiday we had done some exploring in the background to know the hints and tips from the frequent cruisers and determine if we wanted to do any excursions. We were in cabin 10210 (Queen Room) which is on deck 10 and has a balcony, we also booked the Fantastica package - it was excellent and allowed us the top premium drinks, discounted specialty dining experiences and other benefits.. The cabin was lovely, had everything required and the housekeeping team ensured any request was taken care off We embarked the ship at 11.45am and were on board and in your cabin by 12.30, very smooth process and helpful staff. Initially when you arrive on board and make your way to the main atrium its a little overwhelming, all those people and in this space. My first thought was - this will be a nightmare if everywhere is like this - how wrong was I in a couple of hours everyone had cabins and dispersed throughout the ship. We had a ball and we ate, danced, drank, partied, were entertained, gambled, socialized, learned and much more throughout the cruise. In my opinion the ship is amazing and has everything you would ever want however its the Staff who make this experience something exceptional and here are some of the key people we connected with: - Vignesh at Hola Tacos, so good to chat with. Carlos and Macgyver in the Green Wave restaurant - i have a few food intolerances and these guys looked after me at every visit. In the scene bar we were always well taken car of by Artama Konsang Agus, what a bartender - thanks so much. In the casino Alroy, Widi, Edrin, Yoga, Hem, Satria, Jhon, Kyle & Beverlyn, what a team of excellent bartenders - we were well looked after at all times. We booked a couple of excursions for our trip, 1st one was to Puerto Seco Beach Club in Jamaica. Bit disappointing, place was a little dated and requires some refreshing. Sun beds/style a little lacking, food and drinks service was not the best. I expected to hear reggae music all day form the DJ however he played 1 reggae song that I was aware of. Food was nice, drinks and the queue was exasperating and not worth it. Shower and change facilities are good but overall I would not go back. Second excursion was in Grand Caymen - Best of Caymen, it was fab. First we went to hell, our guide for the day was Richard from Tripadeal, he is so nice and has a vast knowledge of the islands. He then tood us to the rum cake factory and tasting. Then to the turtle nursery, then over the road to the Dolphin pools. Lastly we went to 7 mile beach - trip was low cost, 3 hours max in the morning, loads of places and with a great guide - would highly recommend. We also chose the Specialty Dinning Experience and booked Hola Tacos (fab, the food just keeps on coming). Ocean Cay - food was nice but not as good as the food and service we had in Hola Taco and the Butchers Cut Steakhouse. The butchers cut was really good the staff and food are excellent and if on board again I would return to Hola Tacos and the Butchers Cut. So in summary, 1st cruise, amazing ship, the staff are all outstanding. Do some work in advance, determine the excursions, upgrade to full food and drink packages and brace yourself for an amazing experience. Would return to MSC Seascape and recommend to others.

The staff was horrible!! Awful attitudes except for Moses. He was the only wait staff that didn’t ignore us. Pedro )cruise director) was great we loved him. The wait staff doesn’t like African Americans I can only assume they feel like we don’t tip but we ended up tipping Moses and our steward a substantial amount just because he wasn’t rude to us. I was yelled at by staff and my daughter! They sold us the photo package and we only got some pictures. I took my entire immediate family of six and for almost $10000 you wouldn’t expect to be treated badly.

An Amazing Time Aboard the MSC Seascape So, my husband and I decided to shake things up and try out MSC Seascape this time around. We're pretty seasoned cruisers, having sailed with Disney, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival before. We were eager to explore what MSC had to offer, especially given the mixed reviews we had seen. And let me tell you, MSC was a pleasant surprise! Getting Onboard: Smooth Sailing For us, embarkation of the MSC Seascape was the best we have experienced thus far in cruising. Most of the things we needed to do prior to boarding were completed in the app or online prior to our arrival. When we did arrive we quickly checked our bags with the porter and headed in. The line moved very quickly and we got onto the ship quickly. From dropping our bags with the porter to stepping on the boat was no more than 45 minutes maximum. Once we were on the ship we quickly found our way to our rooms and found our keys waiting for us at the doors. We were able to check the rooms and drop off our carry-on luggage. Our Home Away from Home: Cozy and Clean Our balcony state room 12066, was comfy, spacious and spotless. We had a larger balcony and absolutely LOVED this room! We loved it so much we booked one just like this one for a cruise in January 2025! There was plenty of closet and storage which is always a plus. And can we talk about Fred, our room attendant? His impeccable service and genuine warmth made our stay truly memorable. Always had a smile and kept our room in top shape. Dining: Food, Glorious Food We were assigned the 5:30pm seating for dinner in the Green Wave Dining Room. We had very good service in the MDR “Green Wave” for the 2 dinners that we ate there. The 5:30 seating was a little early for us, so we did opt to eat in the buffet for the remainder of our meals. The menu changed every day and mostly we found the food to be good to very good. One of the unique things to this cruise line was the amount of staff that we saw in the buffet areas. It was so refreshing to see the staff enjoying a meal in the public areas. They are not required to eat in the staff areas, they are encouraged to eat with the guests, and I am here for it! It gave the whole place a friendly vibe. Entertainment Galore: Shows and More The shows were a blast! Big productions with singing, dancing, and all that jazz. We caught pretty much every show in the main theater. Loved that they had seats of different sizes, so everyone could kick back and enjoy. Poolside Paradise: Soak Up the Sun The ship's pools and whirlpools provided the perfect setting for relaxation and rejuvenation. With three main pools, including an adults-only area, and a plethora of whirlpool options, we never felt crowded, even on sea days. The poolside beds offered a luxurious spot to soak up the sun, while the infinity whirlpools on Deck 8 near the Loft Lounge and Sports Bar provided a serene escape from the hustle and bustle. Bliss. Ship Vibes: Glitzy and Gorgeous MSC Seascape is one swanky ship. From the moment we stepped on board, it was all sparkles and style. There are loads of places to hang out and do your thing. The ship is overall beautiful, modern, glitzy and extremely clean. The public rooms are spacious with comfortable seating with an inviting vibe. There are lots of areas to meet with friends, have a drink, play some cards or just relax. While our cruise was completely sold out, you never felt as if the ship was more than half full. I never saw a line at a bar, for a show, for a meal, other than a small line in the buffet. And despite being fully booked, it never felt cramped. They did a great job at dividing the space on the ship so that no space ever feels crowded. I think that is one of the things I loved most about this cruise. Crew Love: Friendly Faces Everywhere The crew was awesome. Seriously, they were like Disney Cruise-level friendly. From our exceptional room steward, Frederick Vilchez, to the infectious smile of Sandy Francois in the sports bar, and the boundless energy of Mark Yucor, the pool attendant, every encounter left a positive, long lasting impression. Special mention goes to Elisa Sonaglio, whose expertise and friendliness as a Future Cruise Consultant made us feel like old friends. Their genuine passion for their work and dedication to guest satisfaction truly elevated our experience. Saying Goodbye: Effortless Farewell On the final day, when it was time to go, we had been assigned a disembarkation time of 9:15am. We left our staterooms at 7am and went and had breakfast in the MDR. Then we spent time in the in some comfy chairs on the deck disembarkation time. We were off the ship, retrieved our luggage and through customs within 15 minutes. I would say that Embarkation and Disembarkation of the MSC Seascape both at the terminal and on port days was the best I have personally experienced in my cruising experience to date. Final Thoughts: Best Cruise Yet! All in all, we had a blast on MSC Seascape. We're already counting down the days until our next two cruises with them. Seriously, it was hands down our best cruise experience yet. If you're thinking about cruising with MSC, just do it. You won't regret it.
