  1. Goto msccruises.co.uk, select Manage Booking then select Before Departure then select Service Charges. I would recommend you copy the page to you photo which you can use if get any difficult with Guest Relations onboard. It clearly says ".........should you wish to adjust or cancel .... you may do so on board "
  2. Better still book in the US where deposits are fully refundable up to Final payment. You can book both RCL and MSC in the states without any problem. Headline prices these days are about the same but you will get added perks like OBC and prepaid tips and any price drops prior to FP will be honoured without question.
  3. Sidari...... You obviously have a different cruise contract - LOL. I reiterate no reference to mandatory service charges on my contract and nothing on their website at the time of my booking hence any subsequent change is unenforceable. I have 3 future YC cruises booked all with refundable deposits (US agent) and any problems these cruises are expendable.
  4. No mention of service charges being mandatory on my booking invoice. For clarification of any issue with your booking it refers me to their website msccruises.co.uk. As I mentioned earlier it is very clear that service charges can be adjusted or cancelled when onboard - to me that is very clear, NOT mandatory and unenforceable.
  5. Just goto msccruises.co.uk choose Manage Booking then Before Departure. If you now select SERVICE CHARGES you get this :- SERVICE CHARGE Each day, MSC Cruises will debit the Service Charge to your onboard account. The charge covers the onboard hospitality services actually enjoyed and is calculated according to the itinerary chosen and the number of nights. For further details of the amounts payable in each currency, please refer to the table below. However, should you wish to adjust or cancel any of the daily hotel service charges in the unlikely event that you did not receive a satisfactory service, you may do so on board SUMMER 2019 & WINTER 2019 - 2020 / SUMMER 2020 & WINTER 2020 - 2021 I will be taking a copy of their statement and will ask for them to remove the charge from my account.
  6. Preziosa TV channels in Caribbean was terrible, they had ESPN but only in the sports bar. Glad we had the daily news paper.
  7. Assuming you are from the UK, I would say YES although have never tried. We can book via Germany without any hassle so don't see why you can't from Italy. Check to see if the particular cruise is being offered to the German market and try them. Otherwise the only way to be sure is make contact and ask.
  8. You need to go to the Cruise Reviews section as there are plenty of reviews of Preziosa YC. You will need to scan though as about 1 in 15 reviews is for the YC, most are extremely positive unlike the rest of the ship. https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/memberreviews/getreviews.cfm?action=ship&ShipID=696
  9. Variety is the spice of life and could well fill a slot in their ever growing fleet. They will need to improve upon their YC dining as that is definitely the low point of the current offering.
  10. Just checked the latest reviews for the ship, as expected they haven't changed - it's still dire. Why do people waste their money with P&O when there is so much better available to cruisers today.
  11. Maybe not wise to make reference to booking overseas.....................
  12. It's a no brainer, choose Celebrity every time. Very easy to get from Miami Airport to Fort Lauderdale. The Tri-rail operates from within MIA, the station is next to the Car Rental Centre and only costs $3.75/pp from MIA to FLL. We usually take the train to Sheridan Street Station, Fort Lauderdale and spent the night at the Holiday Inn which is just 100 yards from the station. Then take UBER to the port the following morning for $12. For Tri-Rail - http://www.tri-rail.com/more-trains-on-weekends.asp
  13. Thanks, I see that but that's invalid if the T&C say different. Most people don't book via the MSC website, they use a Travel Agent as I do and they make no reference to a service charge being mandatory.
