  1. Glad to see the Grandiosa is still cruising. Not an easy task in middle of the travel restrictions.
  2. Deck 16 is the YC lounge and deck 18 the YC restaurant. All decks are very quiet. I would book deck 16 because it's closest to the lounge ( drinking ) 🙂
  3. I found the Champagne bar is the most quiet bar in the ship. Every time we walked by there are plenty of seats available. At the top deck of the central atrium not much people passing by.
  4. What cabin did you have ? I'v signed for the Cruisecritics Meet&Mingle. We could meet there !
  5. I've signed for the upgrade. The new cabin is 18003. That's a YC balcony at the highest deck. The offer was actually an YC inside cabin but MSC made a free upgrade from YIN to Balcony. Thanks MSC !! This makes me think about the availlable rooms in YC. At the time of booking all rooms were reserved but now there are still YC balconies free. A lot of cancellations must be going on. I realize the itinerary changed all the time and I'm familiar with it. I'm from Belgium so the difficulty is more if I can enter USA next March for holiday. When the cruise stops in Barcelona it's no
  6. It is about the 20-days reposition cruise from Miami to Barcelona on the MSC Seaside next year in March. I did the booking long before this whole Corona crisis broke out. Somewhere late 2019 I think. At that time I booked a Bella inside cabin for €1000 per person. I wanted a YC cabin but no YC cabins were available. I put myself on a waiting list for a YC cabin. Now this week we got an upgrade offer from Bella inside to YC Balcony for €1000 extra. So the price is now €2000 per person for a YC Balcony. But there is a caveat. The itinerary internary has change. The starting point is now Por
  7. MSC is bringing out Meraviglia+ class and World class ships in a few year. They need to recup the money from older ships to funds these new ships.
  8. Carnival ship, MSC Seaside and Harmony of the Seas on 19th September 2018
  9. The reservations for the spciality restaurants are done at the YC customer service desk. That is right behind the main YC entrance. The reservations for the Cirque shows are also done there. In fact you can do everything there. Deposits for your onboard account, booking excursies etc. No need for the main customer desk at the atrium. The daily programs are different for all ships and itineraries. You won't find them online.
  10. YC members can get drinks throughout the ship from any bars and restaurant. Only exception is the coffeebar at the Phillipe chocolatery. Also no pancakes and gelato on the other side. The YC drinkpackage is the same as the drink package premium. On your first visit to the YC area you are taken to the YC lounge and the headbutler will explain everything in details.
  11. The MSC fun pass isn't necessary for onboard activities. It's basically a discount card. Example, you pay 100$ for the card and you get 180$ worth of fun. You can use it for bowling, rope climbing, race simulator, 4D cinema etc. There are several internet packages. Read the desciption about the package. The basic package can only connect to 1 device while the most premium internetpackage can connect 4 devices at once. They varies also in total GB you can use.
  12. I was on MSC Splendida and the cabin steward empty it without problems. No charges afterwards.
  13. MSC has a daily program. It will be on your bed on your embarkening day. And there is also a daily program for the next day. It will be delivered in the evening. All the information will be on paper, even the theme party.
  14. What ship are you on ? Each ship has a different agenda.
