  1. You will get a email....Usually the day of your sailing. This happened to us the day of our sailing.
  2. I question whether the YC bartenders even know or check?? My daughter drank champagne throughout cruise.... One evening she ventured down to Champagne bar on Seaside...and had a glass of champagne down there. She asked for same brand she had been drinking in YC..... When I reviewed my end of cruise invoice I had a $30 drink charge showing (lol)..... So unless your ordering top shelf liquor outside of YC.... I see no need to do it
  3. We were on Seaside for 11/23 cruise... I waited a couple weeks and received nothing. Instead of calling I decided to email MSC... I received a response within 24 hours... But as other have also stated...it said it would be applied when we make our next reservation. They have a record of our cruise and to mention it when we book. (Sure thing...LOL.....I'm sure this will happen!!). I never book directly with a Cruise line....but assuming they do find my trip information...it looks like I will be forced to book directly with MSC to get the voucher credit.
  4. This doesn't sound right... I recently sailed on Seaside.... I am a Voyager member and booked thru a 3rd party internet agency. I booked this cruise last minute so I payed in full at time of booking. Several days later I emailed the travel agency and explained I am entitled to a 5% discount as a Voyager member. Within 48 hours I was issued a new invoice showing the 5% discount and was told MSC would credit this amount to my credit card. Approximately 2 weeks later the credit appeared on my credit card.
  5. Thanks for the tip... Eventhough I booked through an Internet Agency...I will check with them and see if they received any information regarding my voucher.
  6. Sidari ...I agree. However I have learned that MSC is so inconsistent with their practices.im likely to get a email with the amount next week...lol. I've read others who supposedly received an email with the amount. I can only hope!!
  7. I was on 11/23-30 Seaside sailing. Sent email to MSC-Usa asking for status on my discount voucher ....Believe it or not....This is the reply I received!l I don't trust their system in keeping history of this. I want something in writing!? The discount will apply when you book your next sailing, there you will see the credit. Thank you for choosing MSC Cruises!
  8. I would tend to agree... I forgot to turn my phone off and into airplane mode. When I woke up I received a message from T Mobile stating I had unlimited text and 2GB of data at no charge...and I would be charged 25 cents a minute for phone calls. I did text several times during the cruise....and when I received my monthly bill....There was no additional charges
  9. Yes...all of you can be connected concurrently. And don't worry about disconnecting.3 of us always stayed connected...Didn't come close to using all the 6GB. Then again we mostly used it for web searching and social media
  10. For what its worth.....Seaside was smell free on our Thanksgiving week cruise.... with the exception of a middle eastern individual who ate 8 hard boiled eggs and a huge plate of french fries for dinner in the YC right next to us one evening!! lol
  11. Just off Seaside and stayed in YC... My band was blue and gold with YC showing on it.... It stood out from other bands I saw.... It worked perfectly on the priority elevator and I never used my card except for leaving ship. When ordering drinks at bars outside YC.... Worked just fine and of course no charge
  12. You will have no problem what so ever.... 15-20 min cab ride to Airport. WE just returned yesterday off of MSC Seaside. WE didn't disembark until 9 am (disembarakation started at 7am but we chose to leisurely leave ship) and were thru customs and at the cab station at 9:30 and at Miami Airport by 10am
  13. Totally agree... We visited Maya Chan this past Monday (11/25)..... Wonderful experience !!!
  14. Let's put it this way.... My wife and I sat comfortably on couch together with space between us.... Just translate that to sleeping on a bed. Additionally my wife slept on pullout with my daughter one night when my grandson hijacked the bed.... 😂 Also... Look at room designator... Some YC cabins show a Pullman and couch for sleeping four... I believe our cabin (18012) shows a triangle designate which is a double sleeping couch
  15. Just returned from Seaside.... Staff informed passengers Seashore will eventually be replacing Seaside out of Miami as they continue their North America focus
  16. While I prefer Carnival over RCL.....RCL does move/change its beverage package pricing up until embarkation. I regularly checked on my app and it ranged from $52pp to as low as $44pp/day. But it went up and down...and even if it dropped it would still go back up.
  17. Hopefully you are correct for other passengers sailing on her. I did not purchase gellato so I am going on what I read for the past 6 or so months....I do know they charge for ziplining...although for some reason the did not charge my 10 yr old grandson but told my daughter she would be charged. Thanks for clarifying!
  18. I am sure they will provide for you.We often ordered/requested items not on menu during dinner and they were happy to oblige. Staff was wonderful and truly wanted to meet/exceed your needs.... and I noticed all the staff in other areas of ship seemed happy and very outgoing and fun to be around!
  19. We are not big show/theater fans.... But since we took our adult daughter this time. The one show we went to was the Michael Jackson show on Thursday evening. Our family all agreed it was amazing. We went to the middle show and my daughter stayed for the late show as well and said it was even better with different Michael Jackson songs! I cannot recall the shows from our March 2018 cruise... But here are the shows from the cruise we were just on. Sunday - The Wizard Monday - My Life in Music Tuesday - Fly Wednesday - Peter Punk Thursday - Starwalker (Michael Jackson) Friday - The Dream Lastly being a YC passenger...They had a whole section of Theatre dedicated to YC passengers.. Our Butler escorted us to our seats
  20. Just off Seaside and I walked regularly on deck 19 ...exiting from YC thru Aurea area. Very spacious sundeck. Nice covered bar area...although hours of operation were mostly noonish till about 6pm. Jacuzzis on both sides and area never appeared crowded. Priority dining seating in main dining room. Based on MSC price points...I would think Aurea would be a "must" for cruisers trying MSC for first time and equal the average balcony pricing for other cruise lines. Still close to general deck areas where the masses of passengers gather
  21. Just off Seaside YC.... No changes other than they charge for zipline and gellato.... But these changes were made a while back
  22. Sitting at Airport... Just off Seaside.... 2nd cruise on Seaside (both in YC).... It did not disappoint and IMO was better than my 1st YC cruise. Will be doing a cruise recap later this week... But in the meantime if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them.
  23. Just off Seaside today... We were in cabin 18012 in YC ...which had a full sized (DOUBLE) couch.... My daughter 5'2 and 5' grandchild slept comfortably on the pullout. Look at couch size designator... There are 2 different size couches
  24. We received an upgrade bid offer notice 5 days before cruise. We did bid... Did not receive reply until day of cruise.... Got denied email while I was taking transportation to ship!! In fairness I already new bid would not be accepted since I heard from fellow passengers who had booked the room(s) offered.... So I was just waiting to be formally denied... Lol
