If Arthur is not on your sailing, request Alessandra. She has been absolutely magnificent. All of her recommendations have been spot on, for food and wine. She brings extra plates of food out too. It has been incredible.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have read on here that she is also great. Have also read that William is alsoa rock star.

We had Anastasia the week of March 3rd, and she was excellent, as were her assistants. Amazed at her fluency in Italian, French, Spanish, and English!

Sorry! Fat fingers on a small keyboard! I meant our servers was Allesandra! She is on the starboard side and has quite a few two-tops with great views.

I was thinking about it then made reservation for Oceanview. After your review, I called my agent and ask to move back to YC Deluxe. Thanks for great review.

I know it's an older thread but I just read it today and I'd like to add my thanks to eroller for his review. As someone who has only ever cruised on Princess, I found this review incredibly informative and has me looking forward to my first MSC cruise in November of 2019. Can't wait to experience the YC environment for myself.

Also have to say thanks for your review and the amazing photos! I am sailing on her sister ship the MSC Seaview in 44 Days, and it was so nice to see the photos and get an excellent idea of what to expect. This is my first MSC cruise and I had booked an interior cabin on deck 10, but after reading so much on this site about MSC I jumped and switched to an accessible Yacht Club cabin. Can not wait to sail her.

Great review and great photos!!!!!
Does the pool area for Seaside Yacht club have any loungers in an area with shade? We sailed Yacht Club on the Divina, and all chairs were in the sun. We noted this on our comment sheet at the end of our cruise a couple years ago, hoping they would consider this during Seaside's construction.

I seem to recall reading that the Aurea private area (which YC people can also access) has some shade. It's close by.

I am so glad I found this review. Great job as always Ernie. Have not yet looked at all the pics. Glad you had a great time and found your experience positive. I was going to book Seaside but got cold feet from some of the reviews.
