Checking the mail after our fabulous Grazie Princess cruise, I was very surprised to find an offer from Mohegan Sun to pick up a comped cruise on MSC. I have sailed most of the mainstream cruise lines, but I know next to nothing about MSC. Since I plan to pick up the certificate, I better get busy learning what I can

Anyone else receive this offer, or have any advice or comments?

Yes, I am very pleased it includes port fees & taxes. I have already done the status match and will have some nice perks from that to go along with the free drinks in the casino from this offer.

I am also impressed wth the way they spelled out all the upgrades. I'll keep on reading the forum, reviews and the website to educate myself about all the MSC differences, though, as there seem to be many.

We are looking at Feb or March and might actually try the Med for the first time. I'm glad we have until October to make a decision

My husband and I are from Connecticut and we received the voucher from Mohegan Sun for a free cruise on MSC. We have never sailed on the MCS line. We are booked on the new ship Seaside. We are booked for March 3, 2018. Can’t wait to see the new ship.

I also ended up booking the Seaside, but for 3/17. There is a ton of information coming in about the ship, but not much about the casino. Hopefully, we will know more by March!

We sailed on MSC Meraviglia this past fall on the Mediterranean. If you can, see if Yacht Club cabins are available. I have been on 36 cruises with Carnival & Princess. MSC impressed the hell out of us.

I have heard negative opinions about MSC. Please elaborate on what impressed you. I know they honor memberships from casinos and I could be considered in the top tier which grants you special treatment.

Well, we were in Yacht Club, the ship-within-a-ship. An interior in YC cost what a regular balcony went for. But all amenities including butler, private pool and dining areas and all liquor were included. The food was very good—the service top-notch. I can’t really speak to the non-YC experience. But the Cirque shows and production shows were fine. A small but smoky casino. If you like to dance and party, the interior promenade was rocking every night.
