Live from the Seaside April 7, 2018

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone. This is my first time on the Seaside, although I've been on Divina a few times.

I booked this cruise back in January 2016 when the ship was still just a gleam in the designer's eye.

I'm traveling solo this time, which I've done before. When I booked it, this cruise was supposed to go to MSC's new private island, which, unfortunately , is still under construction.

I booked an inside cabin, Bella experience, with a complimentary all inclusive drink package. I'm about six drinks in, so, time to start posting! ;p

I have a new laptop, which I really don't know how to use, a new phone, which I really don't know how to use and if you've been in the photo or test forums the last two days, you may have seen me struggling to post photos.

I just recently found out all my photos have disappeared from my previous reviews, which may be a blessing if some of you saw my Cozumel Bar Hop photos from my Rhapsody cruise. ;) I still don't know how I got them past Bob the censor. :halo:

So, bear with me as I try to do this review. If I stop posting, know that it's not from lack of trying, although it may be from a surplus of tequila. :')

I flew out of Lynchburg, VA Friday and I decided to just have a casual, relaxing cruise this time. I actually managed to fit all my belongings in just a carry on bag and a personal item.

My first stop was Charlotte, NC where I found a photo of myself returning to my cabin after a hard day of [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=monospace]d̶[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#1D2129][FONT=Helvetica]d̶r̶i̶n̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ cruising.[/FONT][/COLOR]

Speaking of questionable decisions, the guy next to me in Charlotte was eating airport sushi. I had to surreptitiously take this picture.

I had two hours to kill there, luckily for me, this sweetheart came along.

His name is Roscoe. Who's a good boy?

This dog was also there, nattily attired in her patriotic dress.

Charlotte tried to lure me into eating NC gelato. Why would I do that, when I was going on MSC, home to the finest gelato around? Do I look like someone who would eat airport sushi?

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-pVKrBXq/0/15dde180/M/IMG_0571-M.jpg[/IMG]

Charlotte also has bars right at the gates! Wait, what?

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-b9XjhCM/0/a275da97/M/IMG_0573-M.jpg[/IMG]

I guess that's so the pilots can get one last drink before they board. :o

I arrived at Miami about 4:30pm and hopped a quick Uber (my phone worked, yay) ride to my Airbnb.

My Airbnb was a pool house in the heart of Little Havana.

That's my front door.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-k5KSncp/0/485e32eb/M/IMG_0586-M.jpg[/IMG]

And, this is my side door.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-swPHwHT/0/8cdc9b96/M/IMG_0583-M.jpg[/IMG]

It was nice inside.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-D2ZCK6D/0/898cc86c/M/IMG_0579-M.jpg[/IMG]

It had a little kitchenette, in case I wanted to cook. I don't cook at home, why would I cook on vacation?

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-JkmmrTd/0/926b4187/M/IMG_0578-M.jpg[/IMG]

Unmentionable, so I won't.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-qR26CqB/0/f9c88ab0/M/IMG_0580-M.jpg[/IMG]

It had a nice sitting area, bar and grill.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-R5NP52r/0/fe462c49/M/IMG_0581-M.jpg[/IMG]

I assumed it would come with a cabana boy, but , it didn't. I'll be writing Airbnb a strongly worded letter upon my return.

I was starving and desperate for black beans and rice, so, I soon headed out for some Cuban food.

Calle Ocho!

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-G4WCBKq/0/7ab47274/M/IMG_0593-M.jpg[/IMG]

This poor guy was just looking for some good beer.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-GmgsL76/0/b5acf96d/M/IMG_0594-M.jpg[/IMG]

Oh, well, there you go.

My next goal was to find some Cuban men playing Dominoes.

This guy said he knew the way.

Wait, women are allowed to watch, right?

This guy let me know I was welcome.

You can see they take it very seriously.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-tSvkJTq/0/df877c0d/M/IMG_0603-M.jpg[/IMG]

Famished, now, I went to El Pub for an early dinner.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-ZSKrDLz/0/3a1c1a0b/M/IMG_0609-M.jpg[/IMG]

I had a nice piece of grouper, although I could have done without the onions.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-ndWFhWB/0/58bb5e74/M/IMG_0612-M.jpg[/IMG]

And, what I was really after, black beans and rice. Some fries rounded out the plate.

I forgot, I also had a nice Mojito at El Pub.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-KxPLR7B/0/c9bc2635/M/IMG_0614-M.jpg[/IMG]


I got lost walking home and got a little perturbed at myself, so, I took a little swim in the pool, then off to bed.

In the morning, I still hadn't figured out how to post photos and realized my check in time was 3:30, so, I texted my host to see if I could stay late. He said that was fine.

Finally, around 1, I called for an Uber to the port. He didn't speak English and I don't know much Spanish, but, we got along okay. I told him we needed to go to Terminal F.

West? he asked, F, I said. S? he asked, F, I said. F like in Fun. Blank stare. F like in Friday. Blank stare, A,B,C,D,E F!! I said. Blank stare. F like in Francisco. Oh, Francisco, si, si. :D

Working as a team, we made it!

From stepping out of the car, walking to Terminal entrance, through security and check in took all of ten minutes. I do get priority embarkation because I'm a Black Member, so, remember if you have status on other lines, MSC does a Loyalty Match. You don't get the same benefits as your other line gives you, but, you do get some benefits.

Another important difference is you don't give them your credit card at check in. You go to a self serve kiosk anytime in the first 48 hours to set up your credit card. I learned this the hard way when I got bonged trying to leave the Divina after my first cruise. :loudcry:

So, check in was fast then things bogged down actually getting on the ship. Which gave me time to take more pictures!

First glimpse.

The outside seating at the buffet covers the life boats.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-38GPZjH/0/5e947e43/M/i-38GPZjH-M.jpg[/IMG]

This boom will be used to lower me off the ship after all the pizza I will consume.

Frozen shrimp, keep frozen at 0 degrees or below. Just sitting on the dock. In Miami. :o I think I got Norovirus just looking at it.

Since I had eaten early last night and had no breakfast, I headed immediately to the buffet. I was so hungry, I forgot to take pictures!

And, there is zero chance of me drinking these. :evilsmile:

These are more my style, I had two of the Sunset Beaches.

And, two of the Miami Vices.

Frozen Toblerone? Put a pin in that for later.


Promptly at 2pm, the cabins were ready.

Completing our tour, here is the drawer space in the closet.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-NHfHt5g/0/b58e8848/M/i-NHfHt5g-M.jpg[/IMG]

And, the hanging space.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-dJHzkL4/0/1309d3c7/M/i-dJHzkL4-M.jpg[/IMG]

Last piece of housekeeping, one nice thing about MSC is they have real hangers, not those ones that don't come off the rack and you have to wiggle the little stick to get them in. You know what I'm talking about! :mad:

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-4J5svbQ/0/d298d953/M/i-4J5svbQ-M.jpg[/IMG]

When I got my cruise card, there was no dining room information on it, other than it said late seating, so, I had to go see the maitre d.

Even though I booked it over 2 years ago, he couldn't find me a table, said I could eat at 5:30. :mad:

He said everybody is in family groups. I said, I don't mind that, I'll make friends with the family. He didn't like the sound of that.

He said I can put you at a table for two with an elderly man from Barcelona. I didn't like the sound of that, what if we couldn't communicate, didn't get along? I wondered if his name was Francisco. :')

He asked the other maitre d if he had any space. He said yeah, I can get you in at 7:30 and put me at a table. I asked my guy how many were at that table and he said nine, now.

Now, you know there are no tables for nine. He squeezed me in at a table for eight. I'm not skinny, so, I don't want to be squished at an overcrowded table. That would make me feel awkward and uncomfortable.

I didn't know what else to say, so, I thanked them and left.

I decided I would probably go to the dining room and walk by the table, check it out. Maybe if there were kids there, there would be more room. But, also there'd be kids. :eek:

So, I went for a walkabout of the ship.

How many drinks is that?

This guy had a Boston shirt on, which is usually my cue to go up and start a conversation, but, I don't know, he doesn't look Bostony to me, he's giving off a French vibe to me, for some reason.

The water slide goes out over the side of the ship.

I was still tormented about the dining room and my luggage still hadn't arrived, so, I decided to go to the buffet for some pizza. They have THE BEST PIZZA!!!

This is my kind of buffet.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-tggZ7jp/0/681ec03c/M/i-tggZ7jp-M.jpg[/IMG]

Sweet Fancy Moses, that is some good pizza. And, a chilled wine glass, to boot.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-4GH4VMh/0/69e89ba7/M/i-4GH4VMh-M.jpg[/IMG]

Of course, once I started eating, that settled it and I knew I wasn't going to the dining room, at least this night.

[IMG]https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-k9gKJV4/0/af8d8c2a/M/i-k9gKJV4-M.jpg[/IMG]

I got some grouper, pasta, potatoes and on my way out, I spotted the paella. I remembered it from the Divina and I loved it and they only had it the first day! I'll let you know if this is the case on Seaside, as well.

More wine and a bottle of water for the cabin, I'm really flexing that drink package.

Maureen, I hope you have a great cruise. I was on the Seaside the end of January and didn't really care for it because of the many problems we encountered. I know they have corrected many of those so I will give MSC a second chance in the future. Enjoy!!!!!!

Are you going on the President's cruise on the Harmony in September?

So i saw you posted something on another thread the other day and saw your timeline as 2 days before embarking for Seaside. Wondered if you would do a report.

Signed on this morning and yay you are doing a live review. They always make me laugh out loud. So entertaining and whet my appetite even more for our Seaside cruise next year.

Question: In your air b and b the pic of the 3 beds (a queen and a single?) was that it or was there another bedroom? Looked fabulous. Just right for a before cruise stay.

Have a fantastic time and hammer that drink package;p. :wine-glass::cocktail::tropical-drink::beer-mug:Btw where is Hello Kitty did she accompany you this trip?

I am very interested in your review, and I am enjoying it so far. I will be on the Seaview in July and have been waiting for Seaside reviews, but many are either extremely positive or extremely negative, or they are are from people in the ship's nicest staterooms and yacht club guests. I'll be in an inside on the Seaview, so I'm excited for your approach. Thanks for taking time out of your holiday to do this!

Are you going on the President's cruise on the Harmony in September?

Nat[/quote]

Hi Nat, how have you been? I'm glad to see you're still cruising. I wasn't planning to, I was just on Harmony. I usually cruise for my birthday In Sept, though...

[quote name='ImANewfie']Please please as part of your tour, can you post the room service menu... every menu for everything can be found online, except room service. Bella or Fantastica would be fine... and thank you if you can :)[/quote]

Will do, it's in 6 different languages, I'll post English unless you prefer otherwise. I won't post the Romantic Moments packages, although they're on the menu. That's things like champagne, rose petals, chocolate covered strawberries, etc. I'll just post the food and the pizza. You know, the good stuff! ;)

[quote name='A&L_Ont']That pizza looks so much better than RC’s. I’m here till they kick you off.[/quote]

OMG, It's fabulous. The margherita is the best. I'm a pepperoni lover (:evilsmile:) but I only eat the margherita on MSC. Don't worry, you'll see more, I've decided to just do the buffet for dinner. Somebody fortify that boom, it's taking on a heavy load! :')


I looked for your summer house, the one with the Flowrider, but, I didn't see it...

[quote name='Motegi']That’s for the wonderful play by play review! It’s quite enthralling.

We’re sailing on the Seaside in September and will be using this review as a step by step guide![/quote]

Thank you for saying that, I was afraid people would be saying, I thought this was a cruise review? I like to post everything, so, people can get to know me, then they can see what I like and if they think they would like similar things, you know?

[quote name='georgemoe']Great review. Following! How many hangers are provided in the closets? Thank you.[/quote]

I have 7 of the regular shirt hangers and 4 of the shirt hangers with the clips for pants, skirts. I had to double up some of my pants, shorts. When I bring my big suitcase, I bring one of those 4 tiered clipping hangers, do you know what I mean? A few of my non cotton shirts, I just have sitting on a drawer. I love those for traveling, you can just wad them up in a ball and they still look good.

Question: In your air b and b the pic of the 3 beds (a queen and a single?) was that it or was there another bedroom? Btw where is Hello Kitty did she accompany you this trip?[/quote]

That was it, a queen and a daybed. Sometimes, the host can provide an air mattress or cot if you need that. I can't remember if this one could or not, since it was just me. I'm big, I'm not that big! :loudcry: I almost brought Pirate Kitty, but, I figured the MSC crowd, being more European and sophisticated, wouldn't abide by that foolishness. I wanted to, though...:(
