1st time on MSC how gay friendly?

Recommended Posts

We are booked on the MSC Armonia Aril 29,2019. Can anyone give us some insight on service and how gay friendly the staff might be? Thanks for your help. Tom

all is great - have sailed now 6 times on MSC and have 3 more cruises booked with them - never an issue - if a particular staff member is not gay, they are very gay friendly - even the captain was very entertaining....dont worry at all, you will have a great time for sure....

If you can take ANY other cruise line. I recommend that you do. MSC in my opinion is pretty terrible.

i have to disagree with you - it is now our fvourite cruise line - cruised 5/6 time already and have 3 more booked - however, we book the YC as it the best value at sea - if you have a little european heritage in you, you will love MSC, but if you are looking at meals under 45minutes, then perhaps not for you - again, but my opinion...\

 

may i ask what u disliked about MSC???

We've never had any issue with MSC at all having cruised 4 times previously with them and 5 times with NCL. MSC is great value, great fun and much better mix of different nationalities. Two cruises on Armonia booked for August 2019 and looking forward to them greatly.

MSC does have it's draw backs but it sure is cheap and has great ships.. We are booked on our 4th cruise on MSC over Christmas this year..
Personally..I have avoided NCL since a transatlantic on the Epic that I considered a ship you could not pay me to book again.

To each his own I guess.

Hi all!!  We are avid cruisers 39 for my partner and 38 for me... We did one NCL - never again - and though we have not been on MSC we have heard from friends and seen the overall poor reviews of MSC. I personally would not go on it because it is cheap.  We heard the ships are beautiful, but MSC generally caters to a European crowd and food is fair to poor at best.

 

Our favorites for the mid-priced cruise lines are Celebrity and Princess. That is as good as it gets before you take the next step to an Azamara or Oceania... There are some great deals around.  I just snagged a 10 Day on Celebrity to the S. Caribbean for $889PP during Spring Break.

 

Good Luck and Happy Cruising!!! :classic_biggrin:

I just got off the seaview on Saturday and I was impressed.  I still wouldn’t take them again.  Been on MANY cruises and I would much rather have celebrity and royal.   But the ship is amazing.  The shows were great and the food was okay.

You get what you pay for.  MSC doesn't bill themselves as a premium line - nor do they charge premium prices. I booked a transatlantic on MSC Divina, 21 days, for $1100 all-in, solo. Paid for an inside, free upgrade to a balcony +$100 OBC. 

 

It's great to have choices.
