Onboard Meraviglia Canada/NE, any questions?

Recommended Posts

Are there any public locations aft by the staircases where you can hang out and watch the back of the ship?  I understand that there is the top public deck and the back of the buffet is sort of open, but can you hang out in the back on other (cabin?) decks?

I am going to get the unlimited wifi package. Weirdly your not allowed to stream Netflix etc thru the web but can use YT. All apps are ok does this include the Netflix app 🤣.

 

I stream tons of YT videos thru the app.

 

How is the DL speed. Any noticeable buffering?

I started this thread to answer any questions on Meraviglia while I am onboard.  I didn’t mean for it to turn into a place for a bunch of complaints about the ship.  We are having a great time and have no major issues!
 

Tonight’s theme is Tropical party for those interested.  Here is tonight’s dinner menu for those interested in MDR menus

 

 

 

 

Did you wear anything particular for the tropical party? What was the typical dress code for this?

 

TIA

Excellent!  Thanks so much again for keeping us up to date on the evening party themes!

 

I have another quick question for you.  Did MSC provide you with any information on what the various evening theme parties were going to be when you received your boarding passes?  Another source said that MSC sends out that information along with the cruise documents.  As far as I can remember from my two past cruises with MSC we did not receive any such information ahead of time.

Sometimes during the day the Carousel lounge will be open.  This is where Cirque de Soliel has their shows in the evenings.  You will have to go through the casino to see if the doors are open.  If so, this is a great place to hang out.  Huge windows across the back and lots of tables and chairs.  There was no bar service, but there is a bar in the casino just a few steps away.  Very few people there so nice and quiet and great view of the wake.  We didn't discover this until our last day, so I don't know how often it is open.

Someone else responded with a possible inside location.  I have not seen any outdoor locations at the back of the ship except the buffet tables and the upper deck, nothing low.

I personally did not get any information ahead of time regarding themes, other than on these boards, nothing from MSC.

Hi the internet is pretty slow at sea.  It’s fine for emails and some web sites but videos it’s not that great.  The YT app does work but it’s slow and buffers a lot.  I am guessing it also depends how many people are using the WiFi at that time.

I have to admit we did not attend the parties, not much into the dance parties.  I am sharing the info for everyone else.  I don’t think too many people dress up because they don’t know ahead of time except the white party which there were many dressed up.  Now that the themes are being talked about more, maybe soon more people will know and bring clothes to dress up.

      Last night was “60s, 70s, 80s” night.  Tonight is elegant night number 3.  Here is the menu from MDR last night:

Thank you @smile145 and @CruisinMaterial for the detailed info and the tips.

 

Hope you are enjoying your cruise, the weather is nice and warm down here in Florida, so you will have some sunny times to enjoy soon! 🌞  How was the Boston stop?


Boston was very nice!  We are getting off in NY tomorrow but I wish we were going to FL to see some nice weather.

Glad you enjoyed my home city! Sorry I won't be able to meet you but you've posted immensely helpful information... including the theme parties! I've changed some wardrobe attire to match some of the themes you've mentioned. I can't wait for the theme parties! Reminds me of some of the other cruises I've taken (charters) where they're quite theme-centric!

 

Safe onward journey to you and thanks again for all your menu and theme posts!
