Thank you @nikkiw60!

 

Did you get a chance to enjoy the tables with a view at the back of the buffet yet?

Yes it’s nice outside in that area and not busy!

Do the buffet bars have cappuccino or specialty coffee/chocolate drinks available for breakfast? Or is this only available in the liqour bars elsewhere?

I was on the Oct 18 cruise, and I ordered cappuccino a few times from the table attendants in the buffet at breakfast using my easy beverage package.

Breakfast buffet!

For anyone who likes flavoured coffee they have 3 flavoured creamers also if you want an omelette the station at the back is the quietest.

And for toast it is pre made so toasted properly unlike the toasters you need to put the bread through 3 times but it’s not warm.

Finally they have roasted ham with is rather nice on the carving stations.

We were on the Oct 8th sailing to Canada.  The first morning we asked for half and half for our coffee.  There was absolutely no half and half on the ship.  We bought some in our first port and chalked it up to Europeans not using it.  Can you let me know if it is available now as we are sailing her again in Feb.

I can’t see any only hot and cold milk on the coffee stations and these with the cereals.

We had our Aurea inclusive massages earlier, we were not given a choice and had the Bali massage, this is now 50 minutes only. It was very good but the end of massage upset was a prescription for a hot stone massage for the special price of $133... I pay less than $40 for this at home! Matt was also prescribed this same one..

Also we pre- booked hair salon appointments before boarding for what I thought was a good price of £24 each ($30 ish) today in spa for men $15 and I think it was $24 for women.

We were on the 10/18-10/28 sailing and our invitations were all delivered timely.  It may have something to do with your steward (or whoever is responsible for delivering invitations).

The hairdresser (Georgi? from Serbia I think) is one of the best around! I had a great cut, colour & finish-better than I get at home

Night before last we had dinner in the buffet word got around they had fried shrimp... this was good but the calamari was as hard as rock!
Also there was a Latin party at the Horizon pool bar for sail away, this was the best sail away we have we have ever experienced on MSC.

Something from the buffet at lunch yesterday! 
think the shrimp and calamari could be from the night before obviously not recycled as was cooked differently!
The octopus stifado was delicious, I had 2 lots!

We received 2 chocolate ships over a week ago plus the other perks but we still haven’t received our gift! Other passengers have and it is a baseball cap!

Thank you for the detailed information. Cruising Meraviglia on Nov.17th, I’ve been reviewing your daily posts to determine MSC theme nights. So far I’ve just noticed White night, Latin and Gatsby. Did I miss anything?
