Virtuosa maiden voyage

The Masters of the Sea menu is very similar to the menu on the Meraviglia Pub, it was great place for a quiet lunch, enjoyed the Fish’nChips a couple times, didn’t have to purchase food, could simply enjoy a beverage if you wanted to.

Seems to be the deal is drinks only if they are not busy. As got allergies nor seen specific menu but they seems to say “If you have any allergy or sensitivity to specific foods, please notify our staff before ordering.”

Thank you. I'm surprised that nothing on the main menus or any of the dining places is marked to be gluten free, which I'm guessing must mean there are specific menus floating about. Guess we'll find out when we board on the 28th!

Can we nominate Stu for some sort of of award? This info and all the menus are superb! Thank you so much!

Yes, a medal for Stu!

 

I was wondering if they provide disposable masks, or whether we should bring our own supply? Also, do you have any tips on where the premium drinks package can be used, which bars etc? 
 

Hope you’re enjoying a bit of well deserved sunshine now!

Thank you for posting all the menus, I’m getting excited for my holiday. Are the coffees in the above cafe included with the premium drinks package?

im hoping so 😊

Unfortunately not. However most bars make great proper coffee included on the package.

They give you a couple of masks in the cabin. So bring your own. Packages work in all bars but in Champagne and Starship there are large limitations.

Stu, quick question.
What do they do on things like the white party, I'm sure it's not a crowded dance floor, how does it work?

Any night life for that matter, how does it work now?

First off, many thanks for all the Info & menus, you're going above & beyond.

What are the limitations in the Champagne bar re plus package?

Mobile data and roaming off from day 1 anyway. 

 

Not a major inconvenience but just another "msc thing" lol

 

Is QR reader switched on in camera settings?

Hi, can you please check if they are showing formula 1 racing on any TV channels? Thank you

Oooh great question - we’re onboard in October and we were hoping we could watch the GP in the Sports Bar - does anyone know if its possible to book a booth with a TV? I appreciate it’s a bit random but any advice gratefully appreciated x

White night is tomorrow so the last night - starts 10.30pm so wont be hardly anyone there. 

 

In fact, they have double shows tomorrow for comedian (4pm and 11.30pm) theatre (7.30pm and 9.30pm) and soul sisters (later show 10.30pm). 

 

Those later shows will be dead. 

 

The comedian is the same show for both times so no 18+ performance. 

 

As I said before, having the comedian and soul sisters perform 3 shows (6 performances) on a 4N cruise is far too much. 

 

Appreciate the need to cut costs and cover covid issues but if there's one thing thats let this cruise down then its that. 

 

The die hard MSC fans will be pleased to know the 35 minute main theatre shows are still as weird as usual and have zero storyline in any of them lol

 

Still some great performers in each though - the latin dancers and lead male voculists are stunning.

Thanks for that, for me MSC is always let down by the theatre shows and that is one important area for me.

It will be interesting how they handle the disco when the ship is 75-80% full. I can't imagine a full dance floor right now

Do you have to wear masks whilst up and dancing? This whole mask thing is new to me.

Are there any big screens anywhere that they might show any of the Euro 2020 games? We’re on board for England v Scotland which is gonna be a pretty popular sea day with just a British cruise crowd!

Under current rules there is little dancing - socially distanced and in masks.  Last night in the Carousel Lounge when Soul Sisters were on a family started dancing without masks - staff made them sit and put on masks, passengers near them moved away.  You can only remove mask when drinking or eating. May change of restrictions are further eased on 21 June.

Last night they showed Eurovision in the TV Studio Bar and on the big pool screen. So if they can get broadcast rights they may.

 Not seen any but they are having ongoing TV issues. The programmes keep dropping out every 30 seconds or so - sounds very intermittent and error message.
