After cruising several times on the same brand ship we decided to venture out and try a new brand. We found MSC and saw where they do loyalty match so we started researching them. We decided on the Seaside out of Miami and booked our cruise. The day we embarked we noticed a much quicker process and loved it. Their customer service center was huge and quick. Once on board the hype was all true...this ship was gorgeous. I was definitely not disappointed. I quickly realized there wasn’t a hole punched in my room card and thought how will I wear this on my lanyard? To my great surprise they offered wristbands to wear that did all the functions of your room card. My favorite part was no one hardly wore their cards around their neck to prove status or feel privileged in some way. I was worried about the food since I personally am a picky eater, but I found plenty to eat and was never hungry. The ship was always clean and the staff was friendly. We had the privilege of meeting the captain and I must say he was amazing. He had a great personality and humor. We saw him walking on the ship one day with another officer so we didn’t even try to bother him and he stopped and spoke to us like we were family. Now the shows. I loved everyone of the shows on this ship and can honestly say all of the performers were great and you could see how they got their job. It really made the other brands shows look like amateur hour. I am so glad we tried this ship and have booked another cruise on MSC on the Magnifica. We had another cruise booked on the other brand ship and have decided to loose the deposit and cruise with MSC. Read Less

Pros: Crew members - always friendly and helpful. Our room steward, Christian, went beyond normal. Some crew members gave us free drinks or moved us to the front of the line without us requesting the favors. Cleanliness of ship (with the exception of plates in the hallway for over a day) Cabin Entertainment (except as noted below) We met some very nice people (expecially at the Meet & Greet) Cruise Critic Meet & Greet was our first and an unexpected joy Balcony experience Things not outstanding: Food (both MDR and buffet) 360 degree tour of St. Maarten (about half of it was disappointing) Cons: Does not really cater to the American market Embarkation was my worst ever Disembarkation (self-disembarkation) was my worst ever Comedy improv show stunk; almost just left Some overseas passengers think nothing of cutting in front of you Some overseas passengers think nothing of bumping you around Read Less

This was my fourth time on the Seaside . Each time has been a great experience. I’ve already booked it for February. Let me be clear about the passengers before going on about the cruise . The makeup is mostly foreign with I’d say only about 30% American. The environment of the ship is culturally different . Manners and politeness are often missing . Cabin : The size more than adequate though closet space is limited and not enough drawers. The way to get around this is to bring magnetic hooks to place on walls ( hang hats, bags, bathing suits etc ). Bring a velcro hanging shoe bag for the closet for shoes or clothing. Food : enough choices to find something you like . There’s always a chicken, steak or fish option if you don’t like the menu of the day. I found Tiramisu to die for one day on the menu. My husband had two shrimp cocktail every day . Specialty restaurant: Butchers Cut has filet mignon you can cut with a fork it’s so soft and rack of lamb prepared exactly like I like it. Entertainment: The cruise Director Eric is top notch. Humorous, energetic and involved. Shows : the best I’ve ever screen on any cruise . We normally sit in the rear in case we don’t enjoy the show . On this ship we get to the show as early as possible to get front row seats . Staff everywhere are helpful and engaging even when English is not their first language . With that said go with an open mind and book it. It’s well worth it. Read Less
