  3. MSC Seaside
Got of the Seaside after doing back to back. The boarding process was so quick couldn't believe it once inside the ship we had to wait for our rooms to be ready. So in that time we filled in forms for the slides got a MSC bands and had a drink. We had an inside room for a family of 4 Fanstastica 14129 it would have to be the smallest room we have ever had but we made do and lucky we had packing cubes for our clothing. Buffett was the best we have ever had the dining was a bit bland. Never had a problem getting a drink anywhere and our ship full to the MAX. Only problem I had their wasn't enough shade outside and been fair I struggled to find a chair people putting towels down the night before to take those chairs. We did all our shore tours through the ship really enjoyed all of them did feel a bit ripped of by the stingray tour as there was 2 stingrays and we were rushed. My teen kids loved the teen club they had a lot of fun and met some great kids But overall we had a lovely trip but if we went again would do YC

Wonderful cruise on the Seaside

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Dune Buggy
    had a great day this is a fantastic tour to do kids really enjoyed it the stop was at the beach to snorkel were a bit disappointed about the snorking but we have snorkelled in the Pacific ocean where there is a lot of fish and coral to see wasn't much there and they do waste to much time explain how to snorkel. But still nice to have a swim. The rest of the day was great driving around the island

  • Stingray Swim
    Went to turtle farm and visited Hell and a beach stop the trip to the boat to head out to stingray city was great very informative but a bit disappointed about the stingrays it was very quick and only 2 stingrays there. Then had to pay $50 for our 2 second hold of the stingray then the tour guides all wanted tips

  • Blue Lagoon Island Beach
    We went here twice 1st time we just walked around went to the pirate museum, straw market and the queenschair and fort.
    The 2nd time we went to Blue Lagoon bit dis appointed had to pay again for the kids to go on the water floats should be included in the price as these tour are not very cheap. But the water was lovely and had a great day
