We are a family of six ages 60, 61, 39, 36,9 & 6 staying in 2 cabins in deck 13. We are anxious to meet some fellow cruisers and the Capt and crew.
No it doesn’t automatically sign you up for the CC meet&greet. Click on the “more” link above this thread and click on the meet & mingle. Follow links to find your date, ship and proceed from there.
They send an email and you will get the invitation in your cabin

Hello I couldn't say for certain but think when we sailed with another cruise line we had to sign up separately for the meet and mingle . We are sailing for our 1st cruise on MSC Fantasia 10th April but they don't do meet and mingle on this ship it's a shame they don't as a great introduction to other cruisers

Hi there. Just returned from cruise on MSC seaside and attended the cruise critic meet and mingle. It was well attended and well organised by Msc. Captain Marco Massa and Cruise director Stephen Cloete were in attendance along with some senior officers. Really good atmosphere and opportunity to meet other cruise critics. Hopefully this will be extended to other Msc ships.

We are currently onboard Magnifica and there is a notice in today's planner for all Cruise Critic members that there will be a meet and mingle on Friday morning at 11 am.

This is the first I've heard about meet and mingles on this ship so maybe they are trying it out.

Thank you MSC.

Hello friends - I'm wondering if anyone who's done the Seaside M&M remembers which day of the cruise it happened on?

Thanks!

This will be the third on Divinia The previous two were upgrades to the Yacht Club for next to nothing. We had a great butler, private pool area with a small buffet, private small dining room compared to the normal vessel sizeareas, private area where the Captain had coffee in the AM and a meet and greet and small food area and private bar with a fantastic view off the bow of the vessel, and, and. and. Can't say enough. HAL was nice but not like this.

July 21, 2018? Cruise Critic cuts off dates prior to the actual sailing date, so that they can forward the list to MSC. This enables MSC to make proper arrangements for those who are registered.
