Got Questions About MSC Meraviglia?

Recommended Posts

Hi Beamafar

I have completed web check in (or I thought I had) the web site says I have and can request my tickets.

I have clicked the button but now what? I was expecting the site to allow me to print off my tickets straight away or send them via email, but as yet nothing.

Also under my booking when I got to e tickets one of the sections states that I have not provided all mandatory passenger info. The self ticketing button is not illuminated, am I doing something wrong.:confused:

Hi Beamafar

I've only booked direct with MSC once and that was on our June cruise. I did the web check-in but still had to wait 'til we were 21 days out before they issued the tickets via email. That's with the UK office. We have a booking through a TA for a cruise in 3 weeks time. I did the online check-in at the time that the extra bonus points were announced. It says :

 

"Thank you for completing the web check-in. Please get in touch with your travel agent in order to get your e-tickets".

 

 

I never expect to receive tickets from a TA 'til 14 days before sailing so I have another week to wait before I should have them.

 

There seems to be a lot of problems on the MSC website. I tried on several occasions before to edit incorrect personal details before finally succeeding.



 

 

If you're concerned, you should contact them directly, either by email or phone and explain your situation.

What I was told was that the extra 100 points will be added after we cruise.

I didn't take our pics beforehand so can't answer, sorry.

 

Hi Sorry to ask this question but we have never sailed msc before. When I have updated our info to do web check in is this enough for the extra 100 points, as it is saying on the document update your info for extra 100 points, have i done enough by filling in our web check in?

Also I have taken the web picture, will they take it again if they are not happy with it?

Thank you.

I was told the same thing when I inquired about the extra 100 points for updating our info

Pete

 

The reason why I enquired, Pete, was because they added the extra 100 bonus points to DH's account immediately after I did the online check-in but not mine. How I know this is because I had only recently checked our points tally to ensure that the totals were correct after our June cruise. I checked back in after doing the online check-in and he had 100 points more!

 

This is what it says on the website:

 

BONUS POINTS: Starting from 28 July 2017, in addition to the points you earn for your cruise, you can also collect BONUS POINTS!

You will be rewarded with 100 BONUS POINTS if you join the MSC Voyagers Club before the cruise.

Existing MSC Voyagers Club Members, who have booked an upcoming cruise with MSC, who update or confirm their contact details before the cruise in the MSC Voyagers Club Area or through the Web Check-in form will be rewarded with 100 BONUS POINTS. Bonus point is not retroactive

 

No mention of when the points will be awarded.

According to the sign posted on board which I took

 

Thank you so much for that! I can't find anywhere on the " enhance your cruise" portion of the MSC website where I can add an unlimited drinks package. I only see beer or soda Etc. I guess we'll have to just wait till we get on board to take care of it

Either contact MSC (if you booked directly) or your TA and have them add the package to your booking to avoid paying the 15% service charge which is added when you book onboard.

MSC Meraviglia disembarkation process in Barcelona?

Booked flight out of barcelona at 12 noon, just found out meraviglia docked 9am, anyone know what time we can get off the ship, wondering if we are first one off and should make it to airport by 10am. Taxi ride is about 20 to 30 minutes from cruise port to airport. Bit worry if there is any delay in disembarkation. Anyone recently disembarked at Barcelona?

Hey Guys,

 

We did a tour of the Yacht Club as the first part of our ship tour. We will be posing other areas of the ship in the coming weeks.

Is there a drink package available to buy on the Meraviglia and can you bring your own wine aboard?

Has anyone recently taken advantage of one of the Laundry packages? Have been thinking about this since they are pretty affordable. Do they launder all clothes items? Feel odd about having someone clean our panties. LOL

there are no laundry or ironing facilities for passengers to use other than the ship's laundry. they do have laundry packages available at a reasonable cost

It seems like one of those packages won't go very far. 20 items is only a few days' worth of socks and underwear...

so true. Was looking at the 40 items, and only worrying about pants and shirts really. :-) Just wanted feedback from anyone who had paid for this service.

I have another one: how much will the entrance fee be for the Cirque shows for those not interested in buying the inclusive cocktails or dinner packages?

 

Sent from my SM-G935F using Forums mobile app

The cost of the show is $16 per person but you must buy dinner or drinks as I understand it

Hi, we just booked room 13119 next to the Panoramic elevator. Does the elevator interfere with your balcony view? Can the people in the elevator see onto your balcony as they ride up and down? Thinking to maybe switch to cabin 13183. Any thoughts?

Does the Meraviglia sail through, or close to, the Lofoten Islands on its way to Tronso? Or does it steam past, so far west that we would miss any view of them entirely? The Lofoten Islands present spectacular photo opportunities and is too much of a shame to miss them both there and back. The itinerary maps on the MSC website do not offer a "larger view" option and aren't as specific as say Google maps, hence the need to ask.

Hello

I am just wondering if anyone can advise on what beers are covered under the bar and restaurant unlimited drink package.

From what I can find online it seems that Heineken is the only bottled beer covered, but I am interested in knowing what draught beers are included

Thanks

Hi all,

 

Cruise Critic will be onboard MSC Meraviglia May 31 to June 4, for a sneak peek of the new ship -- which will kick off with cruises in Europe before coming to Miami 2019.

 

If there are any questions you have, or specific areas you'd like to see, you can start submitting requests now, and we'll do our best to honor them once we're on the ship. :)

 

We also will be posting live updates to our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages (make sure to 'follow' us!), as well as writing a couple news stories and a live blog on what to expect.

 

Stay tuned!

 

G

I'm sure the answer is somewhere, but do YC passengers get priority on tenders if they're not a black or gold cardholder?

Thanks

Thanks, curiously enough, the privilege list I have in front of me (in Spanish) omits the line "Priority access on Tender boats and during shore disembarkation." May be it slipped the translator's attention, as everything else is there.

............ or maybe it's more up-to-date? With the way MSC are sneakily watering down benefits (see the Black Card thread), one never knows! :rolleyes:

See the spanish website. "Desembarque prioritario en puertos que requieren lanchas" is included for Black and Gold members.

Hi

We are currently onboard the Meraviglia and would like to say "don't believe all you read" about this ship. First off the ship is huge and there are passengers from every corner of the world. It is busy but then there are nearly 4000 passengers. The rooms are lovely and everything is spotless. The staff are fantastic and it is great to chat to staff who come from all parts of the world. The food is good. The evening meal is well cooked but small in portion although you can ask for two starters or two mains. The upstairs buffet is always busy but then it was on every cruise we have been on. The pizza is to die for though. The drinks package is great and there is a great range of drinks. The good thing is that if you order something that's not included they tell you. The majority of the passengers are Italians, who are fine. They do charge for things like water, but it comes in litre bottles which is great for taking to your room or on shore. Please don't believe the negative reviews. The ship and cruise is great and we would use MSC again.

All the drinks on the bar list except those marked with a red asterisk or 2 red asterisks are included

 

Aldo included are most special coffees and gelato by the cone or tub

 

here is link to the med bar list (2016) which will give you good idea what is included

Here's a link to photos of the most comprehensive bar list on Meraviglia from 2017 (from post #70 on). If you have trouble reading them, just right-click on each photo and select "Open image in new tab". You will then be able to zoom in:

Not all the bars will carry the full complement as some are smaller with less stock and some specialise, such as the Champagne bar.

So by the looks of these menus, most beers are NOT included in this order package? Is there a separate drink package that will include all drinks under $12-$15?

You can upgrade the Aurea included package to the deluxe (premium) package which covers all items except those with 2 asterisks which no package covers.
