Top TIPS for Cruising With MSC

Wait, does MSC stand for Memorable Suggestions for Cruisers...?

Nope. Even then, we all appreciate good tips, especially when visiting a theme park for the first time, boarding a cruise, or arriving at a beach resort in the middle of Jamaica. Some things we only learn after our first visit, and other insights come after several trips. Practice makes perfect, and visiting our favorite vacation spots repeatedly allows us to discover something new each time we pack our bags and embark on adventures around the world.

This time, we invite MSC expert Laoura Petrou to share a few tips about MSC Cruises. She has a lot of experience with those ships, so it's always a good idea to sit down, grab a pen and listen to what she has to say! Make sure to visit her travel advisor page later on and send her a message if you have any questions, by the way.

Well, here is what Laoura has to say!

  • Usually there are two formal nights onboard: one elegant and one gala night.

  • When traveling with kids, you will find the Doremi Club (kids' club) bracelet and registration form in your cabin shortly after boarding on embarkation day. You can register your kids so they can participate in free activities. They even have dinner or lunch together with other kids. If the bracelets and registration form do not arrive, you can ask your cabin steward or the reception, or you can register them directly at the kids' club.
  • The Doremi Club hosts amazing disco nights for families! These events usually start at 9 pm, where you can dance with your kids. There are also games available for both kids and adults.
  • MSC offers rentals for onboard strollers, bottle warmers, and other items baby travelers may need.
  • In the main dining room, kids are given a Doremi menu to choose from.
  • Once onboard, be sure to arrange your spa or beauty appointments early, as sea day slots sell out quickly. Additionally, when in port, you can enjoy amazing discounts on spa packages!
  • The MSC Voyagers' Club is a beneficial loyalty program that offers valuable perks. Members can earn double points when booking more than 12 months in advance. Silver members and above also receive $50 USD onboard credit per member!

That's all for now, friends! Do you want to know more? Make sure to send us a message or contact Laoura! We are here to help you out with MSC and any other cruise line you want. Scout's word.
