If you click the big yellow button Cruise Reviews & then choose MSC from the drop down list you can read the good, the bad & the ugly. In terms of rating them against your choices, RCI & Celebrity are in a different league to MSC. I can't help with Thomson but they get constantly good reviews albeit they are older ships, & Costa would need to be offering free cruises & limo transfers to get a response from me. The reviews say it all. The New ships are lovely, exceptionally clean, good service, school dinners, chaotic organisation, but good value for money. RCI are 4 star Celebrity are 5 star MSC are 3 star so keep any expectations at that level. Regards Wiba.

Exellent coment. Take every cruise as it comes and enjoy the best moments and try to ignore the worst and there are very few of them.

Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...
