Loved Yacht Club!

7 May 2024

I recently cruise on MSC Virtuosa, and while there were lots I liked about this ship, there was plenty that I didn’t.

Starting with the positives. The MSC Yacht Club experience was truly exceptional. From the moment we stepped foot into the cruise terminal, we were enveloped in luxury and pampered with impeccable service, particularly by Julian our butler. The private areas, premium dining options, and personalised attention from the staff elevated our cruise experience considerably. I don’t think I would cruise on Virtuosa again if it wasn’t for Yacht Club, as it offered an escape from the crowds and queues everywhere else onboard. It also makes Virtuosa feel small and intimate, which is weird considering how enormous she is.

Outside of Yacht Club, the ship felt more like a bustling ferry service than a cruise ship. Crowds and queues seemed to be constant wherever you went, especially in popular areas like the atmosphere pool, theatre etc. Navigating through crowds all the time, and having to wait 10 minutes for a lift was irritating. Because of this, we were practically confined to Yacht Club for most of our time onboard, but this was no bad thing believe me.

Something I found odd is that there were no captain announcements throughout the entire week onboard. It because a running joke between my husband and I that there wasn’t a captain onboard. It felt strange not to hear updates or even a friendly greeting from the captain. It isn’t an important factor, it was just very different to what I’ve experienced before.

Dining was generally excellent across the board. Yacht Club Restaurant never failed let us down, and we ate at most of the extra charge restaurants onboard and they were all very enjoyable. Indochine was our favourite, in fact its probably the most enjoyable Asian meal we’ve ever eaten.

One gripe was the prevalence of upselling and additional charges for certain onboard activities and services, but we knew this was a theme with MSC before we went. We really enjoyed our time on Virtuosa, and would certainly book a cruise on her again – but for us, we would have to insist on being in Yacht Club as the crowds are just too much for us, and not what we want whilst on holiday.
