MSC Virtuosa first-hand experience live from passengers


MSC Virtuosa first-hand experience, live from passengers onboard.

After setting sail onboard MSC Virtuosa on her inaugural sailing, also the first to set sail in British waters after the cruise suspension, we interviewed a few guests to understand their overall sentiment onboard. Here is what they said... 

Emma, Isle of White 


How are you finding the health and safety measures onboard?  

The most surprising element, I could feel normal [...] the ship is so clean. I feel so relaxed and forgot what’s happening in the world. 

Ed, London 


Why did you choose a coastal cruise over a local staycation? 

The convenience of taking the train from London (to Southampton) is why (hopping on) a Coastal cruise is so good. And it’s less expensive. 

Gail, London 


Are you enjoying the experience onboard this ship so far? 

We knew the option of travelling abroad this year was going to be limited and too risky. (So) we feel privileged to be here. It feels exclusive and special. (Like we're) part of a special club. 

Janet & Sarah, Southampton 


What is the most impressive aspect MSC Virtuosa surprised you with? 

My surprising part is how clean (the ship is), and how everybody is so good with their COVID checks. I am really impressed [...]. I think this cruise has more than exceeded my COVID expectations although I was nervous.
