twangster Posted July 23, 2021 Share Posted July 23, 2021 This trip report is all about new. New for me that is. New user on the CruiseHabit message board. New to MSC. First revenue cruise of my new cruise restart. For those that haven't heard MSC has some really attractive rates at the moment so with exactly 14 days until the sail date I decided to jump on board. MSC has a status match program that I exercised a few years ago. My status match was expiring so this opportunity will also keep my MSC status alive and well. It's always good to try new things and I'm looking forward to trying not only a new cruise lines but also a new class of ship, for me at least. With many cruise lines operating at reduced capacity as they restart operations I see this as a great time to try new cruise experiences. For this cruise I've booked a Fantastica balcony on deck 9. I haven't fully discovered what Fantasica means but it was a small per cruise upgrade over the base rate so why not? I've heard great things about Yacht Club but I'm going to save that for another occasion. It's just 3 nights and I look forward to more of an apples to apples comparison with the balcony cruises I've done on other cruise lines. I've added a wifi streaming package and an excursion climbing the Ocean Cay lighthouse. Other than that my plan is just to explore Ocean Cay, MSC's private destination and enjoy the salt air of a sea day on our way back to Miami. Here is the cruise itinerary: With that it's time to let the countdown commence... 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
