You can order a drink and take it anywhere except to the theater. It made sense to take a shot in a few tournaments while I had the opportunity in soft fields given that I had traveled all the way to Australia, but after not having the best 4 months online prior to this the bankroll depletion wasn't particularly well timed. ACR will have it delivered to you by mail within a couple of weeks.
The food was amazing with lots of variety. Amazingly creative rolls Surf and turf. Appetizer dumplings with a sauce you could eat with a spoon. Service that is five star! Super experience and we will go back often. The view and the ahi with forbidden rice is off the charts. Great food and service. The views are amazing and the valet parking is a perfect touch. If you want a restaurant with an ocean view, well prepared dishes and attentive staff, this is it!
I highly recommend Pacific Coast Grill. I'll get right to the point. Great food, great service and great view of the sunset. Underwhelmed to say the least. Had heard such great things about this restaurant. Bathroom was messy and out of tp. The atmosphere is a bit diner-like with laminate tables and dressed down decor. Sit outside if you can. Perfect place to stop on the coast for dinner.
We had a great view, the service was super, and the food was fantastic. Sign up Sign in. Overview Photos Menu Reviews. Pacific Coast Grill - Cardiff. There are two levels of dining at the new PCG with every dining seat in the house carefully planned to have an ocean view.

Dined on September 23, In Europe, early seating begins at 7: This is in keeping with the lifestyle of the Spanish, especially, and the Italians.
Obviously, Americans will find this time to be far too late. The two main seating restaurants are Villa Verde and La Reggia. Villa Verde is placed in the stern of the ship on decks five and six with commanding views through two-deck tall picture windows. Finding the restaurant entrance is a bit tricky, since it is at the bottom of a dead-end staircase, which means one must approach from deck six and walk down.
The alternative restaurants are where the cuisine really shines. L'Olivio is the Italian specialty restaurant where the entire menu is a la carte. Appetizers began at 3 to 7 Euro, including cioppino soup or tuna carpacchio. The lamb chops served on a bed of mango risotto are out of this world, and the Mediterranean lobster with a tail as long as the plate is wide is a joy to behold.
The Bora Bora buffet is surprisingly good. One reason for this is the vast selection of foods required to satisfy the palates of so many different European cultures. Breakfast is a perfect example, one will find flaky croissants, fresh omelettes, juicy German sausages and English bacon. I have never experienced a buffet area where they managed to keep the food so warm, which is a significant but often under-appreciated accomplishment on any cruise ship.
The amount can be adjusted at the Reception desk. A gratuity for bar staff is already included in the price of drinks. Spa and casino staff may be tipped in cash at the discretion of the passenger. In the Caribbean, they have come to expect a tip from the North American clientele. In Europe, tradition dictates that tips be presented to service personnel on the last night of the cruise.
Children under 12 pay half those amounts. Again, the gratuity for bar service personnel is included in the price of the drink. Although this item is at the bottom of the page it is extremely important. Europeans cruisers are extremely casual in their dress.
Even though the prescribed dress code on the ship for most nights on our seven night cruise was informal, which was defined as jacket and tie for a man, in fact, most people were wearing blue jeans and open toed shoes. There were T-shirts and untucked dress shirts with no necktie. In fact, on almost any given night if one did not feel like changing out of their casual day clothes one could walk any place on the ship and not feel out of place. Of course, some of the ladies seemed to enjoy dressing up a little more than the men.
Bottom-line, if you enjoy extremely casual ships then you can't do any better than MSC cruises in Europe. Not only is she greater in length than the height of the Eiffel Tower, she was the largest cruise ship ever built for a European ship owner at the time of her introduction. To test your driving skills, there are Formula 1 simulators. Unusual for a cruise ship, there is also a squash court.
The extensive use of various colored marbles adds a luxurious quality to the traditionally styled public lounges and a hint of Italian style as well as art deco and art nouveau touches. MSC Cruises has always been sensitive to environmental issues, and Fantasia-class ships are on the cutting edge ecologically.
They are equipped with the most innovative technological systems to guarantee savings in energy and protection of the environment, such as the water-processing systems. MSC Divina has more cabins and a higher double-occupancy rate and a stunning infinity pool at the back of the ship. More widely known as one of the world's largest cargo shipping companies, MSC has operated cruises with an eclectic fleet since the late s.
When the line introduced two graceful, medium-size ships in and , it ushered in an era of new shipbuilding that has seen the fleet grow faster than any other European cruise line. This line is growing into a major player in both Europe and the Caribbean.
MSC blankets the Mediterranean nearly year-round with a dizzying selection of cruise itineraries that allow a lot of time in ports of call and include few if any sea days. In summer months, several ships sail off to northern Europe to ply the Baltic. Itineraries planned for repositioning sailings visit some intriguing, off-the-beaten-track ports of call that other cruise lines bypass.
No glitz, no clutter—just elegant simplicity—is the standard of MSC's seaworthy interior decor. Extensive use of marble, brass, and wood reflects the best of Italian styling and design; clean lines and bold colors set their modern sophisticated tone.
MSC adopts some activities that appeal to American passengers without abandoning those preferred by Europeans; however, regardless of the itinerary, be prepared for an Italian-influenced experience.
Also expect to hear announcements in several languages. Read All User Reviews 9. I was a first time cruiser from the USA that lives in Spain. I will start off by stating that overall, this cruise and MSC exceeded my expectations. However, I did a lot of research before I booked, as I do with anything. I read reviews about how the food was awful and cold, and that service was horrible, and that there are kids running amok everywhere.
I have come to the conclusion that those people are blockheads. There are people who walk amongst others, that don't take the time beforehand to figure out what it is they are getting into, much less know how to work around an unpleasant situation to make the best of it.
They are probably also people who don't like being out of their comfort zone or have never experienced different cultures. You need to know that many different cultures of people cruise this route.
You will find very polite and queue line respecting Australians and British. And you will also find all for one, cut in front, didn't see you there or care much less Spanish and Italians. These are cultures and ways of life.
So this is what you will run in to. I have lived in southern Spain for over a year now, after having been raised in the Midwest of the USA, where being helpful, polite and respectful is a way of life. I had already been conditioned to the stepping in front of you thing from Spain, and therefore it didn't bother me.
However, if you find extremely large crowds, quarters full of people moving about, and line cutting or going in front of you to catch the elevator might ruin your day, then don't take this cruise.
Just find something else with much less people that will agree with you. The food in the dining rooms table service for breakfast and lunch are very good.
The speed of service is reasonably timed; however it's a little overkill on the offering of bread. Most people would prefer to be offered beverage service 5 times per meal instead of breads and croissants.
But eventually you will be able to make your beverage order. Again, the food is very good, but the comfort of seating isn't very relaxing. The food in the dining room for dinner is fantastic. The service is very slow and it is very loud in the dining room.
However, if you take a look at the number of people being served, and the number of service personnel that are using the system MSC wants them to use, it is quite acceptable. I read reviews that stated the food was horrible and cold.
The food just isn't going to arrive piping hot when they are trying to serve a thousand. And I think people who haven't experienced many different cultures will be turned off by unfamiliar tastes. You get about 6 courses for dinner at the restaurant and the seating is comfortable.
The buffet on deck 14 is a bit of a madhouse free-for-all. If you do go to the buffet, take the time to walk the entire oval shape of serving lines first. This will let you know where there are plenty of seats, and what you will find at the ethnic food corner. I read reviews where there wasn't a place to sit. Again, pure numbskulls who don't take the time to explore their options. They think they should be able to walk into very good quality for the masses cruise line, and have everything fall into their lap.
Most of the time there are plenty of open seats at the back of the buffet restaurant, where it is much quieter. I am very particular, so I knew that if I didn't have a room with plenty of space and a fantastic view, then I wouldn't have been comfortable. So I chose cabin Aurea Balcony Suite and would recommend if you are booking for that class of cabin, choose a cruise date where you will get either or I could literally lie on my bed, and look out 2 huge panoramic windows and see wherever we were.
It was more relaxing to look at the views of a port with my head on my pillow, than from the pool deck. Also, the balcony for this cabin wraps around to the end of the first panoramic window to where there is an access door for the rest of the balcony.
It was left open when I arrived and I didn't want to upset the folks with the panoramic view windows without balcony access, so I didn't walk in from of their windows. I would have guessed the cabin suite to be about square feet with square feet of accessible curved balcony. I could see from the back of my side of the ship to about the 10 o'clock position when walking the entire balcony, so about a degree view.
However, it is very windy when sailing above 10 or so knots. Plus the location of the cabin is far away from where you would find kids doing any nighttime tomfoolery, and there is no one above your bed. The bath room had a tub with a shower nozzle. I am 5'11" and I had to duck a good bit to wet my hair.
Your cabin steward will visit you twice each day, and will restock all towels, clean the entire cabin, make up the bed, and restock the mini bar on each visit. When it's busy, the service is very slow, except in the cigar bar where most people won't go due to smokers. There just aren't enough service personnel to match the number of passengers in both the bars and the restaurants.
However, if you do it right, then you can stay satisfied. You can order a drink and take it anywhere except to the theater. So, if you're going to have an alcoholic beverage, go get one at the bar and then take it back to your room while you are getting ready. That way when you show up to slow service, at least you've already started. Most of the cocktails I ordered were pretty good. Also, there are entertainers throughout the ship and in most large bars and lounges.
Some are not very good, and some are okay. They do help a little with the ambiance, especially around the main lounge. Back to the cigar bar; they have some Domincan, some Cuban, and some Italian cigars to choose from. I was surprised that the Italian cigars were that good and they were the cheapest.
Pools and hot tubs. There are plenty of children on this ship, and they are in full force at the pools. If you were a kid, isn't this where you'd be? So if you are thinking you are going to soak up the sun in peace and quite, take a dip in a hot tub solo, and have a drink delivered to your lounger, then this isn't the place.
Find an all inclusive resort somewhere else that has a reputation for no children. There is an adults only deck, but it is located very close to the kids water slide. No Einstein award for that one. They are very good, but also a bit random. From acrobatic maneuvers, to singing to dancing all mixed into a show. My opinions consider the fact that it is part of the cruise package, and not a high priced ticket I paid for independently.
So, the talent for this value was better than I expected. Although we only went to 4 of the 7 shows, I only felt that 1of them was not worth sitting through. I noticed the older Europeans were none too impressed with that show. The Michael impersonator didn't have the flair that Michael did, but my wife explained to me that if he tried to do that with the wig he was wearing, it wouldn't stay on very long.
Also, Michael grabs his crotch a lot, much like the original Michael, so if you don't want your kids to see that, then don't take them.
A spa visit could also be a visit to the adult only solarium on deck 18 rather than a visit to the saunas or steam rooms. That is the offer as you are checking in pier side at their building and the next day. And there are plenty of appointments available. Now, the massages themselves are not that great. I have enjoyed massages for over 20 years, and so I think I have had enough to provide an accurate rating. I give them a 5 out of a Oh, and if you have seen a picture of a hot tub in the Spa, then that is on some other ship.
The Spa manager confirmed this when I asked where it was. The FANTASIA only has 2 steam baths Turkish baths , 5 or so saunas, a yoga room, and a relaxation room where you might get some sun through the glass windows if the ship is sailing in the right direction.
The gym is really nice. The weights and equipment are Technogym. If I were to ever buy weight equipment again, it would be Technogym. And you can run or walk on the treadmills and have a fantastic view beyond the front of the ship.
I didn't get off the ship for Bari or Dubrovnik. We were pier side for all ports except Santorini and Dubrovnik.
I had excursions booked for English, which meant English along with another language such as Italian or Spanish, or both. Meaning the guide would talk in one language and then the other, much like the announcements on the ship. I like excursions because all I have to do is show up on time and they take me where I want to go on an air conditioned bus, and they get me back to ship.
The ship won't leave while an excursion is still out. Yes, you might experience a crying and bored 3 year old on the coach. For the people that just want to set foot on the soil to say they have been there, then there are usually the little portside shops and restaurants. For me, that is no way to experience a city.
