I have been on two MSC Cruises and here are my top tips when cruising
Download the MSC for me app before you travel.
Make sure you check the MSC daily programme.
Before your cruise check out the theme nights during your cruise.
If you have cruised with other cruise lines make sure you status match with MSC voyagers club.
If your in the MSC voyager club make sure you take advantage of all your perks.
Prebook internet,drinks packages or any extras before you go as you will save the 15% service charge if you booked onboard.
You can use chat on MSC for me to message other family members for free and this does not require an internet package.
Buy a Mia Tui Sue Shopper great bag to take towels to pool area or trips ashore. Do check out their other bags for example Falmouth Beach bag, Isobel https://miatui.com
Buy a MSC for Me Wristband they are great for using when using slides or getting drinks and getting in your cabin.
When you are using the spa make sure you take your cruise card as you need to hand it in at reception. I made the mistake of leaving it in cabin. I therefore had to walk all the way back to cabin to collect it.
Remember your cruise card when getting off the ship.
Make sure you take your daily programme ashore as it has all emergency information.
Use the MSC shuttle buses as it will save you time and prevent you getting lost.
Check the departure time at each port to prevent you missing the ship.
Don’t forget to register your credit card at one of the activation points.
Take Sellotape to tape labels on suitcases we always put two on 1 on both handles just incase one label falls off.
Finally have a wonderful cruise and enjoy all the yummy food,drink and ports.
I hope you find this useful.

Firstly I am always using bottles for gym and dance classes or grabbing takeaway coffees. I saw an advertisement for Hydro flask and it looked like just the perfect bottle for both purposes.
I contacted Hydro Flask to see if they would be interested in me reviewing their product in exchange for a free bottle. Abbie Baynes sent me a lovely email enquiring which bottle I would be interested in.
Different types of Lids
I researched all the different bottles and chose the hydro flask 21 ozs standard mouth as this would be ideal for coffees and cold drinks. After I had used the flex top for a few weeks and found it was perfect for hot drinks. Although I found it inconvenient for dance classes as I had to keep it loose and was concerned I may knock it over. Many of my gym friends know how clumsy I can be lol. I contacted Abbie Baynes and explained the situation and she immediately sent me the insulated sports top which was brilliant when exercising and much easier. I use this bottle all the time now as it is keeps drinks hot or cold.
Hydro flask offer excellent customer service and their products have been very impressive. I have been recommending to all my friends to try these products. The products came very quickly my mail. When using the hydro flask for hot drinks they will stay hot for an amazing 12 hours. Therefore this allowed me to enjoy my drink slowly and not have to rush drinking it. I am looking forward to using this bottle lots over the winter period. I may try taking soup for my lunch to have as alternative to sandwiches. The Hydro bottle is ideal for a number of different purposes for instance days outs, gym, work and my all time favourite hobby dance classes.
In conclusion If you thinking of buying a Hydro Flask get one you won’t regret it. There is a large choice of different bottles and sizes and food flasks. If you have any questions please send a comment.
