MSC is Unorganized

Recommended Posts

I just want to mention what happened to us at the Port of Miami by MSC.  We were on the Divina March 13.  When we arrived at the port no one would take our luggage!!!  We had to carry it on the ship ourselves...What's with that?  Did this happen to anyone else?

The Porter's don't work for msc .how late did you get there?. The Porter's make a killing on tips so I don't know what could have happened.

We went to all the MSC people and they kept sending us else where.  We were not late.  We probably should have dropped it off at curbside and then went and parked.  Other people were in line with their luggage too

Most ships sail at 4pm and the porters don't take luggage after 2pm.  I realize Divina sails later, but perhaps the porters keep the same hours...  EM

Look at the bright side. You just saved a bundle of money on tips.

What time did you arrive at port?

 

Either you were too early and the porters were still helping debarking passengers (they take your luggage to the parking garage if you are driving), too late, or you were not at the right place for the porters (they are not just outside the entrance to the building, but further down in a long portico between two piers.

The porters likely did not want to risk getting infected.

We arrived at the port terminal around 11:35 AM and had no difficulty whatsoever finding willing porters. Thank goodness...we're not light packers!
