April 2014 - MSC Preziosa to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
We spent a lot of money on the Excursions in Turkey and were overcharged on top of this. The tour guides (MSC approved I'm sure), rushed us through the historical sites in order to bring us to a leather jacket fashion show in Seljuk and a Turkish rug showroom in Istanbul. Hefty $thousands were expected to be made at both vendor locations. Real bad and dissappointing experience -for once in a lifetime port visits. Get your own touring company/guide to get the most out of your cultural visits if choosing MSC.
Reception staff aboard was rude and unhelpful and the MSC Club manager was never to be found, we were actually thinking of booking another cruise. Kuddos to the rest of the ship Services, including Entertainment, and especially the Dining Staff at L'Aberesque. Food was wonderful on the ship.
