September 2016 - MSC Magnifica to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
The MSC Magnifica honors its name. The ship is beautiful, very clean, and its staff very well trained. On our day at sea we encountered a thunderstorm which lasted a long time, but the ship was smooth as glass. The itinerary was very good, only one day at sea, which was a big plus for us.
The passengers were from all over, but a very large majority were from Italy and there were a lot of children that had the run of the ship. This was mostly evident in the buffet restaurant and the pool area where they seemed to be unchaperoned. After a very hectic experience at the buffet restaurant, we went to all our meals at the sit down restaurant, adjusting our days to their opening hours. This experience was shared by all the passengers at hour table, avoiding the 13th deck at all cost.
Next time I will make sure that schools are back in session before I book our trip.
