Cruise line - Any good?

So I am thinking on doing a Caribbean cruise with MSC but skeptical because I have heard mixed reviews.  Can you folks enlighten me about MSC and their quirks and is it a decent line?

I see no one has responded. I'll speak as a third party that hasn't sailed MSC. My coworker and his wife go on cruises frequently and often sail on MSC. They like it and have never complained about their service. I've read that MSC crowds can be snobbish but my coworker says they always make friends on their trips. They have done both European and Caribbean MSC cruises.

On one cruise MSC was in the same port as The Carnival Glory that I was on. I asked some of the people getting off the MSC how they liked it, they said the food was as good as RCI and service was also good. They said that MSC had stepped up the food from what they had years ago. It is a more European experience then the typical cruise line.

I had read that MSC will match your loyalty level of other cruise lines for perks.

There are plenty of opinions both positive and negative about the cruise line. I was on two of their ships, the Davina & Poecia. I also toured and had lunch on the Lyrica. I loved my two cruises. Stick to the Italian food on board. I loved the entertainment. Since it is a mix of cultures on the ships, the shows are all singing & dancing revues including magic acts and aerial acts - no comedians. Announcements are in different languages. Go with the flow and you will have a good time. Don't expect all the American amenities like rock climbing wall and water parks. Ne ships will have these, though. The ships are elegant.
