Wonderful overall

In response to review, MrChocoholic says ...

I'm also a teacher (retired) and single parent (12 y/o girl) who needs occasional kid-free time just as you do. This is precisely why I stay away from known kid-pleasers like Carnival and MSC during major holiday break time unless I'm with my kid. If you really prefer adult company during that time, try Celebrity or Holland-America. Note: if a ship has a waterslide, it's going to have a lot of kids. Also, MSC and Costa, being European, have a more lax and leisurely attitude toward children because that's how they parent. The things that we may find rude and inconsiderate in their children they find snobbish, stuffy and overbearing in ours. Two sides to every coin.

Hi Laurie, thanks for the review!  I don’t know about your sailing specifically, but MSC often offers “Kids Sail Free” promotions that will be particularly popular when school’s out.  There are some wonderful cruise options out there for when it’s time to get away from the kids!  Let us know here at when you’re planning your next trip and I’m sure you’ll get plenty of suggestions!  Happy cruising!

I have sailed on MSC twice, on the Poesia & the Divina.  I enjoyed both immensely.  The Kids Sail Free policy practically guarantees that there will be kids on board.  I suggest that you try other cruise lines that do not not offer this policy and stay away from holidays or the summertime when kids are off from school  Also I suggest you try longer cruises.  There are usually less kids on longer cruises.  .
