Review summary

2nd cruise with MSC. Smaller but not small ship. Never felt crowded with the boat full. (2400 cruisers) Staff was the best ever! Food was adequate portions & a wide variety for lunch & dinner. Best pizza on the ocean! Always felt welcome & attended to by our wait staff & room steward! Shows were OK but short, maybe 30-45 minutes. Will certainly cruise with MSC again next year!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had a full ship but plenty of seating inside & outside. Tasty food from many countries. Staff excellent. La Pergola staff & cuisine very good!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Fitness center is adequate. Could feature a few more different cardio machines. Movies for adults & kids. Wife loved the on board shopping discounts. Plenty of bingo, karaoke, game shows, language lessons, music, poolside activities, etc.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The performers were awesome! I only give them a 4 Star rating because a couple of shows we were disappointed. We sailed on MSC Divina & those shows rocked!

Service and Staff

Best steward in 10 cruises! Best wait staff in the buffet & La Pergola restaurant in 10 cruises! Always a smile & very attentive!

Ship did not look 18 years old! Very well kept!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Balcony was fine for two to three people. Room was big enough. Plenty of luggage storage & drawers for a couple! Bed was very comfy!

Ship tip

Bring a large covered cup if you like to drink all day. Beverage cups are very small & bottled water is $2.75 each!
