7 Night Bermuda (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 11, 2015
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 13161
Traveled As: Couple

This cruise was a new experience.  Having previously cruised on the standard American based lines, this was on the MSC Davina which is based in Italy.  The cabins were nice albeit small in comparison to the balcony cabins on other lines.  The buffet was a disaster.  Hard to find seating and when you did the food wasn't near you.  Once you got to the food and got back it was luke warm at best.  Much better in the dining room.  Food was excellent but for some of those onboard not large enough portion sizes.  We found them about right since you could do appetizer, soup, salad, entrée and dessert and of course you could order 2nds of anything.  The real bright spots were the shows each evening, full production shows of outstanding quality.  The only other negative was MSC changing the itinerary (before the cruise so it wasn't weather) to reduce the number of days in Bermuda (which is why we booked this cruise).  They gave a $25 per person credit, which doesn't make up for the loss of 1 day on the beautiful island of Bermuda.

Ship Tip

Make every show they are great, use the dining room for most meals rather than going to the buffet and ask for seconds if you are still hungry
