Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All of the cruise ships I've been on had excellent food and dining ambiance. I would rate this ship slightly below those as far as food goes. The ambiance, dining times and overall service was superb. I would select this ship to go on anytime.

This was the only fault I could find with this ship. The entertainment was adequate. Some very talented artists but shows were not assembled very well.

How I would love to own this Island that MSC Cruiselines owns. It is a beautiful beach and they do a bar-b-que here for passengers.
Don't Miss: Beach and view

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

You can tell when you enter harbor the money is here at this Island. Big homes and everything clean and neat.

St. John's, Antigua

Setup your own excursion of the Island and see the other side and the beaches. You can do it yourself for $20 on the Island. (barter)

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

The Dutch side has really improved since prior trips. New dock, new buildings, improved beach( additional white sand ) and new beach wide sidewalk. The French side was always excellent.
Don't Miss: The French side of Island
