We stayed on deck 12 to be right outside of the jogging track, but the best part was we could step out every evening to the pool area where there was always a party happening.

My tip would be to be very careful where you allocate your holiday money. This company has a reputation for not caring at all for passengers and it was absolutely apparent from my first phone call to them via my Agent. They will agree everything and do nothing, they will make excuses, they will make up ridiculous rules for anything they want to. I can’t believe how bad they were.

If you aren't a smoker stay out of Lord Nelson's Pub. I thought it looked like a nice place to hang out but I couldn't handle the odor of cigarettes which is just as thick in the "non smoking" section. I hung out at the Beverly Hills Bar instead (which is also a good place for a cappucino in the morning).

Good value but not expect an American style pampered experience. Good for experienced international travelers.

Plan on poor communication. Getting off the ship in each port is tedious. Plan for that.


Oct 26, 2019

Go with an open mind and don’t believe everything you read.

It's a nice size ship with plenty of space

Check cabin location, avoid back of ship 10th floor. Sheer hell.

Great for kids. But don't fall for MSC's attempt to get you to book tickets on their extortionate transfer buses from the pier to the town (eg Chania and Bari).

Choose bigger ship for bigger bathrooms


Apr 06, 2019

Not the best ship for food and entertainment


Mar 04, 2019

Don't expect a wide selection of food or even tasty food. Go for the itinerary. I actually think I lost weight on this trip.

Middle size ship, you can find everything easy..

remember the safe is behind the mirror A general Tip for all Cruises remember to pack a 2 way plug extension as you can then use the sockets for the table lamps to charge your phones by the bed

Do NOT register your debit card with them as they’ll charge you twice!
