My favorite part of the cruise was making new friends. I was very disappointed with the amount of selling of items on the ship; not at stores but tables that were set up everywhere all time time! Morning noon and night. I am upset that I had pre bought a cocktail package and was told that vodka tonic is not a cocktail and that I had to choose from what they consider cocktails to be! The shore excursions were especially in Morocco very disappointing. It seemed as if we spent all day going to the shops where kickbacks were given Shopping time and pharmacy time was to be in the excursion but we were brought to a little shop where it seemed the guide would be getting something out of it. I heard so many good things about Msc and I would most probably not be returning.
