A big disappointment.

Having recently been on cruises with Celebrity and Holland  America, MSC are a distant 3rd on accommodation, service and food!

Venice is a poor port to embark/disembark from.......will advise all friends to avoid.

The food is not of a high standard and the "smash and grab" buffet was a disaster.

I have to be honest and say "never again MSC".

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was way below standard of competitors and not thoroughly cleaned before boarding.
Cabin butler.........non existent!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Chaotic........facilities in Venice are appalling.
First Class is an unknown quantity to MSC
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Don't go!!
Try another cruise line
