Review summary

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".

The cabin was way below standard of competitors and not thoroughly cleaned before boarding. Cabin butler.........non existent!
