Review summary

Excursions to Malta and Olympia


i reviewed this ship prior to departing Australia as the Travel Agent said MSC was up with the best. Up with the best no where near it. Where do you start


on two occasions we English speakers were left in the cold because the guides could not enunciate the English language. After complaining things got better and we were advised on the tour of Hieraklion that no English speaking guide was available for our tour

maitre d was rude ignorant and obnoxious and self serving

food was luke  warm and seafood overcooked

You were badgered as soon as you embarked to buy inflated drink packages

nothing was free other than water from the buffet cooler. Any other water coffee ice cream had to be paid for. 

Entertainment in the theatre was good but the song list in the tiger bar was replayed many times

All of these points have been made for at least the last five years and little or nothing has changed. MSC managemnt need to get with the program
