Review summary

I’ll never sail with MSC again. We had such a horrible week. We’ll stick with Princess. They know how to treat their passengers.

Embarkation

1 out of 5
Horrendous. Long lines & chaos

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The waiter didn’t know what vegan meant. We ended up eating in the buffet for every meal which wasn’t great but at least we could choose vegan options. The reception sent us an apology gift- a bottle of champagne & a plate full of meat.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
The entertainment was good. There wasn’t enough other shows that were interesting. Everything else you have to pay for.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Stage shows & cirque du Soleil were excellent.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Our steward was great. Bartenders were friendly. Dining room staff was nice but not efficient. Buffet staff told me to get my own water. While you’re eating staff will interrupt you to try to upsell you. We find this to be incredibly tacky & annoying.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It’s a beautiful ship but too closed in. Not enough windows or easy access to outdoors.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was great. No complaints. We spent most of our time there.

Loved our local tour guide, Dennis.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
Beautiful island but we didn’t do any tours. That’s the reason for 3 stars. The port itself was like any other cruise port. Stores & people yelling at you to buy their stuff.

OCEAN CAY MSC MARINE RESERVE, BAHAMAS

4 out of 5
This is one thing MSC did with excellence. Their island is beautiful & Ocean Cay was a wonderful grand finale.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
I was surprised that it went so smooth & fast.
