Review SummaryThere are too many cruise lines on the market for me to ever want to experience MSC again. I found the majority of the staff to be discontent with their jobs and it was pretty obvious. They really could use a technical upgrade to cut down on all of the announcements they make in so many different languages as I was probably woken up from my siesta at least four times by the ding dong sound of an upcoming announcement. I found the front desk staff to be quite annoying but I tried to not let it get to me. Many people on the ship complained about a multitude of problems they were having and although I also experienced many things wrong I followed through and made sure they were corrected and moved on. It does get tiring though. One of the best things I purchased was an all inclusive drink package which I heard of through Cruise Critic and which was an invaluable savings. That also needed some explaining to the staff most of whom had never heard of this package before.
This was my fourth cruise and my first where I had a balcony room and I would never cruise without a balcony room again. It was a fantastic addition.

Another weird thing was the color of the water in the swimming pool by the end of the day. It would be grey.....scary. I stayed out of it.
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: I liked the ports we went to.
Cons: All of the announcements on the ship in 8 different languages.
