An interesting Cruise

Sail Date: March 01, 2007

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We liked layout of the ship, were impressed by the exceptional cleanliness, the roominess of the cabin and the extraordinary service of the crew .
The preparation of the food dedicated for the European tongue! Breakfast served in the restaurant was much better than the buffets (buffet has room for improvement - eggs / toast were often cold). The Lunch-buffets offered a good variety of the hot dishes, but the salad part of the buffet was always the same. The dinner served in the restaurant was a seven course meal. The pasta course was always the best!
We liked the excellent shows in the evening. Exceptional artists, but we had to get adjusted to the fact that they were scheduled before dinner!!!
Sometimes during the day you couldn't get coffee, ice tea or pizza. Amazingly they still offer midnight buffets - very seldom today on other cruise ships. These buffets were exceptional!!!!!!

Pros: the effort of the crew to make the cruise an exceptional experience as well as the cleanliness

Cons: Quality of the food, excursion desk

Recommends MSC Opera? No.
