brief but amazing experience by EdFLondon

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I took a one-night cruise, Barcelona to Genoa, to get a quick feel both for MSC and for a ship this size. I was very happy with both and would definitely consider MSC in the future. Having sailed on 4 other lines for multiple cruises and usually on smaller ships than the Orchestra, this one was definitely plush and pleasant. Except for disembarkation, it was a perfect and flawless experience.

A great cruise. Loved the interaction with the crew. Made to feel at home. After 3 weeks was sad to get off. Highly recommend MSC.
