I was very disappointed in this cruise (W. Carib. Jan. 10 - Jan. 17, 2009). Our first dinner set the tone. It took over 2 hours and we encounted a lot of time just waiting for the next course. The lack of training in speaking English left us often feeling as though they did not understand. The food was often served inappropriately (i.e. - scambled eggs served on toast instead of with toast.) To use the spa area(fitness center, steam, sauna, 3 hot tubs) you neede an appointment. Often the day was filled up before you could book. Asking to exercise while seeing no one using the equipment, I was told "sorry , you don't have an appointment." Others haver mentioned other problems that we found still exist. Bottom line: I would not recommend this cruise.

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: Everything else

Recommends MSC Orchestra? No.
