Review summary

Nice ship, but elevators were out of use all week (one side). Probably the biggest complaint was the lack of English spoken by crew members. Even the information desk; they told us to come down in person as they didn't understand what we were asking. Although our wait staff during dinner tried their best, there was no expedition of food between courses. We had first seating to insure enough time to get to the Irish Entertainment each night. Each evening's meal took two hours! We looked forward to the lobster, but it was nothing like we ever experienced before! Over cooked, dry, and no butter to go with it. When we asked for the butter, we got oil. This was our third cruise and the food was ok, but it lacked presentation as on other lines. If it weren't for the spectacular entertainment of the Irish Stars and the theater they performed in, the whole week would have been disasterous! PS - we were witness to many people falling on ship due to the unecessary steps in the internet cafe and various clubs. Bathrooms not adequate outside the large dining room with only two stall bathroom.

Pros: The Entertainment and the Theater

Cons: Lack of communication with staff and attitude of staff

Recommends MSC Orchestra? No.
