Review summary

Our first with MSC, and we were pleasantly surprised and happy with the ship, service, food and ports of call. Was a nice clean ship, well ran and a very good first experience with MSC.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Considering that the orchestra had 3 embarkation/debarkation points, it was clam and easy.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
A different menu than what I'm used to from carnival, but all the food was great. The passengers at the the buffet were rude, pushy and would simply elbow you out of their way, but that's not MSC's fault. MSC could however add more seating.
