RUDE staff and even ruder passengers; activities for children ridiculously boring and staff delivers punishment to children (sit with hands folded in silence w/lights off for 20 minutes until talking stops); mediocre food (comporable to "Old Country Buffet") and same buffet items EVERY DAY that sit under heating lamps; very little activities; passengers packed like sardines at pool; no food available between meals; no managment to address concerns; very few English-speaking staff; staff annoyed by any questions from passengers; too short of time in Ports of Call; unexpected out-of-pocket expenses;I could go on and on...I would NEVER sail with MSC again.
