Review summaryWe enjoy MSC because we feel they are "one star" behind Holland America in quality, decor, and activities. This trip was a little lacking for us - the Cruise Director lacked enthusiasm. Prior cruises had a director who was visible and excited to be meeting guests. One show had "Anna" seemingly tired and not at all vested in guests entertainment. She was basically an announcer and that was all. The large group of 1000+ Vegans who took over some areas of the ship left us feeling shut out and unable to enjoy the library which we had looked forward to using when at sea. Their events and activities seemed to be a priority - sometimes closing us out of entire areas (pool deck and lounges).

Ports of call
Pros: Staff was excellent; ship was spotless
Cons: 1000+ guests were in a group "Holistic at Sea" and they took over the library and some lounges for their activities - blocking us from enjoying the full ship
