Review summary

The ship was excellent, the itinerary was superb, the staff were mainly OK, but the Organisation was not up to standard.


Cold food in the dining room, a minimum 10-minute wait for a drink, poor quality entertainment.


MSC need to buck their ideas up a bit and get themselves organised, middle management should spend some time on RCI, to see it's done.
