Get ready to be nickel-and-dime'd

Sail Date: August 16, 2015

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Need to use WIFI? They will charge you €16.50 per hour.

Need a soda or juice with your meal? You will need to pay for it. Only thing you get to drink with meal is water or very bad coffee/tea.

There are no towels in any of the pool or water play areas. You need to bring your towels from the room. If you lose any towels, that will cost you €20 per towel.

MSC will attach €8.50 per person per day to your bill as a "Service Charge". You can have it removed by going to guest services.

Kids want to play games - you can at a cost of €2 per game.

Pretty much no useful TV channels. Of course you can pay for a movie instead, at least €7.99
