Review summary

MSC Seaside the most beautiful and high tech ship on the water. The most aggravating thing for me was the lack of elevator manners people not letting you get off and not standing aside. Too many people smoking on the balconies couldn’t enjoy ours. Dining room food was horrible!!


5 out of 5
Very smooth however, the crew in the terminal guiding you need manners a little rough around the edges.
