Review summary

We had an excellent time on MSC and would do it all over again. We are eager to know when the cruise line will be departing from Tampa as we will book another as soon as we know! The ports could have better timing, but all in all, it was a beautiful cruise!!! I hope we are notified about Tampa!!!! PLEASE~

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The main dining room food was lackluster; we thought it would be better from an Italian cruise line. The buffet was surprisingly good...all the food was fresh and hot and there was always a good selection. The Butcher's Cut was wonderful...the Tempenanki was just ok.

Fabulous...the stage shows were awesome...diverse and at times, spell binding. I was totally impressed that they do 3 shows 7 days a week!

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

Everything was spic and span!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The only thing I can say is that I would have liked the beds by the balcony instead if the sofa. I would also have liked to know when booking that my balcony would have a metal "wall" instead of glass like most of the balcony cabins; I think that would have been a huge benefit while booking.

No, we were unable to do an excursion because of the timing. I would want the ship to be there during the day.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
