Review summary

The ship was lovely and well maintained. The staff was always friendly and greeted us with smiles no matter the day or what activity they were engaged in. Our cabin was nice, the food plentiful and varied. My only disappointment was the short time allotted at the different ports and some of the evening entertainment shows. I would definitely cruise with MSC again.

Extensive menu in the Main dining room, wait staff were on top of everything. The buffet was excellent everyday. Fresh tasty versatile ,something for everyone. Our head waiter, Adam Letlole and his assistnt, Fight Well, were phenomenal!

Iā€™m afraid this was the worst part of this cruise. The stage shows in the theatre were on par with high school shows with a big budget for costumes. The Michael Jackson tribute show on the last night was great and the best by far. Up to that last night show, the shogun chef in the Japanese restaurant on ship, was more entertaining then their theatre production shows. Design by director and producers would probably take this blame for low quality. As the dancers and singers definitely have talent, as witnessed in the Friday night last show.

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

Adam and his assistant, Fight Well table 665) were extraordinary in the dining room. Our room steward not so much, we had to ask for the daily planner twice room 14068. And had to ask for a second sheet, as only one covering the mattress and a comforter were provided.
