Could've done better. MSC could've done better. Especially with the food. And they did NOTHING for our Anniversary except give us a bunch of papers with coupons to spend more money.

Embarkation

This part was ok. We arrived early so the line wasn't long.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food on MSC was terrible. Needed more flavor. Only one buffet open for late night and it didn't offer much. Just pizza, cookies, and cold cuts. Only one bar open late night and it was were the smokers hung out.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
VERY poor scheduling of the activities. Everything was scheduled at the time of our dinner or during ports.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
But we only got to see one show. They took away the 10:45 shows for some reason and did not tell us. When had a late dinner so we missed most of them.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

Very clean ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very nice and clean. But the bathroom was way too small. My husband couldn't turn around in the shower and had to sit sideways to use the toilet. He is very tall and husky.

Ship tip

Season the food better. Schedule more late night shows and buffets. Add more selection to the late night buffets. Have a bar open for the non-smoker late night.

They had cuttlefish with some type of sauce dripped on it on the buffet with no type of seasoning, no salt, no pepper, no garlic, no lemon, no butter sauce.... nothing.  Was NOT tasty at all.
