Review summary

Amazing cruise with great entertainment. The shows, the humor, the food- everything was designed to satisfy the European taste. The food variety was OK for first time travelers but it could definitely be improved if the cruise line would like to target frequent travelling US customers. No other comments. Overall, the cruise was fantastic.

This is the only comment I have in regards to the cruise. The variety of the food options could be improved. Compared to the US cruise lines dining options, MSC doesn't do that well. Relatively limited food options.

Best entertainment I've experienced. Sinan ( the cruise director), Carlos and Graham ((animators, dancers, a bit of everything pretty much) were the hit. They never took a break, and did amazing job. The dinner shows were great, the pool and night parties were amazing. Love that the entertainment was customized for the European customers ( 90-95% of the traveler

Loved the island. Highly recommend the Dunn River Falls excursion. We got a taxi driver from the port. Prices are negotiable.
