This is probably ok for a middle class cruise. Know what you are getting. MSC will nickle and dime you for everything all week disturbing you with more selling.

Filthy, hawking their wares, approached by too many street people.

Staff were new, didn't know what they were doing, bartenders can't make a good drink, terrible service.
