Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main Dining room was great, pretty good food, not exquisite but good. Stewart and Danilo were our waiters and they were the BEST we have ever had on any cruise. Buffet was good food but basically the same thing every day. They could definitely vary it up a bit.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Lots of pools and jacuzzis. we always were able to get a spot in a pool or a deck chair when we needed.

We didnt do the stage shows but the various bands around the ship sounded great!

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Literally cant say enough good things about the kids program on MSC. We have a 2 year old and Marina in the baby care center was amazing! She took care of our daughter several times throughout the week and always went above and beyond. Great!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone on the ship was great! Cabin Steward cleaned the room well but wasnt personable at all. Didnt even introduce himself.

Ship Quality

Loved the layout! Never felt crowded at all

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We loved the enlarged balcony but felt the room was oddly laid out. The closet was crammed next to the couch so you had to squeeze between them to put your clothes in. The bathroom layout was terrible as well. When your using the toilet you actually have to sit sideways since the counter is interfering with your legs lol. kinda odd.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
we love san juan, but the boat arrives at 5pm and leaves at 11 so not much time to do anything.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
