Be sure to download the MSC for me app before sailing. Once on board, you will be able to look at a variety of things on your phone from this app as well as make reservations for shows, massages, etc. I found that about 75 of the cruisers were of varying dialects -- be patient, be kind.

Bring aboard and card games for entertainment and to pass time. Other than the nightly theatre show, the ship sorely lacks engaging entertainment. Also has several negative interactions with guest services staff. I found them to be quite rude, sarcastic, and dismissive when concerns were brought to their attention; especially one customer service rep by the name of Marisa.

We have absolutely no complaints at all. My husband said this was the first cruise he's taken that he didn't feel rushed, or pressured to get things done in a certain time frame. He says he was actually relaxed and well rested after this cruise. I couldn't agree more. I would suggest that you bring converters for the outlets, they only have 2-120v, but the are so close together that you can only use one outlet at a time.

The kid tracker they advertise is not available, so don't rely on having it. Bring walkie-talkies to communicate on board.

Bring your own music & speaker. Also watch out for the hip level towel rack in the bathroom it hurts real bad if you go near it.

Midship was great. We loved the coffee at the chocolate bar. The main dining was delicious.

My advice is to eat the gelatto, take the stairs instead of waiting forever for elevators (because once they come, they will be full anyway), get a spot early on the Adults Only Pool Deck on Sea Days, enjoy breakfast and lunch in the dining room, and get the MSC for Me App and book your shows through that right away, particularly if you plan on going to the late shows (the 6:45 shows never sold out, but the late shows did).

Get the deluxe drink package

The thermal area spa, of all the add ons (drinks, photos etc.) this was the best value for money. Great are without kids.

If you have a "small" credit on your account, do not think you can get off the ship. It should be noted that you STILL have to go to customer service or they will NOT let you off the ship. We were a party of 15, I was the last one in line. I did not care about my $9 credit because I did not want to wait in the long customer service line. When we went to get off the ship, they would not let me. My family, who was traveling to another state, was ahead of me and they did not realize I was not behind them. Therefore, since I had to go all the way back down to 5, I was not able to say goodbye to my family. This was heartbreaking unfortunately. So please let your passangers know that even if they have a credit and do not care about claiming it, you still need to go to customer service.
