Review summary

I have been on numerous cruises and would never even consider going on an MSC cruise again. This was suppose to be the trip of a life time, fly 1st class, get a suite and be pampered and see Greece and Croatia but instead terrible food quality, lack of variety, no real entertainment, tiny Casino, ok suite, horrible organization. The only positive besides getting off the boat in port was the staff in the restaurant, casino, bars and stateroom.

at the ports horrible, long and scary since fights almost broke out due to the lack of information and staff guidance. The last day was easy and well organized.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food quality, variety was horrible and not even edible.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
There really wasn't anything to do on board but sit at the pool. They did have the same aerobics and dance lessons everyday and a few games but that was the extent.

Highschool performances

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff in the restaurants, bars, casino and steward were fantastic, the customer service and management I would rate 2 stars.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was clean there really isn't much to this ship, tiny casino, bars were ok.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Are cabin was nice but by the pool and could be loud especially early in the morning with their aerobics. No real special anything for booking a suite and paying all that money.

Ship tip

Don't book it.

Ports of call

Venice, Italy

1 out of 5
I don't consider it a port since we just got on there and off. Stayed on our on for a couple of days and glad we did

Split, Croatia

5 out of 5
Loved this place we rented scooters

Santorini, Greece

4 out of 5
I wish they gave you more time, everything was rushed and it took forever to get on the cable car which cut into the little bit of time you got. We did the private beach and again because lack of communication with ship people were angry that the guide on the buss taking us to the beach didn't speak Italian when this was not a guided tour she was just trying to be nice and give some background of the island.

Mykonos, Greece

3 out of 5
I would give it 5 starts because it looked beautiful but the boat docked at night and not much time to see anything and it took for ever to get off the boat at another extra cost and very little time.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
Again beautiful place

Ancona, Italy

1 out of 5
Didn't get off the boat it looked terrible and took forever to walk to anywhere. Everyone who you asked that worked on the boat suggested you might as well stay on the boat it's not a good island but we spent more time there then anywhere else such a waste.


2 out of 5
The last day good, but during the cruise horrible, unorganized, time consuming, expensive and scary
