Review summary

I have been an numerous cruises and even small boats like this one and this was the most disappointing. The food was horrible and small portions. The buffet was worse, only decent thing were the French fries and pizza was minimal. There was little to no selection and it was the same stuff everyday. We actually started brining food on board from the ports so we didn't have to go to dinner. Getting off the boat was a scary situation, no direction and when people started cutting in line fights almost broke out. We had a suite because we wanted this to be a first class trip, they don't give you anything in the suite, no fruit, drink not even a towel animal. We could have saved a lot by just booking a regular cabin. We were suppose to have priority embarkation and disembarkation and got neither. I will never use AA to book a cruise since they are the ones who suggested it and I will never go on another MSC Cruise again.

I loved Venice but don't consider this a port since unless you got there the day before. This is false advertising. You have to start trying to get on the boat at 12:00 or you will be waiting in long hot lines for hours.

Only reason the port is getting this is because we docked at 8:00 PM and left at 3:00 am so it was dark so you couldn't really see anything. It also took forever to get off the boat which cut into the time we had. I will go back and just stay on the islands

When we docked it looked like we were in a ship yard and not a great part of town. We were told by the boat staff there really wasn't anything to do at this port and it would take about an hour to walk to the beach. When we looked out our balcony there was no real transportation to take unless you book an excursion.
