If you are prepared to pay extra for a good cup of coffee, real glass of juice or even bottled water, than this cruise is for you,

The ship was beautiful, and service mostly attentive, but their "nickel and dime" attitudes really turned us off. The European crowds are pushy, loud and rude, so be prepared for this particular experience.

They charged 20 Euros for one hour of horrific Internet service, and complaining fell on deaf ears.

Their bottom line is this:
Sucker you in with a low rate, and then charge for everything else. I would never go with MSC again...

Free coffee and juice at breakfast (only) real bad... Cofee weak and tasteless, but if you paid for a capuccino, then it was great. Juice tasted like Tang...yucch!!!
