Fantastic ship, very clean and cabin/excursion/resturant staff very helpful and polite.
We went on our first holiday without our children and did not expect to be on a ship overun with other people's children. As a primary schoolteacher I love children but do not want them running riot in the evenings in EVERY area of the ship. There are no adult only areas unless you pay for Top 18 which we did but you still have to put up with the awful noise coming from around the pool - the Italian DJ never shuts up!!!
During the very good entertainment in the bars in the evening we had groups of children throwing toys/flip flops to each other as well as bouncing on and off chairs and nobody stopped them.
The food is adequate but rarely hot. The evening entertainment is brilliant.
We did not buy the excursions as you can do them all on your own for half the price.
We chose MSC because of the ports that were visited but not enough time is given in each port.
The cabin was fantastic and the cruise good value for money but lack of activities during the day and the huge amount of children on board means we will never sail with MSC again.
