Okay, enough with the bad right? The ship was really clean and that was awesome. The cabin stewardess, Anita, was great. Our room was always clean and tidy right after we left it and Anita couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We loved her. We gave her and our waiter an extra cash tip at the end even though MSC charges $12 USD per person per day to your account for tipping of all the crew who service you. You can however sign a form from the Reception ladies, who by the way give you a horrible stare when you ask for it, to make the tipping whatever you want or choose not to have your card charged and simply pay cash to whomever. This I find a bad idea though, because there are many behind the scenes guys who really need that money and unfortunately get ripped off because people are docking the tips due to terrible service elsewhere. Also, be prepared to wait a long time to disembark. They told us they would start at 0800 and to be out of our rooms waiting for the announcements at 0800 and our colors to be called to disembark. Well, 0915 and guess what? NOT ONE ANNOUNCEMENT! That was aggravating. We were all tired and just ready to go and they couldn't even give us the decency of one announcement to let us know that they were running late? C'mon. This shouldn't have surprised me, considering they never announced the time changes in different time zones and you had passengers wandering around at 0630 looking for breakfast and it was really only 0530. Everyone was really mad about that. Oh well. Just watch your money closely on MSC. I have traveled on many cruise lines before and I am very fair considering I am a flight attendant and realize how hard it is to make everyone happy and try to do everything fair and equal, but this ship is just not good. I really tried to enjoy myself, but too many things about this cruise were just plain wrong. Bottom line: Save your money and your sanity! Less
