Appalling food

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Tenerife

One of the expectations of cruising is that the food will be of a reasonably high standard. We have cruised Celebrity, Cunard, Princess, Fred Olsen and others and the food has been a highlight.

Food on board MSC Armonia was so appalling. as to be virtually inedible. One main course on the gala dinner was grilled prawns which turned out to be three complete prawns still on the shell and lying in an unidentifiable sauce garnished with an eggcup size portion of rice. How one was supposed to eat the prawns remains a mystery. The remaining meals and choices were equally as bad and usually served lukewarm. The breakfast buffet was dreadful with rubber scrambled egg and almost cold mini omelettes.

The Allegrissimo drinks package was a bargain except that the promised choice of two white wines and two red wines didn't materialize.

This was very sad as the balcony cabin itself was .excellent and larger than most other lines and embarkation and disembarkation were More well handled. It is clear that MSC only offer lower priced cruises by sacrificing any attempt at food quality and presentation. Poor training meant that waiters frequently put the wrong food in front of you or missed a course entirely ( not a bad thing given the appalling quality. We won't be using MSC again or recommending it. Less
