MSC A TERRIBLE TASTER CRUISE WEEKEND
Destination: Cruise to Nowhere
Evening meal was awful. This was to be at 8.30 the doors didn't,t open until 8.40 and we did not get a menu until almost 9 pm. There were no rolls or jug of water on the table. We were handed bread, eventually. Four times we asked for water and wine, but we're ignored. The five course meal was terrible. The mozzarella was tasteless, the soup watery, the salad was an iceberg lettuce floating in water and my turkey was rubbery. Our friend asked for the cheese and biscuits, but only received cheese. When he pointed this out, the waiter took the cheese away and then gave him a plate of crackers minus the cheese. What a shambles.
It appeared to us that there were not enough staff, and those that were available were sullen and unhelpful. It seemed that the staff were left to muddle through without any leadership.
The final straw was being told to vacate the cabin at 6.30 am.All the other cruises we have been on are around 8 am.
Many of the passengers we spoke to said it was their first experience at cruising and would be their last. We told them that this was the worst cruise we had been on and would not cruise with MSC again., so not to be put off cruising by this weekend experience. There are much better cruise liners around.
We feel that MSC missed a golden opportunity to showcase themselves, instead the blew it. Less
