Fantastic MSC cruise!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We also enjoyed most of the entertainment at night, as it was quite different from the Las Vegas type shows we were use to on other ships. I am sure some people would of preferred that. There were ballet type ropewalker singers and dancers. There were two great magicians that put on excellent shows. They had a few piano concerts and an opera singer, but we only saw one and it was wonderful if you like classical concerts. The only thing we didn't care for was the comedy in one of the lounges. It seemed to be more like a highschool program and maybe not even that good. Needs great improvement! The kids probably would like it, but this cruise definitely had a majority of seniors (55 and above), which includes us. We spent three days at sea, and never got tired of the ship. We played miniature golf and always seemed to find something fun to do. They also had Italian lessons each day and I wish I would of been able to do that. This cruise had three gala nights and we dressed as they asked us. Some people didn't, but I am sure they didn't have as much fun. This made for a great atmosphere at dinner and after. We were always treated like King's and Queen's so we got to dress for the part. It was fun as how often do you dress up. I just want everyone to know that we felt this was a wonderful cruise in most ways. I am sure you will always find something you don't like as you know we are all different and like different things. We would definitely go on a MSC cruise again. The value, accommodations, food and service was fantastic!!!! You must try it and you decide? Less
Cabin review: 8
Couldn't find the safe. Look behind the window. Remember this is an Italian ship. Good size room, large picture window. Bathroom bigger than some we have had. Pictures on wall a little strange! Lots of drawers and closet space. Under bed storage we never had on other ships. Overall the room was great!
