Ship Facts: MSC Opera Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Opera Deck Plans
MSC opera very poor
We booked our cruise on MSC Opera for our 30th wedding anniversary. We had heard only good reports about cruising. This was my wife's first cruise although i had cruised before.

We booked MSC opera as we wanted to visit the Baltics and as my wife is a vegetarian we thought Italian cuisine would suit us.

The opera was extremely disappointing in many ways.

for us it was far too regimented, if you did not eat before 4pm then you had no other option than to eat at your booked dining time (you could buy a pizza) this type of dining was very is very restrictive and the set menu was terrible for my wife who is a vegetarian. The lunch time buffet was no better than a 2 star hotel and breakfast was a joke, there were just not enough seats and people were literally queueing with trays of food waiting for a place to sit.

The nightly show was very poor (magic show, juggler, can can dancers, flamenco dancers etc)the theatre was very full each night and the show only lasted about 30 minutes.

every announcement on the ship was made in 6 languages, this became very boring.

The smell of stale cigarette smoke lingers around the ship from the casino and one of the bars.

The drinks prices from bottled water and coffee to beer and cocktails were exorbitant.

It was just extremely poor in all departments and i would never use this cruise company again.
