As long as you know what to expect, its great!

Sail Date: October 2010
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

Please read all of the reviews about MSC Orchestra very carefully because for the most part they are true as far as:

*Great value for an international cruise

*Most patrons on the ship do not speak English as a first language (never found it to be a problem)

*You do have to pay for water in the dining room and coffee is not included except in the buffet

*Dining options are few-buffet and dining room but we did not find the meals bad-always great pasta options and appetizers.

*Entertainment is pretty non-existent

*The pool area is very crowded and small

I would suggest to go on this cruise if you:

*Would like to see beautiful ports that no other cruise line seemed to go to (Malaga, Alicante, Gibraltar, Genoa)

*Are not expecting/wanting to spend too much time on the ship

*Do not mind being one of the only English speakers (although ALL of the staff spoke very well)

*Would like a very budget More friendly international cruise (our 8night balcony room cruise cost only $899/person) Less
