MSC Orchestra Cruise Review by makerfamily: As long as you know what to expect, its great!
Overall Member Rating
As long as you know what to expect, its great!
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
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
