Ship Facts: MSC Orchestra Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Orchestra Deck Plans
As long as you know what to expect, its great!
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 friendly international cruise (our 8night balcony room cruise cost only $899/person)
