Ship Facts: MSC Opera Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Opera Deck Plans
MSC Opera - not ready for prime time!
The pretty ship has two flaws . . . a dull menu and a crew sorely in need of training.

The ship is classic italian . . .the drew works hard to serve. But no matter what you call it, pasta in red meat sauce is pasta in red meat sauce. The menu was dull and the food tasteless.

MSC also does some other oddball things . . . like shutting everything down for hours a a stretch and charging for room service. They have traditional seating and an extremely crowded buffet, partly becaasue dining hours are short.

MSC also seems to believe in a "no information is better" policy . . .basic stuff like the time the ship will sail from a port is either not available or available in several versions. So, for example, the run a shuttle from the pier to the center of town in a part and don't tell anyone!!!

We took a shot a MSC after 45 or so cruises looking for alternatives . . . will keep in looking.
