MSC Opera 3

Overall Member Rating


Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton
just back from Norwegian fjords on msc opera . ship 100% clean . the fire and safety drill was done to late we were on board all night and day then had it.!!! to late if any thing happened , other cruises did it same day you boarded.!!!

majority staff were polite . some i found did not smile or polite.

food OK plenty choices , but had better on other cruises .

entertainment very good.

did not like the 7 euro each a day for tips!!!!

plus 15% added to drinks on top of high price's

excursions were so expensive .on ship..

could get just as good on your on own outside ship in ports and was by far a lot lot cheaper..

the ports i liked the best were flam and Bergen very pretty places plus Amsterdam i love it been there time and time again.

all in all good cruise .

would not travel again with msc had better on other cruises and cheaper.. Less
