Having now completed 7 cruises over 8 years with MSC we continue to enjoy the multi national experience both on board and counties visited. This cruise will rank as one of our favorites great ship great food fantastic crew and many happy memories. Aurea experience anytime dinners great fun with food well presented attentive service by Rico our waiter and personally treated every night by one of the Restaurant managers Antonino from Sorrento. Buffet was good with a variety of foods available to suit all tastes cheeses cold cuts were all high quality with ethnic foods reflecting current port of call Speciality restaurants Butchers Cut magnificent ...went back twice French Restaurant great experience yummo Theatre only small for this size ship so getting to the free shows takes some advance planning Sky lounge after dinner is great as well as the Studio lounge Overall great experience with next MSC cruise booked for 2021 Read Less

My husband and I chose this cruise as it covered the Med, Suez, Petra and Ports in the Middle East. We arrived in Barcelona for check in which took 3 hours as there were so many people boarding and not enough staff to check us all in. The cabin was nice, double bed, sofa bed and balcony. The staff in the sit down restaurant were from Bali and all very nice people and very good at their job. The food offered at the restaurant was of acceptable standard, and the wine very nice. But then we get to the ship itself..... there was noise and loud music playing everywhere, no where to sit quiet and read a book....only on your own balcony. You cannot walk to the front of the ship as this is reserved for the Yacht Club only. The announcements were done in 6 or 7 languages and one announcement went on for 50 minuites in all of the languages!! The "organisation" of the excursions was somewhat chaotic....the Market place buffet was awful, not the food or the staff.....the mass of people all trying to grab food.....like, really!?!? The volume of thousands of people all talking made breakfast and lunch there AWFUL. The pool areas were just a mass of sunbeds crammed in, every bed touching the other, so you had to chose your area very carefully! We feel that all MSC have chosen to do, was to cram in as many paying passengers (Cattle) as possible on to this Ship...completely forgetting there are other aspects customers expect when cruising. The entertainment was hit and miss. Some good shows, but some a bit weak. Cirque du Soleil was very good. No, I will not be going on any MSC Cruise again!!! Read Less

Boarding rather good and smooth. First contact with on board photographers: bit agressive and pushy. First vieuw of the ship: bling/bling, modern, cold feeling, huge.... few places to take a drink, to sit down and relax (in case of winter or bad weather). Cabin (balcony) clean. Size: a little bit small and cramped. TV very good with BVN for the dutch speaking. 'ZOE' is like 'SIRI'... only standard questions you can find on the internet. Balcony nice with 2 chairs and a little stool. Bathroom small with pump showergell and shampoo. No paper tissues. Shower good with nice hot water. Market place very crowdy but with a little effort always a place to sit down. Choice for breakfast good, lunch rather poor. Little bell on the table to call a waiter. Plastic glasses and plates (!!) brrrr. Dining in Cerisier was rather good, not great. Lots of tables close to each other. Very noisy. Real plates and glasses this time. Simple dishes. Had the eays drinks package incluced in our cruise price. What a joke! You get to pick everything below 6Euro: a few cocktails with standard alcohols, alcohol free cocktails, Heineken, 2 white, 1 rosé, 2 prosecco's and 2 red wines. Everything else you must pay! A drink of 6.50Euro: pay the total amount!! So not only the 0.50Euro above your 6Euro limit. RIDICULOUS! And a lots of their drinks are priced.... 6.50Euro. MSC pushes you in the direction of an upgrade... The shopping area is nice to wander around. Lots of speciality restaurants with zero people in them... a waste of nice places to sit and enjoy the cruise. Cirque du soleil is good, not like a big production but it was OK. Drinks were awful. Area with glides and waterfun looks very nice for good weather conditions. Shall we travel with MSC again? In Yacht Club probably, in other cabins... don't think so. Read Less
