I would try to give an honest review. First of all I would like to start of saying that I read a lot of negative reviews and was a bit upset before going on this cruise, but thankfully I read them after I booked so I could not really change anything. At this point I can say that the people who wrote those reviews either had high expectations or very spoiled. Now let me start my review with saying a few words about the food in the restaurants; at the dinner time the food is very good and tasteful, every night there is a different menu. The bread and all bread products are baked fresh every day. Breakfast buffet does not have a lot of variety, but you can always find something to eat, lunch buffet has a bigger variety and to different tastes. If you will be traveling with kids you can always find something to feed them with. The staff on the ship is very friendly and helpful. The entertainment is very good especially the shows. Every night there is a different show, the singers and all the entertainment staff are very talented. The cabin was clean, but small. The shower is small I think it is good enough for a child but not for adult, especially you are not skinny, and not petite. Of course there were some minutes too. For example I was surprised I had to pay for my daughter's ice cream. I didn't know it is equivalent to beverages. The only thing that I personally don't like about cruises not only this one is I think they are overcrowded. Everywhere you go you bump into people. I gave this cruise four stars because it is not perfect but overall is good and I enjoyed being on this cruise and would recommend it to others and would come back but to different itinerary but only because I like to see new places.

The food was poor, even in the restaurant. We decided to go to the sushi restaurant which was also v. poor. The chicken from the noodle soup was dry and resembled the grilled chicken served as an alternative in the restaurant which make me think this was leftovers (paid 84 Euro's to find this out). The 2 hot tubs didn't work for the first 2 days of the cruise, then when they were repaired they had to be shared by over 2,000 cruisers...this was managed by the staff who allowed you a 5 minute turn...really! Are bags were lost on embarkation and damaged on disembarkation. The QUEUES please be very aware that it takes more than 40 minutes to get on and off the ship with only 2 entry/exit points and security that is severely understaffed. This meant significantly less time at destinations and having to cut short are plans. The entertainment, I have seen much much better amateur productions. Not even good. Will not be cruising with MSC again, Read Less

My first cruise , so wanted a short "try it out" type holiday.Embarkation, was a nightmare , 31/2 hours of queueing to get on board and very little information as to what to do and where to go next. The ship itself was ok, though lacked the grandeur of MSCs larger ships, Our cabin, an ocean view fantastica, was very nice , clean and roomy enough for the two of us, well equipped and comfortable. Dining was shocking with portions in the restaurant tiny and almost always served luke warm to cold. the second sitting at dinner was at 9 pm and the service was slow , so we ended up not leaving the dining room most nights till after 11pm. The buffet wasn't much better with zero organisation it was , to say the least chaotic and very disappointing.We had prebooked gluten free for my partner and whilst this was available, with a dedicated specialist waiter, the selection was very poor and the same every night. Entertainment was poor, As an entertainer with 30 years experience in the industry, I was shocked and surprised at the low budget fayre on offer; the theatre shows lasted about 30 minutes and where average holiday camp animation team type affairs. the lounge music was diabolical with duos using laptops and faking playing the guitar to pre recorded karaoke tracks. The only highlight was a very good South African guitar /vocalist in the pub/smokers lounge. on the whole the service was ok if a little slow. our cabin steward was excellent and the drinks waiters where great, though the dining room staff where clearly overwhelmed by the sheer weight of numbers. Our first two ports, Zadar and Kotor where great, however , Koper and Ravenna where uninteresting Read Less
