The ship is gorgeous and easy to get around but there were several things wrong, First, the cabin was tiny, the bed so narrow that I was seriously worried about falling out (and I am a relatively small person) and MSC does not provide kleenex in the cabins or public bathrooms.

The embarkation procedure was a complete disaster beginning with the long wait to go throught security , the disasterous check in and then the ridiculously long line to board the ship. Next was ...
