This ship cannot handle its own crowds

I would avoid this ship. It is not large or well-staffed enough to handle its own crowd of customers. The Mediterranean port cities are excellent, on the other hand! I was on the Meraviglia during its second week ...

Shame on Msc

We have travelled on various Msc ships, and really enjoyed the experience. This is their first venture into large ships, and they haven't got it right. The buffet area seating increases in size, but the service ...
