poor service, poor food, not going where expected

Hope this helps someone looking to cruise and helps them improve... the fact that the vessel could not dock at the private island - and that a poor excuse( a lie) was presented - rough seas and wind - even though ...

It takes more than a fancy new ship to be a player

I boarded MSC Meraviglia with a very open mind. Traveled to the western Caribbean on a 7nt voyage in a Fantastica balcony cabin. MSC desperately wants the revenue base and loyalty of the other major lines, ...
