Real cruise cost is MORE EXPENSIVE than cruise fare shown on MSC website: EXTRA hidden Service SURcharge acknowledged in cruise booklet at check-in, NOT SHOWN on MSC website. Total cost = Cruise fare + hidden Service SURcharge of 7 euros/pax/night. For example: for 7 nights, 2 persons: Cruise fare + 98 euros (7 euros x 7 x 2 pers.). Too much time spent at sea. Except Athens, Santorini and Montenegro, there is not much worth seeing at the rest of the destinations. We book an exterior, Ocean view, cabin on deck 9: - Corridor and cabin sting ammonia - Quality of the cabin is equivalent to a 3 stars hotel room - The bathroom starts rusting - Many machine oil or grease stains on bed sheets and towels Buffet: self-service, cafeteria quality cooking. Restaurant La Pergola = cafeteria+ (plus) quality cooking + good service. Wi-Fi Internet: available only on deck 5. Buy 10 euros for 60 minutes BUT surf the web for about 15 minutes and... FINISH! NO MORE air time! Buy new credit! Inefficient Disembarkation briefing and a greedy Reception staff incapable of using there own MSC Terminal map to guide or Help passengers in need of catching the Venice ATVO shuttle Bus to Marco Polo Airport. Venice ATVO shuttle buses (5 euros) leave for Marco Polo airport every 1/2 hour. While ONLY ONE trip of MSC shuttle buses to Airport at triple cost (15 euros), scheduled to arrive at Marco Polo 11:00 - 11:30 for flights up to 18:00 (5-6 hours waiting time). Pay expensive! Good luck, and be patient!

Embellishing publicity to wrap cover a poor content cruise.
