Have just returned from a seven night with MSC and my main comments would have to be that MSC stand for MY Cruise. I read the reviews before I left and thought that ok it would not be a wow cruise but for a week it would be ok....... how wrong could I be. It seemed to be from the time we got on here we are find it yourself, we were pointed to a lift and we're left to get on with it. Cabin was adequate but had to go and ask where safe was as not in wardrobe as normal everyone else we spoke to was the same hey it was behind the mirror. Then we couldn't use it as it wasn't unlocked from previous user , mini bar was locked had to ask for it to be unlocked and then it had not been refilled, we could of had a large bill if we hadn't been there at the time.

All the meals were just warm which ever restaurant you ate in, it is an Italian cruise liner and the pasta was horrendous over cooked and sticky, coffee nasty and eggs were snotty all the time. Everything is over priced and all More drinks have a 15% service charge on them. Menu was quite bland fish seemed to be a safe bet but wasn't always cooked well.

The sea was calm but the weather was very windy, but although the ship had stabilizers on they were never used, as a member of staff said it was too costly, so this led to a lot of travellers being ill. We were not taken to agadir due to bad weather so we were told.

There was nothing to do on board during the day even when we were at sea. The evening entertainment was the same but with a different costume every night.

All in all this was a cheap cruise that became expensive because everything was extra even the sunas and steam room.

Only saving grace was cabin staff was good and they had plenty of hot water. Less

Cabin review: 8059

Cabin was small but adequate. Drawers flew open when ship rocked and rolled. Deck had a lot of ship noise
