I disagree with the previous "terrible" review, because it was simply "Horrible"!!! I regretted so much going on this cruise holiday and vow to never EVER return to MSC.

Not to mention the bad, mundane food quality, the seemingly different choices of menu from Red Velvet somehow taste the same somehow... I was once seated with an Italian couple during lunch and the gentleman basically took one bite over every dish he ordered and left the rest of the food and kept shaking his head to his wife. He went on complaining to the server, but the server obviously didn't care. I don't blame him, they really do taste bad... Echoing what the previous reviewer, pasta and risotto was uncooked, and also, desserts no matter what restaurants you are in, were total disastrous!!

Expect to pay up if you want more decent daily beverages such as juice in the morning and coffee after meal. In the buffet outlet, they do offer free juice in the morning and also black coffee from a machine, but both of them taste like juice-flavored-water and coffee-flavoured-water... Even the hot water has a strange taste! It is very distasteful to FORCE travellers to pay-up by making the free choice so inedible!!
