Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2015

We boarded this ship with great optimism after i had been given the all clear after going down with cancer on my previous cruise on Davina maiden voyage to Miami with cancer.

MSC knew of my cancer and when we arrived at the ship we were whisked away to our cabin in minutes.

From there all down hill apart from the general staff who worked dammed hard for us.

Cabin Review

Cabin 11

The cabin was small but fine as was our steward except for the worn out pillows

Port Reviews


Good port to embark from modern and clean.

No health screening takes place ( as suggested by MSC) even though there is MERS present in the middle east.

Around 20 minutes by car from Dubai airport.

If you cannot walk far make sure you get assistance at the airport as it is a long walk to get out.
