Sail Date: Aug 2014

This was the first cruise we had ever been on. Was very wary but was absolutely thrilled with every aspect of the cruise. Staff were amazing and always smiling and ready to help where needed. Food was out of this world, so much choice but something for everyone at any time of day or night. The ship itself was an absolute dream. Never seen so much opulence everywhere we went. We joined in with the crafts which were available when ship was at sea, there was dancing lessons and cookery demos as well. Plus lots of other activities for those who wished to participate. The theatre was quite good, the downside being that everything had to be spoken in 5 languages, so lost a bit of continuity along the way. The trips we chose to go on we're very well organised and we felt very safe with the couriers. Cabins were very good, would have liked tea making facilities in the cabin, but otherwise no complaints.

We couldn't book for this year as MSC were not sailing from Southampton in 2015. Hope they will in 2016 as can't wait to book with MSC again.

Overall. A truly memorable cruise, which has got us hooked.
