best about this cruise was the drinks package, fine dinning in the villa verde, I thought i was at an audition of Oliver ? please sir give me more, you could fit the 3 courses on a single plate, people would go up to the buffet after fine dinning as they were still hungry. best time to eat at the buffet was between 6-7 pm after this time less and less selection was available food here was fine. As said by many the theatre shows were mostly opera so ,did not use much. Cabin was fine but small shower,bar staff and cabin staff were excellent, entertainment was good and varied in the loungers.To me the biggest rip off is the bingo 25,000 euro prize if you call in 40 numbers, but your card has 25 numbers not the normal 15 this is a total RIP OFF you will never win in 40 numbers. we were a party of 6 booked direct with msc so no commission to pay, i needed to print boarding passes for return flight home went to customer services asked if they could print them for me only to be told go to library and pay 3.50 euro to print them, I believe it is the responsibility of the employer to pay staff wages and not the customer, I did not pay gratuities but gave tips to people who gave us very good service, I would go with MSC again only if the price was right

Good for the Price
