  3. MSC Orchestra
We only choose to travel with MSC and this is the first time that we would rate it lower than "very good or excellent". The entertainment quality was nowhere near as good as usual this included the nightly show and also at the different venues on the ship. Quality of food was also not up to the usual standard. The other issue was the noise around our cabin, which took them until day 3 to rectify as best they could. I would recommend NOT to stay in cabin 10080 as the plumbing and staff services access were directly behind the cabin. Ports of most interest were Montenegro Kotor and Santorini, Oui - just beautiful! We did not take the tours and explored ourselves. It is always best to research the ports before you travel as it is easy to create your own itinerary at each port. Remember that it is extremely hot during June/July.

Value for Money, but choose your cabin wisely

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom – Bella
Cabin I1 10080
The cabin backed onto a service area and had constant noise of the plumbing (toilets flushing) and doors slamming. Not much sleep was had. The staff did rectify the doors slamming, but this took 3 days before any improvement. I would recommend not to book this cabin.
