Sail Date: Jul 2016

My elderly mother has always wanted to go on a cruise and so she finally decided to go on one and bring her two children along and her grandchildren. She chose MSC because all of her friends had persuaded her to as they described it as 'wonderful'.

When we finally got to the port in Palermo went queued up for ages to register ourselves and to get our bags sent to our rooms. As soon as we got on the cruise the staff took our pictures so they can register us and they were very welcoming! But as we finally thought we were free to roam around and explore the cruise all the members of staff wanted to sell everyone drink packages and they were very persistent.

When we finally got to our rooms we were amazed at our view - we had paid for a balcony view and it was marvellous. There were deck chairs on our balcony and I would be lying if I said I didn't spend ages relaxing on the balcony throughout my stay.
