- very convenient fly&cruise package: MSC took care of our suitcase which was delivered straight to our cabin without the need to pick it up from the belt at the airport and carry it on the bus. This is the main reason we keep cruising MSC.
- great itinerary with long port days abd extensive excursion programme
Our cabin was quite comfortable and reasonably soundproofed.
Great Bay is very convenient. It is a 10 minutes walk from the ship (no need to spend 7 dollars for the ferry!). The beach is long and quite, although it is not free as it used to be years ago. We rented two loungers and an umbrella for 10 dollars, it was not expensive anyway.
we took a collective taxi to the public beach (15 dollars return ticket). The beach is at the eastern end of Bayahibe, near the Dream resort. It was quite long and wide but full of unauthorised boats leaving for Saona Island.
