  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

I am currently on a cruise on the msc musica out of Venice.

Ship is very clean crew smart and friendly, entertainment almost the same each night but good quality.

My main complaint is the buffet breakfast. The food is plentiful, looks appetising but is COLD. Trays of fresh food,fried eggs, sausages, bacon, mushrooms etc are brought from the kitchen COLD. They are placed on hot plates to warm. When they are just about warmed up they are removed and a fresh tray is brought out. Same thing.

How a buffet can be so disastrous I cannot imagine.

The coffe from urn is tasteless, the hot water used for tea is only Luke warm and will not infuse the tea bag.

We have resorted to having breakfast inside in the dining room where food is both hot and tasty. It can be done so why not in the buffet?

We have enjoyed our cruise but we enjoy having a relaxing breakfast outdoors weather permitting and the cold food in the buffet has stopped us doing that.

The food in the main dining room is tasty but not exceptional.

Ports of call ok, most of them close to dock so that was good.

Entertainment shows good but VERY samey, by the end of the cruise you longed for someone else to be in show.

Staff (except buffet ) very good and helpful. Ship clean, pool area has plenty of sunbeds.

Getting on and off ship took a long time but was efficient.

Overall a nice cruise, with a few niggles, our first with MSC
