We chose this cruise having never been to South America before. The itinerary suited us i.e. Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil together also the dates.
This was our 7th cruise and first time with MSC. Despite reading some poor reviews because of the above we decided to book.
We flew via Heathrow to Buenos Aires on an 18 year old 777 with British Airways BRUTAL It took 2 hours to clear B.A. airport as all the flights from Europe and many from North America arrive around 8 in the morning. Spent one night in a small boutique type hotel in BA which was very good.
Nothing special but very clean.
Not MSCs fault but could not visit due to a strom
