  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Fantastica Balcony Stateroom

Firstly let me give the do`s and work towards the don`ts.

Always eat in the main restaurant for all meals, it`s more relaxed and less hassle.

The staff are fantastic and will do anything for you.

Tip them personally as it goes a long way and take it off your pre paid gratuities.

We had a balcony 9086 and it was really nice and cabin lad was really good.

The ship it`s self is lovely but dated, the pool deck is the biggest i`ve seen.

Book your seat for the theatre or you`ll not get in.

Never take the tours and do your own thing as there is plenty of people on the ports to take you where you want to go.

Dubrovnik take a taxi at 13 euro or they charge 15 for the coach in.

Santorini get a taxi from the town and they will give you a tour for 100 euro, so like us we had 4 people which was only 25 euro each. Bargain!!!!

Mykonos was not seen as it arrives at night and your a good bit away from the port, waste of time, you need longer here,

Back to the ship and the poor parts.

During the days at the sea they ,dont put anyhting on down in the lower decks everything is at poolside and like us we don`t do pool side then the day becomes rather long.

The buffet restuarant is so small it`s bad, crowded and the food choice is poor, even at evenings its the worse i`ve seen.

The bar areas on top deck are busy and there is lack of staff and it was quicker going down to deck 5 and back up to deck 11 with your drinks.

The all inclusive doesn`t include bottle beer, but you can get a pint of the same beers, strange that one.

The irish bar is as much Irish as i`m welsh..

If in the main dining Adrian the head waiter couldn`t do enough for you and the other waiters were fab.

Overall i`d use MSC again but on the sinfonia.
