  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom

WE didn't choose it. we went through an agent.. The inspection is on the ship MSC. In a word no.

First tip the money they charge for each day and call it a tip for the occult staff (10 Euros per person per day) is not mandatory to pay - only if you want. I asked the crew the money does not arrive to the team of cooks, reception clerks, etc., it remains in the hands of the company. The performances in the evening are insulting. They have one team once it is Italian, once operatic etc. Why insulting? One of our friends spoke with the Manicure lady and the said: it's an old-people cruise so it's not worth investing. The more difficult thing is that there is no drinking water on the ship, but mineral water that costs a considerable amount including service on each bottle. There's cold water in the dining room upstairs and that's it. For dinner at by a table, out of the pool or out of gym no cooler, bring your bottle or pay. There are no refreshments by the pool of course you cano buy, service rooms even though there is food around the clock costs money. And the most beautiful in the whole ship you can not get tooth picks bring from home. Last year we sailed to Alaska with Celebrity Millennium there is no comparison. All that MSC lacks is at Millennium Millennium, so make a calculation - if you do not need it and there are other companies to the area, travel with them.
