For personal reasons we were forced to travel during the main holiday season this time. This resulted in some negative experiences, as the ship was fully booked as well as full with many families and children. Unfortunately today's parents seem to neglect the education and good behaviour very much.

But to the journey. We chose this route because we did not know of any other port except Genoa.

Ship: We already knew in advance that the MSC Opera is an older ship in the fleet and was extended in 2015. Unfortunately, the public areas seem to have been disregarded during the extension. After several voyages on other MSC ships we were disappointed by the public areas.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B2

Cabin: The cabin was MSC standard and thus perfectly in order. Criticism points were however the connecting door, which did not dampen the noise of the neighbouring cabin enough, and the built-in furniture. The hinges of the cabinets were protruding or torn out.

Port Reviews

Genoa

pre-booked parking: arriving at the port - luggage is taken out of the car - keys and vehicle are handed over to the parking service - finished... Check-in and boarding: within 20 minutes from the car park already in the cabin... faster is hardly possible...
