  3. MSC Seaview
First cruise, beautiful ship, spotless, staff mostly friendly with a few exceptions. Food ok, good buffet selection when you manage to battle your way through. Way too many children running around, felt like a holiday camp on water! The specialty restaurants appear to be almost empty.. they are very expensive. Cabin was very comfortable but being on deck 15, we were directly underneath the Ocean View buffet so from 07.30 and continuing all day, very loud noise from chairs scraping on the floor and thumping of people walking around. Requested to move but abruptly told that there was nothing else available. This noise made it impossible to enjoy the balcony also. Found the entertainment lacking except for the theatre shows which were very professional. Not enough adult only areas. The over 18's bar was closed for private functions on at least 3 occasions. If we had a quieter cabin and less children on board we may have had a different opinion but disembarked feeling like we needed a holiday to recover

Never again

Cabin Review

Fantastica Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B2 15163
Very clean and extremely comfortable bed but unfortunately the noise made it difficult to enjoy.
Had expected to be able to sit on the balcony and relax but this was impossible
