Whew!!! That sucked. We've been on 42 cruises and this is the bottom of the list. Never again. We'll start with the positives. Our cabin steward, Kadam, was excellent, he was always there with a smile and a pleasant greeting. One attendant at the Marketplace buffet, Laxman Singh Kanyal from India was very pleasant and went out of his way to help us.. We had o make reservations for the shows, while different this is a good idea to assure everyone get s to see the shows. The Himalayan walk and slides were fun Thats it. The ship was too big, the crew was rude, the passengers from Europe were incredibly rude. People cut in line, the crew did nothing even though it happened right in front of them Passengers reached across your plate, cut in line and were generally unfriendly. Maybe this is the norm for some European countries. The tours were consistently screwed up. Embarkation and debarkation was a sad attempt. Many passengers shared similar comments. We were walking down an aisle, quite few crew members were hanging out talking about whatever. OK no problem but they blocked about 80% of the aisle and made no attempt to move and let us pass like any normal courteous person would do. The hot water was consistently unavailable at the buftet. The food was uninspired at best. There was not one single meal I ate that I'd go back for. I could go on and on but I have better things to do. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this cruise line.

Wandered around town on our own. Always enjoy England and the folks there


Really - does MSC have any experience at this? The MSC folks on shore were useless. Our bus #6 was an hour late. Others on their own using the ship to town shuttle had to wait 2 1/2 hours to return to the ship. The MSC crew tried cutting in line saying THEY had to get back
