This was a chance to break up a Scottish winter, which it did. The weather was great the destinations were superb.
The ship was a complete let down . The embarkation some 10hrs late due to problems with the ship. A promised free meal consisted of I roll and 1 hot drink. We had to spend the next day in port while the ship was fixed causing us to miss one destination.
The cabin was clean and comfortable.
Dining was a nightmare people scrambling for a table and food that at best was ok.
The entertainment patchy and the activities were ok if all you wanted to do was learn the samba.
Service was surly or unhelpful most of the time , the exception being the cabin staff. In the main service is poor and I would inform reception that you do not want to be charged a daily service charge . The drinks come with a 15% service charge anyway .
The ship offers a shuttle bus at most ports however these are expensive and they will not tell you about any allternatves
The port of disembarkation had a taxi and partial bus strike which had been on the news for 3 days MSC said they were unaware of it and basically it wasn't there problem .This resulted in elderly and infirm people being dumped at the port with their baggage in the rain and expected to get on with it.
If you think MSC might be for you please THINK AGAIN .
Cabin was clean and well maintained
