We were drawn to book this cruise due to cruise ports that were new to us and that it included drinks! Previous cruises have been with Royal Carribean, Celebrity and NCL. It was great value! We thought the cruise cabins were good. Bathrooms clean. Helpful room attendant. New towels daily. Dinner in the main dining room was ok. Food was not great but there was always something you could eat. It was comparable to NCL. Steak was served with large chunks of fat still attached, shrimp pasta had 2 small shrimp and shrimp cocktail were 4 tiny shrimp that looked like it was freezer burnt. Buffet was good. Excellent variety of food for all cultures. Pizza was amazing! The staff was quick to clear dishes. Gelato and coffee were amazing! Bar service- in all bars including the pool were poor and not the fault of the bar tenders. MSC did not staff the bars according to demand. The staff tried their best to serve everyone in a timely fashion but unfortunately they did not have enough man power! They had some really good drink options outside of the standard menu. Pool chair hogs- happens everywhere but nothing was really done to prevent it but it could be related to the understaffing problems. Night shows- entertaining but very different from other cruise ships. Had a little bit of everything in every show. They have to accommodate their shows for many different languages.

Good
