A little about us: my husband & I are 45-50 yrs old. We have cruised a total of 34 cruises on RCCL, Celebrity, Princess, Norwegian (2) & Carnival (2).
This was our 4th European cruise but our 1st MSC cruise.
The ship is very pretty. The dome area in the center of the ship is a real feature. I hope MSC utilizes it in many other ways.The Stairs are beautiful. The dining rooms could have more flare. But the area outside the dining room is very nice.
I love Rome, we did a private tour thru our hotel Rome Marriott Park Hotel.
BCN is always great. There was a partial taxi strike so, you had to figure out what you were doing & make sure you had plenty of time to get back to the ship.
We did the hop on hop off. We had been here before & kinda knew what we wanted to see. Malta is a great place.
We took an MSC offered shuttle To the city center that cost 17 euro per person. It was a very nice market there with fruits, veggies, clothing, stores, restaurants & a cathedral.
