Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

This was my second time on an msc ship. Did not have the best experience last time, so I had low expectations this time.

This was a whole other experience however. Embarcation was smooth and easy. I found the staff to be much more friendly this time. Everyone we met were very helpful and positive.

Food in the main dinig room was good, but again my travel partner felt the portions were too smal, so we used the buffet most nights. This time the food was actually warm in the buffet so that was good.
