Embarkation was very quick and smooth. Arrived at Southampton after staying over night and parked up, quick easy system. Walk short 2 minute walk to Departure Lounge, straight through to passport control and security then walked onto the ship. Very impressed with the whole MSC embarkation system, they have it nailed.
The ship is spotless, plenty of lounges and cocktail bars to visit.
Staff are very friendly and very professional, extremely hard workers.
Cabin was a balcony cabin and again spotless. Cabin staff were always there cleaning.
MSC have lots of lifts through out the ship so no matter where you are there’s a lift nearby, very handy.
MDR food was 10/10 as were the waiting on staff.
The buffet, very similar to Royal Caribbean’s Windjammers, plenty of options, beautifully presented and hot. Button on the table to press if you wanted drinks brought to you. Buffet open until late and Pizza and other snacks available into the night.
Would I cruise with MSC again, yes, booked for Seaview in August 2019. This ship is geared towards more activities for our children. 10/10
Spotless Fantastica Balcony.
