MSC Opera Cruise Review by Babs5too

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom

We chose this cruise as it sailed from Havana and we disembarked in our home province of Alicante so we got to see Havana and the Caribbean with no jet lag!

The cabin (inside fantastica) was spacious and airy due to the clever use of mirrors. Plenty of wardrobe space and room to move around.

The entertainment team were great. Not to everyone’s taste I get that but the ship was big enough to avoid them if it’s not your thing.

We were just observers most of the time but they were very enthusiastic and obviously enjoyed what they were doing which was infectious.

The ship is dated especially with regard to the technology available but the ship is now in dock for an upgrade.

All the personnel were very friendly and helpful.

My only disappointment was the limited choice and sometimes the quality of the food. Also, due to translation issues you were never quite sure what you were going to get!

That said,wonderful fresh pasta and pizza were always available, unfortunately salad consisted of lettuce and not much else!

The bars all had different genres of music, something to suit most people and there was never really a scramble for seats or even sun beds as long as other passengers were being sensible and considerate.

We started off with my husband saying he thought this would be our last cruise and finished it looking forward to booking another one soon.
