Cabin: Inside Stateroom

Ironically, MSC never sent me a post cruise survey, and I am truthfully not surprised. The first big red flag for me was the cleanliness of the ship. My stateroom was not as clean as it could have been. I had to take my sanitizing wipes to wipe down my room, as their was some sticky substance on the desk. I also noticed that the buffet table servers on this ship NEVER wipe down tables after people are done eating in preparation for the next group to sit down. They would always remove the dirty plates and cups but NEVER wiped the table down with a sanitizing substance. Cleanliness is not a priority on this ship!

The bed was like sleeping on a cot. The air conditioner in my room was also not working, so 5 out of 6 nights I woke up in a night sweat. The thermostat said 65 degrees, but it was more like 74 degrees. This was extremely frustrating, especially after being in the Cuban sun all day.

Second, the food is gross, and there is minimal variety day to day. The lasagna looked like dog food, smelled like fish food, and tasted unlike anything I ever put in my mouth. Just gross!! The food in general had no seasoning and very bland. The Margherita Pizza is really the only thing that has potential. Other than that, you will be eating pizza with Tuna or Vienna Sausages on it. And the soups come in many unique flavors, such as Peach Soup…Never had it in my life, but it was disgusting too. Even the French Fries lacked flavor. The piglet roll (never heard of it, and no it is not a pork loin) tasted like a wild boar. Bottom line, unless you want to eat a salad 3 meals a day for 6 days, you will be VERY hungry by the end of this cruise.

Just dirty with a hard bed and no working air conditioner.

Port Reviews


I was just in Cozumel in December and did a city tour shore excursion then. This time, I opted to just go shopping, and truthful had a great time. I was not interested in doing water activities or going to see any more ruins, so shopping was what I wanted to do.
