Second time on this ship. Easy embarkation and disembarkation. Had dinner in the Ipanema dining room.....our waiter was very personable and food was always hot when served . Cabin....very little closet space - would like to have more drawers or shelves. Love the Swarovski embedded stairways!!!! Pool area gets very crowded when at sea...........get there early to get your lounge chair! Bar service was slow at all bars......could have used more bartenders. Had the lowest internet/wifi package and service was spotty at times. Take he Behind the Ship Tour offered later in the week....very interesting and informative. Onboard shops were OK' Would book another MSC cruise in the future.....maybe a Mediterranean - depending on cost/amenities. Onboard photographers were good with varied scenes and poses. Pool on Deck 16 had lots of activities going on during the day for the kids and families,,,and good place to meet others. All said and done I would recommend MSC cruises to other friends/travelers.

Show are excellent....reserve your space first day onboard!
