This was our first time with MSC, we've previously sailed with RCI, Princess and P & O. Having read reviews on this site we were really apprehensive. However, we were pleasantly surprised.
Embarkation and disembarkation were extremely smooth. Our cabin was spotless & had everything we needed except tea/coffee making facilities.
All of the staff on board were excellent and extremely hard working.
The entertainment we saw was good and unlike other ships we've sailed on we never struggled to find a sunbed or somewhere to sit in the evening.
The biggest let down for us was the food. There are limited places to eat and the buffet restaurant is very small with not much choice.
The a la carte restaurant had very few choices and we often struggled to choose something from the available options.
The tender operation in Kotor was very slow and it took forever to get everyone ashore. We wasted most of the day waiting for our tender number to be called so our time in port was very short.
Overall we really enjoyed our holiday and would consider another MSC cruise if the price and itinerary were right.
