  3. MSC Bellissima
Mediterranean Itinerary. Was it perfect, no. Did we have a nice time, yes ! First time on MSC and it's definitely different than Celebrity or Royal. Easy check in and disembark. You won't see the cruise director much and the engagement activities are very limited. The entertainment for most of the week were the on board singers/dancers. There were "ok". The rock show was very good. The others; not so much. We had superior service and attention in the dining room - the best of any cruise I have been on. The waiter struggled a bit with english and seemed a little less experienced than on other cruises, but his willingness to serve and satifsy was 150%. We had regular visits from managment staff to ensure we were enjoying everything. Food was very good. Desserts were excellent ! The ship was clean and spacious. The chocolate/coffee bar was a bit of a miss for me. The coffee isn't included in any package(disappointing) but coffee is at almost every bar. No take away cups/lids. If you enjoy walking around with a coffee (i think it's an american thing) you could bring an insulated reusable cup with you. We didn't bring kids, but the kids club did look amazing and you could tell the kids loved it. Our balcony cabin was spacious and very comfortable. Lots of elevators and we didn't wait long even on busy times during the day. Americans were only about 10% of the passengers. Overall it was a very good experience. The ports were beautiful and the price with MSC was so reasonable.

We received great service !
