Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

We often go on different cruise companies, and we have a large experience of service on cruise ships, but we were 1st time on the Opera MSC ship

And unfortunately our vacation was very poor :(

As soon as we entered the ship, we were surprised about the small

the size of the cabin, although we had a cabin with a balcony, there were not even napkins in the cabin. On the diversity in the restaurant and the buffet, it is better not to remember. The food was from low-quality products and there was no varied choice. Its was no season fruits , except for melons and apples, there was nothing, only apricots were given on the last day

Excursions were also not on the high level

Where it was possible to stay a little longer, time was abbreviated and one day they just stole from us. We planned this trip mainly because of the city of Mykonos, so this port was canceled altogether and went to another completely un interesting city Chaina

The captain's squad referred to bad weather with a storm warning,

 although we looked on the Internet, the weather was good everywhere. It was also very economical with parking and time in another port because Chaina was cheaper port than Mykonos

The people understand that they not stupid, that on our ship there was an accident on June 2 in the city of Venice and compensation was paid to the people. But we were suffered in the capital, they were saving money on us

We decided that we would never again use the services of the company.



It was not possible to go out on the balcony and open it, because smoke stood all the time people was smoking on their balconys

The administration of the ship did not announced  to prohibit smoking on the balconies, without at all caring for the fire safety of the people and the ship itself.

And the night disco started at 9.30 and ended 1.30 -2.00

From loud speakers it was not possible to fall asleep
