Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

This cruise started from Venice and started out badly - the embarkation process was a nightmare. It took us just over 2 and a half hours of standing around with little assistance from MSC personnel.

The food was not great either in our view - certainly in the main evening dining. It could have been better prepared, more spices and attention to the taste. I know the kitchens cook for 2000+ people ad it is not easy but that is their job and supposed expertise.

I think certain extras were unfair such s paying for tenders at two of the ports. Plus silly things like ice cream - we hade a fantastica package with drinks but had to pay 3 Euros extra to get an ice cream cone

Cabin O2

Very clean cabin and good housekeeping.

Good space

Port Reviews

Venice

Embarkation was chaos. A nightmare.

Mykonos

A night stop is useless in my view. What I there to do and see - other than shops and bars along the waterfront.

Ancona

We knew noting of Ancona but enjoyed walking through the old town and up to the cathedral. Plus there are ruins of a Roman amphitheater.

A delightful lunch meant that we thoroughly enjoyed Ancona - a hidden surprise.
