I chose this cruise for the itinerary. However the port times were not very long. Embarkation in Miami was smooth. The ship is gorgeous and very clean. Too many things are lacking. First of all customer service needs a huge upgrade along with the food. If you like bland food with no variety this is the cruise for you. First stop in San Juan pr we arrived at 5pm took a tour to the Bacardi distillery. That was nice but your tour is at night everything is closed downtown by 10pm. Our tour was over at 930pm so we found one restaurant open to get some Puerto Rican food. Next stop st thomas. We did the Megan's bay tour n shopping overrated. Beach is small someone had a heart attack n died right in front of us .emergency services took over 20 minutes to arrive .That was a sad day. Next stop was st Martin. Did the maho beach tour. What a rip off 500 passengers packed on a very small beach waiting for airplanes to fly over. The food was overpriced. Next stop Nassau. There's nothing to do here at the port. Stores with overpriced junk. Back to the ship. The same food was served every day at the buffet for breakfast lunch n dinner. The specialty restaurants were very good well worth extra cost. The shows were the same acrobats with different themes. Not too many activities to enjoy poolside. First and last cruise with MSC. Back to Norwegian we go.
