Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Bella Balcony Stateroom

It could have been so good, but the embarkation was the worse I have ever had to endure. Easy for me as I was not as old as some of the travellers who were made to stand for over 4 hours in the port whilst they embarked. No information, no water, shame on you MSC.

Once aboard the ship all was good. The cabin beautifully adequate with good service from the attendant.

Food was good and the server was a delight. Breakfast organisation was another story though. Poorly organised and haphazard, who knew what you would end up with despite your order. The Buffet was a free for all, as these things often are, not enough seating and tables left dirty for too long.

Cabin Review

Bella Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

The cabin was the highlight of the trip. Lovely and clean, problems with the wardrobe and lack of shelf space, but all in all a great size cabin kept beautifully clean.
