We had a great time in the Yacht Club! Embarkation was easy once they opened up the YC tent. We were escorted to the YC by a butler, our cabin was ready, and we began our vacation immediately. The cabin was nice, bed sagged in the middle a bit and the carpet was a bit dirty. We told our butler about the bed, and he fixed as best as possible. Service in all areas of the YC was great. If we ever had a problem, we informed the proper people and things were corrected as best as possible. The food in the YC restaurant was good. The chef would accommodate most special requests that we had. Entertainment is the only thing I would rate as poor. The shows just didn't make sense and there was no flow to them. The only one worth seeing IMHO was the last night, Skywalker show. Ports were your typical eastern Caribbean ports. We did not get off in either San Juan or Nassau. We had been to these ports multiple times and did not feel the need to get off. We enjoyed St. Maarten, only wish the ship docked there longer. Having to be back on board by 1:30 was a bit of a bummer. We waited til 9:30 to disembark on the last day. Our butler escorted us to the ship disembarkation and it was a breeze. This was my first MSC cruise, they definitely have room for improvement in the US market, but I will sail with them again.

Beautiful ship
