  3. MSC Bellissima
Boarding rather good and smooth. First contact with on board photographers: bit agressive and pushy. First vieuw of the ship: bling/bling, modern, cold feeling, huge.... few places to take a drink, to sit down and relax (in case of winter or bad weather). Cabin (balcony) clean. Size: a little bit small and cramped. TV very good with BVN for the dutch speaking. 'ZOE' is like 'SIRI'... only standard questions you can find on the internet. Balcony nice with 2 chairs and a little stool. Bathroom small with pump showergell and shampoo. No paper tissues. Shower good with nice hot water. Market place very crowdy but with a little effort always a place to sit down. Choice for breakfast good, lunch rather poor. Little bell on the table to call a waiter. Plastic glasses and plates (!!) brrrr. Dining in Cerisier was rather good, not great. Lots of tables close to each other. Very noisy. Real plates and glasses this time. Simple dishes. Had the eays drinks package incluced in our cruise price. What a joke! You get to pick everything below 6Euro: a few cocktails with standard alcohols, alcohol free cocktails, Heineken, 2 white, 1 rosé, 2 prosecco's and 2 red wines. Everything else you must pay! A drink of 6.50Euro: pay the total amount!! So not only the 0.50Euro above your 6Euro limit. RIDICULOUS! And a lots of their drinks are priced.... 6.50Euro. MSC pushes you in the direction of an upgrade... The shopping area is nice to wander around. Lots of speciality restaurants with zero people in them... a waste of nice places to sit and enjoy the cruise. Cirque du soleil is good, not like a big production but it was OK. Drinks were awful. Area with glides and waterfun looks very nice for good weather conditions. Shall we travel with MSC again? In Yacht Club probably, in other cabins... don't think so.

First time MSC and perhaps last time....
