Good Itinerary.

Unfortunately, as usual, many whinging & moaning passengers on this good value for money cruise.

Our only complaints were related to the slow embarkation in Genoa and lack of satellite TV reception while cruising the Indian Ocean.

The ships passengers were multi-national with Australians, British, Germans, Swiss, Italians, French, South Africans etc etc. Public announcements and entertainment, were therefore conducted in several languages.

The food was acceptable, and we were on the early restaurant sitting in the Borghese Restaurant. We sat on a table for eight, which slowed down our meal times.

The entertainment was average but there was a generally a good variety.

The crew & service was generally very good.

This was our first cruise with MSC and we boarded with an open mind. This cruise was very reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed all our ports of call.

The itinerary and price was the main reason for choosing this cruise which lived up to our expectations.
