  3. MSC Meraviglia
This cruise was chosen for it's destination cities. Embarkation was a nightmare, it took 3 and 1/2 hours to board the ship. Early dining rushed, no coffee offered, once was offered a packet of instant coffee. One waiter for three tables total of 20 people. food in dining room cold, backed potatoes were cold and hard, salmon and chicken were dry, one tablespoon of sauce on chicken Parmesan meal, spaghetti dry and cold. Sheets not changed for 6 days. TV in our room not watchable due to constant cutting out. Ocean Cay restaurant above our room had a tile floor, noise of moving chairs and tables from 2 pm until 12 am. Left behind after Zip Line Excursion (booked this excursion through MSC) Clearbrook, Newfoundland, worker at Zip Line brought me back to the ship. Waited at customer service desk for 2 hours for extension cord and adapter for CPap. General attitude of crew had lack of concern for poor performance as nothing was ever settled. Our evening Sugar Shack Excursion was cut short due to late start, waiting an hour and a half for five people who were late returning from afternoon excursion.
