  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Fantastica Balcony Stateroom

Chose this cruise to fill some time before another cruise. You could not beat the price. We went in to the experience very natural after reading the mixed reviews. To our surprise it turned out to be one of the best experiences of our many cruises. The staff worked very hard to please. Very pleasant. We only noticed a lack of service at lunch in the main dining room. The staff admitted this was their first week on the ship. They were training. Understand training is needed and we all were new at a job. Our room steward, room 14201 was very professional and timely. Our main dining waiter, Louis Robert Manique was great. Food was great. Lots of lamb. Not hot like americans like but warm. Shows were dancing every night with a theme and vocals. Dancers were outstanding. Vocals were ok. Not everyone can sound like Elvis. They worked very hard and it showed. Embarkation and debarking was very fast. Walk on and off. No wait. Upon returning to the ship there was a long wait at one port. Security held up the return. The room is smaller along with the balcony. Ok for two persons. To our surprise the room 14201 had a bath tub. Made the bath very small. This would be an issue for some one with difficulty getting in a tub. From the floor of the tub to ceiling was 6ft. If you were tall this could be an issue. I looked into few rooms on the 14th floor and they had tubs. The seas were rough this week and on the 14th floor it rocked.

Enjoyed the chocolatiers make their chocolates.

Thanks to our cruise director, he was great. His special personal story and concert were great.

In a whole it is a beautiful ship and the staff works hard. Will consider MSC over other lines for our next cruise.

Thanks to MSC for putting a great cruise critic meet and greet. The drinks and snacks were outstanding.
