After reviewing the ships design and watching videos on the making of the Meraviglia, we were intrigued. We have sailed a number of times with Celebrity, RC, Princess, Norwegian, and Disney, but we've noticed the decline in industry standards over the years and felt that the food and service was not keeping up....so why keep paying for it?
When MSC offered a GREAT deal for a two week cruise that would have cost us nearly double on Celebrity, we decided it was worth taking a chance.
However, after booking I noticed that there were some really bad reviews so I was prepared for the worse and figured 'live and learn'.
CABIN - balcony - 4.5/5 - pleasantly decorated, good use of space. Needs more storage and plugs for devices. Balcony size adequate. Service, once you told the attendant what you required, was spot on. Compares to RC and Celebrity.
