To anyone thinking of taking a cruise on the MSC Bellissima - Think very carefully if you value your life at sea We experienced the worst safety demonstration ever noone was taking control of the situation we were in the theatre and it was jsut a shambles no officers were taking control of the demo very poor total lack of interest. The second item of safety we saw was one of the crew cleaning the indoor pool roof without a safety lanyard he had the harness but no lanyard to conect to the latchway system just a piece of rope if the company allows this type of behaviour of its crew then god help the passengers a total lack of health and safety. The rooms are clean but very small zoe is utterly usless The food in the buffet is of poor choice fine if you like Hot dogs and burgers every lunchtime The entertainment is very poor on the decks and the theatre Overcrowding 5500 passengers on a ship built for 3500 they have squeezed the cabins together to pack everyone in the deck space gets very congested and to be honest it becomes a bun fight for everything Food,drink loungers very little staff to take drinks orders The ship is newish but badly designed not much room to relax and get peace and quite every thing is extra too the Bowling the simulators and the cirque du solie alll extra even the in room entertainment you want to watch a film it will cost you 7 euro total rip off will never go with them again never ------ buyer beware

The food in the buffet is of poor choice fine if you like Hot dogs and burgers every lunchtime

The entertainment is very poor on the decks and the theatre

Overcrowding 5500 passengers on a ship built for 3500 they have squeezed the cabins together to pack everyone in the deck space gets very congested and to be honest it becomes a bun fight for everything Food,drink loungers very little staff to take drinks orders

The ship is newish but badly designed not much room to relax and get peace and quite every thing is extra too the Bowling the simulators and the cirque du solie alll extra even the in room entertainment you want to watch a film it will cost you 7 euro total rip off will never go with them again never ------ buyer beware
