Chose this cruise for some sunshine good food and sight seeing. Long queues every where ie checking in. Reception always had a queue Boat was clean Cabin ok but cabin boy over worked and never reached our cabin till late afternoon. Food disappointing. Deserts poor compared to other companies Waiters were great Continually being asked to take drinks package even through we had, to go to speciality restaurants , shows that u had to pay more to go to and other offers not interested in. Even in restaurant being asked to go for the special which cost u more. Pools packed with no space between sun beds. Other passengers put towels on beds early morning. Although stated that would be removed if not occupied would be removed. Excursions good but very expensive. On valentine night asked to buy drinks. Overall ok but felt pestered to spend more money. Expensive to start with but continually asking to buy more. Some passengers good but a lot of rude people with no manners. Felt at times survival of the fittest. This was my first cruise with MSc and unlikely to go with them again
