Booking a suite gives one an easy onboard pass. After seeing the ques and listening to people tell how long they stood in ques i was glad of the easy onboard. From arrival to boarding took all of 20minutes. Our previous cruise to this had been on MSC Musica and although the ships are almost identical the Musica was in better shape. Room was excellent. i would prefer a full shower rather than a shower in the bath as i thought this was a bit of a safety issue on a ship. Room size and balcony size were perfect. A balcony was was done whilst we were out on day 2 and i would have expected the balcony to have been dried, which it wasn't We opted to eat in the restaurant, rather than on the 13th floor during meal times.This was due to seating as well as noise. Although buffet at lunch time is a better option on the 13th floor. Entertainment was good, we had a comedian on our 2nd night which was great. Deck entertainment kept people busy with a good balance of things to do. Our trip to the island was very enjoyable, transport to and from the island was well organised, A trip to Inchana is well worth the extra cost.
