Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Aurea Balcony Stateroom

Worst cruise experience ever. Have cruised several times on a number of cruise lines and would not recommend MSC at all. Service was poor, food was lousy - same thing every day and not that good. Ship was full of international travellers so you had to hear all announcements in about 4 languages - even interrupted shows at night for announcements.

Aurea - had some nice things to buying this package --- bigger balcony if you booked on deck 9. Separate sunbathing area on 19. Use of Spa - massage. Big draw back - bar on Deck 19 for Aureau was never opened.... Then when it said it would open at 1pm -- the bartenders told us no - they weren't opening til 1:30.

Casino is small. Entertainment is ok -- Michael Jackson show was the best. Evening activities were lacking compared to other ships.
