Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

I booked this cruise 3 days before the virus hysteria started. I chose it because it was very cheap (about 40 euro person/day) with an Ok itinerary.

It turned out to be probably the best and definitely the most luxurious cruise in my life.

First of all, because of the virus MSC completely remade the first half of the cruise, making the itinerary much better than I initially booked. Instead of the freezing and wet Shanghai, Okinawa and Hong Kong, which were cancelled, MSC moved the embarkation to Singapore and added Langkawi, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Saigon (that's two more ports than the original route!), and all the itinerary was in the perfect tropical weather! The itinerary became MILES better.

Balcony Stateroom

A BALCONY! Quiet, spacious, in a perfect location, a perfect view, a bit of wear and tear but it doesn't spoil the experience at all.
