water slide & ropewalk

Embarkation in Liverpool was easy dropped off at ACC Liverpool & being in buffet within an hour. I have no idea what SW53 is on about noise, I was also on deck 13 cabin 13237 didn't hear any noise at all, in fact there is another deck of cabins above, so to hear any noise from deck 15 they must have hearing like superman, we also did not have any problems finding a seat in any of the locations or bars, there is an option VIA the MSC FOR ME APP or cabin smart TV, & the numerous smart screens around the ship to book seats in the theatre for Covid social distance reasons, IF people didn't use this then whose fault is that ?, even if unsure the crew are more than obliging.The band in the Virtuosa bar deck 6, were really good, the girl had an amazing voice, Karaoke in the TV bar above nightly, some pretty decent singers in there too, if you like that kind of thing ? ,no face covering whilst singing in there or seated but come off the stage and dance without it,then you'll walk the plank, We also opted for the pay for option for Butchers cut & Indochine, well worth the money, The market place buffet where we ate breakfast was a little confusing, as to the lay out, the hot food is in a couple of locations, if I can remember correctly starts with croissants then cakes ( sticky bun is a must ) then pancakes, bacon USA & British, skinny sausage, black pudding, bacon then the toast section then back to hot again beans,kippers then proper fat sausage, then the egg station & hash browns, onto yoghurt ,cereals, all of which is served to you, apologies for not mentioning veg or vegan, it's just that I don't look at theses options, also the drinks are served I would say to ask for PG,Typhoo,Yorkshire otherwise they give a brand that is very weak, there is also numerous flavoured & herbal teas, We ate in the Minueto restaurant of an evening food was OK, but geared around USA/Med, there is the always available & a daily roast, The other restaurants that SW53 is referring to are not pay for option, but empty because the ship only had 900 guests on from when we got on board then only 500 when turn around in Southampton, yes the doors were open for people to have a look, the choice of drinks in truly unbelievable, the theatre group were probably the best we've ever seen at sea, the comedy impressionist was very funny, 10/10 for his Frank Sinatra, you can sit without a face covering whilst seated, from what we could see, a pretty decent children's club, but being without children didn't really look properly, covid safe temperature check daily, over all a really good cruise, great cabin, ship.

Cabin Review

Big enough, balcony a bit small.
