MSC was not a cruise line I would ordinarily have considered, but the arrival of the new MSC Virtuosa was a temptation, especially with the added incentive of NHS discount, tips included, drinks package (for a host of reasons, I think in hindsight MSC will look back with regret on that one) and onboard credit.
The cruise - I loved it. It was a much needed holiday. And a cruise ship.
The ship - she's beautiful. Would I have wanted to cruise on her at full 6,000+ capacity? No. But I wouldn't want to cruise with that number of fellow passengers on anything to be honest.
