The embarcation went smooth and quick, notwithstanding the COVID control. We had a cabin on deck 15, aurea experience. The cabin is well equiped. The bathroom was very small. Once on board you’re attacked by personnel trying to sell the ‘spéciality restaurants. It is sometimes difficult to understand the official announcements since they sprak far to quick. As always on these big Ships the buffet experience is terrible . Far to many people for to little Seats and very noisy. It has to be said that the choice of food at the buffet is excellent. There is a separate restaurant for aurea experience guests , the manhattan. It looks like an ennobled cantina with no Windows at all. It takes you about Twenty five minutes between start and end of dinner, not pleasant at all. All in all the personnel is very friendly and they do their best to satisfy the customer.
Due to COVID we were forced to use the ship’s Excursions. In the publicity MSC announced they would not leave early. First excursion we choose started at 08.15 AM. !!! When ordered, departure times for
Excursions was nog announced !
Nice cabin with large terrace. Bathroom
