Our surprise Anniversary cake supplied by the staff in the Butcher’s Cut restaurant - a lovely touch!
Anniversary Dinner in the Butcher’s Cut restaurant.

We live in Spain and prefer to cruise from Barcelona. We had a thoroughly enjoyable cruise, despite the 3 hour embarkation process caused by the COVID 19 testing requirements. This was our first time with MSC, and having read lots of negative reviews about the dining experience, we were a little concerned about what to expect. We can now report that we could not fault the food. We mostly dined the La Reggia restaurant, apart from breakfast, and the variety and quality of the food was excellent. The service in the dining room was esceptional with very friendly and attentive waiters. We would like to give a special mention to our head maître d' Melvyn , and also Ermanto and Antonio who kept the wine flowing!

We made 6 excursions during the cruise, and despite the COVID restrictions, we enjoyed them all. The organisation was excellent.

Overall, we would highly recommend MSC and will certainly cruise with them again in the not to distant future.

Cabin Review

Cabin was excellent, spotlessly clean and the cabin steward was on the ball.
