Sail Date: Jan 2022
Cabin: Deluxe Balcony

There were only 482 passengers on a ship that holds 5300, so most times it felt like you were on a ghost ship. We were required to undergo a covid test at the port as well as having one done prior to the cruise.The ship was beautiful and the staff friendly. Covid protocols were strictly here’d to including masks and daily temperature checks.

Food on msc is fair at best. A lot of repeat dishes, minimal beef dishes, no steak or prime rib nights.Entertainment was fair as well and the nightly showers not on the level of ncl or rccl.

Ports were the usual Cozumel, costa maya and the msc private island. They too were covid ghostly.For the price I thought it was a passable cruise at best. MSC needs to address its food and entertainment departments in order tomorrow favorably compete with the mainstream cruise lines. Their ships are stunning though.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Balcony

Standard balcony albeit a little smaller than most.
