I chose this cruise for our 30 th wedding anniversary, i Read some poor reviews about msc before we travelled and I thought it was people being fussy but now I understand how they felt.The ship is obviously new and stunning the food and drink were OK we had the premium plus drinks package but it was not set up when we boarded.Therefore it was disappointing to be told that we had to pay for the minibar in our room even soft drinks and water also no tea or coffee facilities in our rooms.No snacks at all at any of outside pools or bars even a tiny tub of ice cream was €4.50.The entertainment in the evening was disappointing we had the early dinner sitting at 6.30 so we could only make the 9 o'clock shows in the theatre they were only half an hour long and a lot of them had a charge of €17 per person.Also a member of msc staff told us that the shore excursions were ramped up by 100% as the ship was only 50% full.

Cabin Review

The cabin was OK disappointing there was no tea or coffee facilities ,we had the had the premium plus drinks package but we had to pay for water and anything from the minibar in our cabin.
