In summary: (to save you a long read)

1. The price is reasonable (especially if you had the 25% uplift when MSC cancelled bookings in 2020)

2. Brand new ship, everything works; best wifi experience on water ever. Try to learn the new ways elevators work; there are no buttons inside the cage, it's a bad idea to dart into a unit that is closing.

Cabin Review

Yacht Club Grand Suite

The cabin was a very pleasant surprise, it was spacious, very thoughtfully laid out. The two twin beds were "connected" but the joint was noticeable. The walk-in closet and two other closets are very usable; the safe needed to be upgraded to protect a PC or MAC. There is definitely enough space to support a month-long cruise if not longer. Balcony and furniture are very usable; the partition can be opened so adjoined cabins can share the balcony. The bath room was big with a generously provided benched shower and a drip line to dry the swimwears.Plenty of counter space for two or more people; all towels are embroidered with the Yacht Club insignia; two very plush bath robes were hanging in the closet. Coffee maker was easy to use, when all lights flashing red, please add water. The TV is very advanced and energy saving; the screen stays dark if no signal is detected. I use channel 4 daily to learn the position of the ship and depth of water. Channel 5 is the daily briefing by the Cruise Director and highlights of upcoming excursions.

Bedside lighting controls are convenient and thoughtful. The reading light is a very nice touch. Room temperature controls (2) are intuitive and very responsive. The sitting area has a nice sofa with cushions, a coffee table and one chair.

Hair dryer is in one of the drawers, opposite from the beds. Water (both still and sparkling) are delivered in glass bottles, bottled in Italy! MSC is the second largest freight shipping company in the world and they do not have supply chain problems.

Plenty of AC power supplies and one "wireless charging station".

The mini-frig is well-stocked and replenished daily or on request. Fine china, crystal and stainless services are nearby; 3 kinds of coffee pods, forte, regular and decaffeinated. Nice selection of tea bags.

One oddity in this room is an extra bed near the cabin door. I moved it out of the way.

Two layers of drapes, one blocks the light and one dims the lights.

Our cabin steward is Ronald and Butler Agus Made; both are from the Philippines.

Port Reviews

Cozumel

I have not been here since 2011, the Carnival terminal looked about the same, MSC has a new dock and a shopping complex directed connected to the port.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

A bit overwhelmed with two cruise ships; hopefully they will grow back to normal in due time.

Miami

The largest cruise port/terminal complex in the world is no slouch; the traffic pattern, closeness to the Miami proper and South Beach is a definite plus.

Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve

Great potential on this plot of islet, I applaud MSC for their investment to curate this paradise. This will grow, in time, into a must visit destination in the caribbeans. Hopefully the hurricanes can spare this jewel.

Ocho Rios

Quite innovative with rickshaws on the dock ferrying passengers from the gangway to the island, no set fee, only tips. A festive port area and there were passengers boarding the ship here.
