Additional details

Sail Date: May 2022
Filthy urine stained duvet
Bed bug bites
Specialty restaurant steak we had to pay extra for! Disgusting and inedible.

The food was beyond AWFUL - by far the worst on any cruise I’ve ever been on. There was very little choice on the menus compared to Princess cruises which we are used to. MSC need to up their game big time. The food in the MDR’s was lukewarm and just slapped on the plate. There was no attempt at presentation whatsoever. We felt like we were eating in a canteen.

I woke up plastered in bed bug bites so I checked inside the duvet cover. Big mistake…it was absolutely FILTHY (saturated in old urine stains)

We caught covid on the ship which wasn’t in the least surprising considering there were kids running around coughing and sneezing everywhere. We only booked this cruise as we were assured ALL passengers had to be fully vaccinated. Unfortunately we were lied to.

Cabin Review

Booked a deluxe balcony but ended up with a very obstructed view. We were eventually moved but not until we had wasted a whole day of our cruise
