Sail Date: Oct 2022

A poorly designed ship with no areas for adults with no children to relax. The ship is clearly built as a ‘holiday factory’ and the experience was more like Butlins or Benidorm rather than a normal cruise. MSC cram their ships full of families with no consideration for couples or families without kids. Food on board isn’t great and prepare yourself for mediocre, even in the speciality restaurants. Embarkation, emergency drills and disembarkation are not conducted in a safe manner with crowds gathering on staircases and corridors with no direction from crew nor management. For the 12 days that I had spent onboard, I felt uncomfortable, unsafe and stressed out. I was at my very happiest when disembarking at the end of the cruise. Remember the following when contemplating booking MSC or Virtuosa; you get what you pay for, if it feels too good to be true, it probably is - not all that glitters is gold.

Cabin Review

Cabin was fine but nowhere to sit apart from the beds and desk chair. Comfort cooling doesn’t work as it should.
