We had cruised 4 previous times with Norwegian Cruise Lines and had never tried another, so this review will really be about comparing NCL to what we experienced with MSC and this ship. WIll compare each part.
1. Price- We took my mother as a solo passenger and it was $800 cheaper for her to get a balcony cruise on MSC compared to NCL, and it was also about $500 cheaper for us as a couple for a balcony room. MSC a better price, no doubt.
2. Embarkment- Smooth as can be. Our time was supposed to be 12:30 and we were on a bit before. As good or better than NCL experience in the past. No hiccups.
a bit smaller, but ok.
the MSC Marine Reserve is really awesome
