An outstanding cruise with some of the most pleasant and professional crew that we have ever had the pleasure to cruise with. We found the service across all venues to be outstanding. Entertainment was not of the same quality as some of the broadway style shows on NCL or RCL. However the quantity was much higher, with 7 different shows in the main theater during our 7 night cruise. This was more than enough to keep us entertained and looking forward to the next night. Also a 15 piece orchestra performed nightly musical numbers that equaled the quality of the shows in the main theater.
The itinerary was fantastic, visiting 3 Norwegian ports...with one exception. A fourth stop is at the German port of Kiel. We found Kiel to be a very depressing, with garbage and graffiti covering the town. Easily the least attractive European city that we have ever visited. If your itinerary includes this port we would recommend either staying on the ship or taking a train from the very convenient, central station to more attractive destinations further into Germany.
I would like to thank the following MSC employees who made our cruise one to remember: Chester (dinning room), Karen (sommelier), Bryan (lounge) and Nithin (lounge). Thank You!! Based on the outstanding service you provided, we have already booked our next MSC cruise.
