We did three cruises with MSC: Our first, only and last. Our ticket said food and drinks included. Yes if you "dined" at the chaotic Bistro on deck 14, and kept to iced water and coffee out of a bucket. Our balcony cabin had no sea-view as the "glass" fence to the ocean was a 1 inch steel-plate. Ocean-view only if standing up. We dined at our assigned restaurant and table, and were presented with menu with no prices -and next day we could see we had been charged with 60 EUR for a mediocre dinner. The ship docks between 3 and 10 miles off the cities, except in Palermo, and they charge you 10-15 EUR for the shuttle-bus. Any decent hotel offers that for free, i.e. included in the price of the room. We had the pleasure of many Italian families with children, and to say they are noisy is an understatement. In the pool-area talking was impossible, shouting was the only means of communication. The ship itself was fine, meticulously clean and very stylish, and the navigators showed some remarkable ship-handling when entering and leaving ports, very impressive from an ex-pro. One night we had a force-9 gale directly on the side, and rolling was maximum 2 degrees. Ship is OK, the rest is not. Read Less

Cagilairi to Genoa. After a busy three months in Europe the cruise was chosen as a great way to recharge. I picked this particular cruise for the Pompeii tour from Naples. but was not impressed with the shore excursion. a four hour tour but only just over an hour in the site. Easiest check in i have ever done on a cruise. There were only 100 or so people checking in. Disembarkation was more detailed as the cruise started its 7 day cruise here so more passengers were disembarking. This was not my first MSC cruise so the repeating of everything in five languages was not a bother to me. But if it is your first cruise with them just be prepared that everything is said in at least five languages. Meals were good. pizza fantastic. I prepurchased the drinks package and that all ran smoothly. I would definitely sail with MSC cruises again. Read Less

Please do not take this cruise. My family went on this cruise and while there were some positive experiences with the destinations we visited, breakfast buffet and turndown service there were to many things negative. The customer service on the ship was just ridiculous, elevators became unusable due to there limited capacity and the shops overcrowdedness, the pools on the ship were small and packed without a shallow end. Everything costs extra, even a small little cone of gelato was several euros. Not a nice cruise, unless you get your room for a very reduced rate don’t waiste your time money or sanity. I made a formal complaint with MSC and they never replied. I also reported our dissatisfaction to Expedia and they too did not reply. The service rep who took care of our rooms twice a day was attentive and very thorough and for that I am thankful Read Less
