Intensive itinerary and interesting port of calls

|

SHIP is slightly outdated. The Italian dark red and dark green color scheme looks a little tiring to me, but it might be just personal taste. I like more RCL navy blue scheme. Pool was extremely small, full of kids ...

Cruise

First time cruisers, unsure how it was going to be. The buffet restaurant had a massive choice of food, albeit on plastic tray-like plates. ( I get it, you heard quite a few crashes and broken crockery would have ...

Excellent Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

We've just returned from our 3rd and, to our surprise, best MSC cruise. We sailed Sinfonia out of Venice to Split, Santorini, Mykonos, Dubrovnik and Ancona. The ship is smallest of our 3 cruises, easy to walk around ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted to see Venice, and visit Greece. There were company reps all guiding us to the pick up coaches, which would take us to the ship. My package was supposed to be an all inclusive ...

Average Ship with Excellent Employees

Very average cruise ship in all regards.. with the exception being the shows at night, and the excellent employees. The MSC Orchestra has the feeling of being back in the 80's, with no "wow!" factor at all. ...

After 2 very rough years we needed a break away and this cruise came up at a great price so we went for it. As we always say, a bad cruise holiday is better than no holiday at all, although we wouldn't call it ...
