A resting holiday

This was our fourth cruise and it was very disappointing. We went on the Sinfonia in 2011 and it was awesome, not crowded, no queue's, there was always place to relax on the top deck. This time it was over crowded ...

First & Last

What I liked on MSC was the entertainment (although there were not a lot of costume changes in the shows) the variety was nice. It was eclectic and circus-like. My favorite was the guy who did flips in the air and ...
