MSC Grandiosa - Smart ship but too busy

This was our second experience of MSC following a short cruise only a few days earlier on the Presiosa. Upon embarkation we were assaulted by 'in your face' crew members on a mission to sell you 'things', sadly ...

More similarities with a limited-stops train than a cruise

I had a week to fill in over the Christmas period, and I thought that a week-long cruise would be a good and convenient option. I boarded and disembarked MSC Grandiosa in Genoa, and thought that I would be visiting ...
