Not a Luxury experience in anyway!

We were guided by our Cruise company to book this one as it fitted the dates and they said it was a good itinerary and lovely ship. The departure city, Venice is breath taking and it is worth spending time ...

Decent ship held back by terrible service

Have you ever been to a buffet where the labels are in place, promising tasty treats and then you find that all the food is already gone? That is how this MSC cruise felt in most respects. There is definitely ...

Poorly managed cruise

The ship is very nice and the staff (waiters, bartenders, stewards) were all great, but the ship is managed terribly. Embarkation was bad and we got no direction where to go other than a security guard yelling at me ...

This 1 week cruise from Venice had a good itinerary. We booked a suite because the price was low and included the liquor and soft drink packages. We had the Aurea package which included "many specialty ...
