MSC Double cruise

Read all the reviews before going and bad service+food was almost universal in them. However these I found were totally unfounded. At Venice the embarkation was rather chaotic but relatively speedy with helpful ...

SPLENDIDA

The negatives - MSC does not care about you in any way once you get on the boat. All they want is to turn you upside down and shake as much cash as they can out of you. They are only short of wearing masks and ...

Positive: The stateroom is nicely decorate and it is quite comfortable. Negative: The service is so bad that I think majority of the crew especially in the dinning room should be retrain. If you don't speak ...

MSC Maybe

The ship was very clean, staff was good, cabins better than average. The food was 60% poor, 30% ok and 10% really good. You were fine if you filled up on the pasta which was good most of the time. The seafood was ...
