Fantastic

As we were going to be in Copenhagen we thought we should do something from there. 3 days in Copenhagen was great and the HOHO(Hop on hop off Bus) was great to get around. The 3 day pass seemed a bit dear but ...

A good middle of the road option

I chose MSC because they were going to unique ports of call that many others were not in Northern Europe. The ports of call were Gdynia (Poland), Klapedia (Lithuania), Riga (Latvia), Tallin (Estonia), St. ...

MSC OPERA - NOT PERFECT, BUT GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY

We are British and in our sixties.  This was our 18th cruise; the 9th with MSC. We have always enjoyed the cosmopolitan experience that is indicative of this Italian line. The main national groups on this cruise ...

I have cruised with MSC before on Lirica and enjoyed it a lot. This cruise on Opera was just as good if not better in many ways. Firstly, I really do have to wonder why some people go on cruises because based on ...
