Please read all of the reviews about MSC Orchestra very carefully because for the most part they are true as far as: *Great value for an international cruise *Most patrons on the ship do not speak English as a first language (never found it to be a problem) *You do have to pay for water in the dining room and coffee is not included except in the buffet *Dining options are few-buffet and dining room but we did not find the meals bad-always great pasta options and appetizers. *Entertainment is pretty non-existent *The pool area is very crowded and small I would suggest to go on this cruise if you: *Would like to see beautiful ports that no other cruise line seemed to go to (Malaga, Alicante, Gibraltar, Genoa) *Are not expecting/wanting to spend too much time on the ship *Do not mind being one of the only English speakers (although ALL of the staff spoke very well) *Would like a very budget friendly international cruise (our 8night balcony room cruise cost only $899/person) Read Less

Time and date right for our 3 week Italian holiday. We have been cruising for years on Princess(platinum), H.A., and Celebrity. Ship was extremely clean, food best we have ever had, service very good, balcony cabin spacious with good service. I would rate this cruise as one of the better ones. Ports and organized tours, excellent. We visited La Spezia (Cinque Terre), Genoa (Portofino), Cannes, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Ajaccio (Corsica. Now the issues, smoking on balconies not regulated butts thrown overboard, no one seemed concerned when reported, passengers rude, could be both a culture and language issue being the ship was full of German, Dutch, Finish, Norwegian, American, Canadian, Italian, and Asian with the majority not bilingual. Being an Italian ship be prepared for a lot of misbehaving children and baby strollers, the ship has a children's program from baby to senior teen which seems to work except for under 3 yrs which go with parents by their choice to the dining room and have meltdowns. Would we go with this line again, maybe if they expanded to North America. Read Less
