Our 7-day cruise sailed from Venice-Bari-Katakolon-Santorini-Piraeus-Corfu-Kotor. This was my second time on a cruise, been on the Carnival Sensation 3yrs ago. The journey was so smooth within the 7 days, I usually am sensitive and suffers with motion sickness, but thankfully I didnt have any of those in the MSC. Large enough ship, not too big, just the right size. Food: Overall, food was fab. Im not a picky eater and I love italian and mediterranean dishes.servings in the restaurant were small enough which was completely understandable if you're on a 7-day eat all u can cruise. Good thing our waiters were nice, they allowed us to have more servings if we wanted to. Water, coffee, tea and fruit juices were free only on the 13th deck (buffet) which was a main issue for me. I could live without the teas, coffees, juice and alcohol but being 7floors away from the water dispenser drove me and my friend crazy because we are huge water drinkers and even in the restaurants, water had to be paid for which I think was a bit too much. Entertainment: Entertainment on board was good. We always looked forward to the evening shows which were all spectacular. They had live performances, dance, musicals, acrobats..u name it. There were games and raffles which I thought were good however, MSC might need to improve the quality of the prizes to encourage more people to join. For example, a free spa treatment or a perfumery set as a grand prize. Not some free MSCbackpacks and souvenirs. Service: MSC staff were all very good. They all work hard everyday from keeping our cabins clean esp. the buffet area. Everything is spotless, very clean. Staff didnt have days off even when we had finished our cruise. They were preparing for the next cruise in a few hours when we were leaving the ship. I couldnt complain with the service they offered esp our cabin man, who cleaned our cabin twice a day, was amenable to any requests we had. So for those people who had complaints about their sheets, face cloths, waiting long to get in their cabins.. Put yourselves in their shoes before complaining. Shore excursions: I must say these things are a rip off. Myself and my friend booked for two excursions, cost us €200+ euros in total which we really regret. Try exploring yourselves, ask other people that u would meet onboard if they are going on their own and book a taxi as a group or ask the reception for bus transfers (usually cheaper). Museum entrances are cheap enough and you have your own time rather thatn going to these excursions as a group. Overall, I would say we would go back and do another cruise in future. The cruise itself was cheap enough, and it was an enjoyable journey altogether. Read Less
