“…The ship was very clean and facilities were good. The food was perhaps the weakest point. Sometimes a little bland, dry or overcooked. However, very easy to change your choice or request more very good atmosphere in the dining room…”
– Cruise Critic
“…We have sailed with MSC before and it is possible to secure very good value for money by taking up special offers when they arise. In this case we took up a free balcony cabin upgrade offer. We took our three-year-old son with us and he slept on a convertible sofa bed that proved to be very comfortable. The cabin was quite spacious and we did not need to use a bunk bed. The standard of cleanliness maintained by the cabin service staff was very good…”
