Our overall experience was bad. The only good thing of this cruise is the itinerary and the cabins (we took balcony cabins on the uppermost floor). Service was VERY poor, particularly from the European crew members. Latin Americans were much more friendly. The food and table service was the worst of all the cruises I have ever taken. This was the poorest point of this cruise. Eating times were very short and food quality was very low. Dinner times extended over periods of 1.5 hrs (late seating) due to poor service-logistics. At some points (specially tea-time) lines were so long, the buffet closed before your turn, and the crew simply removed the platters in front of your face. This was the best part of this cruise. My stateroom (1212 and 1214) were quite large, LCD TV, couch, queen size bed and balcony with chairs and a table (we used to play cards). Room service has charge and not even the water is free. In fact, they only allow you to get free drinking water at meal time. Did not take part of any, but people seemed to enjoy them much. My first and last cruise with MSC
