For our first experience of a cruise together, we were very impressed with every aspect, but would particularly like to comment on the superb standard of cleanliness on board ship.

The staff were both friendly and efficient.

We thought the food was excellent. There was plenty of variety and choice at each mealtime. The buffets and Gala Nights looked spectacular, even though we were too full to even try any, having eaten a 4-course meal for dinner at 9 o clock. It is amazing just how many people manage to STUFF themselves to the limit.

The Stateroom was both pleasant, welcoming and comfortable. We would choose a balcony next time though.

The shows were very good, although they did not last that long. We found that on some evenings it was very difficult to find a seat, especially after the second sitting dinner.

We did not participate with the activities, but enjoyed watching some of them.

We did not experience the excursions offered, but heard they were quite good.

Our overall experience was very good and we would not hesitate in recommending an MSC cruise to anyone.
