This was the first time my girls went on a cruise. The ship is totally amazing and we never had a dull moment. It is a port intensive cruise and this made it even better value for money. Barcelona, Rome and Marseilles are absolutely stunning. The employees on the ship are extremely friendly and helpful. We had one bad experience in the Sante Fe Tex Mex dining area, but it was resolved by the assistant director on the ship. The children loved the shows. The food was great and the Bora Bora buffet was wonderful for breakfast, but not the waistline. The entire trip was an awesome experience. It is wise to book an additional day or two in Barcelona as there is so much to do and see.

Dining was very good. Bora Bora was wonderful for breakfast. Drinks were expensive and Sante Fe Tex Mex was a disappointment, with poor staff. The Cigar Lounge have some of the best employees with exceptional service.

The room was on deck 10 - balcony and we could not complain. It would be great if the showers had glass instead of curtains.

More than enough to do especially as you are at a different port everyday.

Take an excursion in Tunis. The other ports are so easy to get around that no excursions are needed. Rome is awesome - book transfers from the port to Rome as it is almost a hour drive.

Experience of a life time. MSC is outstanding and I would recommend this cruise to anyone.
