Chaos cruise - I never go with MSC again!

The food was always nicely presented, but not very tasteful. If you had chicken or salmon - the taste was the same! There were no free alternatives to the main restaurants. The cafeteria was complete chaos both during breakfast and lunch and many of the waiters were rude and lazy. It was only possible to get a meal due to the few nice waiters. I had to ask our waiter several times to bring the wine so we could have it to our dinner and not after, that was they same every night! I ate one night in the sushi restaurant on board and spent the next day with a food poisoning! I was not able to reach the medical center at the ship at all!

Everything on the ship was primarily taking place in Italian and usually at a level of more than 100 dB. It was then translated into Spanish, German etc. and then English was 5th on the list, which was hard to understand due to their lack of English skills and all the Itailan guests were extremly loud all the time!

Mykonoos showed out to be a very positive surprise, and Santorini is always fantastic. In Corfu we went with the shuttle bus to some old ruins that were not so nice, but the beaches weren't bad.

MSC Musica and I guess MSC in general is apparently mainly aimed at Italians! Everything was presented in Italian and 80% of the passengeres were also Italian. They were very loud and rude - one old Italian lady even tried to steal my towel! No one of the Italian staff could speak proper English, and they were very disorganised and loud all the time. The translations into English was always very short and no. 5 in the line of translations. The only well organised things was the embarkment and disembarkment - everything else was not really enjoyable!

The only staff who was nice and helpful was the persons from Asia and South America.
