We had a great time on the Opera. Three of us had an inside room, which was perfect for us, since we were never there anyway. It was big enough for us three and had everything we needed. Well, an iron would have been cool for the formal nights, but we managed. We spent most of the time on the pool deck, enjoying the sun and the many random activities the Entertainment Crew (Animation Activities Staff) had in store for us. Those guys were awesome. Food was incredible and very very good. We loved the fact that they have a pizzeria onboard that serves pizza all afternoon. The ports were all very nice. We booked excursions at Cozumel and Roatan, explored Grand Cayman and Key West ourselves. I can recommend the Catamaran/Snorkeling/Beach excursion at Cozumel -it was great fun but one thing: The snorkeling site wasn't too impressive although that didn't take away from the experience.
The ship itself is very quiet and hardly moved at all in cruise. In our room, we heard nothing that would prevent a peaceful sleep.
We were on spring break and we were a little disappointed that 98% of the guests were 30+ but again that wasn't anything that took away from the fun of the cruise. I'm sure next year when more people know about MSC it'll change.
