Oh my, this may cause me to lose part of the group.

There is no such thing as a bad cruise. Some are just better than others. You will have a good time if that is what you are looking for.

Welcome to cruise-chat briangdg and starz
My past experience with Costa and MSC cruises is that the food is too salty for me. Of course that is my preference, but just to let you know in case you feel it necessary to ask your waiter to have the chef take it light on the salt.
I'm sure you'll have a great time, especially since this is your first cruise starz. You have nothing to compare it with yet .
Have fun, relax and enjoy.
Sandy p

Do others agree with this poor rating of MSC's food? Is the lack of availability for several hours normal?
Remembering my two 12-days MSC cruises I think to a lot of things, but absolutely not to a lack of food.
So do my family and friends.
Yes, Musica and Orchestra don't supply a 24/24 free food & beverage service: but frankly we hadn't any problem.
Probably it's the cruise line policy: in the theater, e.g., there aren't tables and you're NOT ALLOWED to drink or eat anything.

Anyway I can understand people are different, and so their impressions.
In February-March 2008 were aboard Orchestra many American cruisers. The ones I talked to (35-70 y.o from Texas, Nevada, Arizona) showed their appreciation and said they'd book again.

However, I'm looking forward to check out the "American Cruising Taste" I've read about in so many posts ... Fort Lauderdale here I come !


P.S. I posted my MSC reviews in April 2007 (Musica) and March 2008 (Orchestra), but none of them is available. There aren't MSC reviews available at all ...


Hi Fredo, I was wondering since you've been on MSC Orchestra, were you in the Caribbean, and do they serve decaf coffee during the day and later in the evening?
Usually we like to go and have a cup of decaf coffee after the evening show.
I've never sailed on MSC before. I do know Costa use to serve decaf coffee in the Caribbean, but in the Mediterranean it is hard to get decaf coffee. It was hard to get coffee with dinner in the Mediterranean, and you couldn't get decaf on the Lido deck in the evening.
We're going on MSC in January, 2009.
Thanks,
Sandy
