The Opera is a great ship. Sail with the proper expectations (price to value) and you will have a great time. The locks on the cabin doors are electronic and your sign and sail card also acts as your door key. It is very safe, but I would also recommend that you use your room safe, as well.

Have a great cruise.

You always have two cards to open the room. Ask for one more. I think, taht would be no problem. Not all of the crew speak english, but you will always will find a crew member that speaks your language.

Hi Paul,
not the captain but the crew makes the evaluation drill. This is in the morning of the second day on board. There is a special signal . Than you may got to your surinum (place of appointment) that hangs out on a sign board in your cabin. The MSC Opera has enough life boats for all passengers and the crew members.
The personal safe in your cabin is big enough an it is realy safe.
To learn something about your ship, click here:

Enjoy your cruise on MS Opera

Hi Paul, and welcome to Cruise-Chat.com!

MSC Cruises website contains a lot of information about the fleet, and the cruise company generally.
I will anyway recommand:
- The Virtual Tours onboard MSC Opera: http://www.msccruisesusa.com/flotta/virtualtour.asp?pag...13&tour=320&tipo=mov
- The Pictures from the ship: http://www.msccruisesusa.com/flotta/...13&page_id=309

I think that will give you a right impression of MSC Opera. You can also read some reviews from this ship, by clicking here.

Good Luck Planning Your Cruise!

Actually, ships are required to have 100% life boat (or boat and raft) capacity on both sides of the ship. This was a direct result of the sinking of the Adrea Dorria back in the late 1950's.

The ship suffered a collision with an other vessel, and started to list badly to one side and could not launch the boats on that side of the ship.

Every ship in the vacinity came to its rescue and they were using all the life boats available to tender between the ships. Everybody who survived the collision got off the ship, otherwise without assistance it could have been another Titanic.
