Went on this ship with a friend. I wish that there was more food late night. We got stuck eating wrapped sandwiches. We did have a lot of fun, was difficult when we were docked and the ship was so quiet and we could hear all the partying on the ship docked behind us. I would still def go on more MSC ships as i do love them very much!

Cute and quaint ship. Most of the staff were friendly. Clean ship for its age. Very easy to navigate. The spa was not as aggressive as my previous MSC experience. Even when walking into the spa area, I was never asked for a service. This shocked me. A few staff members had no idea about the voyagers club status levels. I was told the only difference is the color of your hard. I tried to keep a straight face, hope I succeeded. It was obvious they were new to the cruise industry as every line has differences in status levels.

Great group vacation! we all loved it :)

We were a large group with children (different ages: 5-7 year old kids and adolescents). we were so excited of that experience, we all enjoyed our time onboard (so many things to do, children never got bored, the staff was professional and trustworthy, the rooms were clean, the food was delicious). We chose this itinerary because it seemed to be interesting, with varied destinations and that is exactly what we got: archaeological sites, must dos, trendy spots, a medieval town and a completely unknow country (Albania) which amazed us so much! will definitely choose MSC again, for our next cruise vacation!

Was on board for Shiprock 2009. My best friend got crazy food poisoning on day 2 and missed most of concerts on board. Really was a bummer for us all.

Fun time, much better cruise lines out there though. The pools were always closed. English was not the primary language. Not a biggie, but more of a shock I guess.

Great time and Good All around Service

Average food, undrinkable wine (unless you paid up-charge). Did not have 1 good meal in the dining room at night. Super disappointed about that. Hot tubs cold. But the boat was clean and out balcony cabin was great. Had a nice massage.
