  3. MSC Sinfonia
Main reason for taking this cruise was to visit Indian Ocean Islands Due to engine trouble after seven days at sea we had two hours of daylight on shore in Seychelles two sea days later we had four hours of daylight onshore in Mauritius. Complaints to customer service desk fell on deaf ears. Food in main dining room was good but not consistent, service was good but erratic at times with all guests not receiving correct course at same time Wine & drinks packages very complicated and geared towards the company choosing drinks of their choice ( usually cheap Italian wine and poor quality spirits ) Cabin service was good and kept clean with fresh towels every day, shower was very small with plastic curtain Evening entertainment was average, there was plenty of deck games to join in or watch. Sun loungers were easily come by embarkation and disembarking at ports was a shambles, loudspeaker communication was chaotic and often unclear. M.S.C would not be our choice of cruiselines

Poor guest relations and engine failure
