  3. MSC Sinfonia
Restaurant food very mediocre - poor quality and presentation. Vegetarian option attrocious. Not good to have to sit with the same people for dinner for 23 nights. Need dine around option. Far too much queuing for everything. Drinks packages very questionable. Speaker - Hugh Mitford possibly the worst speaker I have ever heard - not surprisingly his lecture series was cancelled. Generally would only rate MSC as a 3 star cruise. Cabin - balcony suite good. Would not recommend MSC. Boarding at Venice was dreadful - MSC need to do a time and motion study - we had to queue three times to in fact do the same thing. You then have to queue to have your card endorsed for drinks package - why cann't this be done when you purchase the package? We had to wait for 2 days to get the light changed in the bathroom, which did not work. Disembarkation process good.

MSC you need to improve
