Great itinerary ,Shanghai to Dubai, and beautiful ship. Ports were great except for Phuket where the locals were pests and we felt unsafe. Sshanghai, Singapore and Dubai were fantastic. Shore excursions too expensive, suggest you plan your own activities at each port. entertainment was poor and amateur and repetitive. Buffet food not warm and same every day. No coffee or tea in dining room and have to pay for water. Service was poor and cabin not made up properly and on a timely basis. Staff not very friendly and not properly trained. We could not easily plan daily activities as information lacking and poorly communicated. Dance floors were small and traffic flow often went directly into dance area. Bands were OK but schedule for each group began at same time and therefor breaks at same time. Overall, many passengers were disappointed with this cruise and openly said so. After first week it was hard to see anyone with a happy face. Do not recommend MSC and would not take another cruise with them.

Staff poorly trained.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom – Fantastica
Cabin O2 8156
Cabin OK but steward inefficient. Bed sheets loose every day and not tucked. Only spoke with steward 7 times in 27 days.
