We have been on both and just prefer msc not there is much in it, Would go again with both but there tend to be a lot of nationalities and children on board but generaly found them to be no better or worse than others it really depends on your taste.

I have cruised with several different lines Costa being one of them, I have to admit that I was on late dining and found the dining experience the best of all the cruise lines but the entertainment wasn't really my cup of tea. Fantastic ship as well.

Hi only been on msc. opera is a fantastic ship no complaints except the language is mostly european and so is the entertainment,english passengers are the minority, also been on the melody which is smaller, cannot complain as i only paid £10 for each cuis.

Maybe Italian but food certainly isn't, we were v. disappointed in c.classica, v. basic.

I have been on MSC & Costa and I think that Costa has better food. We were on Classica in March going from Dubai and thought the restaurant food excellent but we do not do self service meals on any ship. Anne West Moor.

I went on the Costa Europa two years ago for Christmas it was not the best but the cabins were very spacious and the food was good, a bit difficult to judge as the weather was not that great..overall rating 7.5 out of 1.

We currently live in England and are American. We went on the Cost Fortuna last Spring and were delighted. With 2 kids and a lot of questions(our first cruise) we found the trip quite relaxing. The ship is clean and in great shape. Try your Italian if you want to but most of the crew speak english as well as other languages. Joe jdaak @ btinternet.co.

Hi, cuised on the MSC Armonia last year. Superb ship spotlessly clean, good spacious cabins and friendly staff. The food was enjoyable although I have had better on other lines. English people are in the minority and the entertainment was geared for the Italians, but dispite these negative points the cruise was excellent and I would definately travel with MSC again.

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
