Hi red .... drinks prices? I have copies of all the drinks menus from the ship and have scanned and posted them on Windows Live (all 48 pages) ................... http://cid-1cdc327c72a4c6d9.photos.live.com/self.aspx/MSC PRICE LISTS/IMG^_0001.jpg .............. and can only find 3 drinks at £8 BLACK & BULL €9.70; RED & RED €8.70 and premium mixes €7.70. Most drinks are €6.70 which convert to £5.82 then back to £6.70 with grats ( conversion rate£1 = €1.15) If you multiply €6.70 by 1.15 you get nearly £8.00 but that's the wrong conversion!! Other than that I thought that the comment about "flat" singers was correct maybe the guy and one of the girls were having an off week cetainly the lead girl doing the Abba tribute stuggled with the range needed. I'm just sorry that your impression of the week you had aboard wasn't as good as my impression of the previous week's cruise and I wish you many better cruises in the future and hope they short out your account soon. That appears to be a real problem on MSC but as I didn't have any packages I had no trouble. so Happy cruising and you never know our paths may cross one day. .... Pete.

Hi Pete, checked and you right about the drinks, maybe because we were not paying I didn't pay enough attention so my apologies. I'm suprised about the singers, they were really very good, the black girl singer was very strong on our nights. I loved the Splendida, a lot of people were saying it was nicer than Celebrity Solstice range. As I said the service and food let it down for me. I also meant to say it was very poor than there are no changing rooms or showers to use when using the gym. You had to walk back to your cabin wearing sweaty gym gear! It wouldn't hurt them to give you free water in the gym either! Hope to catch you soon Pete, think I'm gonna do IOS or Oasis next.

Hi Red ........ Ah!! If you had a black girl singer then you had different singers to us, so that would account for the difference in opinion as to them singing "flat", didn't use the gym so didn't know about the lack of water, changing rooms or showers. a big oversight by MSC . We're booked on Norwegian Dawn in April, Azura in May and Grandeur of the seas in Oct and trying to find a really good deal for late Aug so I can take my daughters as well ( they want to go to the Caribbean, so that may be difficult). ...... May catch you sometime ....... Pete.
