Cabins:
Just before the cruise my wife had an accident which meant she was temporary on crutches in fact the best part of this cruise was the check in where within minutes a wheelchair was procured & after the formalities we were taken straight to our cabin. First impressions cabin clean & tidy, after a quick tour of the boat we decided to try the buffet for lunch. it was a free for all you had to fight for a table then state your claim for it. But more worrying was the you served yourself on Plastic Plates, food was poor very little choice & this was the same every day although due to the fight for tables we did not venture to the buffet apart from a quick snack at lunchtime. Evening meal we asked for an early sitting on a table of 8 after 4 nights we swapped to a later sitting for 2 reasons, the most number if guests on the table each night was 4 & the standard if the entertainment. I'll start with the food, very poor little choice not very warm and portion size minuscule. We had a drinks package included the choice of wine despite what was advertised was red or white with your meal not even a choice of different types of red or white, then coffee if the waiting staff remembered. Now the entertainment if you could call it that the stage shows very amateurish, dancers just out of sync the singers not sure. This also applied to the other entertainment in the bars if you like 50/60's German umpah music this was just for you (lots of Italian& Germans) on the boat. A lot of the entertainers appeared old & struggled with some of the songs in all a fair few early nights. We tried this cruise as it visited several ports we'd never visited before although due to a strike we couldn't dock in Lisbon. We also wanted to try another cruise line never again with MSC. Compared with Celebrity & RCI its chalk & cheese will be trying P&O as well as our favourite Celebrity this year.
