Quality of Food:
Nothing was too much to ask.
Entertainment:
Sometimes we went to both shows they were so entertaining and unusual.
Shore Excursions:
We sat in a bus for an hour on a hot day. Going around an island. We had not thought that one through enough . Our own faults.
Staff:
The staff was very helpful in our position. And told us how to catch the mega bus to the next port. And how to book a hotel. It was quite costly. The staff at the cruise terminal
Childrens Activities:
We never saw many children. So they were quite occupied. And when the children used the pool they were respectful to people around the pool. No screaming or shouting
Onboard Activities:
There was enough to do for everyone. Dancing. Singing. Casino . Reading rooms. Cigar rooms etc. Sauna and keep fit. Bingo. Theatre. Bars. Everything you need to keep you happy and entertained.
Cabins:
The room was perfect. Your own shower and bathroom. Cleaned and refreshed every day. Beds was lovely and comfortable. Fridges in the room you could use for your chocs and water act
Be careful how you fill in visas 
My husband had been diagnosed with Alzheimer.And he put on the visa that he takes drugs. This was for the illness obviously.but when we got to the cruise terminal. We was not allowed t to board the cruise ship. For we had worded it all wrong. We had to get a bus to the next post of call Marseille.to see if the would allow us to board. And fortunately they did. But we was told they could refuse us. Our hearts was in our mouths. But msc was very good and upgraded us to a balcony cabin. Which was lovely. We slept for 2 days due to the upset and worry if not maybe not being able to board for they said we may have to go home. The staff treated us amazing. As did msc. But not an experience I'd like to go through again. We will be careful how we word out visas next time. For they said America would not let drug addicts in. And yet it was just my husband's medication. it took us a few days to settle down. The food was lovely.And we thought we was in a dream. So much to do. We had a back massage to relax us. And went and laid on the dungeon to read out books and people watch. We met some nice people who we met up with for card games. And learnt to dance near the inside pool. That was fun. We met more friends there. The food in the dining room was too class. So was the buffet at lunch time. The staff was always smiling and helpful. Beds was changed and made every day. It was like being in a dream blissful .Sandie and Neill
