Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great rooms, dining room and lounges. The absolute worst buffet food, area and uncaring staff. The “hot” dishes were barely like warm. Many of the serving dishes were empty and a depressing atmosphere in the buffet room compared to the rest of the ship. Overall, the crew on this MSC ship seemed uncaring to guests as compared to the Celebrity Infinity cruise we were on, just 3 days earlier. We have taken over 8 cruises over the past years and have never felt so disappointed.

Had a great time, really enjoyed the Cruise. Don't expect silver service or anything like that. It's simple and a very effective way of travelling and seeing spots around the med. Cabin was great, especially Soysa, lad who looked after it. Buffet at the back of the ship was great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't expect anything fanatastic, It's a plastic tray / plate, select what you want. All nicely done. Had a great week, would defintely be back. fyi, i did buy two beers, 9 euros each. rest of the time i was drinking coffee and water.

As mentioned in previous reviews, everyone is your group has to buy a drinks package. It was something we were only made aware of when we boarded. Staff push this drinks package and do not inform you that you can instead just top up your cruise card with cash and pay as you go. Toilets didn't work in our cabin 80% of the time. We spent two nights dealing with seasickness with a toilet that didn't work!!!! Thr buffet was lack lustre, chaotic and grubby. There didn't seem to be a system. Poor communication across the ship. We were always having to seek out information. We spent so many days queuing at guest services. What made up for it was the cities we visited. They were beautiful and it was so nice to get a reprieve from the boat.

You should listen to me okay. So basically some staff told us that just because we booked with our friends we gotta buy a drink package for EVERYONE. They dont care about their customers at all. The only thing they care about is loney. Other than that the cruise was just horrible and very very small. Generally 1/10. And that is not all the service is terrible and rooms are incredibly small. I absolutly dont recommend this cruise. Costa is by far better. Thank you for reading.
