MSC has a really great Caribbean itinerary in Feb. when we want to cruise. And great prices! Almost booked last week but then I started to read reviews on all kinds of web site- at least 50 different opinions. For every good review, there seems to be 5 bad ones
. The #1 complaint appears to be the food-not that's it "too Italian" but that it's poorly prepared, presented and served. They apparently are very understaffed.
We cruise Celebrity 80% of the time and I just feel MSC would be too much of a comedown. BTW, all the reviews raved about the ships themselves-how elegant and well kept they were. And I checked the green sheet on the CDC website-the Lirica was inspected in March and got 100! Don't see that very often.
