I'm guessing the omitting of everything in 7 languages will be only for the "new" look and feel. Yes, they are very European, as we found out, and frankly found it annoying to a point. Why cater to the Europeans in American waters when all their other ships already in Europe do? On our cruise from FLL, frankly we felt like we were in some foreign land where people stayed segregated with their own nationality, English speaking people were indeed the minority. I must say in all fairness, it was over an Easter week, and that was their holiday time here, so maybe that contributed to the nationality imbalance.
I think and hope their new strategies work out so this ship will stay in the competition. This is a huge gamble on MSC's part to send us their newest and most expensive ship. It's also not a well known cruise line here in the states.
