If it hadn't been for the people that I went with, it would have been a very boring cruise. The days spent at sea were so excrutiatingly boring due to the lack of entertainment on deck. There was hardly any music on deck for the sunbathers...only in one "designated area" and when that was playing it was so low you couldn't hear it. I asked one of the crew members if they could turn the music up and she told me no because the older people on deck wanted to relax and nap in the sun. If you are under the age of 60 I do not recommend this ship for you! BORING BORING BORING!!! Don't get me wrong...it was a great itinerary, but the rude crew members,so-so tasting food, and lack of entertainment and activities on deck are not worth sailing with MSC.
