I am sure you will both have a wonderful time . I wish I were going along with you . . I can say the Lobster was the worst I have ever had but I heard that has changed . I talked to someone from Msc and they did say they made a lot of changes to the food . I think that was the main complaint from most people . We were on the Lirica but would also like to go on the Opera. Have fun and go with a good attitude.
