My wife and I are looking to get away with out the children for a Med. cruise before memorial day. Trying to save money, at first were interested in the Costa cruises, but were not happy w/ the reviews of the heavy european smoking and poor food.
I had not heard of MSC before despite being on over 25 cruises (have ran the gambit: Princess, Holland american, Carnival, Royal Carribean, Windstar) and was curious to find out about it...especially w/ the cheap rates (about 850/person for 1 week)
We are using the ship as a means to get around the various ports, though we want to be able to eat decently, and enjoy ourselves while on the ship.
We are looking now at the Montery, which has a great itenerary, but was built in the 50's though refurbished in 2004, and want to know if anyone has been on it and can say how it compares to other cruises and maybe other MSC ships.
