MSC Orchestra

Eastern Mediterranean

This ship is designed for German speaking passengers only. We only speak English and felt like we were second rate. Half of what was being said was never translated for us. So we were told by duel speaking friends. The prices they charge for everything is stupid. In the ports we were never told anything about what was there if you wanted to sightsee on your own and not pay the large sums for the bus tours.

We did the same things as the bus tours and only paid a quarter of the price and it was for two people.

We could not do the activities as they could not speak English so we read a book and went to the gym since this was free -- the only thing that was.

Water was charged at four times the price you could get it on shore.

Their Italian food was awful.

We will never sail on an MSC ship again. We hated it.
