When: December 2022
Boarded: Southampton UK.
London to Southampton transfer; coaches, trains, taxi
MSC Terminal: very efficient
Comments: rotating cruise picking up and dropping off passengers at every stop.
Complimentary food: Marketplace buffet had Indian curries, dal and rice every day.
Speciality restaurants: Teppanyaki still a bit of a cringe with stock jokes and script. Steak was overcooked and chewy (Samurai level). Ginger iced cream was outstanding.
Complimentary food: Blue Danube. Service took far too long. Had pretty good Indian vegetarian options.
