    • Comments about MSC Cruises
    • Prices of all onboard product were very high (3,11 € for a soft drink can) and the "tax-free" prices in the ship's stores were higher than the tax-included prices on land. Overall MSC concentrate perhaps a bit too much on their being Italian, which doesn't work too well on iteneraries outside the Mediterranean, there's very little connection to the culture of the ports of call onboard the ship.
