Hello all. 
 

Couldn’t be more impressed with the start of the week’s voyage. From car park to stepping aboard in 35 minutes. Every crew member is great so far. 
 

2.50pm and on second glass of Moët in the champagne bar and it’s actually sunny and warm. Hurrah.

We were only confirmed on yesterday and sailed today so they only had one cabin which was a 13th deck Fantastica balcony which is really nice. The bathroom is a little, er, bijoux but otherwise all good. 
 

They have both types of Moët but only the pink Veuve at the moment. 
 

Noticing silly little things like the carpets all have that ‘brand new’ bounce. Also enjoying only having the announcements once 🤣 The volume of staff is ridiculuous - it’s like being on Oceania on a massive ship. Hah. I’ve just witnessed the dinosaurs being wiped out on the ceiling of the main atrium as we sailed past the Jurassic coast. Nice touch 🤣🦕🦖💥

Yeah. We must have been waitlisted and someone cancelled last minute. I guess the Glasgow cancellation may have worked in our favour. 
 

There’s less than 800 on board and it’s a surprisingly young crowd - but everyone seems under for it and is in good spirits that I’ve seen.

We are back onboard on Saturday so hope the champagne bar is restocked. One question if you get time, is the thermal area of the spa still basically closed with no saunas, bubble pools & stream rooms working. When we were on in May only a couple of heated beds, shower and salt room were open. Thanks.

No, but my balance on my August cruise from Greenock is due on Wednesday.  However, I work on cruise ships in another Scottish port, have at least one that is due in the next few weeks, and wonder if MSC have any further information other than the next planned Scottish Government review on the 28th June.

I see and I understand your dilemma, we are on the 23rd June cruise and still don't know what the position is 🤔

hey

 

Greenock has been replaced by overnight and extra day in Liverpool.

 

Now leave Liverpool at 16:30 on Wednesday and head to Belfast
