I chose this cruise and line because I had often heard about the beautiful Norwegian fjords, and I wanted to sail with an international cruise line (i.e., not one that caters mostly to Germans). Our port of embarkation was Kiel, Germany ... Read more

We chose because of ports of cal.,.worst cruise ever and we have been on many. This ship squeezes a dime out of every nickle. Food was below hospital quality...small amounts and the buffet was every man and woman for themselves, even the ... Read more

MSC Musica departs from the Port of Kiel during the summer of 2016. Our cruise was one that took us on the Baltic Sea to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallinn and St Petersburg. Embarkation was a smooth process - MSC offers a free transfer ... Read more

Although I have experienced some of the ports of call in the past (on a Suez transit to Dubai on QM2) I wanted to experience a 'standard' 7-day Dubai returned trip. And in my opinion MSC is better than Costa and RCI that also operate here, ... Read more

We did not pay much attention to reviews about MSC Musica until after we already booked a cruise and got quite upset in our choice of MSC, but still hoped for better experience with them. Yet, we were prepared for average (or even below ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever, so we went with no preconceived ideas and no expectations. We chose the cruises mainly on price, it was cheap and it went to interesting places in the Middle East that I wanted to go to. We knew we would ... Read more

By this I mean you have to PAY for water, even in the dining room. It's free in the buffet restaurant, but that's the only place. Even the gym doesn't have water fountains! There are no fresh flowers anywhere (they're plastic) and the ... Read more

Like many others we had read some not great reviews of MSC cruises and were aware that this might well be why they seemed consistently cheaper than some other cruise lines. This, however was one of only two cruise itineries that fitted in ... Read more

First time on MSC. Cabin on deck 5 (5064) was so noisy it was impossible to sleep. It took 3 days of complaining before we were moved. Once moved to deck 8 the cabin was fine. Buffett restaurant was not good, very difficult to find a ... Read more

The biggest reasons for taking a cruise are, for me, the food, the service and the entertainment (of all kinds) on board. Lets start with the food. It was terrible. Even after just 5 nights they started repeating earlier menus in the ... Read more
