I chose this cruise because I wanted to see Venice, and visit Greece. There were company reps all guiding us to the pick up coaches, which would take us to the ship. My package was supposed to be an all inclusive deal, but as soon as you ... Read more

Slow and tedious embarkation, arrogant office staff but very friendly cabin staff. Difficult to find a table at buffet. Once walked for nearly 1 hour at lunchtime to get a seat. Poorly organised and crowd push in and shove, no system at ... Read more

Where to start.. We booked this ship with our friends for a 50th birthday celebration, and as we'd never been on cruise before we didn't really know what to expect. A painfully slow check in, people barging, elbowing and queue jumping, ... Read more

We have taken many cruises and read the reviews for many months on ports, ships and destinations before we book. This is the first time I didn't trust the reviews. We choose this for the ports of call since it was going where we ... Read more

We cruised from Bari to Olympia, Piraeus, Santorini, Kotor, Corfu and Venice. The weather was perfect late June and the ship was not overly crowded. We found the service excellent, particularly the restaurant and bar staff who were mostly ... Read more

As many others noted, we had read mixed reviews for the Musica. Overall, we had a very good experience mainly because we knew what to expect through these reviews (the good and the not so great). We are a couple in our early 30's who were ... Read more

Second and last cruise ever with MSC...to say we were disappointed would be an a severe understatement. On arrival to our balcony suite we were allocated an extremely unclean cabin that required not cleaning once but twice. Staff were ... Read more

This cruise was my 10th cruise and the 2nd with MSC, so I thought I knew what to expect and, most of all, I expected relax and entertainment, having already visited the majority of ports of call. Unfortunately this cruise did not live up ... Read more

I rarely write a bad review unless its worth it. Unfortunately, its worth it. My family and I (total of 11 of us), travelled on the MSC Musica and I didn't read any reviews on this ship prior to booking. I just assumed all cruises were ... Read more
