This was my first time on MSC and experiencing the "European Style" of cruising. I arrived in Santo Domingo a day early and did a half-day tour of it the day of the cruise, as the ship didn't leave until 11pm I think. Embarkation is a ... Read more

I had read so many negative reviews that I was hesitant to book this cruise line. I truly don't know what they were complaining about! Boarding was so swift and I was in my cabin, with my luggage without any snafus. There were 3,000 ... Read more

We have cruised on Holland America - can't find any fault there - our friends have cruised with Princess - also could not find any fault. MSC Musica was an experience that we would not want to repeat. The ship was fine, our cabin was good ... Read more

This cruise was fairly well advertised in North America, in hopes I think of getting a slice of the North American market. It failed miserably. The food was terrible. There was very little beef or shellfish available and what there was, ... Read more

Our cruise was widely promoted in Australia as The Grand European Cruise. In fact, it was broken down into 4 separate journeys, starting and finishing in Kiel or Vienna, and catering for different nationalities. Consequently, the ... Read more

The food on the MSC Musica was terrible. No variety and tasteless. The food was several times served not hot, even during dinner. The lunch buffet was a straight disaster. I travelled solo and each time I want to get something from the ... Read more

Unfortunately we chose to take a cruise with MSC Musica leaving Buenos Aires January 4, 2013. Boarding the ship took five hours of a disastrous standing on four lines without any help from either the port authorities or MSC, who had two or ... Read more

My sister and I booked this cruise because of the price, then we started reading the reviews and got a little worried. As always, the embarkation process is long and full of sales pitches. It was a cold, rainy day in Venice, so ... Read more

I booked this cruise from Bari to Venice (6 nights) as it was a cheap way to find out what this cruising is like. I can't say I liked it. In the end I filled out the questionnaire they give you and found 20 points of complaints. Main ... Read more

We always dreamed of seeing the Mediterranean and the affordability of this cruise allowed us to fulfill that dream. $1400 for a balcony cabin (price to 2 people not per person) for a 7 night cruise is a good deal in my book. We had ... Read more

We were on the MSC Musica recently and it was by far the worst cruise ever, and none of the other cruises taken were considered bad. It seems that once we hand over our money, we were ignored. We were provided very little information ... Read more

Our overall impression of this cruise was very positive, and we would align ourselves more with skintman's assessment than with more negative reviews. The key requirements were definitely in place: a safe and well managed cruise on an ... Read more
