We chose MSC Musica as it fitted with our vacation dates and those of friends that we were travelling with and the ports looked nice. Embarkation in Genoa was ok except whilst waiting to get on the ship we were talked into buying a ... Read more

I was probably on the same sailing as BobK1 since we didn't disembark at Tortola which was a huge deception for me... That said I've to say I was pleasantly surprised with the ship. The cabin was big and well maintained, always clean and ... Read more

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
