The embarkation was fast although we were many. A shuttle bus collected us at the airport and the luggage was safe and well managed by the friendly staff. The immigration did its work perfectly well. No wasting of time on checking the ... Read more

We have had done two previous trips on board the Opera which was great. The MSC Sinfonia is great, we had a wonderful time. The entertainment crew on a ship makes a huge difference to your overall experience and was far better than the ... Read more

We paid for the suite so we were happy with the room size and the balcony. The room needed massively updating however and was dirty upon embarkation. The restaurant il Covo was almost faultless - food, service, everything went well. ... Read more

We decided to go on the MSC Sinfonia as so many of our friends have been and we wanted to experience what they have been talking about. Best way to start the day- BREAKFAST! There was always such a big variety that you could never ... Read more

The ocean view cabin is small. Sharing with 2 children, ridiculously small. This was our first time on a MSC Cruise, and on South African water, and oh boy, this was not a smooth cruise. During the 7 nights, I had 7 sleepness nights as you ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare, even having paid for "fast track". The process was totally disorganised and unprofessional. The staff started out being surly and downright rude. The cabin was comfortable, but we had to request new ... Read more

Got on the ship, bit slow boarding. They have stretched the ship and fitted another 200 cabins. We had a new cabin (9105). Very tidy, but a bit small. Adequate, but not as good as the last time on this ship. Had requested fixed early ... Read more

We are black card club members so we know what to expect from MSC. Our cabin was an Aurea Suite. Fabulous suite, walk in wardrobe, bath/shower, robes and slippers. As we were black card we got a welcome treat of Wine, fruit and ... Read more

Destinations looked interesting However it was quicker flying from Gatwick to Venice than getting on this cruise with five different queues. Lets try Dinner - Over 1.5 hours to serve and that will be nearly 3 Euros for a bottle of water ... Read more

We've just returned from our 3rd and, to our surprise, best MSC cruise. We sailed Sinfonia out of Venice to Split, Santorini, Mykonos, Dubrovnik and Ancona. The ship is smallest of our 3 cruises, easy to walk around but with some dead ends ... Read more

It was my first cruise experience. I want to specify that I'm 24 and I'm used to travel but I opt for hostels, b & b and Airbnb. I was told that the cruise was a nice option to see more places as easily as possible. The positive: ... Read more

As previous reviewer’s mentions, when reading reviews of this ship you'll never want to board it in the first place. BUT... We have an extraordinary time on the MSC Sinfonia. I suggest paying a little extra for the Aurea suite and ... Read more

We chose MSC because the ports of call were more interesting to us than the other cruise ships. We had read not so good reviews about MSC and the experience was about the same as the reviews. The service cannot be compared with Norwegian, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the places we visited, i.e. Croatia and Santorini. The ship was very nice but there were far too many children running riot everywhere. Very few people dressed up on the two gala nights. We could not get a ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the fact that the departure port was Cape Town, our home. The route was not port intensive as it was up the West Coast of Africa and involved a lot of sea days. Not a bad thing as it was very relaxing. ... Read more
