My bf and I decided to go on a 5 day cruise to Maputo and Portuguese islands for my birthday and it was the best decision we ever made. From the the time we arrived on the cruise we were made to feel royalty. The food was standard a curry ... Read more

I booked this cruise through Groupon about a week or so before departure date at a price I thought was quite reasonable. I won't go into the frustration from MSC Johannesburg offices of not answering their phones and giving incorrect ... Read more

This was a first cruise and a trial cruise for us and if three days on board MSC Sinfonia is any indication what cruising is really about, we'll never do it again! We can heartily recommend the suite cabins with balconies which are ... Read more

Sinfonia is a beautiful ship. It's so lovely to watch the sea through panoramic windows in the buffet, gym, disco, and on deck. The kind of ship where you always feel connected to the ocean. All the staff we dealt with were friendly and ... Read more

We were greeted by exceptionally long queues and frustrated people. We paid for "Fast track" as it is impossible to stand in a queue with a 3 year old child for 4 hours. Once inside the Fast track option was available but this ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with MSC so we knew what to expect. Having been on the newer, larger ships I have to say we were somewhat disappointed with the Sinfonia despite the extension and revitalisation. On the plus side it was small ... Read more

This is our 2nd cruise with MSC. The extended Sinfonia was a feast to be on. We ignored all the negative crits (as usual unfounded again). Embarkation in Copenhagen was painless. The Sinfonia proved to be all we expected (Our previous ... Read more

We've only cruised with MSC - their variety of ports and frequency of trips are amazing. The option of maintaining one accommodation and seeing so many places is wonderful and MSC is just great!! Embarkation - what a pleasure and MSC ... Read more
