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

The cruise left from beautiful Cape Town - but then I'm biased as I live there. The embarkation process was smooth and quick. The ship has recently been refurbished and it was very clean. The staff were very nice - but were not very well ... Read more

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
