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

This is really the first comprehensive review I have ever written about anything so forgive me if it’s not in the right format or long winded, instead of just saying something was good or bad I’ll also try to add specific ... 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

If you enjoy bad service, filth and bad food then this trip is for you. My wife, 3 yr old and myself went on the cruise to nowhere ex Durban on 29 Jan 2016. We booked a suite which was the only good part of the trip as it was large and ... Read more

This was my first cruise. The ship was three hours late. you cannot fault them as the weather was. However the communication was not extremely good and a few of the people on the ground knew what was happening. They could have also ... 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

The checking and boarding was fine. The cabin was modern and very nicely decorated, clean with a small window of the port of the ship. Altough the window had mirroring effect from the outside, when interior lights were turned on this ... 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 are just back from our first cruise, 7 days in the Baltic, on the MSC Sinfonia. Read some pretty bad reviews from other people so was a little anxious before we left, but it was really good. We had a very good holiday, and really ... Read more

I must start by saying we usually cruise with princess cruises and were very nervous about this cruise after reading copious amounts of negative reviews online. But I have to say they were all misleading! We embarked in Barcelona at ... Read more
