If this was my 1st cruise, there wouldn't be another.

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

The Musica is a nice ship, but the experience was awful. Musica's staff have a belief that they are right and the rest of the world are wrong.

The onshore time at the ports of call are too short and you are herded like cattle to get off the ship. Then there is only time for a quick look round before returning to the ship. Don't choose MSC's excursions unless you have a desire to lose a lot of money - they are ridiculously expensive. Simply get off and get a taxi.

Meal times are like feeding time at the zoo. Big queues and lots of pushing. I like hot food to be hot not lukewarm, and I like it to have some taste. The sweets are allbland and all taste the same no matter what you choose.

The entertainment, well, there isn't any. A beautiful theatre where you sit down expectantly. Some dancers and a singer come out, sing a few songs and disappear after 25 minutes. Next night more of the same. The bands in the bars are bored out of their heads, as are the More passengers.

The TV's in your cabins have nothing on but the news and if you want to watch a film, there is a charge.

A service charge of 15% is levied on everything you pay for and whats worse is that you are charged an extra charge on your room account for having your room cleaned. How does that work?

I could carry on but enough is enough. Never again MSC. All I can say is Thank God we cruised with Thomsons last year, because I now know what a good cruise should be like. Less

Cabin review: MSC Musica Interior Grazioso Deck 11016

Small but quite adequate. Cabin staff are nice.

Port and Shore Excursions


Big city, been before, short time there so you cannot really explore.

Lovely place. Wander round and enjoy.
