Ship Facts: MSC Sinfonia Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Sinfonia Deck Plans
Cruising with MSC Sinforia
The ship itself was nice the evening entertainment was excellent. Cabin was a little small but fine - had fridge wardrobe space adequate shower was small compared to other cruise lines. Lighting was dim and found it difficult to read even with all the lights turned on because of where they were placed. Main restaurants were on decks five and six but the tables were too close together making access for serving difficult for the waiters. The Irish bar and the casino were both smoking areas although there was a small section by the bar that was non smoking but you could smell the smoke. The theater was a good size but you had to be there early in order to get a seat. Seating was tiered with 2 rows of seats to each tier the front row of the tier had excellent views but the back row of each tier you were obstructed by the people sitting in front.

Our complaints:-

If you wanted water with your dinner of an evening or lunch during the day in the restaurant you had to purchase the water by the bottle €2.6 plus a service charge of 15%. The buffet if you choose to eat there of an evening closed at 8.45 pm so after then you could only get tea coffee or water from the machines. We found that there was no English tea of an evening only Calamine and Earl Grey (need to pocket some during the day if you like a cup of tea late at night):-)

The food was Italian style lots of small dishes but we did not enjoy the cuisine we found it bland and the meat usually tough. This is our own personal opinion.

We have cruised with other companies and would not cruise with these again by choice. This ship is mainly for Italians French and Spanish so there was a language problem when trying to communicate with other passengers. The staff all spoke English.

Passengers were taken on at each port except for Tunis which meant the lifeboat drill was repeated each day (you only have to do it once on the port you embarked). The announcements in different languages became tiresome and sometimes they forgot to announce them in English. In the theater all the shows were in English which was to our advantage.
