Ship Facts: MSC Sinfonia Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Sinfonia Deck Plans
Not as good as I expected

The port of Cape Town is beautiful and the staff at the airport was very nice to all of us in the group. Took a heck of a long time and standing in an endless line at the port to embark....Staff very friendly and in less than 3 minutes you are booked in and off you go to board the ship but this happens only once you reach the staff in front....

The food in the La Terrazza restaurant(pool level) was always of mediocre quality...some of the deserts you could taste was "mass-produced" and the rest of the food was of medium quality...nothing to shout out least there was free coffee and warm water to drink.:-(

The Il Galeone had very friendly staff but again the food was no where near good night had steak and it was so tough we didn't even eat it.... Must try not to compare to other cruise lines, but out of ten they scored a 3 in my book.

Cold drinks( sodas) was extremely expensive ($4.37) so drinking warm water was the order of the day....

Visited the Gelateria ( Ice cream parlor) and had a smoothie with some liquers mixed in...also very expensive($5.64).

Staff in the La Terrazza was not very friendly and did not communicate in very good was some of the staff at reception...very broken english spoken and could not understand our South African accent.

Shows at nighttime was Brilliant!!! I must say it really was very entertaining and different every night!! Bravo to the artists/dancers/ singers/ acrobats/magician....

The cruise director - Steve - needs a mention here...he understood the South African humor and entertained us endlessly during Battle of the Sexes and other games!

Found the lifts too small to handle the capacity of the ship.

Disembarkation was fast but did not enjoy the fact that we could not settle our bill the night before...had to be at the accounts dept at around 5 am to sort it out....not good....
