My wife, teenaged daughter, and I just returned from a seven-day cruise aboard the MSC Musica. We departed Copenhagen, with ports of call in Stockholm, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, and Kiel. This was our third sailing with MSC, having been ... Read more

We choose this cruise, because it was advertised on a deal site. The destinations looked great and it was close to home. We could board in Copenhagen and we live 10 km from there. Very nice. As we know Copenhagen, being natives, we did ... 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

As for the rest of the MSC fleet, MSC Poesia is a beautiful and generally well-maintained ship. However, several minor and major flaws on our Baltic cruise made us consider another cruise line for our next tour. Here are a few examples: ... Read more

Really enjoyed our second cruise & debut with MSC. The Poesia is a well maintained, modern ship & there were zero problems embarking in Copenhagen. Our taxi from the airport was aware that the port has moved further out & we ... Read more

This cruise was fairly well advertised in North America, in hopes I think of getting a slice of the North American market. It failed miserably. The food was terrible. There was very little beef or shellfish available and what there was, ... Read more

Having read reviews on the MSC Poesia we were prepared for a beautiful ship with substandard service but our cruise to Stockholm, Tallin, Sankt Petersburg and Kiel by far exceeded our expectations. It is true that food is not available ... Read more

We have taken a lot of cruises. One was on a sailing yacht, and the others were larger ships. MSC is not a good choice for Americans. You will feel less welcome and the food is nnot to our taste. This ship was like a cattle car, very ... Read more
