MSC Magnifica Cabins

Editor Rating
There are just five main types of cabins: deluxe balcony suites (44); family-size suites with balcony (8); outside cabins with balcony (785); outside cabins (173) and inside cabins (249). All have minibars, safes, hair dryers, interactive TVs, phones and U.S. and E.U. plug sockets. There are 16 cabins (2 deluxe, 2 balcony, 2 outside and 10 inside) for people with disabilities.

The deluxe suites are 355 square feet (33 square meters) -- disabled ones are 452 square feet or 42 square meters -- and they're situated on Decks 13 and 14 at the front of the ship. All but two are on the port and starboard sides; two (15007 and 15008) are forward-facing. They include double beds that can be converted into singles, a bathroom with a tub-shower combo and a spacious wardrobe. They are designed in a tasteful black and red decor, which makes them quite stylish, though a little dark. The balconies are a decent size, with enough space for three chairs, a table and a lounger. The living area has a large plasma TV fixed to the wall, as well as two desks -- one for writing and one that acts as a vanity. The cabin has heaps of cupboard and wardrobe space, with numerous drawers squirreled away. The bathroom is fine (always good to have a tub), but it was disappointing to have no individual products, just large dispensers. (It allegedly has to do with MSC's green commitments.)

The family-size suites come in at almost 291 square feet (27 square meters), and two each are located on Decks 9 through 12, toward the front of the ship.

They are nicely arranged, with the door in the middle of the room and the cabin effectively divided in two by a partition, allowing the adults and kids some privacy. There is a double bed, a divider and a living area with a fold-down sofa that would fit two kids. The living space leads to the balcony, which is a bit bigger, as the cabin is on the corner. Like the deluxe suites, the family suites have plenty of wardrobe space, yet the bathroom just has a shower.

There are six categories of balcony staterooms, all of which are 161 square feet or 15 square meters (disabled are 301 square feet or 28 square meters) and located on Decks 8 through 12. Some are interconnecting. A number in each category are aft-facing on each of those decks. Each balcony cabin has a double bed, a small living area, a small bathroom and a balcony with enough space for two chairs and a table. The balconies vary in size from 43 to 86 square feet (4 to 8 square meters).

It's worth noting that there are six Juliet Balcony cabins on Deck 12. (While these have the floor-to-ceiling windows that open, there is just a railing and not an outside space that you can step out on.)

The outside cabins are 183 square feet (17 square meters) and have the same interior layout as the balcony staterooms.

Inside cabins are located on Decks 5 and 8 through12. They are 151 square feet or 14 square meters (disabled ones are 226 square feet or 21 square meters) and do not have a living area -- just a bed, desk, wardrobe and shower room.

Note that in some of the outside cabins and inside cabins, the third and fourth beds are bunks.

There are no single cabins.
