"We had not purchased a drinks package before we boarded so the first round of drinks was a surprise two bottles of Heineken was 14 euro with a 15% service charge, total bill 16.At this point we decided to purchase the drinks package 335 euro each for the premium package, To summarise the drinks package turned out to be great value for money as we spent over 900 euro in drinks saving 135 euro in service charges and 230 euros in drinks...."Read More

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was our introduction to the world of cruising we decided to choose MSC due to the competitive price and the ports of call. We were travelling with the elderly so the boat needed to provide on board entertainment and that did not disappoint. First impressions of MSC were good very well organised at the port on the day of embarkation, check in seemed to be repeated as we had already ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

It was the only cruise boarding and disembarking from Piraeus at that date. First the positives. 1. Room service was very good. The room was cleaned twice per day. The whole ship kept very clean. 2. Crew was very professional always eager to assist and always smiling. Except Reception desk officers! 3. The shows in the huge Theater were excellent. It was clear that all the artists put ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

First of all, you have to pay to get off the ship? 15 euro per person. If you want drinks.. This is including water it is 50 euro per person per day! By the way that’s not even including alcohol. $400 aud for wifi for 7 days that doesn’t even work. When we asked to cancel it they wouldn’t even let us. Even one of the workers admitted this is all for the money. The food is disgusting. ...

Definitely overpaid for a simple smaller cruise than Im used to.

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

I have been on several cruises now. Carnival breeze, inspiration and one others I cant remember. Royal Carribean Adventure of the Seas and now this one. This was by far my least favorite and most overpaid cruise. We upgraded to the Jr. Suite with Balcony since no other Balcony's were available. Room felt smaller than other ships, less space near couch area and balcony was basically standard ...

Eastern Mediterranean cruise: excellent staff, service, and great value from a US cruiser.

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

From a first time newbie cruiser: Family cruise centered around Athens, Greece for 2 week trip. Picked up MSC cruise at Athens, Greece in Piraeus port - 12 noon check in - very easy & fast check-in, luggage tags already provided (no need to pre-print tags which we had) and luggage delivered before ship sailed at 5pm. So glad we planned to arrive into Athens 2 days prior because we had a ...

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

I spent six weeks travelling through South Africa and decided to return to Europe by cruise. In spring 2023 there were exactly five ships doing this. Costa, Aida, Phoenix and two MSC vessels. Costa visited on the world cruise and no cabin was available. Aida did a fast track through the Atlantic Ocean and mainly visited ports in Europe, in my opinion no attractive itinerary. Phoenix did extensive ...

Too many problems and poor commincation

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We travelled on a 30 day “Grand Voyage” from Cape Town to Venice on the MSC Sinfonia in March/April 2023. This is a 3.5 star vessel, and the onboard experience met or slightly exceeded expectations at that price point. The ship is well maintained, and the food entertainment and service are normally good. Note, this ship was cut in two and more cabins inserted. This put a strain on the facilities ...

Review for a Africa Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

Ship Never Showed
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose the cruise because it was supposed to pick us up in Walvis Bay, Namibia and it was a repositioning cruise to Europe. The duration, dates, and destination of the cruise were a perfect fit... we thought. Even though we had written permission from MSC to board the ship in Walvis Bay, Namibia, the ship never showed up. They never contacted us. No letter, no email, no text, no call. We ...

Review for a Africa Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

This was our first cruise with MSC and we were super disappointed, especially after the big hype. To start off, we were clearly instructed to not arrive before our embarkation time, which was 12pm. We got the just before 12, thinking it would be a smooth embarkation. We stood in 3 different queues. For 3 hours. They don’t have any way of stopping those that arrive too early (there were people ...

Review for a Africa Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We went on our dream cruise on the Sinfonia out of Cape Town to Walvis Bay, we left Cape Town 2 hours late the sea was quite rough and we arrived in Walvis Bay 2 hours late and this took 2 hours of our tour of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund I was peeved of as it cost quite a lot for the tour and we had to be back on board by 14.30 to sail at 16.00. We got on our way and arrived back in Cape Town some 4 ...
