Why is the photos so expensive. When you dont buy it they throw all away?? Their are many people that look at the photos but dont buy. It is very nice pictures but really expensive. Think about cheaper prices as to throw everything away.. The food staff rooms and entertainment is very nice. On our 2 nd trip their was also more fish available. Deserts and so many of a variety of fruits were avaible. Cocktail of the day was also our favourite The staff is helpfull and friendly. We enjoy all the entertainment . We did not see the Sokkie singers too much to mingle with them as it would have been nice. On Portuguese Iland with all the changes and enough shades was awesome. We will definitely go on another cruise. Prices is resonible. Their is 1 more last thing. The hairdryer does not work as the laat time Read Less

This was chosen by a friend who was planning this trip. i scanned on website and saw the video clip of the MSC Musica and showed to my mom who was open mouth. Embarkment was a long process but otherwise it was moving. Excitement was mounting.it was a wonderful experience and I never looked back. the entertainment was riveting and kept the crowd asking for more, I thoroughly enjoyed every living moment of this cruise. I had a relaxing and well deserved holidays with no stress, routine and rush!! Pity I missed the gym even though I was prepared with my workout gear. The waiters was fabulous and friendly and even funny when they pronounced the greetings in different languages, they were all too cute. restaurant services were excellent and as well as the various buffet area and the halaal section was well cater for all for our needs. It was a bit crowded when looking for a seat inside the hall, but otherwise seating on the outside deck was awesome with the wind blowing in your hair and the wonderful Almighty creation by being surrounded by the ocean. It was so beautiful to be sailing in the ocean! it was pure bliss exploring and meeting people all over and was even surprised to meet a lady that lives close to me. The pool was not disabled friendly with no step but only a ladder to get in and out the pool. The Jacuzzi, I enjoyed the most while it massage all my daily living stress, lol I didn't participated in much activities, was relaxing on the desk chair and had a sun tan, exploring the various lounge and shops. I shopped at the MSC shop and was just in time before closing off time and purchased a special gifts for myself and my mom. •Disembarkation was quick compared to the embarkation with my luggage waiting for me, it was free flowing upon disembarked. The flow of getting out of the dock was good and not even congested. Thank you MSC from the bottom of my heart for a truly and wonderful experiences. Read Less

I wanted to spoil the most important person in my life; my 86years 'young' mother. I've been fortunate to cruise with her on the Symphonia as well as the Opera, and I find this mode of 'traveltainment' ideal for retired and elderly passengers. The Musica's decor and layout didn't disappoint! The ample and elegant facilities - recreational swimming pools, gym, lounges, library, .... catered for everyone's needs. Meals whether taken on the deck or in the restaurant were equally delectable. Eating in the restaurant also allowed for good companionship to develop. Embarkation in Durban was a hassle-free process. We arrived at N Shed at approximately 14h00hrs. The queues were speedily dispensed with and boarding was handled efficiently and professionally. Travellers were allowed to explore the ship to their hearts content and partake in a hearty lunch. So, all in all, the MSC Music with its delectable cuisine, superb entertainment, friendly staff and of course, a calm ocean, all contributed to a wonderful memory making experience! Thank you MSC Musica for making this an enjoyable experience! Read Less

We went on this cruise to satisfy my wife's wishes to go on a cruise. Boarding the ship at Durban was a disaster. Safety procedures the first day were very unprofessional compared with other cruises i have been on. Instructions were received in a crowed lounge with no intention to demonstrate an emergency drill next to the lifeboats which has been done on previous cruises I have been on. I felt a sense of poor attention to emergency by the crew. The cabin was well fitted out and comfortable. Food was generally of poor quality. Crew on board were generally helpful except for the day of arrival at Durban. Disembarking was a total shambles. The staff had promised wheelchair assistance from the cabin on morning of disembarkation and none turned up. When i called for the staff member who had promised to help, she and her colleague were not available. I will never use MSC for any cruises in the future. Read Less

Trying to find the perfect gift is always daunting, luckily i decided to gift my husband a cruise with the Msc Musica, Upon Arrival at the harbour, There was a que to get into check in and to leave your luggage, each step was even more exciting as its just one step closer to boarding, When we reached check in and all was in order my two kids, husband and i literally ran to the boarding area, We stopped quickly at the refreshments area to grab a drink and off we were ( this was so though full after waiting in the ques, a thirst quench was just what we needed) The music and the friendly staff outside just set the mood, Finally we arrived inside the ship, our passports was taken and immediately we were sent upstairs to get a wrisk band for my 7 year old, so basically this as to be worn by the child throughout the cruise, as it makes it easy to locate which cabin the child is,incase they get lost. As we explored we bought our drinks package and went on the 13th deck for our buffet lunch, this was my favourite spot throughout the cruise haha hence the weight gain, everything was perfectly set up, different types of food, bread rolls, salads, dessert, tea coffee and water is always served. We sat at a table and indulged in our scrumptious lunch btw the buffet is open 20 hours, breakfast lunch and supper, And the pizzas is thee best tasting pizzas ever, Everything is always in order as soon as u done eating theres always someone to clear up ur table. Making it easier for the next person to come in, After eating we went to our cabin to change up and went on deck to do the drill, Finally we set sail, the experience of just leaving was absolutely amazing. Everyone was filled with excitement. We had abit of a confusion with our cabin and illena from reception was the absolutely best, so friendly and she even sent up a bottle of champagne and some yummy snacks for my husband on his birthday. Theres so much to do on the ship but we mainly hung out on the deck as the kids wanted to be in the pool, there is a kiddies and teens club aswell, my 7 year old loved it and still talks about his teachers, they provide activities the entire day for the kids and believe me its so safe. They even take the kids for dinner and it's so exciting for the kiddies, Again the level of quality and security is absolutely amazing these ladies and gents are so patient and caring with the kids, Everything is always in a order, at 8pm every night we were allocated a restaurant which we could dine in, the food is absolutely amazing and our waiter was so friendly and welcoming, the manager if this restaurant was extremely rude and to be honest he was the only bad experience throughout our cruise, The shopping is a must, my husband bought me the most beautiful jewellery and the 4.5 liter drinks is absolutely well worth it, Island day: Day of island was amazing such beautiful experience, u have to get a ticket on board which will tell u what boat number u are, u go to the 4th floor and a boat awaits u, nothing to be scared about again everything is always in order and safe, when we arrived at the island the blue waters and music and views was just breathtaking. There's alot of locals selling stuff so carry some cash, it was extremely hot so we went straight to the buffet, freshly caught grilled fish and the delicious water melons and mangoes was my favourite, A dj and also a live band makes u feel so blessed just to experience this.We spent the day in the water and then finally decided to leave early as we didn't want to wait long with the kids, The boats started loading up and we finally entered the ship again, As we entered there was a gentleman handing us an ice face clothe again very well thought of as coming out from the heat, this ice cloth was a bit of heaven for us, Back to sail and after refreshing up we went on board for some activities. What amazed me was everything was always in order, the staff are all very hard working, A few are abit rude but majority are so welcoming, oh please be careful when buying drinks on the deck, if u not using ur drinks package, we paid 45 dollars for two jack Daniels and two cans of coke, yet at the bar across is was 5 dollars. So always ask the price before you purchase. The theater the night before we left was absolutely amazing we got to see the captain break some moves, so friendly so creative and overall it was definitely the best experience ooooh i forgot to mention i felt sea sick for two nights so make sure u take something and they also provide some tabs at the reception area. Would i recommended this cruise? I will be off my head not too, A lifetime experience, My Kids are still talking about it and my husband says he doesn't no how to top this for my birthday hahahah. Overall I'll be back again Read Less

In the beginning of 2018 we thought it will nice to go on a family cruise. We told the kids and they have been excited since. The thought of being in a big ship like the MSC Musica and being on the ocean was just exciting. Our experience was generally great. Embarkation was a bit overwhelming in the beginning with thousands of people queued up for what seemed like eternity. A big THANK YOU to DEON du TOIT who saw us with a wheelchair. He took us through immigration control, registration and showed us around the ship. He was OUR HERO. He was PATIENT, CARING and made us comfortable. Without HIM, we would have been frustrated and probably overwhelmed by what we would have experiences. So a BIG THANK you indeed to Deon du TOIT. :) MSC, please reward him. The MSC MUSICA staff were very helpful. We, with a disabled child, were looked after very well, given priority pass and places reserved for us, although we always found people who did not need such places already occupying them. We enjoyed the food, there were enough variety and always available. Without proper check, one would eat a lot more than they need. There was sufficient entertainment. Albeit too short in some instances, the stage plays for example. Just as we sit to enjoy the Disney Characters they were finished. Although we had all the help we could get from all the staff members, the excursion at Pomone was just not comfortable. So, I felt traumatised by the experience... Would I go again? Maybe, but not anytime soon. Read Less

Heard about cruise from a friend so therefor we joined them on the next cruise which was on the 02/04/2018 to 06/04/2018. Most staff was very friendly, all meals were out of this world. Watching how the children enjoyed themselves on Deck 11 was amazing and parents just relaxing. How people make new friends like we did and we chat nearly every week. We loved the islands words cannot explain... glad got onto the island early to really enjoy the day and what the island had to offer to each and every one of us. Was heart touching when we could help out by buying things on the island to help the locals. The locals were also so friendly and how they speak English so well. The experience we had on our trip was amazing words cannot describe. I would love to take my children on the MSC Muscia before they leave for England in 2020. This would really make my heart happy and we could really make special memories for ever. Thank you to the Captain and all staff that made our cruise so special.... Read Less

We had done a family cruise in 2007, a cruise with friends in 2014 and this time around it was just my wife and I. No one to slow us down or dampen the party mood so we enjoyed this cruise like a second honeymoon. The service and meals at the restaurants was awesome and the staff across all departments were pleasant and delivered on everything. Retail therapy was a pleasant experience with some really good bargains in the alcohol and perfume departments.I managed to get gifts for my two sons as well as my family. I would like to recommend that the photographic department take advantage of technology as printing the photos is not an ideal digital advantage. Photos could be displayed on all display screens throughout the ship and based on your cabin number you can book your photos and packages and then add it to your basket, this will enable the cost to be more decent and less wastage of printing thousands of photos that end up getting destroyed as costs currently are stupendous.

We chose this one as it is one of longer ones. They have taken away the 7 day cruise so this was the next best. As Mom uses a wheelchair the service to get on and off is allways great. We always go for either balcony or suite cabins as it has the space to use a walker in. We watch the activities and always have a good laugh. The service on the ship is great and the staff always willing to help. We dont go on any of the excursions as Mom uses walker and wheelchair. Would love to bring my grandson kids always look like they are a having such fun. We will be going again as soon as Musica is in our waters. Looking forward to exploring the new ship. I would recommend the cruises to all. Families with kids cant go wrong at the price. Always great to travel with MSC Read Less

it's not wise to combine the group of people Church conferences with special vacation. as this disturb the cruise like us we had payed for the cruise of Portuguese, Pomone and Durban but now because of the church conference you had on the cruise we went to Maputo instead of Pomone and that was not caused by the weather as initial said on our Embarkation. so for this we not happy as the weather was ok at all times of the cruise. hope this will never happen again now that we going to cruise again next year and some of my friends are coming again this year November to the new ship Musica. as this was approved long before we embark and for the whole day stay at Maputo for those church members to come on the cruise it was acceptable at all Hope my request and opinion will be adhere to regards Josephine Mota last cruise cabin number 9080 Read Less

This was me and my daughter's first time on a cruise ship and it was an absolutely fabulous experience on board. The ship was always, always neat, everywhere you go and the cabin was clean every day even the public rooms was also neat and tidy. The service and food was excellent and so many to choose from. There were a lot of entertainment and activities to enjoy throughout the day and night. As well as the security checks and safety drill that was done. So there were really no dull moment on the cruise. The Port and shore excursions was done smoothly and fast, it proceeded with efficient flow and in a speedy manner. We had a great time on Maputo, the Portuguese island and Pomene. It was absolutely exiting and spectacular. Every crew member was friendly and always smiled. Everything was Excellent and I will definitely do it again. Read Less
