First Time Cruiser
1-10 of 302 MSC Musica Cruise Reviews for Senior Cruises to Africa from Durban
One reason I choose to Cruise was to have fun and try out new experiences, how is it like to be in a titanic a 5 star moving hotel. The first time you enter the ship the ship smells 5 star and looks 5 star all the way, the decorations inside are amazing you even forget That you are inside a ship. The embarkation que is horrible, you can't wait for a while before entering the ship, and didn't like ...
Heard about the cruise specials offered from work colleagues .
Had never been on a cruise before and thought this trip would be a good idea. Kids still on nappies can be a problem as such is not catered for. Short cruises tend to be a problem as some of the facilities such as the kids day care and activities are only discovered midway through the cruise. Perhaps it would be better if a special ...
We chose this cruise because of the destinations and the price was reasonable.
We cannot express in enough terms how disappointed we were with this ship.
We purchased an Aurea pkg. which included: priority boarding (that did not happen, we were kept waiting on the docks in the sun for nearly 25 mins.
Pkg. also included a 'solarium area' . This area was no different to any other area ...
It was our first cruise experience and we enjoyed it through out. We did not have enough time to even look all parts of the ship. Its huge.
They have lots of entertainments to keep us busy.
Rooms are very neat and compact, cleaning service is 100% perfect. Issues are resolved soon.
Only suggestion is to have some difference in break fast, every day it was same menu repeated.
We did ...
This was my second time on MSC cruise. This time the embarkation was a disaster. But this could have been caused by the bad weather. It took more than 2 hours to board. My daughter was restless and tired.
The ship sailed late and was driven very fast, I think this was to catch up the lost time, this unfortunately made some of us very sick. Which wasn't great at all.
The food/buffet was ...
My family and I we had an amazing time the kids loved it and they were busy through out. We love the cruise. However the price on some items was expensive e.g studio photos.
In general we enjoyed the cruise. The cabin was clean and the house keeping was on point.
The public area pool, bars, kids area and clubs and so on were well managed and the the service was excellent.
The cruise was over populated with passengers. No dining facilities available at breakfast & lunch. By the time you waited for a seat the buffet was closed.At excursions we were treated as if we were in a government facility where we need to stand in long lines. The braai on the Island did not have any proper meat, as per braai. I've been on four cruise thus far and this was the worst. No body ...
We chose this cruise because it left from Durban, South Africa which allowed us to tick off a stay at Kruger National Park as well as a visit to Petra in Jordan.
The cruise embarkation in Durban would have to have been the longest, most shambolic and most disorganised we have EVER experienced.
The staff, apparently (or so we were told) were new. All we can say is that they hadn't been ...
Entertainment & Activities:
We really thought that due to the fact that the ship is called the Musica, it will be a cruise full of music and entertainment. You can't compare the entertainment of the Musica with that of the Sinfonia. On our Sinfonia trip the Entertainment team kept us busy throughout the day and night especially on the deck area. Even the kids entertainment were a lot better on ...
Love cruising. Always take friends and family with. It's a relaxing and enjoyable way to travel.
Love the evening shows and shopping for something special.
The service from the bartenders is sometimes rude
The service from the photo area is very poor,they are simply rude.
The cabin steward in our suite was not helpfull. Towels wher not fresh everyday,as with qall our previous ...
