Was Invited by a friend. Everything was spectacular. More than the first time. Our waiter only warm up to us the final night and the food was great. Love everything. I would only suggest that there would be gluten free options for me. I have celiac decease and cant tolerate gluten. The first night I ordered a steak and it was covered in flour. That was tje only meal I couldn't enjoy. The entertainment was out of this world. Perfect! The cabin was what I expected. Everything was clean. I got lost a couple of times... Well not actually got lost. I lost my friends. The ship is way too big to find someone. Lol I embarkation was extremely fast this time. My first time we waited what felt like forever. The disembarkation as well went smooth. My overall experience was totally out of this world. Will definitely go on a cruise next time my husband will join me. Read Less

My family and I had an amazing time, i had my girls with me and they had a blast. They was always something for them to do and they loved the music and entertainment Our cabin was clean and it was kept that way throughout the cruise, even the kids beds were made for them. My kids loved the food, i had the tastiest ice cream ever and the cocktails were the best. I am always so paranoid when traveling with the girls 7 and 11. But the crew were awesome with them friendly and the answered any question the girls had. They really enjoyed the service and the restaurant they were treated awesomely and they had the best food and desserts. The ship is well maintained and always clean. The embarkation and disembarkation went so smoothly. My luggage was well taken care of. We just got back and are already planning out next one. Read Less

WOW AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I chose this cruise do to the fact that it was the "For Girls Only" with Finesse and needed the brake away Throughout the cruise all embarkation and disembarkation went well. Compliments to all the cruise members - well organised!!!!!! The fact that your photo is taken when you entry the ship and with every disembarkation and embarkation. In overall the ship, cabin, dining, food, drink all were excellent. The staff were all friendly through out the whole cruise and very helpful when you get loss, (which happen a lot). Having your photos taken is a big must and the best memories ever. You can pick and choose from the food and is suitable if you are on a diet as well. We enjoyed the Lounges and the life music and it was so relaxing. Overall it is a awesome experience to be on the cruise I am booking for next year!!!!!! Read Less

The services on the ship are excellent. All staff are very helpful. Cleanliness is the order of the day on MSC Musica. The ship offers a variety of entertainment activities. The drawback however is that most of these activities close at 23:30. The dicso is too small to cater for the number of people. The two swimming pools are small for the number of people. Some of the bigger ships offer an ironing area where guests can iron their own clothing. My partner's dress was delayed which caused us to miss the first dinner sitting and the show which was hosted that night. The cabins on the 11th floor are very spacious and well laid out. The double beds are big and comfortable. The cabin also contains a comfortable sleeper couch. Dining on the MSC Musica is a pleasant experience. The restuarants are well appointed and the food is excellent. Breakfast was however a struggle to find seating space. Most of the staff are very good at what they do and made all passengers feel at home. Some of the staff are however new and experience language difficulties. I visited both Portuguese Island and Pomene. Disembarkation and return procedures were very well organised. I did not do additional excursions. I travelled with my partner without children. I am already planning my next excursion and would recommend MSC Cruises. Read Less

Had a fabulous time on board. Embarkation was very tiring especially for the kids. Once on board we enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The cocktails where delicious as well. Only problem was standing in the long ques to get food and the nice stuff got finished too quickly. The kids enjoyed the kids club thoroughly especially the cooking and parade. Our room was clean and neat and had all that we required. The excursions was very enjoyable and very organised. Loved that everyone could go to the shore from young to old. The disembarkation was very quick and easy. There where too few planned entertainment and activities. The little kids where disappointed that they where not allowed in the disco. We where only disappointed that our suitcases where damaged and dented during our cruise. We would love to go again provided that there is more entertainment for adults, teenagers and kids. Read Less

Sailed with 15 ladies. My first experience, definitely not my last. I enjoyed every moment . I had plenty fun and also my quiet moments , whereby I just sat down and watch the chefs and waiters doing their appointed tasks , amazing -making all those dozens' of pizzas, salads , food , everything so detailed and seeing them doing it with such joy , made me appreciate life, food and my own job. Restaurants are amazing , food is of excellent good quality . I find the food (including , veggies , fruit and salads )to be very healthy, and tasty. the children clubs were also amazing, ( my grandson will definitely join me on the next cruise!)The youth entertainment was amazing, fun, energetic, I just had a ball joining in. The cruise rekindled that youthful, energetic, grateful feeling in myself . I also enjoyed the island visits, On the island-POMENE- my heart went out to the kids begging for food whist we had plenty to eat ( IT WAS A HUGE CHALLENGE ) Thanks to this cruise , I overcame my fear of sailing Much appreciated Will be back soon!

the 2 stop-overs at Portuguese Island and Pomene Islands made this trip exciting. I can safely say i loved Pomene Island more than anything else...the white fine sand and the shady coconut trees make the island full of life. we never had hassles embarking or disembarking because we always had offers to get priority service (in addition to the excellent en suite cabins topped with a balcony). lots of activities ie the pool games and parties, music in the magnificent lounges, theatre performances and night parties. Oh and not forget the Photo gallery where you catch the best picturesque moments on board. Those photographers really know their job hey. Always had a hard time choosing what to take and leave. we loved having our food at the buffet mostly rather than restaurant and i have no complaints on the abundance of food. The icing on the cake was dressing up to meet Captain Ciro Pinto. Hats off to you Sir. Great service from EVERYONE!! Read Less

Because MSC is leading Cruise lines in the world, 1. Well known WORLD WIDE 2. Professional Staff 3. Unique Cruises and incomparable 4. Affordable and worth the price. 5. Healthy Foods 6. Cruise always cleaned 7. Professional and kind receptionist 8. Good entertainment 9. Once you enter inside The Cruise you simply feel like you're in Other world 10. The only thing i wasn't convinced is dismbarkation prosigure, the daily programme showed that everyone will meet at deck 6 then we'll instructed by the crews, unfortunately there wasn't any crew member, we sit down at deck 6 while people were disembarking from deck 5.. and no announcement were made, 11. Language area there was only one crew member but not control making sure that everyone takes the right language, according to the cabin numbers.. 12.

My first experience on the cruise was excellent. The staff all over was great, especially Maria in the Tucano lounge. The theatre was fantastic and entertainment staff was great! My favourite was the transfers to and from the islands. We however had a few niggly irritations. We opted for easy on board, but after exiting the immigration officer a bottleneck occurred just before we boarded the ship. This is the section where the pictures were taken. A space needs to be created for passengers to go through who isn't interested in taking pictures. The other issue was that some passengers on the ship had no manners and was unruly. This occurred daily. It is advisable to have staff behind the counters at the buffet section on the ship and on the islands where the dishing of the food can be controlled. At the buffet section on deck 13.. People were dishing stacked plates of food which left the rest of us only with pizza, burgers, chips and hot dogs. On the Portuguese island we didn't get any meat only a piece of sausage...people were walking with plates stacked with meat and thereafter we would see the untouched wasted meat. The restaurant was fantastic. I loved the fine dining, however we waited too long in between courses and this occurred the whole week. The luggage at disembarkation needs to be more controlled as it was chaos...My review is to make MSC aware on how to make the experience enjoyable for everyone. Lastly I would recommend the cruise to anyone as it was a great overall experience. Read Less

I really enjoyed the cruise. There was alot of activities for the young and the old. The food was great and was alot of variety to choose from. The one thing i didnt like about the food was the lack of healthy options. Our waiter Budi was great and provided us with great service. The public bathroom were always full or out of order and i found myself having to leave deck 13 to go to my room to use the bathroom. I also think that the gym should be opened before 6am as breakfast starts at 7am and there are alot of activities to do during the day. I was also disappointed with the communication levels, eg when we got in the boat the staff did not communicate the importance of reading the daily criteria and how to read it. More especially for new or first timer goers. Overall experience: Was great. Value of money indeed Read Less

We had a lovely time on the cruise. I particularly loved the attention to detail, the professionalism with which everything is run and managed - schedules, communications, general respect and courtesy by staff members! The fine dining was also a key highlight for me, as well as the cleanliness of the cabins - far better than some 4-star hotels! It was just extraordinary!! Everything is well planned, there is a variety of activities for all ages - there is never a dull moment! The entertainment is well thought out across the various areas and spaces. The food was also great - especially the dinner though the bigger restaurant sometimes had a very limited variety of food. The excursions can be improved though as there is not much to see at Pomene, for instance except the hotel ruins - maybe a village tour or something exciting will do, though the quad bikes offered a youthful alternative for the excursion.

I know the sinfonia and I was excited to experience the musica. I have been on the sinfonia 4 times. My mom went once. I surprised her with this trip and she loved it. I was delighted to get a balcony suite for the first time ever. For that I thank you so much. The value for money was like no other and well appreciated It was the most beautiful experience that mom and daughter could have. The service has declined a bit but the revamp on the island and the musica itself made up for the overall decline in service. I was concerned by the drunk teenagers on-board and I would like the MSC to take this matter seriously and have stricter control measures for teenagers drinking alcohol on board as in South Africa it is illegal for teenagers to consume alcohol. A lot of schools send their teenagers on-board, this should come with a strict no drinking rule and stricter control measures such as getting rid of all teenager from the night club after 10. Alcoholism is a serious disease. A teenager can experience alcohol for the first time on the ship and never stop again. Can the MSC also do something about the food waste. That will give you the budget for other areas and to add more south african chefs who will cook real braais on the island and Indian food as we know it. It will even allow for more free consumables such as juice. Please get rid of the huge plates that cause waste. The smaller the plate the more controlled the portions. Human beings tend to dish up according to the plate size and not the appetite, no matter how big the plate is. Overall the experience on the musica is better and the food has improved. The addition of the fruit stands in the dining rooms and the island was such a great idea. The pizza stand on the island is also great. I love the musica and I will be coming 3 times this year. I also tell a lot of people about it on all my social media platforms. Read Less

I chose this cruise so that i could spend my Birthday with some friends. i had a fantastic stay on board even though i did not go to the Island as one of my friends was not well. the staff , 10/10, the food was great, the service excellent. The facilities on board caters for anyone, young and old. there are places on board where you can relax and listen to music. game shows, Karaoke, dancing, Entertainment. you name it they have it. I had a small problem which was sorted and they apologised by sending me a bottle of bubbly and some snacks. i even received a birthday card. I will definitely go again. This was my 3rd time on board MSC. The only downside are the long queues for passport checks :). i danced the night away. i ate tooo much on board. The crew and staff are very well organised and groomed. i would like to book again for 2020 on board the MSC Orchestra. The ship is BEAUTIFUL. well done MSC. Read Less

WOW MSC. What a blast we had. From entering the harbour, then the shed onto the ship via "easy onboard". From entering the ship throughout and up to disembarking was absolutely fantastic.The absolute highlight was leaving harbor with the horns "sending" us on a exciting voyage. We could listen to this over and over again and never get bored with that sound. All staff was friendly and courteous. The entertainment another big compliment as they were great. Food and drinks excellent. The trip to Portugese islands was such fun and the day spent so refreshing and relaxing whils sipping a fitting Mozambique cocktail of Rum & Raspberry - our names reflected and suited us perfectly. Enjoying island life( if only for a day), and wishing it could last forever. PS: think you made us "Cruise Addicts", as this was our first cruise but not the last.

With my hectic and busy work life this date was ideal and it was over week-end so no one from work would miss me for work duty. :) The best experience ever, from the starting point by bag drop went smooth up to the first step on to the MSC MUSICA. The embankment and dismemberment at the two beaches very good organized. The entire cruise was an experience that we will not forget. From check-in, embarkation ,on board reception, Island visit, the boat ride and to sad end and disembarkation . The Musica is an incredible ship and masterpiece of design The cabin was superb and comfortable. The dining was exquisite The entertainment was fresh with highly talented artist that were very professional The staff on board and on land were very friendly and helpful. I travelled with my 16 year-old teenage son and he was over the moon. We cannot wait to go again but a long time perhaps 4 nights and 4 days. Excited to go on new MSC Bellissima or the MSC Orchestra Please send me a complimentary cruise. We are ready go again! Bon Voyage! Read Less

Amazing experience for our Family Holiday. The Ship was clean and tidy at all times, Housekeeping staff were friendly and always greeted. The Entertainment Crew was nothing short of amazing and fun. My 8 year old attended the Kids Club where he was greet with hugs and fun activities by all staff - Sizwe and Charlie are exceptional Kids Club crew members. Onboard activities on the pool deck were fun to join in or just to watch. The disembarkation to the Island and on return home was a breeze. Cabin was suitable for our family of 3. The Buffet restaurants had something for everyone all day. All staff encountered along the 4 days were pleasant and friendly. The bar and seating set up on the Island was a huge improvement from our last cruise, the food was great. The theatre shows were entertaining and enjoyed by all. My son absolutely loved the Pool Deck Ice-Cream. The Restaurants and Bars were kept clean at all times, even with the amount of people coming and going all day. We will definitely cruise with MSC again! Read Less

Embarkation was very long and tedious, but understandable as we had to go through passport control. Disembarkation was much faster. Explanations are not always very well explained, especially the fact that you have to zero your cruise card otherwise you will not be let off the ship, personally I feel that your visa card should be re-imbursed and the passenger should not stand in a queue for hours to get their monies refunded. If you only have US$1.00 on your card your have to queue, even if you choose not to get the money refunded, besides most banks will not even exchange as the denomination is too small and the cash fees too high. The coffee at the stations was absolutely horrific - it does not even taste like coffee, from the barrista it is divine, but you have to pay for it. Shore excursions we did, did not fulfill their promise in Pomene, it said that you will receive a fruit platter, we got a skewer, and a drink - being on holiday on the island, I did not expect a soft drink, and the other drinks were the furthest walk from the loungers, and for R345 per person I think it was not worth it. On the ship everything was absolutely stunning would do it again, the entertainment was awesome. The entire staff on the ship was so friendly and helpful. I would do this tour anytime again.

I choose MSC Musica because of what the ship had to offer sounded very attractive. The look off the ship and structure captivated me .The overall experience from the food to the staff were exceptional. The fine dining experience was one of a kind ,being graced with such humour loving and passionate waiters made the our time there worthwhile.The cabins were well kept on a daily basis which I was pleased about. The island pomene and the shows were breathtaking and was the highlight of my vacation. We were given the oppurtunity to meet and be seated to such an amazing family. Also the emabarkation and disembarkation processes were well planned out and executed. This ship gave us diversity from the people to the cuisine. I simply loved everything about this cruise ship. I will definitely be doing many more trips with the MSC family. Thank you to all involved for making it an unforgettable experience. Read Less

This was our first cruise - a dram coming true after more than three decades. The overall rating is 11/10. Please allow us to highlight some points: 1- the theater shows. The second night show was by far the best of the week. The theater is a beautiful area, well designed and the quality of the shows brings it to life. 2- the personnel. I need to highlight three staff members who rendered a five-star service. The first will be Ms Padayachee at reception. Not only did she remembered our names, but her friendly service made the "finding our way around the ship" easy. Please give her a thank you from our side. The other two ladies are Me Irjana Bicja and Me Marienel Iglesia, both Barwaitresses. They served as as if we were royalty! A huge thank you to them. They deserve a promotion! :) 3- the management staff. Me Eliana Leuenberger is the employee of the year. Thank you to her for the friendly smiles and assistance; irrespective the 'stupid' questions we asked over and over again. 4- the overall experience. All we can say is WOW, you know how to treat customers and you know how to make us feel at home. We have already booked our trip for 2020! Read Less

MSC offers the perfect holiday away from technology. We definitely needed that escape. Easy onboard is definitely the way to go, we were onboard in minutes. We thought the security system is very good. The staff are well informed, friendly and helpful. Our waiter, Edi, was just excellent! He made us feel at home and relaxed. Lots of laughter and 5 stars to him for naking my daughter feel special. We loved the Italian evening, what a send of. The entertainers in the different lounges were very good. Our friends and us all enjoyed the different styles of music. It was very relaxing to sit and listen to them, nursing a cocktail or more. The zodiac trips were awesome. Even though some got rather soaked on the way. Part of the fun. The shows were not to our taste, but others seemed to have enjoyed it. Can not wait for the next cruise... Read Less

I chose this cruise because it was a Woman's day promotion and offered the excellent savings. It also coincided with Valentine's Day 14 02 2019 so it gave me an opportunity to take my partner on a holiday that she'd never forget. It was exceptional, everything was just perfect from the moment we arrived at Durban Harbor. I can truly say it was a worthwhile experience for us both and we would not hesitate to go on another MSC Cruise ship. We would love to do one of the Caribbean or Mediterranean trips. We have already encouraged quite a few people to do the same cruise as we dis and everyone we have spoken to has been really jealous and promised they will experience the same as us by definitely going on the cruise with family and friends. One thing that needs to be looked at is the number of staff available at the bars during the onshore excursions. We got back to the ship early and it was really frustrating trying to get bar service on the pool deck area. Read Less

I chose this cruise as I always wanted to do so but was never able to because of work and family commitments, mu only regret is that I did not do the cruise sooner :(. We embarked on the 11 February 2019, remember to get to the embarkation port a earlier to avoid standing in long queues, the crew assisting with the embarkation was very efficient and directed us in a well manner, the entertainment also kept the queue occupied...it was amazing to see the elderly and disabled being assisted immediately. I did not book the trip so I was not aware of the "Easy On Board" system which allows quick embarkation for a fee, next time I will make use of this service. MSC makes this cruise exciting beginning to end with the photographs which can be purchased on board. I was amazed at the luxury of the ship as we entered, the welcome by the employees and the continuous reminders of what is required and the friendly smiles deserves a "thumbs up" Collection of vouchers (Drinks, water, etc...) which can be purchased with your booking was easy , also note that vouchers can be purchased on board as well. It is advisable to purchase the vouchers as part of the cruise package... I was a bit disappointed with the cabin being small but as I previously stated I did not book the cruise and will definitely book a cabin with a balcony on my next cruise.. The housekeeping service is excellent as the cabins were cleaned out twice daily. The Buffet is excellent with a huge variety to choose from and also includes a Halaal food station. The dinner at the restaurants was also good with also an option of a Curry menu for the spice lovers. The service from the waiters is exceptional The one thing that I most enjoyed was the entertainment and activities especially the world class daily shows at the theatre. The show at the theatre must not be missed by anyone... The Port and shore excursions was awesome, I would recommend that you book your seating spaces etc...with your cruise package, once again I was not aware....but will definitely do so next time. Also get your tickets to the islands early instead of waiting after breakfast to really enjoy the islands. Pomene was extremely hot, the one negative was the water package at Pomene we received 1x 500ml water instead of the 1.5 lt water which is purchased on board, MSC should have taken a decision to sell 2 x 500ml of water if they did not have 1.5lt.... Getting back to the ship was a nightmare due to standing in queues in the heat and passengers cutting the lines claiming their family were already in line and the crew did had poor control over the passengers and whom were next in line...there should definitely be a drinks station at this area for passengers to purchase water etc.. whilst in the queue. I love reading and the ship has a library but with limited selection of English books...this could be improved. Overall experience was 10/10...I loved every minute of the cruise and proud to say I have been bitten by the "Cruise Bug" and am already planning my next trip.. Well Done MSC Musica for a beautiful experience..... P.S....the ship cruise is for partying and having fun...... Read Less

Highlights I chose MSC because ever since I have started every time i become more crazier to take a cruise. This was my third time because I love the atmosphere, I love the hospitality and I just love being part of this family because everything is being done on professionally and efficiently on board. I should really say Musica is indeed a beautiful baby. Spacious cabins and very attractive scenery. Embarkation was a little longer but there was a valid reason which was a a result of load shedding which was beyond anybody's control. Otherwise the excitement killed the thought and waiting was no problem. From my previous experience there is normally no problem as far as that is concerned. It was only when we came back that I noticed somebody not being happy about her luggage because she could not find it. It was a little odd as I never heard of that ever since i started boarding the ship. Maybe there should be a checking point where security checks that people do take the luggage that truly belongs to them. The lady was causing an unnecessary scene drawing attention. Thank you for serving food that makes one to yen for more. The food is being served with love. Thank your kitchen team for looking after us. It is by choice to eat unhealthy but you surely do cater for everybody to eat a healthy meal. The plays are always exquisite. Thank you very much entertainment team you were just wonderful. Your costumes are always out of the world and everything becomes real. One of my highlight is this that I got to dance with one of the officials and that made my cruise the most enjoyable. Chilling around the pool more especially when there are activities is also most enjoyable experience. I love being on the Portuguese island. I love the water as well as the atmosphere around the island. It is more accommodating. The setup as well as the moving around all the activities are people friendly. Please make some improvements at Pomene as well or rather bring back the excursion of going into Maputo and cancel Pomene. I personally did not find the place enjoyable. The hot sand is unbearable, the limited space makes it very unpleasant for the people who came later and did not have any shelter to be under. The footpath leading to the beach could be at least outlined properly with wood material or so. Please take this matter seriously as it really was a low light as far as the excursions are concerned. Thank you very much for the great time that we had on the ship. The service from the people cleaning the cabins as well as the the waiters, not forgetting the personnel you meet around the ship who always are willing to help. How can I forget the teachers who so wonderfully look after our children and make their time a memorable. That gives mummy and daddy ample time to enjoy being on the ship without any hassles. My grandson was always reminding us not to forget that it is time for him to be dropped off. This is a lifetime experience as it really awakens the child in me. I would never miss an opportunity to go on a cruise. I intend cruising at the end of December to Mauritius and will share that with my sister. Read Less
