Everything is excellent, the staff is so professional, the team is so organised, they always ensure that they maintain their goal i.e. making sure that everyone is entertained to the best of their ability. Professionalism is their key word. The food everyone is catered for e.g. those who prefer healthy diet they are catered for and those who like junk food are also catered for. We all know that cleanliness is next to God so the place is always clean the cabins, dining halls and even the entertainment areas, for an example their swimming pools. Communication is very key, they always update you about the activities of the day, there are programmes to remind you about everything happening on the boat. what I enjoyed most it was the dinner time, the service was excellent, you and your family are allocated a waiter to service you. The food on the is out of this world. I will definitely recommend to my friends to go on vacation on MSC boat cruise. Read Less

This was my first cruise ever and I honestly had no idea what to expect! Well I can say that the entire experience was fantastic, from the quickness of boarding to the food to the staff! Absolutely everything was superb. I had the nicest housekeeping man looking after our cabin, which I shared with my gran. He was friendly and informative and I am so glad to have had someone as nice as him around! I got lost multiple times on board and found a map of the entire ship as I was leaving but honestly it was actually kind of fun getting lost because I got to discover different areas of the ship that I might not have gone to ordinarily. The food was something else, if I had the stomach space I would have gone back for second and third helpings! I highly recommend trying everything because you can and because it's too good to not try! I only got to see one show and on my last night but wow, what a show it was!!! The dancing and aerobatic performances were incredible! They had us laughing, amazed and in the end we were absolutely in awe! I would highly recommend seeing a show every night! During the excursion we took a little boat off to the second island for seafood and this did not disappoint! We stuffed our faces with prawns and other seafood and then washed it down with R n' R's before heading back to the first island to float in the beautifully flat swimming pool like ocean and shopping and then back on the boat. I am sad to be home but so glad to have experienced as much as I could in the 3 days I was aboard! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone! Read Less

This was a 1st time experience for my family and I, the service was amazing from the itinerary every morning to the meals and entertainment. Our cabin 9115 was basically a hotel room with a balcony always cleaned, must have been done twice a day. The ship itself was amazing so much to do yet so little time. Really enjoyed the Portuguese island especially the way it was done, the protocols used for the passengers to disembark & embark was brilliant well organised. I actually entered the Michael Jackson quiz and ended up dancing with the lady that was the coordinator for the show, crowd was going crazy, that was one of my highlights. On the 17th of March was my wife's birthday and what an experience we had on the Musica when we were dining the waiter even sang Happy Birthday as well for my wife, but I must add that our dinning at table 512 (2nd seating at 20h30) the waiter(Santanna) was extraordinary 5 star rating for him. The overall experience on the MSC Musica for me is definitely a 12 out of 10.. Well done guy's I hope to see you soon.. Addio, Paalam, 再见, Au revoir, adiós, totsiens, tofa & Goodbye.. Read Less

We had heard so much about Cruising being the right way to have a family holiday and we chose the MSC because our travel agent recommended it for our first experience. We decided to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday on the MSC as a gift to him as a family holiday. Durban as a departure city is known to us, and it was lovely to see the harbour on the beautiful morning we departed. We did have a little bit of a hiccup at departure - my niece Amy didn't have an abridged birth certificate (she had an application for it, it was not ready at time of travel) and so she could not board with us. She was left in the safe custody of family who reside in Durban, but this delayed our boarding did put a damper on our first afternoon aboard. The welcome and the staff on boarding the ship were excellent and very friendly...we were however not in the right frame of mind (after having to leave my niece onshore) to meet a sales person with drink package vouchers as soon as we boarded and I am afraid to say that he was greeted with our dismal no to any suggestions...no his fault I am afraid. We found our cabins, clean and well appointed. Everyday after the cabins were maintained and kept in clean order...The cleaning staff were always very pleasant, helpful and very accommodating. We really enjoyed the experience of sitting down for formal meals and also having the choice of self service - this broke the monotony of having just one choice. The food was really good, fresh and appealing, and the variety was impressive. The desserts and cakes at breakfast, lunch and supper were superb. The one thing that we struggled with was boiling water for tea (the water was hot, but not hot enough to steep a tea bag) and getting hot milk at the tea areas, but if asked the Staff they were really helpful to arrange this. One suggestion if I may, there were water dispensers on deck 13 only in the Restaurant...it would be great if there were water dispenses on each deck...until one is familiar with the drinks packages and how they work, one is sort of stuck for a basic need for hydration. We were all thrilled at how much there was to do aboard the ship, the programmes presented each day catered for young and old. We loved the variety shows and quizzes and the demonstrations to educate ones self with activities like food carving and flower arranging, the games and the music entertainment in the various different lounges. The staff onboard were ever ready to assist and point you in the right direction and never minded to help. The evening Shows were really world class and we enjoyed it immensely, we went to all :). I was super thrilled that the Shows were suitable for young and old. We travelled with my 7 year old twin and we discovered the Children's facility on the second afternoon of our cruise. The children's programme was excellent and we loved that there was such good security around their safety. I loved the fact that ship had a Library onboard and the children and I visited to take full advantage of facility. They loved the Adventure of being on board and the Children's Club most, pirate treasure hunts, food activities, taking part in shows, birthday parties, dress up and like activities, it was all wonderful. One comment if I may though,children between 3 to 5, 6-8 and 9 to 12 should be in separate groupings for entertainment, their interests and level of capacity is different...my children were grouped with Children from ages 3 years to 11 years, they sometimes got lost with what was expected of them, follow the babies or follow the older ones and on one occasion a bigger boy called my son a stupid, my son was able to respond with, that's interesting, that is not what my Mum calls me :) my name is Tait. Both my children were not happy with the children's pool, it was too shallow, suitable for toddlers and the big pools were too busy with Adults and bigger kids but this they overcame with all the other activities they engaged in. The service we received from all staff onboard was excellent, we had problems with our cabin door when we boarded and Diego helped get it sorted and after that sent us a complimentary sweet plate for the inconvenience, this really stood out as appreciation for us as guests and every time after that when we saw Diego he would call us by name and enquire on our wellbeing, we felt really special and looked after, right up until we settled our bills on departure. The excursion to the Portuguese Island was such a surprise highlight, the way in which the MSC provide for this experience is exceptional...I have never been on an island holiday, but this short experience left a lasting standard of impression of how this should be...definitely the cherry on the top of this cruise holiday. Most organized and pleasant experience in any transfer that I have experience from one space to another - and to be able to do this for so many people and make sure all are comfortable and taken care of is most impressive. We want to go again :) !!! we have already spoken to our travel agent and are making enquiries for next year to go to Mauritius, unfortunately your Family Cabins are already booked :( so must consider this for the following year. Thank you MSC and all who make such a wonderful experience possible - you certainly gave this Family memories to last a life time :) Read Less

We have travelled with MSC before. But this time we had our two kids with us. 3yr 3month old & 5 yr old. Both embarkation & disembarkation was smooth especially with two little kids. The ship is majestic and caters for all age groups. Our cabin was on the 12th floor, always neat n clean. We dined at belle epoque. Fabulous food n our waiter Mohammad al Saif was very professional & attentive to our requests. The theater shows were extraordinary n suitable for kids. Doremi team was absolutely G8 with the kids. Our itenary included Portuguese n pomene islands but due to bad weather we stayed at Portuguese island only , a bit disappointing cos we paid for pomene as well but couldn't go. The entire crew was polite and helpful. Only disappointment was that there are no family toilets in the public areas. Taking little kids to adult bathrooms are difficult. MSC can improve on that. Nevertheless excellent trip. Will definately travel again with our kids. Read Less

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

Awesome experience excellent waiter. Had a wonderful time and the weather was great. Excellent and fast embarcation and disembarkation. Will recommend a lot of people for this affordable holiday getaway. Not the first time cruising with MSC but must say MSC musica was the Best so far! When you leave the cruise ship you feel like you are part of a family a very big family. I wish I could meet that waiter we had he was the best and made my day every night when we went for dinner. The food was absolutely WOW something you don't see in every kind of cruise. The entertainment on the ship was something out of the ordinary the shows every night in the theater was grate like it was trained for years. This will definitely not be the last time cruising with MSC and there will be plenty coming in the future. . Congratulations MSC with the launch of your 17th ship! 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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

I am encouraging all my friends and family to go on one of the MSC cruises. It is truely value for money entertaining a great experience.The food was well divine. I would go on a MSC cruise any time instead of booking a holiday at a hotel where you still had to worry about meals. The drink packaging that you can buy online before the trip really adds that extra value for money. The staff are friendly and always have a smile on the faces and willing to assist you with anything. The baristas was most friendly of all. I was also very impressed with the upgrade of the Portuguese Island, so much better than when i visisted in 2011. Thank you MSC for the amazing memeories Read Less

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 ship is huge and full of surprizes when you walk through it every day a new chapter opened you have to discover the ship. Cabin with balcony a pleasure if you leave the glass door open the sound of the sea is almost inside your head. Always clean and the cabin staff friendly and always willing to assist in any matter. Every evening the bed is pulled back so you can just hop in felt like a 7 star hotel on water. cleanness of the cabin also very neat. Dinning we only used the buffet which are awesome the food were fresh and hot and nothing short plenty of all. The deck facilities were very good organized and a pleasure we had great enjoyable time on the MSC MUSICA looking forward to the next one Read Less

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

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

Great entertainment for my 8 year old daughter, she thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the entertainment provided and was kept fully occupied which gave me some alone time to enjoy the cruise myself. I had a balcony room so that was exciting as well. I will have to give their food a 4/10, the quality and the selection of food is deteriorating. I feel we are getting ripped off by the fact that all drinks are not included in the overall price of the cruise Smooth check in procedure though had to wait for over an hour to get to the parking which caused a slight irritation but once parked, we literally whizzed through and once checked, we found our room ready and lunch ready for us. I think the emergency drill has room for improvement............ Oh!.... Nearly forgot prices for redeeming your pictures is ridiculous and MSC needs to review urgently as you might be working at a loss with all those picture's not redeemed.. Read Less

I chose to cruise because it is something that my mom 64yrs always wanted to do. We had a blast I was cruising with a toddler 5yrs, teen 15yrs and an elder 64yrs me 30yrs. for all of us we had something to do. entertainment no.1. the mini Juniors club my kid loved it. The food on the ship out of this world. The ship is beautiful you would actually forget you were inside a vessel. It was like a 5 star hotel, I felt like a celebrity on that ship. I do wish I could have ordered a balcony cabin but even the inside worked next time balcony. the gym I enjoyed the most, the most beautiful gym I have seen at some point I felt like I was in the dance studio. Entertainment and bar team for MSC Musica 04/02/2019 -08/02/2019 y'all deserve bonuses world class service, food team great food I loved pizza the most. Read Less
