Experience of a lifetime, high level of professionalism and excellence. Planning to do it again in 2020. Food was fresh at all times, cabins and bathrooms clean and very well maintained and the level of hygiene is very high. The entertainment and onboard DJ's were always on point. The island was also awesome, well maintained, safe and secure and the shore boats were just another addition to the fun and experience. The only concern was the level of communication for some crew members and maybe if they can improve on the cut off times for the dining hall as I personally feel that fifteen minutes is not enough to accommodate everyone. And the drinks packages are a bit expensive and the parking area was very dirty and dusty and also very expensive for rate that they are charging per vehicle per day. But either than that it was an experience of a lifetime. Thanx! Read Less

This was my 3rd cruise with MSC and I hope there is still allot to come...Everything was excellent, cabins, food and entertainment. The staff was friendly and helpfull and we realy enjoyed the shows. Out of my view there is no option for improvement. The embarkation was quick and easy. Everthing was quickly available on the boat. My kids enjoyed all the daily activities on the deck and we as a family enjoyed the shows. The food at the buffet was excellent and there was a allot to choose from. We also enjoyed the breakfast and supper in the restaurants. The kids enjoyed the nightclub and we enjoyed the casino and lounges on board. Pomene was a great expierience and the beaches is nice and clean. The food on the Island was to die for. Allot of evert was put into it and it was easy accessable. The disembarkation went to quick and before we opened our eyes we were safe back in Durban. Thank you MSC Read Less

This was our 3rd Cruise with the MSC, having cruised on the Sinfonia and Musica 2017 and 2018. The ship was clean, first class entertainment both for adults and my 4year old. We always book the balcony cabin and it never disappoints, big and spacious. The room service was so efficient in delivering our breakfast as we had 2 sea days so we preferred to have breakfast on our balcony. One night my daughter was found wondering on the ship crying within seconds she was brought back to us without causing a scene (had left her sleeping in the room for dinner) The kids club is really addictive as my daughter would wake up and couldn’t wait for us to take her there.... I really wish I were a kid again to experience what she feels. Overall, our vacation was more than worth the money we had spent...and are planning our next cruise for 2020! Read Less

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 easy on board, highly recommended, you dont have to wait for long. I would even prefer easy off boarding during disembarkation. Go earlier for breakfast, otherwise it is going to be crowded. We did not have chances to enjoy the lunch, we were busy with various other activities. You will have other food always like pizza, bread, salads etc. Food is not only provided at buffet area, there are other restaurants supply the same food during breakfast and lunch. Dining alone food menu is different between restaurant and buffet area. For fine dining, they say strict, but its actually not that strict, I have seen people dining in shorts. Read Less

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. Entertainment inboard was good however thank you to the intertainment team. And the performers. Food was good and all the restaurants well well managed and the service and house keeping was on point. I understand that the Ship own by the international company. I think it would do the comp company better if you could be mindful of the price when doing SA tours especially drinks. Over all I was happy and I will surely do it again with MSC THANK YOU.

Excellent I just think that the drink books should be added to you cruise card, because we loose our books a few times because of all the wonderful cocktails :) Children dont want to go off the Boat, was a life time experience for them. Yes Yes I would like to go again. Is it possible for trips from Namibia (Walvis Bay) because air plain tickets are expensive. PI was beautiful. Entertainment is world class. Embarkation and disembarkation do go smoothly, very well organized. Overall good service and our waiter was so nice with children we all loved him so much. Cant wait to get enough money to go again one day. Thank you for the memories Musica. Photos on board are just a bit pricey, I so much wanted more pics. Activities on board are something not to be missed at all. Yes we did explore our departure city before the cruise. Read Less

We traveled from Mosselbay to Durban a view days before we got on to the ship. We stayed in Durban Spa and enjoyed the flea markets and restaurants alot. We also visited Ushaka Marine World wich is always a great experience! We booked easy onboarding tickets(I think that's what its called) so we boarded easy and fast. 10 minutes after boarding we where already eating our first delicious meal on board the Musica! Great way to start our trip...we where still docked at this stage. Our cabin was very nice and we had a balcony that really helped to get our clothes and towels dry during the trip after swimming . The crew was very friendly and helpful! I must say...one of the highlights of our trip was our Cruise Director Eric. He is a great entertainer and it will be difficult for me to not have him as the cruise director if I should go on another mcs ship. We traveled with our children...I think they went with...we never saw them! They enjoyed it so much and although both my children is shy they took part in all the teens activities. We booked a snorkeling excursion which was out of this world! I was flabbergasted the moment I stuck my head in the water.! Most beautiful sights I've ever seen... There is just one thing I think MSC should work on when passengers go on a shore excursion is to have at least water available as soon as the passengers get to shore..one of my friends was feeling very sick and when we asked for something to drink none of the MSC crewmembers wanted or could help us because the bar wasn't open although all the drinks was already there...we only got something to drink an hour and half later and we had to ask one of the locals to please give us water. He managed to convinced someone at a MSC bar in the little town we where driving through they gave us beer and none of us drinks alcohol...afterwards they gave us local water to drink. This part was not a nice experience. However in a whole our trip was amazing! We are already planning our next trip for next year! Thank you MSC! Read Less

I chose the cruise to see whether I have sea legs and I do. Everything about the ship was amazing from embarkation to disembarking. Msc is very organized and focuses on the passengers experience at all times. Msc caters for all ages iro activities on board the ship. Whether you eat at the restaurant or buffet you have many options to choose from. The only complaint that I have is that the halal option is very limited. It can be expanded. Also, the open buffet outside mealtimes should also cater for halal. Muslims have no option but to eat the pizzas. Contamination do take place with the cutting of the pizza and preparing the pizza. I found a peace of ham or pork on the cheese pizza. Luckily I saw it before I took a pizza. Please make more arrangements for muslim passengers. Restaurants should also have warm beverages like coffee and tea on the menu. Instead of the passenger having to go outside to order coffee. Read Less

Bhangra was awesome and the shows were great. Loved the atmosphere. The food the service and the ship was to the tea.loved every minute with my family. I would definitely advise anyone else to go on the msc. It was our first time. I was worried about the weather but it turned out better than expected. Portuguese island was so relaxing and we enjoyed playing in the water. Please msc cater for mutton aswell because we do not eat beef or pork. We mostly ate chicken onboad. We ate not fish lovers. However everything was beautiful. Very efficient in the planning. We received a newsletter every afternoon to know whats happening the next day. The shows were world class. We really enjoyed it. We did experience some motion sickness at first but after the first night it was much better. Thank you so much for this experience. We will be definitely coming back. Read Less

It was my husbands 40th birthday on the 1st and we love bhangra. The dining was amazing. The food was incredibly delicious. Entertainment was 100% incredible. The ship was another experience altogether, it was really amazing. The service by each and every staff member was phenomenol and I would always recommend MSC to all of my family and friends. I would most certainly cruise again. The ports were very quick this time round cruising. My first experience was not too good but his time round, was much better. I travel with 2 kids and they throroughly enjoyed themselves. They would also most certainly cruise again. The kids were blown away with the amazing activities for them and entertainment. My previous experience was in the inside cabin and this time was the partial ocean view. Just a suggestion, that although the room was good, we did not really get any view due to the emergency boats being in the way. So, next time I would prefer a deck or 2 higher. Read Less

Firstly, let me start of by saying that a MSc cruise is something that everyone or every family should go on at least once in their life. As a first time cruiser I did not know what to expect. Let me just say "I had a Mind-blowing experience". Departure time was 15:00pm on Friday March 29th. We arrived at the N-Shed passenger terminal at approximately 8:00am to a small queue of people. On the side of the queue were 2 shops selling coffee, tea, cooldrinks, pizza, burgers, boerewors, rolls, chips, sweets, chocolates, etc. The crew opened the boarding process at 10:00am. Once the line started moving we were greeted by MSc baggage handlers that took our luggage & other MSc staff that told us what documents to have on hand. From here we want to the MSc checkin desk, and thereafter to the Immigration/Home affairs officials who checked & stamped our passports. Quick & effecient. Thereafter MSc photographers took photos of all guests. Passports were taken once on board so they could be presented to the Mozambiqcan Immigration officials. The first thing we did was go the the activities desk to get an armband for my son so he could be identified if he got lost. Thereafter we were directed to the buffet area to have lunch. After we were done with lunch we were free to explore the ship in all its glory. And my word this ship is "Glorious" and of gigantic proportions. The attention to detail is second to none, well designed in every aspect. Opulence, Luxuriousness, Magnificence & Grandeur is the only words I can use to describe the beauty of this work of Art! There is a whole floor of duty free shops selling everything from Liquor, clothing, toys, jewellery, watches & Msc memorabilia. We then proceeded to the top deck whilst we waited for our cabins to be prepared where there were 4 jacuzzis, a kids pool & 2 adult pools. The top floor boasted 4 bars situated on each side of the deck as well as the centre. There is also a whole day buffet inside the top deck. Pool loungers & tables on either side of the ship for guests to relax and take in the ocean breeze. And intercom announcement stated that all cabins were ready for occupation at approximately 13:15pm. Once we had found our cabin low & behold our luggage was outside our cabin doors. The room & the view is stunning for its size. Neat & fresh. Everything smelt clean, considering that people had just departed the very same morning prior to our occupation. It can't be an easy task maintaining a ship of that size that thoroughly with such efficiency. Every day you receive an itinerary that tells you stuff about the island, the ship, shows, entertainment & where its happening as well as specials available at the duty fee shops. Cruise cards which is your personal ship everything card was left on the beds. You use this card to do everything - buy stuff, excursions, bar purchases, etc. The cruise card also states which dining area you go to for supper as well as your table & seat number. You use the same table every evening & you have the same waiter. Prior to supper there was a compulsory drill where all passengers & crew were asked to go to the cabin and fetch our life jackets from the cabin & the proceed to the 7th floor which is deck 7. Just so you know the lifeboats are on deck 7 and no; the ship wasn't about to sink. It was a drill to show all passengers what to do in case of an emergency. Staff were well prepared and on point. We opted for the 18:00pm sitting with a different menu every evening. 3 course meal consisting of a starter, main & desert. Meals were well prepared by master chefs from around the world. Kids also have the option of choosing from their own menu or the main menu. Some always available option are also on the menu. Service is top notch, as waiters are constantly checking on you. You can purchase drinks or cooldrinks at the restaurant. The waiters simply charge it to your cruise card or use your vouchers. Whilst dining were we greeted by waiters selling bottles of alcohol like Jameson & Klipdrift which if purchased came with 3 cans of cooldrink. Being a brandy connoisseur I opted for a bottle of Klipdrift for $37,99 which at the current rate used by MSc for the cruise was R15,14 which worked out to R575. Which is not bad considering I was told that drinks are very expensive on board. And people saying that you must buy vouchers because it works out cheaper. Let me explain - MSc has a drinks voucher for R858 which gives you 18 drinks of your choice like cocktails, whiskey and coke, etc. For me, I drink brandy which made more sense to buy a bottle, actually I ended up buying 2 bottles which when compared to buying a drinks voucher was a waste of time for me. For other cocktail and Pina colada lovers the drinks voucher would have made sense because it works out to about R50 a drink. Which is what you would pay in a nightclub or bar. And the price I paid for the bottle is what you would pay for a bottle of liquor at a restaurant or nightclub. Saturday morning breakfast was the usual variety of bacon, toasts, salads, eggs, juices, fresh fruits & the list goes on & on! One thing food & the variety of it is never short. There's too much. The 13th floor were the top deck is has a buffet area that is operational almost the whole day until midnight. You can have burgers, pasta, hot dogs, pizza, carvery, etc. In fact I cant even remember all the food to mention because there was too many options. After breakfast we went down to visit the Portuguese Island. Once you receive your number you relax in the lounge or explore the shops whilst waiting for your number to be called. Once called you follow a queue to get onto the speedboat after being scanned off. Once on the island there were various market stalls selling everything from alcohol to gifts. The island is uninhabited and only has MSc lounges and buffet areas as well as bars. Food was already ready once we arrived with everything from burgers, chicken wings, cold meats, calamari, fresh fruit, etc. The water was so clear you could actually see the fish. The water was warm and calm. The way back was also efficient. You are scanned back in & given an ice cold hand towel, a relief after being in the blistering sun. You are not allowed to bring any wooden items on board due to contamination. The on board entertainment is great, MSc really has great staff from around the world and there is always something happening somewhere. We attended a theatre show as well as a comedy act. The night prior to disembarkation you are given labels to attach to your luggage. You also receive a disembarkation form that tells you based on the colour of your luggage label which lounge to wait in & what time to depart. The whole process for disembarkation is efficient. All I can say is that from the time I boarded the ship to the time I left "Everything works like Clockwork". Hats of to MSc, from the call centre staff to the crew both on board & off. You guys rock, every interaction with any of you was a pleasant experience. Staff were well dressed and extremely well mannered. Read Less

We had a great time, the theater entertainment was excellent. Eric Brauman & Tyrone were so professional & entertaining. The teams were excellent as well, kept us entertained & occupied. Loved our entire time on board. The food was above average. Budi & Justice, our waiters at L'oleandro, were excellent, attentive & always welcoming. Teatro de Salo was excellent! It was international entertainment at its best! The Mad Hatter for Wonderland & Riverdance, wow! The dancers, the guy on the wheel, the contortionist, Morgana the magician, the 2 muscle brothers & the 3 acrobatic brothers (i don't remember their names!) were out of this world! Jorjio was an excellent meringue teacher, so sexy! Jorge was so good at selling sangria, & he learnt the Afrikaans very well! Room service was excellent! Our cabin was well maintained at all times.

I went with 16 family members. The food, entertainment, crew was fantastic. The cabin and service were excellent. The only thing, which was not the Captains fault, was that we never got to both islands due to the heavy sea swells. But we were entertained well for those two days. The children were well looked after, 6 year old and four year old.And for the older children the disco and fun times were good. We found that the swimming pools and Jacuzzis were very relaxing. The waiters were very friendly and always ready to serve you. The photos that were taken were very professional and the quality excellent. The boughey was very good with a wide variety of foods. You could never get hungry on the ship as there was always something to eat, no matter what time of day or night. And as for the entertainment there were excel;lent shows and game shows. I highly recommend this cruise. This has been my 4th cruise with MSC and will be planning another one next year. Read Less

Deck was a bit crowded seeing that we could not get off on the islands however still loved it. I do feel better planning in buffet area as we queued Very long and then had no table to sit and eat. Really looking forward to our next cruise and hope that we will have the same service! It one staff member I walked passed or saw did nothing - they all worked and did their best to make our experience the best! Loved the entertainment and would highly recommend MSC to anyone so they can experience the same! Oh by the way never knew those ships are so big! It is massive! And so well looked after. Read Less

We have been on a cruise with MSC and wanted to experience it again with our kids. Even though i felt a bit seasick now and again, i would definitely go again. Ship is beautiful and the staff was excellent, lots to do and to experience . Cabin was spacious and beautiful. Unfortunately we couldn't go ashore as the weather didn't permit it, but i value our safety more then missing out on a excursion. Though we missed out on the excursions, the staff kept us busy with shows and entertainment. Food was lovely, i ate way too much, but that is part of the holiday. Our kids loved the experience and there was lots to do for the kids aswell. Pool deck is beautiful and we loved to swim or just lounge and watch the entertainment. We explored Durban after we disembarked from our holiday cruise and we should say that Durban is a city that i would go and visit again. Read Less

So this was my very first cruise. We were booked in a balcony cabin. The whole experience was out of this world, from being welcome by the oh-so-friendly crew member at the entrance, to walking up gold trimmed staircases, to walking past very elegant dim-lit lounges with elegant seats, to the buffet at Deck 13 where food is served from the morning until midnight. Here you have dining options, you can either opt to eat at the classy restaurant where you are treated to a 3 course meal by the very friendly, professional waiters, or visit Deck 13 for a buffet style treat. They kept us well entertained throughout the duration of the cruise, we had karaoke evening, themed party, teambuildings, bingo, quizz, etc. You get to party all night long if the night club is your scene. Their choice of songs caters for different tastes, and the songs are current which i found very interesting. Not forgetting one of my personal highlights, the trip to Portuguese Island. Where you get to lounge in white seats while enjoying freshly made fish and other grills or snacking on some fruits while sipping on cocktails. I got a bit jealous when I saw some people who had brought their children with, there's loads of entertainment for kids. I'll sure bring my own kids on my next cruise. It was 5 star treatment all weekend, i would recommend it to anyone. I absolutely loved it. Thanks you MSC. Shout out to my waiters, Partana and Faizal at the L Oleandro restaurant. Read Less

Getting to the harbour in Durban was a slight delay because of traffic, so get there early in the morning.Embarkation was smooth, just make sure you read all instructions carefully for a smooth process I chose this cruise mainly as it was during the school holidays and it also offered a great first time destination for us to explore as a family. The food on board and entertainment was satisfactory. As a family, we always had something to do. Something for the kids and adults alike. The only thing I would do differently, is choose an outside cabin as the inside cabin was too cramped for a family of four. The room was cleaned daily and was left in a good condition. You also need to read ALL instructions given to you for embarkation, disembarkation and for your excursions, otherwise you will be lost and delayed. Overall a great experience and will definitely do it again with family and friends. I was sad when the cruise came to an end and wished it could be extended for a few more days. Thanks MSC! Read Less

My sister advised us to go on this cruise from Durban to Mozambique. This was our first cruise and I did not know what to expect. What a beautiful ship the MSC Musica was with awesome restaurants and brilliant food, drink and entertainment. The swimming pools were great and it was so weird swimming on a boat, this was a first for me. The cafeteria on the 13th Floor was incredible and it was open 24/7. The food was great and one day we were spoilt with Octopus stew! My boys loved the pizza. Good selection of teas to make. The We went to Portuguese Island and the trouble that MSC staff had gone to, to set everything up was incredible! Our boys thoroughly enjoyed the Mini Club and the ship. We chose the easy onboarding option, and it was worth the money. Everything ran so smoothly and there were no queues. Well worth going on if you get a chance, be it for two or for a family. Read Less

A cruise has been on our bucketlist for 17 years now. And finally we got to experience it. The Musica delivered beyond our expectations. Amazing food, incredible shows and great staff. Even the cabin was bigger than we expected. Being 4 people in the cabin we did not feel propped in at all. The bunker beds still leave enough space for mom and dad to a comfortable rest without feeling Closterfobic. Eric and his team kept us intertained. We missed the comedy show due to exhaustion...lol. would have loved to seen it on another time slot the following day. The shows are good. The storyline could use a few twigs. We had incredible food at the restaurant. We loved the themed evenings. The cafeteria's food was great too. Only negative was having second seating at the restaurant. My youngest kept falling asleep at the dinner table. We did asks to move but no tables were available. Maybe think about people with younger kids when doing the seating chart. After a day of fun 20h30 is very late for dinner. We just took her to an early dinner at the cafeteria before the shows. This has been an wonderful holiday. Read Less

I chose this cruise because my mother did one 45 years ago and since it was my 40th birthday last year we decided to go this year. We also had other family members booked on the same cruise.Was great experience with my mother since we also stayed in the same hotel she did 45 years ago - before embarking - the Elengeni in Durban. The level of excellence extremely high - from the moment we booked and made arrangements the correspondence were quick and professional. We made use of the booking of hotels and transfers. Best decision ever since it were so smooth and no hassles. Our holiday started of on the right foot. We had excellent service in both hotels we stayed in that were booked for us on behalf of MSC Groundservices and we will use the same services again. Our embarkation process ran smoothly and we were on the ship before we even knew - our luggage were ready when we went to our room. The service we had at every lounge were 10 out 10 and during our nightly dinners at our restaurant our waiter Nicolacia from Madagascar were perfect He was very friendly and efficient and knowledgeable about our menus. Loved the evening entertainment and the different lounges with different music acts and the daily bingo and games. Very talented artists on the ship. World class! I loved the fact that every where there were hand sanitation stations to clean your hands. Our cabin with the balcony were amazing and we sat outside watching the waves and even some dolphins one morning. Daily had excellent cleaning of cabin and staff were friendly and helpful when we contacted them for anything.The staff on the ship very professional and assisted to sort out a query with our bill and there were no need to stress. Will go again in future and will start saving immediately for next memorable holiday. Read Less

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
