Everything was excellent...entertainment, food, shops, cabins whers clean. I wish i can come again..i enjoyed Music was nice, breakfast including lunch and dinner was healthy and good. Customer care inside the ship was also good. Shopping areas, service was good, remember this was my first time in the cruise, inside the ship it was the same as i was in the mall, disco time, activities etc, i really enjoyed I never sleep because of rhe entertainments, i ate diffent fruits and fortunately i found my favourate water melon, and that was my favourite. But soft drinks were expensive. And i thought i will gain weight as people told me about food for everytime but i didnt because your food was healthy. Overall i rate Msc musica cruise excellent. Please sent me your special price so that i can come again. It was so nice even in Portuguese island. Thank you Read Less

It was my first time I embark on Msc cruise were I realized Msc is the only cruise with a lot of entertainment ,on board and offshore .i chose MSc because I had been gallivanting a lot using a different mode of transport such as trains, flights touring to different places so the other day I thought of touring to other different places using a different mode of transport ,that’s when I thought of Msc cruise .my experience with Msc cruise was awesome, unbelievable , everything was so perfect starting from a warm welcome on board , beautiful cabins clean and fresh , not forgetting 24 hours room service and extraordinary service offered to all people on cruise regardless of their race,gender, religion .As for activities they were galore, restaurants so appetizing,their food were so perfect you got to choose what type food you want to eat whether you are a vegetarian or not everyone was accommodated. For fitness there was a gym with a lot of equipment for exercising, 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

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

We chose to do a cruise to celebrate my birthday and many blessings that have come our way. It was our first time on a cruise Oh what an experience of a lifetime! The boarding process was unbelievably smooth, and the MSC staff at every point made us feel like real royalty. They were professional and helpful. The birthday cake was out of this world, and the short ceremony made me feel like I was the only Lady of the moment! Manager Antonio on the 6th deck restaurant that day, made sure that the birthday dinner went superbly. The inside of the cruise is just out of the ordinary and you feel like you own a palace for the few days that you are on board. Being a person with dietary requirements, the MSC Kitchen was on point to see that I eat the right kind of food. I have recommended the experience to family members and friends. I will do a cruise again, to Northern Europe, Carribbean or Asia. Read Less

We had an amazing time during our stay on Costa Victoria mainly because of the nice friendly and helpful staff. We travelled with our 7 year old son who was treated like a Prince by all staff on the ship but mainly the animation team and kids club. Ferdy and Sara were exceptionally good with him, most of the staff is Italian nd most of the guests were French spraking but they all made my son included and welcomed. I was happy my son made so many friends even though he can only speak Polish and English, the language is not a barrier he loved his time in the kids club. The animation team work so hard, special thanks to Ralph who was the kindest person on the ship, Francesco the sports instructor and crazy Marco. The staff at the restaurant were incredible as well and made up for the bad food at times. Donna the waitress is so lovely and helpful always smiling. The exurcions are terribly expensive, it's much cheaper to get something on the land. WE MET SO MANY nice people on the ship and on the land and visited hidden gems and that's what we are grateful for. The food, drinks packages and service charges are things we want to quickly forget about ;) Thank you to the staff of Costa Vicortia who made our journey so special Read Less

Awesome family getaway as a family we enjoyed every second . The kids were entertained at all times although they never went to the kids clubs, the kids club carers were always on hand and doing fun activities with the children. Pools were well kept and area around pool was comfortable. Clean towls was available daily.All the shows were included and even the children could enjoy them, a special children show was arranged . The Islands were well equipped and lots to do very well organized although we did not do any excursions we would definitely consider it for the future. Embarktion and disembarktion was well organized .Standard food for us but more than enough to eat at all times. The crew was fantastic always friendly and helpful. MSC will be my first choice in future cruises and would enjoy longer cruises in future and maybe make use of a balcony room for 4 people. Rooms were cleaned daily and gym was good Read Less

I wanted to explore Durban since i'm from Johannesburg. so a cruise after exploring Durban Beach was a perfect way to relax and explore other countries at the same time. It was my first time to see a ship and enter what a wonderful experience, the cabins are family friendly to share with children i would advise others to book early to get cabins that have windows to be able to see outside the ship, make use of Restaurants to experience 5 star treatment , attend all daily activities and most importantly travel with your family including children its a wonderful family experience and creates happy and unforgettable memories. I'm definitely going to Namibia for my next cruise. The service of all employees in the ship is outstanding, they always willing to help when requested. Ports and shore employees were also friendly and vigilant for our safety and made us comfortable and able to trust them with our lives. Thank you thank you and thank you for an awesome time.

Enjoy all inclusive smaller ships. Spirit going in for a face lift and expansion so will be even nicer ship when completed. Cabins are larger than most... dining experience at lunch is excellent... dinner choices are less appealing. Excellent entertainment. Overall service is outstanding. The ports on this itinerary were very disappointing...but sea days were excellent. Fitness center is very small and poorly laid out... equipment faces the wall...and the TV's and audio were not working. Not really a family cruise...mostly senior adults.. romantic atmosphere. Venetian Society has a couple advantages, discounts, cocktail reception... but given the fact liquor is included for the cruise ...cocktail reception isn't really a perk. As with other cruise lines, if you book another cruise while on board, there's an additional discount... which we wanted to take advantage of but we waited until the last day and the consultant on board was busy with other guests so we missed the opportunity for a 10% discount.

I went with my wife and the four brothers we were only disappointed by not reaching Pomona as i were looking forward to swim in that pure and still waters. partying at the different place for a change it was our ideal desire unfortunately it didn't happened and they were actually blaming me that i encouraged them to come and taste the fun only to find out that it wont happen. myself I will plan again, Read Less

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

1.excellent ship with nice people who can help. 2,nice food. things which need to be changed are try to avoid long ques by introducing min receptions in eac dec.smoking should be total restricted indoors except on dec 11 open part. Embarking into the cruise it took me 3 hours to pass immigration. At the reception almost 1hr , these ques should be minimised by having more embarking points. Each Dec should have 1 or 2 man mini reception to reduce up and down moveme. More restricted smoking signs should be sticked to non-smoking areas. I enjoyed food ,fruits and all the dishes were above excellent . MSC Sinfonia is a cruise ship to be when ever feel like relaxing and taking family out ,the services are very good except long ques.

My entire life I have been terrified of anything to do with the ocean. The mere sight of a ship made me feel sick. Well now that has all ended and vanished thanks to the MSC SINFONIA. I have read lots of negative reviews on this site so far, and I've come to one conclusion - some people are just born complainers. They would even find a problem with the 7 star Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. If complaining is in your nature, even heaven itself wont satisfy you. With that being said, let me share my experience aboard my floating castle the "MSC SINFONIA" Well firstly, queues are part of life. We all need to join them and wait our turn. This does not have to become the bane of our existence does it? My mum, aunt and myself were elated and excited right from the moment we stepped into N-Shed, Durban Harbour. Any situation can be turned into a fun one in my book. Our wait was not long before we boarded the Sinfonia, to be greeted by drop-dead gorgeous human beings who smiled at us individually and directed us towards our cabins. Finding our cabin was super easy, and we were in awe at how beautiful everything was, and we were just dying to explore! We booked an inside cabin, as I will still very nervous about overcoming my biggest fear and phobia of the water, so thought it best not to be able to see it through a window... But next I am booking a cabin with a balcony!! From that point, the rest of our experience was nothing short of a dream come true, a fairytale, an absolutely mind-blowing experience. From the decor, to the food, to the general feel aboard, we felt like we were royalty. I've been reading up on unhappy people wanting compensation for not going to Maputo or the Portuguese Islands due to bad weather conditions. Well to bring contractual liability and obligation into it, it clearly states in the always unread "terms and conditions" that the course of the ship might change due to advers weather conditions and it is at the captains discretion. And to me its a no-brainer, I mean, no ship captain has the power to have direct conversations with GOD and ask him to please postpone the cyclone because some people are cruising... Another thing people were complaining about, and being very annoying indeed, is that you wait in long lines at the buffet and that hot beverages are being served in plastic mugs. Last time I checked, a buffet always has and always will include a queue, so why would expect any different aboard a cruise ship? And the coffee/tea is still going to go to the same place whether it comes from a plastic mug or a glass one. Ridiculous complaint in my book! The theatre shows were fantastic and reminded me of being back in New York at a Broadway show! The highlight for me was a group called "The Dream Team" These guys and girls were just a bundle of energy and always doing things to make the passengers laugh and join in the cruise festivities. Hats off to them!!! I wish I could convey a personal message to them and commend them on a job well done!! My mum is a vegetarian, and that was a concern for us before the cruise. But she ended up being the happiest when it came to satisfying her tummy. The food was exceptional. Our day spent in Maputo and the Portuguese Islands also were nothing short of perfect. We were literally and visibly depressed when the final morning dawned upon us and we could Durban approaching. We so wanted to stow away and leave with her to Europe! I have travelled extensively, so I am in a good place to compare and critique this experience. And the truth is that this cruise aboard the MSC SINFONIA was the best experience of my life and it will take a lot to knock it off my number one spot. I will definitely be going on another cruise as soon as the nest season starts! Read Less
