MSC is already well known to us as this was our 4th trip and one on the Opera. We enjoyed every moment of everything that was offered - from food to entertainment and again service. We only live about 20 minutes drive from the Cape ... Read more

I enjoyed the 3 days on the MSC Sinfonia tremendously. From checkin to getting on the ship was a wonderful experience. Most of the staff were very friendly and had great sense of humors and always willing to help out. I loved the ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise as we were travelling around South Africa and thought it would be a good way to see some different areas of Country. We have visited a lot of Africa over the years but never South Africa. The cruise ... Read more

The embarkation was fast although we were many. A shuttle bus collected us at the airport and the luggage was safe and well managed by the friendly staff. The immigration did its work perfectly well. No wasting of time on checking the ... Read more

We have had done two previous trips on board the Opera which was great. The MSC Sinfonia is great, we had a wonderful time. The entertainment crew on a ship makes a huge difference to your overall experience and was far better than the ... Read more

We paid for the suite so we were happy with the room size and the balcony. The room needed massively updating however and was dirty upon embarkation. The restaurant il Covo was almost faultless - food, service, everything went well. ... Read more

We decided to go on the MSC Sinfonia as so many of our friends have been and we wanted to experience what they have been talking about. Best way to start the day- BREAKFAST! There was always such a big variety that you could never ... Read more

The ocean view cabin is small. Sharing with 2 children, ridiculously small. This was our first time on a MSC Cruise, and on South African water, and oh boy, this was not a smooth cruise. During the 7 nights, I had 7 sleepness nights as you ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare, even having paid for "fast track". The process was totally disorganised and unprofessional. The staff started out being surly and downright rude. The cabin was comfortable, but we had to request new ... Read more

Got on the ship, bit slow boarding. They have stretched the ship and fitted another 200 cabins. We had a new cabin (9105). Very tidy, but a bit small. Adequate, but not as good as the last time on this ship. Had requested fixed early ... Read more

Destinations looked interesting However it was quicker flying from Gatwick to Venice than getting on this cruise with five different queues. Lets try Dinner - Over 1.5 hours to serve and that will be nearly 3 Euros for a bottle of water ... Read more

It was my first cruise experience. I want to specify that I'm 24 and I'm used to travel but I opt for hostels, b & b and Airbnb. I was told that the cruise was a nice option to see more places as easily as possible. The positive: ... Read more
