The best family holiday - ever!: MSC Sinfonia Cruise Review by Barono

MSC Sinfonia 5

Overall Member Rating

The best family holiday - ever!

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Marseille
The cruise aboard MSC Sinfonia was the best holiday we have ever experienced.

We usually holiday in Spain and France, but now we have been spoilt by MSC Cruises, we could never go on holiday in France again. The French simply don't know how to provide a holiday, but they know how to enjoy one, judging by the number of French people aboard. We have two children and they loved the holiday. If you want to, the Sinfonia will look after your children in a very professional, safe and secure manner. We kept our children with us for the first two days but soon gave in to their demands to join the Junior Club. There are four swimming pools, loads of activities throughout the day or you can just veg out with a book or sunbathe. There is a sunbed for everyone aboard. emergency drills for the crew are carried out every day which just goes to show how serious MSC is about their ships. The evening shows are full of energy and spectacular. The food is really healthy and good. Breakfast is a More feast and lunch and dinner are 7- course feasts. The service is better than 5 star. Cabins are serviced TWICE per day. The Sinfonia deserves 7 stars for the sheer effort, professionalism, courtesy and service. the staff speak various languages - English mainly, but Italians, French, Spanish, Germans are catered for too. We can't wait to go again soon - very soon.

The hotels in the South of France need to check out the cruising scene and take note. No 5-star hotel in France can compete with MSC Cruises. None - especially if you have children. Less

Cabin review: 10

One of two Family cabins, two rooms with an adjoining door if you need it, one with double bed TV, double wardrobe and drawers, cupboards, window view to the ship's bow and a bunk bed if you have three children, the other room has a sofa double bed, double wardrobe and drawers, safe,TV, minibar, bathroom, port-side window. Big enough for a family of four or five. Comfortable beds. Towels changed twice per day if required. Better than some so-called five star hotels in France.
