MSC Sinfonia Cruise Review by Tony.Norton

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and as a convenient way of getting to Europe. The Sinfonia is not to the same standard as the Opera which we have cruised on, on two occasions.

There is too much pork served at breakfast and lunch. Buffet in the main dining room with a full menu service is rather strang? If people want buffet, there is a whole restaurant dedicated to that style of eating.

The evening meals were very good and the services was excellent, where one has a chance to get to know the waiter that serves the same table each night.

The entertainment arranged for the cruise was very good. The cruise director was an excellent entertainer, singing, dancing, magic, mime and presenting enrichment shows.

The captain was also seen on occasion walking the ship and acknowledging the passengers. When disembarking in Venice, he was present in the farewell party and was shaking hands with each passenger, which was a great experience.

It suited our requirement for the trip.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Las Palmas (Gran Canaria)

A great island for holidays with great beaches and lists of places to relax with friends over some local food and wine


This was a great stop in place of going to Tangier, as the weather was not suitable.

Gibraltar is a fascinating territory with a rich history. There are some great English Pubs and Roy's Fish, where I had the best Cod and Chip ever.

I hope to go back to Gibraltar some day to spend more time learning about the history of the territory and explore more of the Rock

Malta (Valletta)

This island is always a pleasure to visit. It is so diverse from north to south and east to west. Each part of the island has a great history with magnificent views no matter where you visit on the island.


Walking the wall of the Old City is a great experience with such a picturesque setting. Again, no matter where you look, it is work taking a picture as it will be another postcard. The ride to the top of the mountain on the cableway is also worth the time and money.
