  3. MSC Sinfonia
We decided in November 2017 it is time to try a cruise and see what it is all about & just went into Pentravel to book. We didn't know it was Oppiwater Festival & we were really surprise about all the show's. The celebs on this cruise were all very friendly & we really enjoyed meeting them all in person. It was just a pity that the travel agent didn't tell us we need to book tickets for all the shows, but we were lucky enough to have gotten some complimentary tickets. We did not go on any shore excursions because we heard that there was no facilities on the Portuguese Islands & because of safety reasons & weather conditions we could not get off at Pomene. It was not a problem for us as there was so much to do on board & we still enjoyed ourselves. We are telling all our friends & family that this should be one of the things on their bucket list to do. We are already planning to go on another cruise hopefully on the new Musica that is coming soon. This was worth every cent we spend from start to finish it was worth it. The service on board is excellent, the food is good, entertainment excellent, cabins comfortable, everything is just perfect, We were also pleasantly surprise at how quick the embarkation & disembarkation process went, the only real problem was with the waiting for parking at Durban harbour, but once you had your parking it was smooth sailing from there on. One other thing the cocktails are amazing.

Cabin Review

Bella Oceanview Stateroom (obstructed view)
Cabin O1 9068
Cabin is really comfortable with everything you need for such a cruise & it was really amazing as we had an oceanview. With our next cruise we are going to try & get a balcony, because that will be even more breathtaking.
