  3. MSC Musica
The main reason for our cruise was to explore the new ship, as we traveled on the SINFONIA several times, including Two South and Two North Bound Cruises. After this local cruise we still prefer the Grand Voyages of 24 days, to or from Italy, As this was the first cruise of 2018/2019 season in South Africa we were very disappointed in some areas. The ship itself is much bigger and more spacious than the SINFONIA with a 5 star rating. Although we felt with the size of the ship and the capacity of passengers that the cruise was Overcrowded, especially during meal times, breakfast, lunch and dinner in the open buffet area. There were always long ques waiting to get to the food stations. This caused that people try to jump the ques and try to squeeze in, and that caused unhappiness among most of the passengers!!!!!!. Therefore the rating on the dining was 3, although the food was a 4 rating. Shore Excursions: Cant t say much as the excursions to the Portuguese Islands were cancelled due to strikes on the island.
