MSC Musica Cruise Review by Saxton97

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: Africa
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

We chose this cruise departing on 20th January as it was advertised in the UK and looked interesting visiting different places in South Africa, along with Namibia and Mozambique. Embarking was the worst we have ever experienced, no guidance or help. Cabin 11171 was good and roomy, no issues there! Namibia ended up being the only port of call on the 12 day trip that was there on the correct day and for the advertised time, all the rest of the stops were either shortened dramatically or cancelled, with at times not too much explanation. We ended up floating of Cape Town for 2 days, due to wind, sea swell so could not dock, to us British looked like a lovely calm summers days! Apparently the harbour is not well designed in taking a cruise boat in if slight wind/swell. Overall very disappointed with the experience, due to many things, lack of information, repeat menus, repeat entertainment, buffet reminded me of a school canteen so avoided it, having to change cruise card every 4th day and lots of immigration. Being warned of the $50 visa each for Mozambique would have been good, we did know we had to get one btw. This cruise was never designed for the UK market in my belief but for South Africans who wanted a 4 day eating, drinking jolly.
