MSC Sinfonia is one of the oldest ships in the fleet, so don't book for the things it doesn't have, such as Yacht club, speciality dining, robot bartenders, water slides, and big production shows. Book for the destination ports and value for money.

The ship was on a continuous circular Eastern Mediterranean itinerary catering predominately for the Italian market, but with many other Europeans also. Guests can embark and disembark at all ports, which leads to frequent multi-lingual safety announcements which are hard to avoid and drown everything else out.

The ship was not sailing at capacity and even the pool area wasn’t overly crowded, although the entertainment and smoking side was best avoided if you want peace and quiet. Top deck for suite guests was particularly empty, partially due to the wind on at sea days.

Port Reviews


Ship tenders go to new harbour. MSC offers chartered water bus for double price of regular water bus to old harbour, so use the regular service if not on a booked excursion.


Ship docked and short walk to town, or tuktuk, taxi or tours. easy to get lost in old town.
