Defunct toilet for 30 nights

Review for a Middle East Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Our two daughters my husband and myself boarded in Venice for a trip of a lifetime. We had a cabin with a toilet flushing problem. We reported the problem and engineers came on several occasions to change parts but they could never fix the problem. The ship was only 3/4 full but we were never offered another cabin. We had to use the downstairs public bathroom the entire cruise. On our last ...

First and Last MSC Cruise

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

I've been on about 50 cruises on all the major lines, and this was my first and last cruise with MSC. The itinerary was great and unique, so I had to try it, but I didn't realize the stepdown in quality compared to Royal and Princess and the other major brands. The food was not good. We tried the sit down dinners twice, and they were very slow and every single item was terrible, so we just had ...

Very mixed feelings

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on MSC Musica

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We were delighted to find that the MSC Musica was relocating from the Med to South Africa, and booked Venice to Durban (24 days) as the conclusion of a long trip away from home in South Africa. By way of summary, our experience ran along these lines: 1 - The web site is a monster and needs some serious attention from someone who understands UX ('User Experience' - the trending approach to ...

Worst cruise ever

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on MSC Musica

ladiosa06
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose it for the trip to Egypt instead of private tour because MSCUSA call center promised the same sites for less. Instead, MSC Cruise, Musica. 10/4-11/7/18 became the worst cruise ever. 1. Call Center associates stated Egypt excursions were available even after change to Suez only 2. Smoking permitted in cabin although several disclosures prohibited smoking; crew unresponsive 3. At ...

Msc never again

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Musica

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, embarking in Venice and sailing through the Suez Canal, disembarking in Durban Sth Africa. There was a long 7 days at sea and unlike other cruises we have been on, there were very few interesting activities to keep the passengers occupied. They seemed to think everyone would just want to lay by the swimming pool, which many of the European ...

Very relaxing

Review for a Africa Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

Lizabetsy
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to South Africa and the thought of going through the Suez Canal appealed to us enormously. We enjoyed the classical music concerts and the documentaries especially. We were pleased to discover the quietness of the Pasha Lounge during the day where we could read, do crossword puzzles, etc. We enjoyed the excursions in Crete, Eilat, Mauritius and ...

MSC you need to improve

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

Sheila Lyle
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Restaurant food very mediocre - poor quality and presentation. Vegetarian option attrocious. Not good to have to sit with the same people for dinner for 23 nights. Need dine around option. Far too much queuing for everything. Drinks packages very questionable. Speaker - Hugh Mitford possibly the worst speaker I have ever heard - not surprisingly his lecture series was ...

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

My husband and I were on the MSC Sinfonia in October 2013 from Genoa to Cape Town (West Coast of Africa) and decided it would be fun to go from Venice to Durban through the Suez Canal (East Coast of Africa) in October 2017. We booked through the Johannesburg MSC office in July 2016 for October 2017 and got an excellent price. We loved our previous cruise. We have only ever cruised with MSC and ...

MSC SINFONIA SOUTHBOUND CRUISE - WORTH EVERY CENT!

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on MSC Sinfonia

Amanda Snyders
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

In October 2016 my daughter and son-in-law told us about their intended cruise in October 2017 - they investigated the different options, but soon found that the southbound cruise (Venice to Durban, South Africa) offers the best value for money. We were intrigued and immediately started planning towards our once-in-a-lifetime cruise vacation! Being practically virgin travelers (we only did a ...
