Me and my sister was on the MSC MUSICA with the Finesse group from 01-04 March 2019. The organising with regard to the embarkation and disembarkation was much better than the previous years and well organised. It went smooth and there was no long wait at all. The traffic in and outside the harbour also went fluent. Me and my sister was on the 14th floor and had a very nice room with a balcony. The was a sliding door to the balcony. The cabin was very clean and in well furnished. What was new for me being on the boat 3 times and my sister 5 times, was the tv, big mirror and fridge (stocked) with drinks and eats (for your own expense) in the cabin. The food was nice and a big variety the entire day. There was a lot of entertainment on the 13th deck and inside the ship such as karaoke, tennis, solarium, swimming pools, Jacuzzi's, a casino, chocolate shop, handbag shop, photo gallery, coffee shop, perfume den, tag heuer shop, beauty/hair- salon, lounges (tastefully decorated with colours and furniture), Swarovski shop etc... There is also beautiful Teatro theatre with shows with a theme every evening which is of high standard. The shows is approximately 45 minutes and the d├ęcor, lights, entertainment people and their attires is of the best standard and according to the theme during the shows. The servicing of the rooms was well maintained and we were welcomed by a helpful and friendly guy (part of your staff) on the 14th floor. Although one pay in dollar on the boat, it is worth the money that you pay for the cruise. I will definitely be back in 2020 if I can afford it. Read Less

Was Invited by a friend. Everything was spectacular. More than the first time. Our waiter only warm up to us the final night and the food was great. Love everything. I would only suggest that there would be gluten free options for me. I have celiac decease and cant tolerate gluten. The first night I ordered a steak and it was covered in flour. That was tje only meal I couldn't enjoy. The entertainment was out of this world. Perfect! The cabin was what I expected. Everything was clean. I got lost a couple of times... Well not actually got lost. I lost my friends. The ship is way too big to find someone. Lol I embarkation was extremely fast this time. My first time we waited what felt like forever. The disembarkation as well went smooth. My overall experience was totally out of this world. Will definitely go on a cruise next time my husband will join me. Read Less

My family and I had an amazing time, i had my girls with me and they had a blast. They was always something for them to do and they loved the music and entertainment Our cabin was clean and it was kept that way throughout the cruise, even the kids beds were made for them. My kids loved the food, i had the tastiest ice cream ever and the cocktails were the best. I am always so paranoid when traveling with the girls 7 and 11. But the crew were awesome with them friendly and the answered any question the girls had. They really enjoyed the service and the restaurant they were treated awesomely and they had the best food and desserts. The ship is well maintained and always clean. The embarkation and disembarkation went so smoothly. My luggage was well taken care of. We just got back and are already planning out next one. Read Less

it was an experience and I would like to take my whole family again on this worldly experience. The friendly crew makes you to feel welcome and at home. All the activities on the ship was such an experience one just needs to experience yourself. The service was excellent. I could not attend all the activities as there was too many and I have to go back to finish all others. The entertainment was the highlight of my trip as I am a person that likes to enjoy myself on the dance floor. I think 3 days was not enough for me to peruse through the entire ship. next time I would want to do more excursions compare to only Portuguese Islands. I have really enjoyed myself with my friends. There was a variety of food and we could just choose what ever we wanted. The service was good and I hope to see all the crew members again in the near future. Read Less

WOW AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I chose this cruise do to the fact that it was the "For Girls Only" with Finesse and needed the brake away Throughout the cruise all embarkation and disembarkation went well. Compliments to all the cruise members - well organised!!!!!! The fact that your photo is taken when you entry the ship and with every disembarkation and embarkation. In overall the ship, cabin, dining, food, drink all were excellent. The staff were all friendly through out the whole cruise and very helpful when you get loss, (which happen a lot). Having your photos taken is a big must and the best memories ever. You can pick and choose from the food and is suitable if you are on a diet as well. We enjoyed the Lounges and the life music and it was so relaxing. Overall it is a awesome experience to be on the cruise I am booking for next year!!!!!! Read Less

MSC Musica was highly recommended, but did not meet the standard. Cabin was dirty, food mediocre and the stuff not really friendly. The only thing that was good was the theater. The shows where brilliant. Otherwise overall it was a waste of money. I am bitter. I paid R12 600.00 but what I got was not worth that at all. I tried to upgrade but the room but the receptionist said that was not possible. I complained about the dirt but nothing was done. I had a balcony cabin but the balcony was dirty for the duration of my our stay. The last guest was a smoker and left a glass with cigarette stubs by the balcony and that glass was there for the duration of the stay. I got tickets for my brother and his wife as a wedding gift and they had a love time, so I was expecting the same only to get the horrendous sevice I got. I am vegan and there was no food. I tried to customize the vegetarian food but there was very limited options. This was a terrible cruise. I will never recommend it to my friends and family. The service is just not consistent. My brother got a great service and I got a bad service for more or less the same price. I am very disappointed and I feel cheated. Read Less

1st time on MSC and was disappointed, it was a cheesy experience. Things I liked: I liked my cabin it was spacious but you could have had a kettle with Tea/Coffee available. If I didn't book a balcony cabin I would have been really stuffed up. I enjoyed the island Things I disliked: Food was terrible, no taste mass production, the pizza was the worst The plates & cups were filthy. Free coffee at Buffet very bad It's Cheaper to buy Water & Coffee cash if you a none drinker than buying vouchers, vouchers are a rip-off. Toilets onboard were pathetic Onboard entertainment pathetic, Only two shows 7 pm & 9 pm nothing else to do during the day. The pools are a disgrace, very small & deep The games room pathetic hardly any games All in all, I tried it and I disliked the experience, I won't cruise local again maybe I would consider a much larger ship with better water activities This cruise is for old people and people just looking to get drunk and party. Not suitable for families. Read Less

I heard about the cruise from a cousin who told me about the special that was running towards the end of 2018 and as a family we ended up going as a group of 15 cousins. The embarkation got off on a slow start because we were there on the scheduled time but after the bags were taken from us there was some delay and we never received information on why because the staff was there behind the counters but they were not serving us. From that point onwards the pace then steadied. Maybe in the future it would help to have more queue Marshall's because at one point it looked as if some people were cutting off the queues but in actual fact they knew that the 2 queues were going to the same point. The disembarkation went very smoothly. The use of elevators during peak times tested the patience of the most patient individuals. The ship is amazing and the time spent on it was not enough to explore all of its little treasures. The cabins were of acceptable size. The cabin staff was amazing, the cabins were kept neat. The dining rooms were well managed but a new strategy is needed for the management of the one on the 13th floor. The very first experience there was shocking because when we got on to the ship, the cabins were not ready and we went there for a meal. The queues were shockingly long and there were people who were done with their meal but were not prepared to vacate the tables which was really frustrating. The diversity of the menu was most welcomed as well as the continuous availability of snacking food. It can be recommended that fruits also be part of the snacking food as too much flour affects the digestive system. The entertainment was good and the welcome party was awesome, we even forgot that we were leaving dry land! We also enjoyed the stand up comedy. The available resources were sufficient to keep one entertained throughout the cruise. The staff was always available to offer information which was good. We will most definitely cherish the time we spent in the Portuguese Island and Pomene. It was really appreciated that the staff never ran out of ice! As we were getting back on to the ship from Pomene, the waves became a bit wild and that on its own was an adventure, it even made me consider doing the white water rafting! The staff was very calm and reassuring and that was really appreciated. Another awesome surprise for us were the cool face cloths as we were embarking from the ports. My family and I really had a great time and we would most certainly do it again! Read Less

The services on the ship are excellent. All staff are very helpful. Cleanliness is the order of the day on MSC Musica. The ship offers a variety of entertainment activities. The drawback however is that most of these activities close at 23:30. The dicso is too small to cater for the number of people. The two swimming pools are small for the number of people. Some of the bigger ships offer an ironing area where guests can iron their own clothing. My partner's dress was delayed which caused us to miss the first dinner sitting and the show which was hosted that night. The cabins on the 11th floor are very spacious and well laid out. The double beds are big and comfortable. The cabin also contains a comfortable sleeper couch. Dining on the MSC Musica is a pleasant experience. The restuarants are well appointed and the food is excellent. Breakfast was however a struggle to find seating space. Most of the staff are very good at what they do and made all passengers feel at home. Some of the staff are however new and experience language difficulties. I visited both Portuguese Island and Pomene. Disembarkation and return procedures were very well organised. I did not do additional excursions. I travelled with my partner without children. I am already planning my next excursion and would recommend MSC Cruises. Read Less
