Sail date: July 20, 2008

Ship: MSC Musica

Cabin type: Inside

Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Review summary

The ship itself was great, the crew was amazing, the food fantastic and the port calls were good.

Ports of call

Santorini, Greece

3 out of 5
We went to the city and it was very pretty up there and the views were great but getting up there is horrendous! The lines are insane to ride the tram up there or to ride a donkey. You have to walk up the same road the donkeys take up so it isn't very safe and it's very tiring. Once you get to the top there are thousands of people from the cruise ships all trying to do stuff so it's very crowded and frustrating.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

3 out of 5
We couldn't find the beach so one again I recommend taking a tour there. The port call isn't nearly long enough, we could barely get something to eat and take some pictures in the main square before we had to go back.

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

5 out of 5
We went to the site where the first Olympic games were held and the temples of the greek gods and goddesses, it was very informative and interesting. The itinerary said Olympia and shopping though and there wasn't much time at all for shopping.
Don't Miss: Site of first Olympic games

Corfu, Greece

5 out of 5
We took a taxi to the beach and it was beautiful. Recommend taking a tour there. The white sand beaches really aren't close enough to go too, all of the beaches have a lot of rocks and shells but it's still pretty. The water was very cold but worth getting into because it was so blue and clean.
Don't Miss: the beach

Bari, Italy

1 out of 5
You have to get an excursion at this port. We didn't and it's extremely run down, nothing to see and almost everything was closed for siesta when we got there.

Mykonos, Greece

5 out of 5
We were so ready to be away from all the kids at that point that we went and partied the night away (OK only until midnight since we had to be back on the boat but it was better than nothing!) and it was a lot of fun! Wish we were there longer because nothing really starts to happen there till around midnight.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

5 out of 5
We went on a tour to the Akropolis and even though it was crowded it was a very good tour and the pictures I got were amazing.
Don't Miss: Akropolis

Pros: The crew

Cons: Too many older people and kids, not enough young, single people

Recommends MSC Musica? Yes!
