We had 27 in our group ranging from 7 months to 64 yrs old. Employees were great and treated us like family. The ship is a medium size ship and we were never fighting the crowds. Wish the pool was modernized. Overall great adventure for our family.
I have no complains of the ports that we visited because they are spectacular, but the main complain was the cruiseship has this religious group that composed half of the ship ,I'm not a prejudice when it comes to nationality or religion but MSC catered more for these people with Indian food for the entire cruise and the services sucks because they got busy catering for these group. they should understand that we all paid the same price so we should all get the same exact treatment as them . Its not only me and my husband complaining but we spoke also to most of the cruisers who were complaining also of the services. The food really don't look appetizing in the buffet, first time I complain about cruise food, never touch the desserts either
We embarked on our first ever cruise with a group of 10 friends to see if it was for us. Overall I think we can say we enjoyed it but not totally hooked as many people seem to be. The five nights we feel was about right and enjoyed getting off looking at the different destinations which in my opinion is what appealed to me the most about cruising. Would I cruise again? Yes, I think we would but would prefer to sail from the UK in warmer times although this would no doubt mean a longer cruise.
Wonderful, friendly, attentive staff, great food, (and a good drinks package), lovely places to visit, very good shows and musical entertainment around the ship,and marvellous weather. We have cruised a great deal, particularly with MSC, and we always come back to them. Cant recommend them highly enough. Give them a go!
Smiling & professional crew, incredible entertainment, great food, spacious & clean room. There is really nothing to complain about.
We had fantastic weather, which I believe was a large part of the success. We were in short sleeves all eight days, and the pools were tolerable for the first three days.
If you have the unfortunate luck of rain/wind/cold, I suppose anywhere outside the ship would lead to a less successful experience.
Thank you MSC for a wonderful vacation!

My travel agent tried to talk me out of this cruise. I did not listen. The food never changed and was not any where near Hospital food. No flavor, small amounts and really disappointing. The Buffets were nothing more than a cattle call. Even the servers would push you out of the way to get to what they wanted. I had a few run ins with supervisors in the buffet, Alex and Girarld were uncaring throughout the trip. We had to fight to get Decaf coffee every morning, they keep it in a secret vault. 80% of the staff were ok...20% had a bad attitude. This ship trys to get a dime out of every nickle. The Cabin was adequate. On a bright note the ship doctor and staff were the best...Dr Mimovic and Rajko his nurse were terrific helping me with some medical issues. I have been on many cruises....from a service standpoint I could not recommend MSC Musica or any other MSC cruise..The food and bar manager needs to be awakened. I tried to give him a chance and he declined. Took me 5 attempts to get a key to work after waiter gave me the wrong key. at dinner. Something is not right with this ship. Should have listen to travel agent. Ports of call were good (the only reason we took the cruise). Find a different Cruise line.
MSC really is the low end of all cruise lines. While the service and check in and disembarkation was good, we had to pay for water and coffee at lunch and dinner. Breakfast room service was good, but the portions at dinner with very small MSC had a very limited menu.
This is the last time that we will cruise with MSC.
Loved the itinerary. Wonderful waking up in a new destination every day. Wished we had a longer amount of time in each port. Embarkation and Debarkation was smooth and efficient. Room was clean with plenty of storage. Food was adequate, nothing special, nothing horrible. Entertainment was mediocre. Again, nothing special, but not horrible. Not the cruise for you if you are expecting a lot of Americans or English speaking people. Although the crew speaks multiple languages and it was easy enough to communicate. Overall a nice cruise! I've had better, but what is not to love about being in Greece and Italy!
