The newest jewel in the MSC fleet, the MSC Sinfonia combines modern Italian design with classic elegance. Relax by one of two pools, scale the rock-climbing wall, or work on your swing in the golf simulator. The Internet cafe allows you to stay in touch with family and friends while the virtual reality center helps you escape into another world. Please your palate in two restaurants, a grill, and a pizzeria - all offering a variety of dishes including delectable Italian specialties. With a high crew-to-guest ratio and impeccable service, you'll find no detail is too trivial in ensuring your comfort. When the stars come out, soak in a whirlpool or catch a show in San Carlo Theatre.

I have taken more than 10 cruises in my life. This is my second European cruise, but from a European line. The food and entertainment was far superior than other lines like NCL or Royal Caribbean. Highly recommend MSC, but take note they do not make announcements for everything and anything so you must make sure to read your daily program.

Not a very good cruise by bfallan

I wouldn't recommend a cruise on the Sinfonia. We did the 7-day eastern Mediterranean cruise out of Venice. This ship is on the small side and the on board activities are limited, but we booked it because we were excited about the itinerary. Unfortunately the ship had mechanical issues so we missed the stop in Mykonos entirely (and it was only going to be a few hours anyway, the way the itinerary was advertised is misleading). Not only was this disappointing, but MSC was very reluctant to provide updates about what was happening, so we were stressed not knowing how much additional disruption to expect. But the biggest complaint would be the food. We booked the Aurea package, and despite reading some negative reviews about the food before we left, assumed that having the my choice dining in the Il Covo restaurant would get us access to a higher quality of dining. That was not the case. We got sick off the food our fist night on the ship, and a number of the dishes we were served throughout the cruise were simply inedible. After our dinners in Il Covo we would go to the buffet looking for other options, and what really floored us was that a number of the dishes served in Il Covo each evening were also served on the buffet. So all the Aurea dining package bought us was the same bad food as the buffet but plated and brought to us by a waiter. I wish I had taken the negative reviews of the food more seriously before I booked the cruise, it was really disappointing. I will give credit to the staff, who for the most part we found helpful and friendly. When the boat had mechanical problems, they were stuck in the same situation as us not knowing what was happening, and they tried their best to keep things positive. Overall, based on our experience, I wouldn't recommend a cruise on the Sinfonia.

Disappointed in the staff, embarkation and disembarkation process by mjoparris

Verified Review

I believe that by taking away the opportunity for the crew to gain tips for giving quick, efficient service with a smile (none of the staff smiled at passengers except for the wait staff in the My Choice Dinning room) may be one of the reasons most of the staff seemed to hate their jobs. This new policy regarding tips is the only thing I can think of that may have caused such a different experience with the staff on board this ship as compared to my experience 3-4 years ago on an MSC cruise out of Rome where the entire staff was always friendly and helpful.

Don’t go unless you like to spend your time in queues for food, drink, shopping, etc. Don’t buy the drink packages- its a scam. Everytime you trynorder something supposedly covered by your ticket the particular bar happens not to have stock or your package does not cover it..

We were on Sinfonia and have been on different MSC ships in the past & loved everything about them. Was very disappointing to see such rudeness towards passengers by most of the staff
