Review summaryMSC Sinfonia is a lovely ship and although it is a bit older, it is well maintained. There are very few areas where the carpet is a bit worn and the vessel is constantly being cleaned around the clock. The staff is mostly friendly and helpful. The food (at The Covo) is exquisite. The Spa staff and fitness trainers are professional. The cabins (we had a balcony) are a bit small, but well appointed with every convenience necessary. The entertainment shows at the San Carlo Theatre are tops and worth the visit. Franco is an exceptional personality for cruise entertainment and really helped keep smiles on people’s faces!
Food and Dining
Not bad, neither here nor there.
Pasha Club Discotheque
We were surprised to find adolescents on the dance floor, especially since there are signs in the ship stating age requirements which would prohibit adolescents from entering during dance hours.
La Terrazza Buffet
Good alternative, but we, as many, were surprised when they closed for cleaning at 4pm.
Il Galeone Restaurant
The food was good and the staff were perhaps, amongst the best on the ship.
Il Covo Restaurant
Superb! Exquisite! Exceptional!
Enrico is a marvelous pianist and the service is tops!
The excursion staff were very unprofessional.
A bit crowded.
We had two massages which were well done.
A bit crowded.
Guest services team was professional.
Are the pools heated?
A bit disorganized.
Always too full.
There were quite a lot of people and it’s not so large to handle many people.
It’s a beautiful room with lovely decor, but the air ventilation system is sub standard, which basically consisted of turning on the air conditioning. A bit too cold for our December cruise.
Great shows and Franco is a great announcer!
We almost didn’t see it because it is very small. Just a corner in one of the many lounges. Very few books in foreign languages.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Do not buy “The Wellness” package. It was not worth the cost. Be sure to try afternoon tea at 5 (ends before 6pm) as it is full of delicious treats. Definitely book The Covo for dinner as it is one of the most memorable dining experiences of our voyage and try the Pasha Club for exceptional onboard indoor seaside views!
