Review summary

We enjoyed a lot our Adriatic cruise on MSC Sinfonia. Although we tried bigger ships but the Sinfonia has her own magic. As each ship have her own glance. The Adriatic is beautiful Greece, Croatia and Italy they are all ports that we enjoyed extremely.


4 out of 5
We were to embark since we were coming from Rome and due to train change in schedule we were late 3 hours to embark but the ship has late sail away that day. For our luck. The staff in Venice port are kind and helpful but need to be more organized. Add that the staff carrying our luggage broke 4 of our luggage bags.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
The crew is very good waiters and the steward. But some of them where just like they don’t care. Our cabin small cabinet door was broken we told the steward he said he will fix it but never did. He wouldn’t care to put the bunk bed up every day. He put it up only once.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin is small. But in all it was good to sleep in

Ship tip

It’s a nice clean ship. In general we liked it because you won’t feel the huge mass of people. And it’s easy to walk around without losing your way.

The minute you’re out of the ship there are many information desks to help you organize your visit to Ancona. We had the taxi waiting for us outside.
