MSC Musica Review

Review of MSC Musica

Launched in 2006, MSC Musica is the first of MSC Cruises Musica-class ships, together with Orchestra, Poesia and Magnifica.

History - construction and ownership

MSC Cruises (MSC Crociere) is a passenger shipping company headquartered in Genoa and Naples. It was established in 1960. Today, MSC Crociere is a subsidiary of MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company) - world's 2nd largest containership company. MSC Crociere is the world's largest privately-owned cruise company. By annual passenger shipping volumes, MSC is ranked world's 4th largest cruise company (after Carnival Corporation, RCCL-Royal Caribbean and NCL-Norwegian) with over 5% global market share.

MSC Musica cruise ship

The 2,550-passenger cruise ship MSC Musica was launched in 2006 as MSC Cruises fleet's largest vessel (at the time). With Musica, MSC grabbed a large piece of the English speaking cruising market, but the liner attracted different nationalities - Germans and British in the winter, Italians in the summer months, as well as more and more Americans during high season.

Cruise itinerary program

MSC Musica itinerary program is based on 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruises from La Romana, Pointe-a-Pitre and Fort-de-France. During summer, Musica operates 7-day Eastern Mediterranean cruises out of Venice to the Greek Islands. The ship also offers cheap Transatlantic repositioning crossings between Europe and the Caribbean.

Cabins

MSC Musica staterooms (1275 total) include 18 Suites, 809 Balconies, 275 Inside, in all 8 grades. Most are the 160-190-ft2 Balcony cabins. The largest are the Balcony Suites (270 ft2 / 25 m2 plus 50 ft2 / 5 m2 terrace).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Two formal restaurants onboard MSC Musica serve Mediterranean and Italian cuisine in traditional assigned seatings. Two buffet restaurants, which seem like a single dining area during the day, with long-serving counters, provide casual dining for breakfast and lunch. The aft buffet restaurant is reserved at night for seated dining and features a steak-house menu and extra charge; the forward one serves pizza. The à la carte sushi and Asian speciality restaurants require reservations and carry an additional charge. Ship's room service is limited to a menu including cold sandwiches and Continental Breakfast. Midnight buffets vary, ranging from traditional shipboard gala affair to themed snack-type offerings.
