Description

Second ship in the Lirica class, the MSC Opera was derived from the Mistral prototype created for Festival Cruises that has since gone bankrupt. With respect to the other ships created for this company it distinguishes itself for its round external lines and for its hotel interiors which are more elegant and designed by De Jorio in the typical style of MSC Cruises.
It has recently been elongated with a notable increase in the passenger capacity that however reduced livability on board. The original cabins are of below-average dimension. Today is it a ship that is dedicated exclusively to families and young travelers.

Una delle mie prime crociere con Msc, da Amsterdam su un bell'itinerario verso Venezia. Ricordo tutto bello, con ottimo servizio, cucina buonissima e cabina sempre in perfetto ordine! Una Msc di altri tempi, oggi è cambiato molto.

Caos ai ristoranti e ai buffet

commento

Nave nel complesso molto accogliente e in discrete condizioni nonostante l’età,numero di passeggeri forse troppo elevato per le capacità dei posti nei ristoranti,idem teatro.nonostante tutto abbiamo passato una bella settimana.animazione sempre presente

Pessima esperienza la peggiore

I liked

Nulla, forse gli soettacoli a teatro.

I didn't like

Tutto, disorganizzazione, nave vecchia con ruggine sul balcone, sala da pranzo indescrivibile con servizio discutibile.

commento

Avuti una sequela di disguidi, pacchetti prenotati prima ma a birdo inesistenti, escursioni addebitate senza averle fatte, una fila di persone alla reception x reclami più disparati. Spa orrenda e personale non professionale. Fortunatamente era la mia 7 crociera altrimenti fosse stata la prima avrei smesso di fare crociere. Msc ha una pessima pubblicità da questa nave che non le rende giustizia, dovrebbe rottamarla.

Didn't Like It

I liked

Great itinerary

I didn't like

Ship needs maintenance services

commento

The itinerary was fabulous. But since the ship was old, there was rust on handles and roof. Staff always seemed tired and was working slowly, which resulted in long lines for every service.

Opera da rottamare

I liked

l'animazione ed il tragitto

I didn't like

nave vecchia, ruggine sui balconi, disorganizzazione

commento

la peggior crociera sulle 10 fatte, disguidi già all'imbarco (mancavano i pacchetti acquistati on-line), problemi nell'assegnazione tavoli al ristorante (avevo il my-choice e non lo volevano riconoscere), addebito escursione mai fatta, code interminabili alla reception di gente irritata per le più svariate motivazioni

Average service and general quality of food. Old cruise ship with many maintenance problems. So different from the newest Msc cruise ship in the fleet. Not recommend.

Crociera nella media

I liked

Prezzo e periodo

I didn't like

Personale stanco

commento

Abbiamo prenotato questa crociera su proposta di amici che andavano in ferie a giugno. Ci siamo uniti, prezzo ottimo come spesso su Msc. Opera non mi è particolarmente piaciuta, nave di impostazione vecchia, con arredi pesanti, poco luminosa. Nel complesso siamo stati bene ma non consiglierei Msc Opera rispetto ad altre di Msc.

Meravigliosa

I liked

I didn't like

Giochi bambini (piscina) andrebbero seguite meglio dalla crew

commento

Ho avuto l’onore di viaggiare a bordo di questa splendida nave, ospita la bellezza di 2700 passeggeri circa , e ha 1071 cabine , all interno a rendere la nostra vacanza meravigliosa lavorano circa 728 persone della crew..tutte persone meravigliose!! Una nave che mi sento davvero di consigliare a tutti , per i suoi ampi spazi, belle piscine ,con un bel e ampio spazio giochi per i bimbi ... e non solo .. i suoi ristoranti sono deliziosi , proprio come i loro piatti.. mai monotoni e sempre diversi . Quindi che dire buon vento e buon viaggio su Msc Opera 😉

Opera ma non troppo

I liked

un itinerario bellissimo con doppio passaggio sul Bosforo e 4 giorni di navigazione nel Mar Nero

I didn't like

Appena uscita dal dry dock dopo l'allungamento… in pieno "rodaggio"

commento

Noi abbiamo preferito la versione "originale" di Opera, ciò non toglie che sia stata comunque un esperienza positiva

Crociera con Msc Opera, siamo stati bene

I liked

Trattamento e servizio

I didn't like

Poche alternative sulla nave nella ristorazione e come ambienti

commento

Crociera di una settimana nel Mediterraneo, buon trattamento ed ottimo servizio. Rapporto qualità prezzo veramente considerevole. La nave non è fra le pi moderne ma è ben conservata, si mangia bene e le dimensioni a misura d'uomo permettono sempre calma e tranquillità.

Buona crociera, nave tranquilla

I liked

Buon rapporto qualità prezzo in alta stagione

I didn't like

Qualche affollamento nei ponti esterni

commento

Esperienza molto positiva su Msc in alta stagione. Nave di dimensioni medie ben gestita, elegante anche se non moderna. Buon servizio, ristorazione nella madia. Le cabine con balcone sono ampie anche per famiglie con bambini

MSC Opera

I liked

Buona cucina

I didn't like

commento

L'ultima della sua classe è una nave da preferire per itinerari caldi dove si può usufruire delle aree esterne, bar, piscine. Pulita, ben tenuta, personale di bordo gentile e disponibile, peccato il teatro piccolo che con due turni di spettacoli non è in grado di accogliere tutti gli ospiti. Punto di forza la cucina veramente eccellente. La mancanza di attrazioni particolari presenti nelle nuove navi è consigliabile a chi non ama le navi troppo grandi e sceglie il viaggio ponendo l'itinerario come priorità.

Piccola ma...un gioiellino

I liked

Nave piccolina,facile da girare,vedevi le stesse facce in giro, come in una grande famiglia

I didn't like

Piccolina,se si amano le grandi navi, questa non è adatta.Si gira in poco tempo.

commento

Non ho ricordi particolari della nave, ho viaggiato qualche anno fa. Ma a livello di cibo, pulizia, struttura, tutto al top. Animazione migliore in assoluto.
