Description

Built as the European Stars for Festival Cruises, Msc Sinfonia was purchased by MSC Cruises after the bankruptcy of the original owner. MSC Sinfonia has maintained almost all of the very spartan décor of Festival (it was a ship that was built on the cheap), except for the new section. In fact, it has been recently elongated with a notable increase in the passenger capacity that however reduced the livability on board. The original cabins are of below-average dimension. MSC has increased the areas intended for children and teens.

Nice Adriatic cruise on board the Msc Sinfonia

I liked

Friendly crew

I didn't like

commento

Msc Sinfonia is a nice Italian cruise ship, with old fashoned interiors and good food. We spent 1 week on an adriatic itinerary. It has benn a good experience, I think Msc Cruises offers a good product to families.

Western Mediterranean onboard Msc Sinfonia

I liked

Cheap cruise

I didn't like

Not so modern ship!

commento

The service was quite good, the cabin always clean and comfortable. The ship shows its years, although it is kept rather well. Very noisy entertainment and too many announcements are made with loudspeakers.

Msc Sinfonia nel Mediterraneo

I liked

Qualità prezzo

I didn't like

Età della nave

commento

Itinerario fatto e rifatto ma era un'ottima occasione di una crociera fuori stagione. Msc Sinfonia non è una nave eccellente, sia nelle strutture che nel servizio, ma la reputo ottima per il prezzo pagato. 10 giorni piacevoli, senza disguidi o problemi, consigliata per occasioni del genere.

Msc Sinfonia: mia prima transatlantica

I liked

Qualità prezzo

I didn't like

Pochi ristoranti alternativi

commento

Prima esperienza transatlantica, che volevo fare da tempo. Ho scelto Msc Sinfonia per il prezzo più che ottimo e per la partenza a me congeniale. La nave non era naturalmente il massimo della modernità ma ho apprezzato il servizio e la pulizia, con ottima esperienza complessiva.

La rivincita delle piccole

I liked

I porti di scalo

I didn't like

Arredamenti e allestimenti troppo datati

commento

La nave è indiscutibilmente datata, ma consente ancora un contatto con il mare, è vivibile e, complici le dimensioni ridotte in grado di attraccare in porti non convenzionali o comunque non battuti dalle grandi navi. Cabine piccole ma ben tenute, pulizia in generale soddisfacente. Scarsa la varietà di scelta presso il buffet.

12 Days of Glee

I liked

Great Innovation, reasonable exchange of value for money

I didn't like

Old

commento

Despite the old-fashioned modern of the ship, the relaxation it offered in winter is "out-of-this-world!" Summarily, it was a 12 day of glee cruising this ship.

I liked

Service

I didn't like

Architecture is very old

commento

I enjoyed my journey throughout. I was particularly impressed by the pricing. Moreover, the staff was amazing. However, cabins were tiny and the ship interior definitely needs improvement.

Nave da ammodernare

I liked

Itinerario e prezzo

I didn't like

Nave vecchia

commento

Itinerario molto bello, servizio buono, prezzo ottimo. Peccato che Msc Sinfonia sia piuttosto anziana nei suoi interni, non ci è piaciuta molto. Le cabine sono piccole anche se tenute molto bene dal personale di servizio. Peccato!

Mediterraneo invernale

I liked

Prezzo

I didn't like

Poco moderna

commento

La nave non è il top della modernità, si sa, ma se si considera la stagione ed il prezzo, vale veramente la pena rilassarsi nel Mediterraneo in inverno. Niente da dire sul servizio, la qualità generale potrebbe essere più curata e soprattutto qui si viaggia come le navi di qualche anno fa... Ma accettabile.

Alta stagione nel Mediterraneo

I liked

Tanto intrattenimento divertente

I didn't like

Buffet sempre affollato in navigazione

commento

Esperienza in famiglia su Sinfonia in alta stagione. Da quanto mi dicevano temevo molto peggio... Nonostante l'affollamento la crociera ci ha soddisfatto. Il mini club è molto ben gestito, così come l'intrattenimento per i ragazzi e gli adulti. Cabine non grandi ma sempre ben pulite. La nave non ha forse tutte le modernità di oggi ma l'esperienza per noi è stata piuttosto positiva.

Cucina

commento

Itinerario raro e ne abbiamo approfittato, assolutamente meraviglioso. Sinfonia è una bella nave, stile non moderno ma confortevole e a misura d'uomo. I servizi in generale sono stati molto buoni, ottima la pulizia. Peccato per la cucina di bordo, molto approssimativa e poco stuzzicante.

I liked

I didn't like

Nave non moderna

commento

Staff di grande professionalità, itinerario originale, esperienza buona. La nave non è fra le più moderne e a bordo si vede la differenza. Dipende dai gusti di crociera.

Itinerario ben studiato e nuovo, esperienza piacevole anche se in alta stagione. La nave ha le pecche della sua età anche se l'organizzazione di bordo è sempre valida.
