MSC Musica Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
First in MSC Cruises’ Musica-class of ships, MSC Musica entered service in 2006. A second-generation class of ships for the line, it builds upon the success of MSC Opera and MSC Lirica—similar in ambience, but larger. Interior décor in the art nouveau style is reminiscent of 1930s European design.
MSC Cruises took a giant leap into mainstream cruising with the introduction of this large and entirely new ship class. Highlights of the Musica-class design are a three-deck central foyer, where a piano is suspended on a transparent floor, à la carte restaurants, large-screen outdoor cinemas, and, on MSC Magnifica, a covered outdoor pool with retractable roof.
Italian culture prevails throughout, and serves as an important part of the entire cruise experience. Interiors are a blend of art deco and art nouveau themes as well as the authentic Italian designs for which other MSC Cruises ships are known. The extensive use of various colored marbles adds a luxurious quality to public spaces. In addition to its soothing Zen garden and Oriental music, the sushi bar is a bonus to the dining experience.
