MSC Orchestra Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The second ship in Cruises’ Musica-class, MSC Orchestra debuted in 2007. Like other ships in the MSC Cruises fleet, MSC Orchestra is designed to offer an affordable cruise vacation and attracts a varied demographic as illustrated by announcements made in six languages—including Japanese.
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.
