MSC Musica Overview

Launched by Sophia Loren herself, the MSC Musica cruise ship embodies a spirit of Italian sophistication and luxury, with a distinctly international flavour that adds a little something extra to a ship that's already special in so many ways.


Specs: MSC Musica at a glance
The MSC Musica has a maximum passenger capacity of 3,223, cruises at a top speed of 22 knots and weighs in at 92,409 tonnes.


Accommodation: MSC Musica rooms and suites
From MSC Musica inside cabins to their luxuriously spacious suites, this vessel offers accommodation that will make cruisers feel welcome no matter which option they choose. But to really indulge yourself, consider opting for an MSC Musica suite: your own balcony, access to a private sun deck, a great spa package and unrestricted use of the Thermal Area (available only for adults) is all part of the experience.


Entertainment: things to do on board the MSC Musica
There's plenty to keep you engaged on this ship - here's a few MSC Musica entertainment highlights:

  • Find your inner art dealer and experience the excitement of an art auction
  • Indulge your tastebuds with a wine tasting
  • Attend a spectacular live show at Teatro La Scala


Food: MSC Musica restaurants
There are many reasons that people choose cruise holidays but there's no doubt that indulging in delicious food that you don't have to prepare is a big factor.

A few options for MSC Musica food that's included in your fare:
  • Oleandro and Le Maxim's dining rooms: traditional Mediterranean favourites and refined international dishes
  • Gli Archi cafeteria: buffet-style casual dining
  • Room service: the continental breakfast is complimentary

Some MSC Musica restaurants that cost a little extra:
  • Kaito Sushi Bar: authentic hot and cold Japanese dishes
  • Il Giardino: Italian seafood and steak house
  • Laguna Bar: poolside ice cream bar


Destinations: MSC Musica itineraries
An MSC Musica itinerary will often have you exploring the Mediterranean, with Italy, Greece and Croatia all regular destinations for the Musica. This ship also does Arabian Peninsula sailings featuring the magnificently opulent cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.


Things to remember: On board the MSC Musica
Things to remember when preparing for a cruise aboard the MSC Musica:
  • Jeans or shorts are okay during the day, while evening dress is divided into 3 categories: casual, informal and formal. Formal calls for a tux or dark suit for the men and a gown or cocktail dress for women. Informal means a jacket and trousers (no tie) for men and an "informal" dress for women. On casual nights, guys can get away with jeans.
  • The MSC Musica is a great ship for families, offering a brilliant kids club called Space Trip for children between 3 and 13. Acrobatic lessons, Playstation games, puppet shows, pizza parties... This is just a sample of the things your kids can enjoy.
  • While English is the official language aboard the MSC Musica, you have to keep in mind that MSC caters for people of many different nationalities - with a little patience, the multilingual, multicultural nature of an MSC cruise will be a highlight, not an annoyance.
  • In terms of gratuities, MSC charges around 6 Euros per day which is payable via your onboard account. The Euro is the official currency onboard the MSC Musica.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
