The MSC Musica is the first ship built by MSC in the very popular Musica Class of ships. (Bigger and newer than the Lirica Class in which the MSC Sinfonia and MSC Opera were classified)
Built in 2006 this 92, 409 tonne vessel will be the largest ever to cruise in South African waters.
Of the 1 268 passenger cabins onboard, 65% of the passenger cabins have a Balcony, with a further 14% having an Oceanview, and 21% of the cabins being inside cabins. There are only 18 Suites onboard and are located forward on Deck 15.
A number of cabins have one or two pull down bunks to fulfil MSC’s “Kids Free” policy, where 2 children under 18 when sharing the cabin with 2 adults, cruise free and pay only the mandatory charges (taxes). There are 17 cabins designated for guests with limited mobility and special needs.
Bigger and roomier than the older MSC Sinfonia (Lirica Class ship) this dazzling new ship, which boasts a spectacular three-tier waterfall and unique see-through piano, can accommodate over 3000 guests.
Open and airy by design, the Musica offers loads of amenities; fabulous dining and thrilling entertainment. Special touches like a super-size movie screen over the pool, stylish cabins and an extended food and beverage offering, with the superb specialty Japanese restaurant being the first time a paying specialty dining option will be offered onboard in South African cruising.
As with any new ship that arrives, advance sales are strong as everyone wants to be amongst the first passengers to experience this new phenomenon in SA cruising.
The arrival of the MSC Musica on 08 November 2018 will give us much to look forward to in cruising in South Africa.
Our best advice is to book as early as possible to secure your place on a cruise this coming 2018/19 cruise season, or risk missing out
