Happy Customers

We really appreciated the attentiveness of our cruise consultants to our needs. They even reminded us of what we needed to do that we had overlooked. Building good relationships with our cruise consultants has encouraged us to definitely utilise their services again. They displayed professionalism, warmth, and attention to detail. Fantastic! Thanks so much for all your support."

This particular 4 star voyage from MSC Cruises has 6 forward departures, but is unfortunately sold out for this departure.

MSC Magnifica Overview

Until April 2017 MSC Magnifica is in the Mediterranean, and depending on the season 7- to 11-night cruises call at ports from Cyprus and Greece in the east, to Morocco and the Canary Islands in the west. From May to September 2017 is based in the Baltic Sea (ex Copenhagen and Warnemunde near Berlin), visiting Baltic ports and southern Norway. Note that the ship does not stay overnight in St Petersburg, which limits sight-seeing. Later in 2017 Magnifica returns to the western Mediterranean, and in November 2017 crosses the Atlantic to Brazil. MSC Cruises offers good affordable cruise vacations the Italian Way, filled with fun activities and having a wide appeal. Just note that the hours spent in ports are not overly generous for sight-seeing.


Four out of five cabins have an outside view, and of these four out of five have a balcony. Cabins are stylish. For all cabins continental breakfast is complimentary from 7.30 to 10 am, while room service snacks can be bought at other times. In suites a basket of fruit is provided at embarkation, and replenished daily. Cabins come with a mini-bar, personal safe, ample closet, shower-only tub, terrycloth robes, flat-screen TV, and excellent 24-hour room service. Suites have in addition fresh flowers, daily tray of canapés, hangers, upgraded toiletries, bathroom with tub, and king-size bed (or two singles).

Food and Dining

The two main dining rooms, L’Edera and Quattro Venti, are located aft with large ocean-view windows. There are two seatings for dinners. Instead of paying for cold water in dining rooms, fill your own bottle in your cabin, chill it in the mini-bar, and bring it with you at meal times. Guests in suites and deluxe grades are assigned seats in a quieter section of the restaurant. Dishes range from traditional and tasty Mediterranean fare, to the most refined international recipes. There is the "Always Available" menu, which includes spaghetti and grilled chicken, beefsteak or salmon. The alternative specialty restaurant is Oriental Plaza, a Chinese venue with the best of Asian menus and dim sum. The quality is high, and it is really worth having at least one meal here.


The state-of-the-art 1240 seat two-deck Royal Theatre is the principal showlounge. Some productions may be short, just 30 minutes. The Shakers Lounge is the main centre for social dancing, and other dance floors are spread throughout other lounges. The young and lively go to the loud and futuristic T32 Disco. View big-screen movies on the large screen above the forward pool. The Atlantic City Casino boasts over 600 square metres of casino gaming. Play Virtual Games in the video games room. Daytime activities include a broad range of traditional competitions, quizzes and auctions, as well as Italian lessons, cooking demonstrations and exercise classes. As for shore excursions, there is a wide range of options, but the queues can be long.
