MSC Orchestra Overview

MSC Orchestra leaves South America for the Mediterranean in April 2017, then offers 7-night circuits of the Western Mediterranean. Guests can board at any of Civitavecchia (for Rome), Genoa, or Barcelona. Late in 2017 Itineraries change to 10- to 12-night cruises as far east as Greece, and west to the Canary Islands. The Line offers good affordable cruise vacations the Italian Way, filled with fun activities and having a wide appeal. Note that port calls may be short time-wise, and allow for add-on costs on board.

Accommodation

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’Ibiscus and Villa Borghese, 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 Shanghai, a Chinese venue with real wok cooking and dim sum. The quality is high, and it is really worth having at least one meal here. The Four Seasons Restaurant is another alternative dining area with à la carte Italian cuisine.

Entertainment

The state-of-the-art 1240 seat two-deck Covent Garden 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 R32 Disco. View big-screen movies on the large screen above the forward pool. The Palm Beach 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.
