Where she sails
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.

MSC Magnifica — Ship Review Rating: 3 out of 5 based on 1 ratings.

Life aboard MSC Magnifica
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.

Launched in 2009, MSC Magnifica at 89,600 GT carries 2,550 passengers. She is one MSC Cruise Line's "Musica" family of ships. The interior décor of wood and marble, soft furnishings and colour reflects high Italian quality. English-speaking Italians have aimed this ship at English-speakers – but expect many German-speakers and others. The vessel is roomy, with plenty of lounges and bars, and has excellent alternative restaurants offering Italian and Japanese fare. Hear music day and night. Your fellow guests will be an eclectic mix from Europe and North America. MSC Cruises are family orientated, and children are very much catered for, filling the ship in school holidays. Children sail free on certain itineraries, sharing a cabin with two adults. The Mini Club (ages three to ten), organises arts and crafts activities, dancing, painting courses, treasure hunts and a mini-Olympics.

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).

Ninety-eight ‘Ocean View’ cabins on deck 8 have obstructed views, so be alert to this. Suites also have a large lounger area and walk-in closet, vanity desk with hair dryer. Some very popular staterooms are at the aft of the ship with views of the wake from balcony cabins. There are 18 suites with a private balcony, no single cabins, and 17 that are wheelchair-accessible.

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.

There’s no tea or coffee for lunch and dinner in the dining rooms, only in the buffet. You may have to ask for milk. For a quick breakfast or lunch choose the lido Sahara buffet, offering the utmost quality and variety in Italian and international cuisine, or the pool-deck fast-food grill and pizzeria. Coffee/tea and pastries are available at several bars near the atrium. Each of the 17 bars is inspired by a different theme and offers an excellent wine and food selection. Restaurants at breakfast and lunch may have you seated with others of a different language, given the continental background of the passengers.

Entertainment
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.

Fitness programs include a small gym with classes, and courts that include a shortened tennis court, jogging area, shuffleboard, mini-golf, a golf simulator, and table tennis. The MSA Aurea Spa facility comes with all the expected health treatments – colourful, and boasting two Turkish baths, three hot tubs and two saunas, all private and with great views. The Spas are operated by Blue Ocean, and treatments include acupuncture. Children are well provided for, from three years to late teens. A “baby-parking” service is helpful when parents want to go on shore excursions.
