Life aboard MSC Sinfonia
MSC Sinfonia is one of the earlier and smallest MSCV ships. In March 2020 she departs South America for the Mediterranean, and offers mostly 7-night cruises out of Ancona, an Italian port facing Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. Visit two ports in Croatia, two ports in Greece, and two ports in Italy, with only one sea day. This region attracts travellers interested in exploring history, culture and ancient buildings. The port of Sarande in Albania and the ‘Albanian Riviera’ is attracting growing tourism. The ports offer magnificent scenery, beaches, and historic post-card ruins. Each year from November to the following March Sinfonia sails the coast of Brazil. The Line offers good affordable cruise vacations the Italian Way, filled with fun activities and having a wide appeal. There are lots of children during school holidays.

MSC Sinfonia has been in service since 2002. In March 2015 she returned from a refit – extended by 24 m with 194 cabins added – to carry 1952 passengers. MSC Sinfonia is geared to a continental European audience, and English-speakers will be in the minority. MSC Sinfonia offers good value for the cruise fares charged, and a truly Italian-style cruise experience in stylish surroundings. The exterior deck can get somewhat crowded. Children have three play areas and their favourite, an ice-cream parlour. Smoking and queuing are ubiquitous. Side-stream smoke is difficult to avoid. Many extras are payable. On some itineraries children under 18 cruise free when sharing a cabin with two adults.

Accommodation
Two-thirds of the cabins have an outside view, and of these just one-quarter have a private balcony. Interior and Ocean View cabins are small at 12.9 sq.m. All cabins have interactive TV, AC, telephone, hairdryer, mini-bar/fridge, safe, wardrobe, bathroom with shower, and cotton towels. Two single beds can be converted to a double bed. Outside cabins have a large rectangular viewing window. The 132 suites with private balcony come with a large double bed, a sitting area with sofa, a substantial walk-in wardrobe, bathrobes, a well-stocked mini-bar, and an expanded bathroom with tub. The suites are well laid out and nicely furnished.

Many ‘Ocean View’ cabins on deck 7 have obstructed views, so be alert to this. For all cabins continental breakfast is complimentary from 7.30 to 10 am, while room service snacks can be bought at other times, but there is a per-item charge for other orders. For suites, a basket of fruit is provided at embarkation, and replenished daily. There are five cabins for the disabled, and no single cabins. Kids under 18 cruise free on some itineraries sharing a cabin with 2 adults!

Food and Dining
The principal dining room is Il Galeone Restaurant, with open seating for breakfast and lunch, and two seatings for dinner. The Il Covo Restaurant shares the same menu. Dining is notable for its quantity rather than its quality, though the food is a highlight for many passengers. 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. La Terrazza is a casual, self-serve, 24-hour buffet. Café del Mare is a grill area for fast food. A number of other cafés are located around the ship. MSC Cruises provide better-quality ingredients, mostly from Europe, featuring Italian cuisine and regional wines, and daily fresh pizza dough and sauces.

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 coffee and pastries head for Le Baroque Café. There are eight themed bars that include the Buddha Bar, Vivaldi Piano Lounge, and Shelagh’s Irish Pub. Dining at breakfast and lunch in Il Galeone may have you seated with others of a different language, given the continental background of the passengers.

Entertainment
The two-deck San Carlo Theatre presents productions shows, cabaret, plays and other theatrical presentations. Some productions may be short, just 30 minutes. Entertainment includes Pasha Club Disco, an extensive Internet café; and the San Remo Casino. The ship has a number of bands and small ensembles to provide music for dancing and background. To get away from the constant activity and noise, retire to Library/Card Room, though the library is limited.

The health-spa facilities and treatments include acupuncture, steam room, sauna and beauty parlour. Fitness amenities include a gym, climbing wall, jogging area, two adult pools, two whirlpools and mini golf. Children have three play areas and their favourite, an ice-cream parlour. Teens have their own club and video area on the top deck. A few occasional notes: Children sail free on certain itineraries, and in July/August there may be 400 or so. Heavy smokers are everywhere, and the staff are more focused on Italian passengers. Port calls may be short time-wise.
