MSC Opera Cruises

4.5
(from 2 verified customers)

MSC Opera has been in service since 2004. In July 2015 she returned from a refit with more balcony cabins, public areas, restaurants, and kids’ areas. Extended by 24m, at 65,000 GT, with 194 cabins added, she now carries 2142 passengers.

A refined style, precious materials and attention to detail make MSC Opera a cruise ship that really is something to sing about! Built along more classic lines than her sisters in the Musica and Fantasia classes, making a special atmosphere onboard while enabling you to visit those destinations that are inaccessible to larger vessels.
