Built in 2006, MSC Musica holds up to 3,223 passengers, with a crew of 1,014. Spanning 964 feet, this was the largest ship in the MSC Cruises fleet when it was launched. It appeals to an international clientele of all ages, with glamorous decor, a variety of activities and gourmet cuisine.
MSC Musica ventures much further than its Mediterranean base. It’s possible to book transatlantic sailings from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Venice, Italy, stopping along the way in the beautiful subtropical islands of Tenerife and Madeira. Shorter itineraries allow passengers to travel around the Mediterranean, visiting Palma de Mallorca, Malta and Greece. In Athens, guests can discover the Acropolis, and in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, a tour of the city's colonial past is a popular shore excursion.
Onboard the MSC Musica, there are 173 outside cabins, 275 inside cabins, and 18 suites, including Suite 15020, in which Sophia Loren stayed on the ship's maiden voyage. Seventeen cabins are wheelchair accessible. All staterooms offer a flat-screen TV, minibar, safe, spacious closets, bathroom with shower, bathrobes and an ice bucket which is replenished daily.
MSC Musica has 11 lounges and bars, including two on the pool deck. For active pursuits, there is a gym, a variety of fitness classes, miniature golf, table tennis and table football. There are two pools and four hot tubs, a Balinese-themed spa with Turkish baths and saunas as well as a number of beauty and relaxation treatments on offer. This is a cruise ship that delivers something for everyone, in dazzling surrounds.
