The MSC Musica was built and launched in 2006, and was the first in MSC’s line of Musica class ships. With a total of 1,275 cabins, she can carry well over 2,500 people, and she’s an enormous 964 feet in length. The Musica cruises in a wide range of locations, specializing in Mediterranean cruises that traverse Italy, Spain, France, and Tunisia, with ports of call at Genoa, Civitavecchia, Palermo, La Goulette, and Marseille, as well as cruises of Venice and the Adriatic Sea. Equally fabulous are the Musica’s tours of the United Arab Emirates and Oman, which include stops in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Muscat.
An amazing sight to behold both inside and out, the Musica is a truly beautiful ship. Her central foyer is an incredible work of art, with a shimmering three-tier waterfall and an amazing crystalline floor that provides the perfect touch of elegance to the sumptuously decorated reception area. This opulent theme is continued all over the ship, from the rich blues of the casino, to the rich black and gold of the ship’s specialty restaurant, and the stunning sparkle of the theatre. Each cabin and suite is decorated with the same attention to detail, and passengers will find a wide range of different berthing options on boat the MSC Musica. There are interior cabins, ocean view, and balcony cabins, as well as a range of luxury suites, each with their own balcony. For passengers with disabilities or limited mobility, there are interior, exterior, and balcony cabins with accessible floor plans.
