MSC Orchestra Reviews

Naomi Atkinson

star rating

We’ve cruised before with Royal Caribbean and Thomson. This was by far our best cruise! The ship felt brand new and was spotless. The quality of the food was the best we’ve had at sea, the choice was fantastic and the self service buffet seemed never ending. There was a lot of Italian and Spanish guests but most of them seemed excited to practise their English! The ship never felt crowded and there was always space in the bars and public areas. We will be cruising with MSC again in the near future!

This is the 4th time I have sailed on the Orchestra and still cannot find fault. The cruise was fantastic as always and the ship is beautiful. I tell all my friends about MSC as they are brilliant. The food is always fresh and we love the variation of cuisine. The Mediterranean food they serve is authentic and lovely. this time, we also dined in the Shanghai restaurant for the first time where we had Chinese food one evening which was some of the best I’ve ever had! Even on a 2 week sailing, we barely got through the 16 bars but its great as the bars are never too crowded or busy. Fantastic again and cant wait for our next!

It’s a great ship if you are looking to travel to somewhere a little different as the ports of call are normally far from the norm.

We had a great trip visiting all the little gems that you wouldn’t normally get to see.

The food was excellent, the ship is clean and that’s all you really need. The entertainment was good.

All in all it’s a good ship and amazing value for money.

I had a wonderful trip recently on the MSC Orchestra. The cruise was fab, everything we could have asked for. Food, cabin, staff and the entertainment were all excellent. We really enjoyed the many dance classes they offered and found the night time shows different to what we had experienced on other lines. No comedians but lots of other things, such as concerts and magic shows. A great cruise!

Having cruised with the Royal Caribbean previously I was expecting something of a much higher standard that what we received. When we arrived on the Orchestra it was fairly early but I was disappointed at seeing dirty toilets, dirty pots left out on tables and the buffet areas looked as though a bomb had landed. Table after table of leftover food was left on the tables with waiters just stood around doing very little. When we finally got into our cabin it was very nice thankfully but the Room service let the ship down again. We waited 2 days and numerous phone calls visits to reception just to request a laundry bag for it to be delivered to the cabin so my husband could have his jacket pressed and a pair of trousers washed! We had paid extra for an all inclusive package and were charged for room service which was included only to be taken off the account. There were things not working in the cabin and even after a week travelling we left the ship with things not working. We booked the early sitting in the restaurant and both the food and service was very good, unfortunately we could not say that for the speciality restaurant, the service was slow and standard of food very average. Whilst this seems a constant complaining exercise paying over £2,400.00 I expected more. We spent 1 day at sea and we felt packed in like sardines. In our opinion if you wanted space then this is not the ship for you, I would say that there were not enough sun beds to go around. We undertook one of the trips and whilst it was enjoyable it certainly was very expensive for what you received . €75 euros each with snacks included which consisted of an apple and banana with a hot or cold drink, not what one would of hoped for. As a group of friends travelling together we made the best of it but certainly was not the best cruise we had encountered so disappointing experience in numerous areas.
