Cruise ship review

Magnificence in a class of its own

Masterfully combining the relaxed refinement of the Musica Class with the variety and opulence of our Fantasia Class flagships, MSC Magnifica brings cruise travellers the best of both worlds. 
Marrying traditional craftsmanship with ground-breaking design, the superb venues on this ship spoil you for choice, including 5 gourmet restaurantsserving food from around the world and 12 designer-themed bars. Kids and teens love their own themed venues and special clubs that help break the ice with new friends. 

The ship’s award-winning MSC Aurea Spa brings you traditional Balinese massages and ultramodern beauty treatments: a sauna, Turkish bath, fitness centre, thalassotherapy room and relaxation area.  

The leisure facilities are no less impressive, with a lush open-airpool complex, 4 whirlpools, a solarium and a skylit indoor pool with Magrodome retractable roof, so you can enjoy perfect bathing whatever the weather. Then there’s tennisminigolfbowlingbilliards, a high-tech gym and dedicated jogging track.  

With this variety, you can be sure to live every moment to the full. The entertainment continues into the evening, with a spectacular casino, panoramic discotheque, 4D cinema, Internet café, cigar lounge, plush 1,200 seat theatre and live entertainment in the bar lounges.  For a quieter evening, step out onto the deck for a romantic drink under the stars, and watch the waves go by. In every way, MSC Magnifica lives up to her name – she offers a cruise
