Passengers’ reviews of MSC Magnifica


Yakov: "We were on a cruise on MSC Magnifica in the summer of 2016. I’m an experienced traveler and have been on a cruise 6 times already, and yet this cruise ship deserved the highest praise concerning all the parameters. There are indeed no things available on the cruise ships belonging to other cruise lines, for instance, a screen in the swimming pool, laundry service, etc. And yet, I liked everything that can be found here:
- Food in the restaurant and the buffet
- Atrium that was interesting every evening
- Cleanliness and attentive attitude of the staff
- Theater is fantastic performing excellent various musicals every day (the cycle of them is designed for one week)
- Very sophisticated and tasty midnight buffet before the end of the cruise
- Arrangement of games in the swimming pool".

VOVINA:  "The cruise ship is cozy enough and is not very small. I did not like all the layouts but it is clean and fresh everywhere. It was comfortable staying in the oceanview cabin located on deck 5 because it is in the middle part of the ship. The reception desk can be found at the same deck as well as one of the restaurants where we had breakfast and lunch. Way out to the port was very often organized from this deck. I was surprised by the tiny TV located in the cabin as compared to the huge plasma that can be found in the cabin on Costa neoRomantica. Evening performances impressed me very very much!!! Extraordinary costumes, beautiful stage design, and interesting performances including complicated pieces and tricks were just breathtaking, being a pleasant completion of the cruise days!"
