Mediterranean and Europe
Launched on 14 May 2007, the spectacular MSC Orchestra is one of MSC Cruises' newest ships. The second of the ‘Musica-class’ line of cruise ships, MSC Orchestra offers the perfect blend of design, comfort and safety. Airy open spaces and MSC Cruises’ signature Italian style make MSC Orchestra a stylish pioneer for future cruise ship projects and designs.
Onboard the luxury MSC Orchestra cruise ship you will be enthralled by the wide spectrum of entertainment facilities - jog on a dedicated track, indulge in a rejuvenating Turkish bath, dine at the Shanghai Chinese restaurant, relax in the exotic animal-print Savannah Bar, sumptuous Purple Bar or enjoy Hollywood-style glamour in the chic Zaffiro Bar. Try your luck at the Palm Beach Casino, dance the night away in the disco or take in a show at the Covent Garden Theatre, with a programme packed with entertaining shows with music.
MSC Orchestra boasts a total of 16 decks, with sauna and whirlpool facilities, a wide choice of restaurants and cosy family pizzerias. Kids can go wild in the Jungle Adventure playroom whilst teens will quickly feel at home in the Teen’s Club.
On Board Highlights
MSC Orchestra offers 2 main restaurants, L’Ibiscus and Villa Borghese. Each one boasts an excellent selection of dishes made from the high quality ingredients and the maximum amount of flair and care. Like the freshly baked bread every product is just as fresh as we can get it. Dishes range from traditional and tasty Mediterranean fare, to the most refined international recipes. For a quick lunch choose La Piazzetta buffet restaurant offering top notch Italian and international cuisine.
You might not have expected to find a superb chinese restaurant on a Med', Baltic or fjords cruise but that's exactly what the Shanhai is: a top quality chinese restaurant, servering everything from spicy Szechuan cuisine to the sweeter Cantonese fare of Southern China. If you prefer a hearty snack, then the mid-morning Dim Sum is simply sensational and as good as you'll find in any Chinatown from San Francisco to Soho.
MSC Cruises’ uncompromising dedication to its passengers is nowhere more evident than the unrivalled entertainment programmes and facilities offered on board MSC Orchestra, with its state-of-the-art 1240 seat Covent Garden Theatre, futuristic R32 Disco and Palm Beach Casino with over 600 square metres of casino gaming and Virtual Games, video games room.
