MSC ORCHESTRA FACTS

Description
The MSC Orchestra is one of MSC Italian Cruises’ newest cruise vessels. It’s also one of the biggest and could carry more than 2,000 passengers. While the vessel is very elegant and there are a lot of facilities designed for adults, there are also playrooms and entertainment facilities for small children and teens. Safety is also a big thing onboard the MSC Orchestra. The world’s most important rulers prefer to travel with the line because of the tight security the vessel could offer. As a newly-built ship, it’s also eco-friendly. The line is based in Italy, but the vessel is largely English-speaking.

Destinations
MSC Italian Cruises travels to top destinations around the world. Right now, the line sails to the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, South Africa, North and South Americas, Transatlantic destinations, and Northern Europe. Among these cruises, though, which are held all-year-round, the highlights are the Mediterranean and Northern Europe cruises.

History
The MSC Orchestra is the second vessel of the Musica class to be made for the MSC Italian Cruises line. It was built in 2007 by the Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire, France.

Dining
There are three no-cover restaurants onboard the MSC Orchestra. Two of them are open for three main meals, the other, only for lunch. The L’Ibiscus and the Villa Borghese serve choice Italian food for the whole day. The dining atmosphere in these two main dining areas is more formal. For casual lunches, you may want to try the La Piazetta buffet restaurant.

You can also dine at the 4 Seasons Restaurant in Deck 13. They serve a la carte fusion Italian dishes. Passengers who are in the mood for some Asian cuisine may also dine at the Shanghai. This ship has 16 bars and lounges where passengers can get refreshments, relax, and interact with the other guests.

Entertainment
All MSC Cruises have fitness and wellness centers. The highlight of the ship, though, is the big Convent Garden Theatre. This can accommodate 1240 passengers. There is also a disco facility and a posh casino onboard. Those who prefer to get their adrenaline rush through Virtual Reality may also play games in the video game room.

Cabins
The best cabins onboard the MSC Orchestra are suites with balconies. These have the best amenities in the vessel including a spacious wardrobe, internet connection, and a floor space of 25 square meters. The ordinary cabins range in size, from 14 square meters to 21 square meters. Outside cabins have picture windows, although the view in some parts of the ship may be restricted. The biggest outside cabin is 18 square meters, while the biggest inside cabin is 21 square meters.
