MSC Sinfonia - Introduction

The MSC Sinfonia - named after the Italian word for symphony - was originally built for the Festival cruise line and called the MS European Stars.  When Festival went defunct in 2004, MSC Cruises acquired the Sinfonia and its sister ship, the MSC Armonia, to join the two brand-new and nearly-identical ships that the cruise line had recently commissioned: the Opera and Lirica. These four ships paved the way for MSC to grow in both the European and North American markets. Today, the line is the fourth largest in the world.  The Sinfonia is a truly beautiful ship. Its interior decor has been inspired by the works of Europe's great classical composers and it's easy to see that great attention to detail was paid during the ship's construction and in subsequent refurbishment projects. While it's not nearly as big as many of the most modern liners, it's still a comfortable and well-equipped vessel that will provide passengers a fabulous holiday experience.

During most of the year, the Sinfonia can be found cruising around the Mediterranean. Popular destinations include Naples, Florence and Catania in Italy, as well as locations in Spain and the French Riviera.

Occasionally, the liner leaves the Med for journeys along the western coast of Africa, stopping at ports of call like Casablanca, Cape Town and Durban.
