MSC Orchestra flaunts MSC Cruises’ signature Italian style while offering an innovative blend of design, comfort, and safety. Built in 2007, this was the second ship built in MSC Cruises’ ‘Musica-class’. Majority of the accommodations on board are balcony staterooms, some with private balconies, but no matter which stateroom you choose MSC provides luxurious accommodations for all.

Msc Orchesta's two elegant main restaurants feature seven-course dishes prepared by skilled Italian Chefs. Shanghai, the only Chinese restaurant at sea, is a bonus to the dining experience on board MSC Orchestra. For those who are more indulgent, perhaps they would like to visit the Chocolate Bar on board.

There are ten bars on MSC Orchestra, two of which are open-air.  The themed bars throughout the ship create an interesting aura for passengers to experience and enjoy. Whether it is at the Irish pub, the exotic Savannah Bar, the luxurious Purple Bar or the chic Hollywood-style Zaffiro Bar, passengers are sure to be enticed by the variety of style and culture.

With an interesting and diverse environment, as well as a plethora of activities for passengers of all ages, MSC Orchestra is appealing to all ages. Children can enjoy the Jungle Adventure playroom, while teens can relax in the Teen’s Club. The Covent Garden Theatre offers a wide range of nightly programs packed with entertaining shows and music. Adults can also enjoy music by dancing the night away at the Shaker Lounge. In addition, the Palm Beach Casino, MSC Aurea Spa, library, art hall, and the cinema provide endless opportunities to stay entertained on board!
