MSC Magnifica (MSC Cruises)


MSC Magnifica was the fourth ship built in the Musica class. She was launched in 2009 and sailed on her maiden voyage on March 9th 2010.

We sailed on her during May 2018 and did a live 14-night voyage report from her and have a host of other articles linked from there!


While in Germany in 2014, MSC Magnifica played Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes over it’s horn to celebrate the Port of Hamburg’s 825th birthday.
