MSC Musica (MSC Cruises)


MSC Musica was the first of the Musica class. At the time of launching in 2006, she was MSC’s biggest ship.


Although her original stated passenger capacity is 2,536, she is capable of approximately 3,223 passengers as MSC Cruises retrofitted the ship with one or more pull-down bunks in most cabins.

The bunks are aimed at children and are part of MSC Cruises’ ‘children go free’ policy.
