MSC Cruises, the Italian shipping company of the Aponte family, originally from Sorrento and headquartered in Switzerland, invited, together with Cruise News, the press for lunch and a ship tour aboard the MSC Musica, which is traveling the coasts of Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina based in Rio de Janeiro.
The experience and the elegant and sophisticated style of the Mediterranean are characteristic in the design and decoration in all the ships of the fleet of MSC Cruises, considered the largest global private line in the world.
Lunch took place in the L’Oleandro Restaurant located in the center of the nave, on bridge 6.
After tasting a delicious 5-step menu of traditional Italian cuisine, we start the tour at bridge 14, where the disk Q32, which is precisely the name of the ship’s hull, later converted into MSC Musica by the STX France shipyard.
Ricardo Marengo, Cruise News Director, explaining to the group the meaning of the name Q32.
Continuing on bridge 14, we toured the upper decks, an ideal place to rest lying on a deck chair overlooking the sea on sailing days and further away from the pool area. Going down to bridge 13, you will find the central pool area, hot tubs and a refreshing waterfall. A characteristic of MSC ships is that these areas are spacious and open, as well as very pleasant.
Crossing the ship towards the bow, we go down to bridge 6, where the La Scala Theater, with capacity for more than 1,200 people, with corduroy seats and elegant lighting design. The sound and acoustics are impeccable and they have exclusive dance corps and artists, dedicated to offering international level shows every night.
The Tucano Lounge it is one of the ideal meeting points, either after the theater or as a plan to start the night on board. Good drinks, live music and a sophisticated space to enjoy as friends, alone or in company.
