You are going to will love that MSC Orchestra promises more space, that there are more balcony cabins, more swimming pools, more restaurants (there's even a sushi restaurant), more bars and designer venues. And how could they not love the glamorous finishing touches like the central foyer's see-through piano floating suspended above shimmering water, the palm-lined swimming pool and the theatre that's bigger than any we have on land in SA. Let's also not forget the full gym, or the pampering Turkish baths and saunas. There's more for the kids too. A LED wall, a video games room, and outdoor games like mini golf, tennis and volleyball. They even have a swimming pool to call their own. The elegant MSC Orchestra, with all her superlative choices in wining, dining, shopping, and entertainment for young and old, promises that life on board can be exactly what you want it to be.

Orchestra's features, most of which specifically designed for families, include an array of sports, leisure and dinner possibilities. Orchestra guests are usually from any age and nationality.

 

MSC Orchestra features an improved range of dining venues in comparison to her older fleet-mates. However, a majority of passengers prefer to dine in the MDRs, in which evening meals are set-tablemates, set-seating affairs. All other evening options feature an extra charge. L'Ibiscus and Villa Borghese are nearly identical in size, and both serve as main dining rooms. Breakfast and lunch are open seating.

 

As on all other MSC vessels, Orchestra has a casino, library, Spa and Fitness center, three pools and eight jacuzzis, plus sauna and steam room. The entertainment is tailored to multinational guests, so there are fewer acts relying on the spoken word and more emphasizing music. The Covent Garden Theatre is the spot for daily shows, with two sittings, at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. The evening shows are varied, featuring from classical concerts to magic shows.
