Have You Ever Heard ‘Seven Nation Army’?
You may have heard the original White Stripes recording of their huge hit Seven Nation Army, but one of MSC’s cruise ships, Magnifica, surprised onlookers in Hamburg by playing the song on it’s horns. This was as part of the celebrations to mark the 825th anniversary of the Port of Hamburg.
The 95,128-ton MSC Magnifica has the capacity to carry 3,223 passengers and approx 1,038 crew members.
The ships 16 decks include 3 swimming pools, 5 restaurants, theatre, 4D cinema, casino, 9 bars and lounges, fitness centre and spa, 52 suites with private balcony and a massive 779 balcony cabins as well as outside and interior options.
A great advantage to cruising with MSC if you are travelling with children, is that on most sailings kids go free. You still pay for charges but it is a massive saving. They have the same kids facilities as most other major cruise lines, so there is no compromise there. In fact, as an Italian cruise line I would say they definitely serve the best fresh pizza, gelato and coffee at sea.
The Italian flair can be seen in the opulent furnishing in the public areas. I particularly loved the Tiger Bar with it’s ‘Hollywood Glamour’ style staircase.
Of course it wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity for some designer shopping. Onboard MSC Magnifica you can find all sorts of shops from designer handbags, Ralph Lauren, logo shops, perfume and duty free.
It’s hard not to pop in and have a little look, when you pass a window display like this one.
It’s a great excuse to treat yourself to a little souvenir from your cruise.
MSC are a true family cruise line, whether travelling alone or in a group, you always get that sense of family.
