If you’ve been clicking around on the Friendly Planet Travel Web site, you’ve probably seen our wide array of Mediterranean and Far East cruise vacations. And along with our list of cruise options is an equally long list of the cruise ships that sail them. In our new series, "All Aboard," I’m going to give you the full scoop on all of the ships that cruise with Friendly Planet Travel.
I told you about our Mediterranean Golf Cruise on Monday, and today I want to tell you a little about the MSC Sinfonia, that particular vacation’s cruise ship.
The MSC Sinfonia was inspired by the great symphonies of Europe’s finest composers, and offers a harmonious blend of culture, relaxation, and adventure. Elegant Italian ambiance abounds from every corner of the ship — from its polished woods and exquisite artwork to its upscale restaurants and first-class spa.
Each of the Sinfonia’s 777 cabins feature an inviting décor with warm colors, subtle lighting, tasteful furnishings, and comfortable amenities. They’re also all equipped with air conditioning, mini bar, radio, TV, 24-hour room service, a private safe, and an en suite bathroom.
While cruising through the Mediterranean, Friendly Planeteers enjoy the ship’s authentic Mediterranean cuisine at the Sinfonia’s two onboard restaurants, Il Covo and Il Galeone. And if you’re in the mood for lighter fare, the Café Le Baroque or La Terraza Buffet have an array of delectable items from the grill or pizzeria.
In addition to visiting some of the most beautiful ports-of-call in Italy, Monaco, Spain, and Tunisia, the Sinfonia also offers countless onboard leisure opportunities for both day and night.
While sailing between ports, golfers will be able to practice their swing in the golf simulators or fine-tune their skills on the miniature golf course. Breathe in the fresh Mediterranean air as you jog around the outdoor track or swim laps in one of two outdoor pools. Stay active in the Sinfonia’s state-of-the-art fitness center, while taking in panoramic views of the sea.
When the sun goes down, the Sinfonia’s nightlife comes to life, with a show at the San Carlo Theater, cocktails at the Buddha Bar or Manhattan Bar, a game of poker at the casino, or dancing at Pasha nightclub.
There’s literally something for everyone aboard the MSC Sinfonia. Amenities include:
Safety deposit box
24-hour room service
Video game room
Children’s play area
