Two cruise ships this weekend in Heraklion
“Orchestra” cruise ship arrived on Saturday with 2.284 passengers and “Sinfonia” cruise ship arrived on Sunday with 1.301 passengers.
Launched on 14 May 2007, the spectacular MSC Orchestra is one of MSC Cruises’ newest ships. The second of the ‘Musica-class’ line of cruise ships, MSC Orchestra offers the perfect blend of design, comfort and safety. Airy open spaces and MSC Cruises’ signature Italian style make MSC Orchestra a stylish pioneer for future cruise ship projects and designs.
Onboard the luxury MSC Orchestra cruise ship you will be enthralled by the wide spectrum of entertainment facilities – jog on a dedicated track, indulge in a rejuvenating Turkish bath, dine at the Shanghai Chinese restaurant, relax in the exotic animal-print Savannah Bar, sumptuous Purple Bar or enjoy Hollywood-style glamour in the chic Zaffiro Bar. Try your luck at the Palm Beach Casino, dance the night away in the disco or take in a show at the Covent Garden Theatre, with a programme packed with entertaining shows with music.
MSC Orchestra boasts a total of 16 decks, with sauna and whirlpool facilities, a wide choice of restaurants and cosy family pizzerias. Kids can go wild in the Jungle Adventure playroom whilst teens will quickly feel at home in the Teen’s Club.
In 2015, MSC Orchestra offers cruise voyages to Dubai, The Emirates And Oman, Northern Europe, Mediterranean and Caribbean & Antilles.
The almost €200 million “renaissance” of MSC Armonia, MSC Lirica, MSC Sinfonia and MSC Opera will add exciting new entertainment options, technological advancements, extended shops and up to nearly 200 new cabins per ship. The four Lirica Class ships are currently 251 metres long, weigh 60,000 tons and carry 2,069 travellers. After the “renaissance programme”, the ships will be 275 meters long, weigh 65,000 tons and carry 2,680 travellers, boasting 193 additional cabins (plus 59 new cabins for crew members).
Once the “renaissance” is achieved in 2015, guests will benefit from greater facilities and the ever growing market demand in South Africa will be met.
