Cruise Ship Review: MSC Magnifica (3 day mini-cruise from Hamburg to Southampton) – September 2014

In September 2014, I took a three day mini-cruise from Hamburg to Southampton on the MSC Magnifica, the cruise was a bargain at £109 per person in a balcony cabin. Whilst on the ship, I took video footage of most of the public spaces, including open decks, bars, lounges, restaurants, shops and swimming pools. This film presents these, along with a review of the ship, food and cruise experience.

The video is taken firstly at Hamburg Cruise Centre, and then on board the ship from Decks 5 – 7, 10, and 13-16. The identified locations within the video are as follows: Cabin 10071, Sport Centre, MSC Club Solarium, Il Bar Del Sole, Deck 15 sunbathing areas, Deck 13 pool area, Deck 13 indoor pool, Video Arcade, T32 Disco & Bowling, La Barchetta Bar, Deck 13 midship outdoor stage, Sahara Cafeteria, Deck 13 alfresco dining area, Royal Theatre, Atlantic City Casino, Card Room, Art Gallery, Bike Corner, Central Atrium, Cyber Cafe, Photo Gallery, L’Olimpiade Sporting Bar, L’Ametista Lounge, Deck 8 Promenade, Poker Room, Tiger Bar, Magnifica Meeting Room, Topazio Bar, Duty Free Shop, MSC Travel Agency, Il Rubino, Ruby Bar, Purple Bar, Quattro Venti Restaurant, Reception Guest Service, Le Gocce Bar, and the L’Edera Restaurant.

This was an excellent ship, and a very enjoyable mini-cruise. I would definitely do this again and recommend it to others. I would also recommend Hamburg as a cruise embarkation point. It was much more efficient than other cruise embarkation points that I have used in the past.

Great video, we have just returned from a 7 day cruise on MSC Magnifica and totally endorse your comments, especially the drinks package, which is unbeatable.

I enjoy watching your videos…..really informative.Got to say though that I think the food on this cruise leaves alot to be desired.Hope you’ve got more cruises to show us in the near future 🙂
