“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Christopher Columbus

Destination: Mossel Bay ex Cape Town

Mossel Bay is a port town with natural deep-water harbour and population around 130,000. It is located on South Africa’s Southern Cape (Garden Route). This is a major farming and tourism region of Western Cape Province, located approx 400 km (250 ml) east of Cape Town and approx 400 km west of Port Elizabeth. City’s older parts occupy the north-facing side of the peninsula, while the newer straddle the peninsula and spread eastwards along the coast.

Mosselbaai … Activities & Things to Do!

In Mossel Bay, you will never be short of things to do. Activities are aimed at the whole family and there is fun filled stuff to do for every age and taste.

There are many activities to choose from in Mossel Bay. Mosselbaai is not only known for its rich history and pristine blue flag beaches, but also for the great adventure opportunities and the lifelong memories that are made here. The adventure activities are bucket list stuff because of its amazing location. With 320 sunny days a year, you are definitely spoiled for choice.

So, if you are an adrenalin junkie, or just have a more adventurous spirit, you will find plenty of advice on this page. Choose from surfing, Shark Cage Diving, sky-diving, heli-flips, scuba or deep sea fishing. Maybe you like to be land-based, then sandboarding, quad biking, horseriding, mountain biking, hiking or a safari might interest you more.

MSC Sinfonia pays homage to the symphonies of the great composers in a thoroughly modern reinterpretation of the classic cruise experience. 

Stylish designer interiors combine clean lines and every modern comfort with the warmth of traditional natural wood, brass, and marble, bringing each stunning venue on this ship its own unique feel.

Even before MSC Sinfonia sets sail, stepping on board is like embarking on a voyage of discovery. With its impressive array of new features and facilities, the ship is now even better equipped to satisfy every need.

MSC have added spacious new cabins with balconies to delight their guests with superb panoramic views. They enlarged the restaurant and buffet areas to serve up an even greater variety of culinary treats.

Also included is a new 319 m2 area to fill with music and dancing. With the help of prestigious partners like Chicco, LEGO® and Namco®, they have created fabulous new play areas for children of all ages, starting with an exciting spray park packed with fun water features. And to offer even more routes to relaxation, they have enhanced the lavish MSC Aurea Spa with more space for massages.

The Teatro San Carlo is an ultramodern reinterpretation of traditional lines. Please note that access to the theatre for the evening shows is by booking only (not needed for the other ships). There are three quick and easy ways to book: connect to the free onboard wi-fi network with your smartphone or tablet, use the touch screens on different decks of the ship, or ask at the Reception.

All this is just a taste of what a cruise on MSC Sinfonia can offer. There’s a world of new experiences to discover on board, day after day, moment after moment.
