MSC Musica - Grazioso Deck - Bar della Cascata, Atrium, Restaurant l'Oleandro, Reception

First impressions are very important in life. So it comes as no surprise that when laying eyes on MSC Musica's three deck high Atrium, you will most probably be a little overwhelmed. Hovering over the base of a backlit cascade is a glass stage where a female quartet pays homage to the vessel's name. Benvenuti a bordo!

MSC Musica's impressive three-deck Atrium

The use of glass, wood, black marble and colorful carpets makes the elliptical Atrium elegant yet upbeat - the style that prevails on the whole ship. With a huge Reception and Purser's Office Desk, plus the very popular Bar della Cascata, this is MSC Musica's pulsating heart. Enjoy a cappuccino here in the morning, standing at the bar -  just like the Italians do!

Come back to the Bar della Cascata (the Bar of the Waterfall) before dinner for a pre-dinner drink, as the Atrium slowly fills with people. Pretty soon the doors to the adjacent L'Oleandro Dining Room will open!

Restaurant L'Oleandro

Done in an attractive Art Nouveau style, the L'Oleandro Dining Room has a beige and brown color scheme. One of two main dining rooms, L'Oleandro is definitely huge but the designers have used all tricks in the book to make the room look less massive than it is. Dinner is served here in two seatings; prepare to fight for a table for two as there are just not many of those around.
