“If you are on the search for the ultimate conference venue that is also ideal for team building or even an incentive package look no further than the luxury MSC Sinfonia cruise ship which returns to Southern African waters in November this year for an extended summer season operating out of Durban.

Referred to as the “finest floating hotel” ever seen in South Africa, MSC Sinfonia can offer excellent value and an extensive range of sophisticated facilities and amenities in an exclusive environment “away from it all at sea” . In fact there is no other local venue that can offer so much in a contained environment while also cruising the azure waters of the Indian Ocean islands.

One of the MSC Cruises’ stable of 11 magnificent cruise liners, MSC Sinfonia enjoys the trademark Italian design and superlative style of her sister ships. This, combined with the most contemporary infrastructure, accommodation, fine cuisine in a range of restaurants, around the clock entertainment as well as sport and leisure options has proved successful in meeting the needs of the most discerning of corporate clients.

MSC Sinfonia features a modern 200 seat business centre complete with well equipped meeting rooms and state-of-the-art technical infrastructure. Among the venues available for large functions is the ship’s world class 1 600 seat San Carlo Theatre while there are also other more intimate venues to suit smaller groups. All the venues ensure privacy, security and the capacity for flexibility in creating the perfect environment for each particular occasion.

An incredible variety of indoor and outdoor sports and leisure facilities ensure a range of choices for structured team building sessions or simply the wherewithal for enjoying leisure time out. On deck these include a state-of-the-art pool deck featuring two swimming pools and a jacuzzi, a jogging track, volley ball court and even a golf simulator for golf enthusiasts. Indoors there is a fully equipped gym and fitness centre with 180 degree ocean views and qualified instructors to lead aerobics, yoga or even the latest dance moves. The sumptuous MSC Aurea Spa and beauty centre attended by specialist masseurs from Bali and other wellness experts offer the chance for pampering and indulging delegates.

A range of accommodation options, the finest Italian cuisine in the ship’s two indoor restaurants or the more casual buffet out on deck, world class entertainment from live shows to pop, classical and jazz bands in the theatre, the lounges and in the seven individually themed bars, the thrill of the casino and late night disco dancing are all included in the fare to make a cruise aboard MSC Sinfonia a truly “best value” choice as a conferencing opportunity.

For incentive and conference organisers who choose to include partner’s of delegates, the “50% discount for partner special” provides an ideal add on. Cruising is also the perfect environment for families and with kids under 18 cruising free this is one conference venue where there is no need to leave the family at home. There is just so much on offer that the entire family is guaranteed to have the time of their lives.

MSC Sinfonia also features an internet cafe, cigar room, library, card room, mini club, teen’s club, exchange office and medical centre.

During the 2010/11 cruise season MSC Sinfonia will depart on a regular schedule from Durban. A range of cruise options include the popular three night cruises to the uninhabited pristine beaches of Portuguese Islands, and four night cruises which include stops in Mozambique’s bustling capital city of Maputo, the trendy Barra Lodge water sports resort or the idyllic turquoise waters of the Portuguese Islands.

MSC Crociere currently has the most modern fleet in the world, comprising 11 ships: MSC Splendida and MSC Fantasia (the largest ships ever built for a European ship owner), MSC Poesia, MSC Orchestra, MSC Musica, MSC Sinfonia, MSC Armonia, MSC Opera, MSC Lirica and MSC Melody. MSC Magnifica was launched in March this year. The fleet cruises year round in the Mediterranean and seasonally in Northern Europe, the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean, North America and Canada, South America, the Indian Ocean, South and West Africa. MSC Crociere is the only company in the world to receive the “6 Golden Pearls” award from the Bureau Veritas in recognition of its high level of quality management and environmental protection. MSC Crociere cares about the welfare of children, and as a responsible market leader, it believes in making a positive impact in the regions where it operates. To this end, the company recently forged partnership with UNICEF to fund a community project aimed at providing disadvantaged children with a high quality education.
