I have sailed on MSC Musica before but not Costa.  What is the difference?  Thank you.

 

The difference between MSC and Costa is that one of those is good, and sometimes really good....and if you choose Yacht club it varies between very good and excellent. The other one is poor but can sometimes be good enough!

There's already a MSC vs Costa thread on both companies boards. 

Have a browse at them first. 

PS Costa`s web site, login etc actually works! 

Although moderators locked my MSC vs. Costa thread on the MSC forum, otherwise I'd bump it for you, but at least it's still there.  The Costa vs. MSC thread on the Costa forum remains unlocked.

In simple and short terms, MSC is a four star cruise, while Costa is a 3 star budget Cruise.

 

MSC has 6 grand shows on a typical 7 night Cruise, while Costa has only 4 Grand shows.

 

The MSC buffet is open for 20 hours a day while the Costa buffet is open for 7-8 hours a day.

 

Costa is very very Italian,  while MSC is more multinational.

 

With MSC, you usually get the best prices when The Cruise is first announced in the beginning,  and the prices gradually go up with time.

Costa is the reverse, the prices fall with time and four to six weeks prior to sailing they are usually the lowest.

 

MSC offers a status match, while Costa does not.

In fact no cruise line offers such a status match.

 

MSC offers up to 50% discount on the basic fare for healthcare workers with hard copy proof.

No other cruise line offers this and certainly not Costa

 

Costa has some excellent bargains for Cruises coming up later this year 2021, while MSC prices for 2021 Cruises have already gone up significantly.

 

There are plenty more differences and I could go on and on, but this should suffice

You are most welcome, helping others gives me oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine.

“Emma Cruises” did an informative YouTube video on this. Not sure if we’re allowed to link to such things. 

Yes you can

Many have posted links to her videos

Never gone with Costa, but that's exactly my impression from my friends whom have done both Costa and MSC. Many thanks and have a nice day!...
