MS MSC Orchestra is a cruise ship that was built in 2007 for MSC Cruises. She is the second ship of the Musica class. She could at the time accommodate 2,550 passengers in 1,275 cabins. Most inside cabins were later refitted with two bunk beds and therefore she can now accommodate 3,200 passengers. Her crew complement is approximately 990.

On April 30, 2007, the MSC Orchestra was handed over to MSC Crociere. On May 5, 2007, the transfer from Saint-Nazaire to Civitavecchia began. The christening was carried out on May 14, 2007 at 8 p.m. by the actress Sophia Loren in Civitavecchia. During the baptism, music by Ennio Morricone was played to match fireworks. The maiden voyage started on June 2, 2007 from Venice.

Her maiden voyage was in June 2007 from Venice to the Mediterranean. In the summer months 2009, 2010 and 2011, cruises to Norway and the Baltic Sea were offered from Copenhagen and Kiel. Between spring and autumn 2012 and 2013, the MSC Orchestra sails the western Mediterranean. In 2014 the ship returned to Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea. During winters, it is sailing on the east coast of South America.

Eight passengers, 4 Bulgarians and 4 Lithuanians, were arrested during 2010 after cocaine, worth an estimated £1.4m, was found on board whilst berthed at Dover, United Kingdom. Seven of the passengers pleaded guilty and the eighth was convicted at trial.
