Review summary

We enjoyed our 17 day cruise on the MSC Poesia, but we did find the on board costs to be too high. Even drinking water was not free. In addition, many on board were upset about the gratuity being added at a suggested rate of (for the cost we paid) 28%, which is ridiculous. On a whole, we enjoyed the cruise and had fun, but the costs on board were depressing and meant we could not afford to fully enjoy ourselves.
