Wonderful except that British Airways failed to deliver our luggage and we had to buy a complete outfit to be in the cruise. by babub

We enjoyed the trip. The staff were very informative and helpful The excursion guides except at Tallin were very informative. If we had our luggage during the trip we would have enjoyed it more

MSC is an adventure in international travel by rsp44

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

Overall MSC does a pretty good job of managing 3000 passengers who speak many different languages. I applaud them for that. The service is variable and reflect language problems and different ideas of what service is compared to North American standards. The food is obviously mass produced and has to cater to many different tastes. Don't take this cruise if you want excellent onboard cuisine (but occasional they would surprise me with something wonderful). If you are a native English speaker (and that is your only language) be aware that finding someone who knows conversation English will be a challenge which to me really was major negative for this trip. But if you want a really international experience and want to me folks from many different countries (and not just Americans, Canadians, Aussies and New Zealanders) and or you speak some conversation Italian, French, German or Spanish, then MSC is the cruise line for you.

Study the layout and find out how to get from one place to another - our cabin was in the back and to get to the middle of the ship, you couldn't walk thru the dining rooms.

TRY TO BOOK A CABIN IN THE CENTER OF THE SHIP. IT IS A VERY LONG SHIP. WE DID NOT GO TO THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANT. THERE WAS VERY GOOD FOOD IN THE DINING ROOM. THE SPECIALTY RESTAURANT IS A PART OF THE BUFFET DURING THE DAY. IT COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE EXCLUSIVE. THERE ARE 2 STANDARD DINING ROOMS, SAME FOOD, BUT THE LA FONTAINE SEEMED CLASSIER.
