An ok cruise

Sail Date: January 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was new, beautifully appointed, lots of marble, Cabins were nice. The ship was very clean. Waiters were very good and friendly.

Food was boring, not flavourful and not nicely presented in the dining room. The cafeteria food had the same meals every day. We took a back-to-back and had the identical food and shows the second week. We also had to change cabins the second week.

Pros: Beautiful ship

Cons: Food

Recommends MSC Poesia? No.

Shows were ok. A bit short-about 30-40 minutes each show. On our 2nd week the shows were exactly the same so we did not attend. We had late seating dinner and had to see the shows at 7pm. We would have preferred to see the shows after dinner.
Lack of varied activities around the pool and in the nightclubs. Most activities were passenger performances.
Service and Staff
Reception and Accounting staff were not very friendly or helpful. Accounting desk had short working hours and were rude on one occasion. Waiters were good and friendly.
Food and Dining
Boring, tasteless, repetitive, not nicely presented. Two specialty options were too expensive. Desserts were awful.
Ship Quality
Very clean.
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable room. Would prefer a shower door instead of a flapping shower curtain.
