MSC Poesia Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Review SummaryThis ship has potential, however, I do not recommend it for first-time cruisers, early-birds, night-owls, nor children. I found activities and food lacking. I was disappointed that there were no "towel" animals folded on my bed. Room-service was horrible, nothing was seasoned and litttle things like salt and pepper were forgotten, nothing hot on the menu, but a cup of soup. The only sandwich was tuna on a hamburger bun.
The staff that spoke English were friendly, and those that did not speak English at least tried to say, "Hello!" or "Good Morning."
The excursions were nice, but crowded and our stay in the ports were too short.
There was nothing to do after 12:00am and then coffee was not served until 6:30am.
Gelato was good. (for purchase)
Ship is one of the prettiest I've seen with tasteful decorations, in main rooms.
Please be aware, that Europeans, do not observe our "social space", nor do they believe in waiting for their turn, on excursions, they seemed to be so afraid of being left behind, there was pushing and shoving. They will sit right on top of you, and move your "stuff."
I recommend this ship for people with patience and travel experience, only.
