Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

boarded in New York for a 13 days cruise to the caribbean.
If it had not been for the japanese restaurant (1 of 2 restaurants where you need to pay for the food) I would have left the ship allready in Florida.
The food on this ship, is so bad, that you would not believe it. It is mostly italian food, since it is an italian ship, but dont expect good pizza and pasta. The pizza was probaly the worst of them all. The food in the nice evening dinner saloon tasted like it came from the micro. The juice in the morning buffet is water, and if you decide to pay for "fresh orange juice", they take it from a can. Its not fresh. Like one if the staff onboard told me; "free food never tast good"

The food on this ship will keep me away from ANY msc-cruises in the future.
