3 Night Tropical Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 11, 2010
Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

We went on the 3 day cruise over the Veteran's day holiday. When we arrived at the port we were told it was a hard rock cruise. I had only booked it ten days prior and was never told of the entertainment. The remaining entertainment on the boat was geared for a much older crowd.

Food and Dining

Dining room was very nice - wait staff were professional but I have been on other cruises where they were much more attentive but food was so so.

Entertainment was very poor in my opinion. We felt it was geared to an over 65 crowd. We are in our early 50's and felt like we were in between the entertainment options. Either it was hard rock for the younger generation or OPERA.

It was the highlight of the trip. We took a tour of the Atlantis and a city tour. Enjoyed both.

Pros: Poesia was beautiful and cabin was very nice

Cons: Entertainment and food

Recommends MSC Poesia? No.
