Verified Review
7 Night Eastern Caribbean Enchantment (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 26, 2010
Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Controlled payments to dinner staff and cabin stewards when poor service is provided was inappropriate. Embarkation was a huge conflict with personnel waiting and the 1 person in charge (much yelling by the MSC person). Poor food service. Poor menu. We have been on 30 cruises, and won't go on this line again.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
1 menu the whole cruise. No selections. We ate at the buffett more than at the dining room. At least there were selections.

Evening shows were good.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Kids <12 had well structured times to meet, but was very limited on when the kids could go to the club unlike Disney Cruise Lines. Teenagers, no structure and much rude behavior. We didn't let our son go to the teenage meetings, he doesn't need to learn rude adult behavior.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Many of the staff were rude when you talked with them.

Cabin / Stateroom

staterooms were average.
5 out of 5
Very nice port, one of the reasons we selected the trip.
Don't Miss: Shopping on the Drake Passage.

We didn't go to Nassau, we went to Freeport. I would have not booked this cruise if I knew it was going to Freeport. It was falsely advertised.
5 out of 5
Very nice port, also a reason we went on the cruise. We were in port too short, this seemed like a shorting for the passengers.

Pros: Evening Entertainment

Cons: Food and Ports

Recommends MSC Poesia? No.
