Overall Rating:

3 out of 5
Sail Date: December 01, 2010
Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The staff were continually cleaning the ship. They gave us a balcony when we paid for an inside cabin. The stateroom was really spacious. Shows were good. Our main complaint was the food. Long lines at the buffet; marginal quality. Items like canned corn, powdered eggs, fatty meats, watery oatmeal. How about tuna and artichoke pizza? Hamburgers were good tho.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Would try a few bites of everything; would get full but left feeling very unsatisfied. Just really bland. Periods of time where there was no food available. Lobster was overcooked. Ate twice in dining room in eve and orders were brought wrong both times. Better food in dining area, but takes 2hrs to eat. Ice tea and water only to drink. Coffee, tea and juice in mornings.


5 out of 5
We like to dance and they had a couple nice sized dance floors. Disco was also pretty fun. Floor was marble - so slippery. Shows were excellent and we went every night.
