OK Cruise - Oct 2 2010 - Canada/New Eng.
MSC Poesia Cruise Review to Canada, New England, New York
Review SummaryMSC provided a nice cruise, and delivered exactly what they advertised.
This is my first cruise on board a larger ship. We normally sail on smaller ships (1400 -1600 guests) so we expected a little more personal service, especially when your booked in their best (suite) stateroom. It didn't happen!
Holland America keep those smaller ships in service - - - were coming back!
Food and Dining
The show every evening in the theater was another disappointment. The stage was very small, and lacked any appearance of being a production set. They projected images on a screen, and had a catwalk with stairs on both sides, as the only prop for every show for 12 nights of the 14. The dancers were very good considering they didn't have much of a stage setting to work with. The entertainers on the other hand left a lot to be desired. In my opinion there was not enough variety. Every night you had a dance routine and then it was followed by a circus act or a opera singer. No other type of entertainment was available. This type of entertainment got real old-real quick.
