A Real Gem

Sail Date: February 20, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The ship was very clean, large rooms, very modern ship. Crew and service staff were helpful always. The food was very good, lots to do and see on the ship. European feel and most of the travelers were either from Europe or Canada, some South American travelers and a few Asians. 10% or Less were American Travelers.

Pros: Service, Cleanliness, Food

Cons: Shows

Recommends MSC Poesia? Yes!

The entertainment team at the pool and around the ship had lots of fun stuff to do, however the shows and dance group was not so great. About high school production quality. The dance instructor for the guests were really good and each day you could learn 2 or 3 dances.
Food and Dining
Food was always great, the buffets were mostly the same each day. The Restaurants had the best food, variety in the restaurants. Sushi and Italian food was out of this world, worth the extra money to go to the special restaurants.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Large Interior rooms. Beds were comfortable and crew offered more pillows or blankets when needed. Mini Bar and Hairdryer in room.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Dirty port, Dutch side was really bad. French side had good shopping.
Nassau, Bahamas
Shopping was good. Paradise Island was the place to visit, but you had to pay for every little thing.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Clean port with good shopping.
Don't Miss: Castaway Girl Cruise and Snorkel was the best!
