Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Beautiful, clean ship with rude staff and terrible food. Very disorganized.

Pros: Beautiful ship and very clean

Cons: Food and staff

Recommends MSC Poesia? No.

Food and Dining
Food was terrible, worse than fast food. Very little variation to the menu in the Dining Room. Fish overcooked and tasteless. Steaks grizzly and fatty. Everyone very disapoiinted. Cafeteria was even worse.
Service and Staff
Wait staff was friendly and courteous, however other Italian staff was actually rude.
Ship Quality
Rooms clean, beautiful ship, however, public restrooms smelly.
Cabin / Stateroom
Decent statement but extremely small bathroom and shower.
One great singer every night, dancers not professional at all. shows barely lasted 25 minutes.
Quebec City, Quebec
Short tour of Old Quebec City and then to Montmorency Falls. Went back after for a walk around the Old City and Mount Royal. Beautiful City.
Sydney, Nova Scotia
Not much to see, very old fishing village.
Newport, Rhode Island
Did our own walking tour. Great city, walked all the way down Thames Avenue to shopping and Harbor Market. Get time.
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Beautiful island. Went all the way from Charlottetown to the North Shore to a wonderful lunch at the PEI Preserve Company. Wonderful lobster lunch and gift shop.
