Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 16, 2011
Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

SHip was very large, impressive, and clean. But there were limited swimming areas for adults (WAY too many kids),

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
food was various, but the buffet hours were limiting, and overcrowded. There were no other cafes, or smaller buffet areas to circumvent the congestion.

Redundant. Previous cruises offered comedians and adult entertainment but this cruise was extremely limited on creativity and quality of entertainment. The acrobats were very good but 2 nights of that is enough....5 is too much.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
inability to communicate; rude and unhelpful generally.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
stateroom was very nice, spacious (we had a balcony) but the service and cleaning was poor.

Pros: the elegance and cleanliness of the ship

Cons: Service; organization (lack thereof); Crew members' attitude; too many kids! Entertainment

Recommends MSC Poesia? No.
