A great cruise vacation

Sail Date: December 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

It was a nice ship; clean with nice staff. Nothing fancy compared to the newer ones with wave surfing, a big mini golf course, etc.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Kids club

Recommends MSC Poesia? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean and tidy. They did not make towel animals like the kids enjoy.
Shows were ok. Activities fun.
Food and Dining
The formal dining room was good. I really enjoyed the Italian food. The lunch and dinner buffet did not have enough variety.The pizza was excellent though!
Children's Programs
The staff was excellent at kids club. But the program itself could be better. The kids enjoyed RCCL program better. More arts and crafts, a little show on the last night for parents, etc. They boys did not like the theatre nights; they'd rather play in room and do art stuff.
Ship Quality
Clean ship, nice decor, not too big a ship. Shops were ok. Preferred variety on RCCL ship.
Service and Staff
Nice people.
