My husband and I come home with many wonderful memories of an enjoyable cruise. Our shore excursions were well planned and coordinated. We had a good selection of the informative, the educational and the just plain fun.
Our Cozumel guide, Miquel, was a Mayan scholar who shared many interesting facts about the Mayan culture.
Entertainment and free time was great. Balinese spa was top notch and not overpriced.
Of course, the capstone would have to be our New Year's Eve celebration on Deck 13 dancing to the Latin rhythm's of the Mambo Kings and sharing a bottle of chanpagne with four delightful young people from Italy.
Great time, overall!

Pros: Just about everything. Evening meals were delicious and well prepared. Ship's staff were so helpful and catered to our every need. As an educator, I truly enjoyed the multi-lingual and multicultural atmosphere of this Italian cruise ship. Met and made friends with a number of folks.

Cons: Montego Bay excursion to Margarita Ville at Nigril Beach. We were crammed in like sardines and the guide was quite blase. There is so much to see and do in Montego Bay and we regret wasting our time and money on this excursion.

Recommends MSC Poesia? Yes!
