A fine time
MSC Poesia Cruise Review to Europe - Western Mediterranean
Ship: MSC Poesia
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryOur cabin on the tenth deck was quiet and had a lovely view. Friends living toward the stern complained of engine noise/vibration, so make sure you are at least mid-ships or forward. The cleaning staff are almost too efficient; the food was fine--though not the greatest--the amenities (gym, pools) are fine. We would have liked a statement from the navigation staff about daily position, depth, speed, etc, beyond what is cursorily provided by the on-board TV. We had to avoid certain places--one whole side of the pool deck, anywhere near the casino--because of cigarette smoke. It was clear people were smoking in their cabins, against the rules, because of the stench in some quarters.
