I felt that everything on this cruise was average, including the food. The cruise gave us the opportunity to relax and to see several parts of the Baltic area however, everything was average. I was surprised that the food in our dining room was not better, just average.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Again, I felt the food was average. From our experience we felt the best place to eat was in the Japanese Sushi restaurant.


3 out of 5
We enjoyed our tour of Tallinn but were severely disappointed in the St. Petersburg tour. It had many glitches especially of logistics, that could have easily been corrected or planned for and then avoided.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our cabin steward was above average, but our dinner waiter, Budi, was average.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I felt it was huge, but average.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5

Pros: We had a good rest.

Cons: Everything, including a drink of water for dinner, was "extra".

Recommends MSC Poesia? Yes!
