An Ok first Cruise by JohnH24

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The ship was clean and the cleaning staff were great at keeping things in shape. Restaurant staff were very good. Concierge staff(mostly european.italian) were not so pleasant. Another major issue was the length of the cruise. A 7 days cruise - Not quite. Left Ft. Lauderdale 5 hours late and got back into Ft Lauderdale 7 hours early and sat overnight at the dock on the last night. so the cruise in fact was really only 6.5 days.

Don't do it! by JoeM9

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

RUDE staff and even ruder passengers; activities for children ridiculously boring and staff delivers punishment to children (sit with hands folded in silence w/lights off for 20 minutes until talking stops); mediocre food (comporable to "Old Country Buffet") and same buffet items EVERY DAY that sit under heating lamps; very little activities; passengers packed like sardines at pool; no food available between meals; no managment to address concerns; very few English-speaking staff; staff annoyed by any questions from passengers; too short of time in Ports of Call; unexpected out-of-pocket expenses;I could go on and on...I would NEVER sail with MSC again.

Great except for the food by MaryA52

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean

The staff were continually cleaning the ship. They gave us a balcony when we paid for an inside cabin. The stateroom was really spacious. Shows were good. Our main complaint was the food. Long lines at the buffet; marginal quality. Items like canned corn, powdered eggs, fatty meats, watery oatmeal. How about tuna and artichoke pizza? Hamburgers were good tho.

Elegant, Enjoyable Cruise by K82991859

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We recently sailed on the MSC Poesia, our first time on a pleasure cruise, and were unsure of what to expect. Although there were some negative reviews posted online, we had made up our minds to stay positive and ended up having the best vacation we've had in years. .. .. .. Having limited balance and mobility, I really wondered how I would manage getting around but my fears were soon allayed. The staff were extremely courteous and discreet yet friendly and very helpful whether it was carrying my plate or assisting me on/off the beautiful ship. Our balcony room was kept immaculate by two very diligent staff and we never lacked for anything. .. .. .. The food in the cafeteria/ pizzeria was mostly the same each day; however there were enough variations and choices of condiments to appease the majority. The formal lunches and dinners, while not always gourmet, did offer a wonderful selection from which you could choose a delicious, custom meal. .. .. .. The entertainment, like the ship itself, was classy, lively, and sophisticated. I especially enjoyed the opera singers and accompanying musicians. The Italian lessons were as much fun as they were educational. .. .. .. Embarkation and debarkation was amazingly well organized, fast, and painless. We did not book through the ship but rather arranged our own tours at the ports and had a great time exploring each island at our own pace. .. .. .. I found the programs which were slipped under the door each night to be easy to follow and highly informative. Our only complaint was with the occasional rude person/family that seemed to think staff should wait hand and foot on them and/or couldn't read the guidelines outlined in the daily program. To those people I would say leave your unreal expectations and obsessive need for self gratification at home and remember you are a guest, not a member of royalty.

Great Time, by WinD

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The ship was very nice. We had balcony with 2 children and had enough space. The staff were very friendly contrary to what the other reviews stated. The food was OK, some nights good, some nights not so good, but enough of a variety that you can be satisied whenever you wanted. Also, they had a pizzeria which was pretty much opened most of the time except past 10pm. There were dedicated kids clubs w/supervision and very friendly staff. I'm not so sure why people seem to be obcessed with "Towel" animals on their beds nightly?? how does that improve your cruise quality?? Also, found the entertainment to be AWESOM!!!...A little repetitive, but very nicely done I thought. Sure, it's NO Crystal Cruises, but the cruise was quite comfortable and got us to port safely. There were no discrepancies of the port times and there were ample staff speaking english and the paper information was in english. Also a work about heir spa.....UNBELIEVABLE Spa!!!!!!. I suggest everyone get a Bali Massage and Body Peel. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

The Poesia is a beautiful ship that was kept in pristine condition by the crew. There was cleaning and polishing going on everywhere and I must say that everthing about the ship exceeded my expectations.

Fun time, much better cruise... by awhipkey

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Poesia

Fun time, much better cruise lines out there though. The pools were always closed. English was not the primary language. Not a biggie, but more of a shock I guess.

I would think twice before booking a MSC by Pat7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

We went on the 3 day cruise over the Veteran's day holiday. When we arrived at the port we were told it was a hard rock cruise. I had only booked it ten days prior and was never told of the entertainment. The remaining entertainment on the boat was geared for a much older crowd.
