Crucero con una ruta algo diferente, el barco está muy bien, de tamaño mediano, con el personal muy atento y amable, siempre encuentras alguien dispuesto a ayudar.

A great time on the world’s okayest cruise line by davethetemp

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

Before we left, I read lots of reviews about MSC, so we didn’t expect a typical cruise experience. The price was right, the ports were great and the food was fine. The most enjoyable part of being on the ship was the opportunity to practice my French chatting with Europeans on holiday. Adjust your expectations for MSC and you’ll have a good time.

MSC is an adventure in international travel by rsp44

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

Overall MSC does a pretty good job of managing 3000 passengers who speak many different languages. I applaud them for that. The service is variable and reflect language problems and different ideas of what service is compared to North American standards. The food is obviously mass produced and has to cater to many different tastes. Don't take this cruise if you want excellent onboard cuisine (but occasional they would surprise me with something wonderful). If you are a native English speaker (and that is your only language) be aware that finding someone who knows conversation English will be a challenge which to me really was major negative for this trip. But if you want a really international experience and want to me folks from many different countries (and not just Americans, Canadians, Aussies and New Zealanders) and or you speak some conversation Italian, French, German or Spanish, then MSC is the cruise line for you.

Cute and quaint ship. Most... by Copentravelcom

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Poesia

Cute and quaint ship. Most of the staff were friendly. Clean ship for its age. Very easy to navigate. The spa was not as aggressive as my previous MSC experience. Even when walking into the spa area, I was never asked for a service. This shocked me. A few staff members had no idea about the voyagers club status levels. I was told the only difference is the color of your hard. I tried to keep a straight face, hope I succeeded. It was obvious they were new to the cruise industry as every line has differences in status levels.

Not Great. Pick a different Cruise Line if you go by Jules1989

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Average food, undrinkable wine (unless you paid up-charge). Did not have 1 good meal in the dining room at night. Super disappointed about that. Hot tubs cold. But the boat was clean and out balcony cabin was great. Had a nice massage.

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Poesia

Lovely ship and well equipped/but slightly dated cabin. Service, sometimes excellent, sometimes you feel like your being a burden asking for a drink. Some crew lovely and some never smile. But overall experience was good, will continue to use MSC

Amazing by Desertgma40

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Everything was amazing and wonderful, feel like only draw back would be the pool and jacuzzi, nice pool for kids 5 and under, but nothing really for kids 6-10....pools really too deep so most kids spent their time in the jacuzzi

Excellent and positive surprise by chiaraciaburri

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

We have enjoyed the pleasure of visiting many enchanting places accompanied by a beautiful and comfortable ship, with professional and attentive staff, good food and entertainment of all kinds and for all ages. A bit of overcrowding in the pool but little exploited. It was our first cruise and we will certainly repeat the experience.

Take what you want from it! by taniaandsam

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Lots of people, but it didn’t seem like it unless you were embarking/disembarking, this could be smartened up by giving groups different times rather than all on/off. The ship and staff are great, prices standard cruise prices. No need to dress for the themed nights, certainly not fancy dress (we took 60/70’s fancy dress, alone!) I would go again knowing we had to manage luggage and prob book our own flights to enable us to make the most of the starting venues.

Great group vacation! we all loved it :) by whynot80

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

We were a large group with children (different ages: 5-7 year old kids and adolescents). we were so excited of that experience, we all enjoyed our time onboard (so many things to do, children never got bored, the staff was professional and trustworthy, the rooms were clean, the food was delicious). We chose this itinerary because it seemed to be interesting, with varied destinations and that is exactly what we got: archaeological sites, must dos, trendy spots, a medieval town and a completely unknow country (Albania) which amazed us so much! will definitely choose MSC again, for our next cruise vacation!

If you want your vacations... by cruise2018Eu

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Poesia

If you want your vacations to be ruined ask any crew member from MSC Poesía for anything. Do yourself a favor and have dinner at the buffet rather than in Il Palladio. Better yet, book in Norwegian rather than in MSC
