Went on this ship with... by crystalka

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Poesia

Went on this ship with a friend. I wish that there was more food late night. We got stuck eating wrapped sandwiches. We did have a lot of fun, was difficult when we were docked and the ship was so quiet and we could hear all the partying on the ship docked behind us. I would still def go on more MSC ships as i do love them very much!

Great cruise by DebS1

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

This was our first cruise so we can't compare to other experiences, but this cruise exceeded our expectations in most areas. The service of the staff was impeccable, the ship was gorgeous, the food outstanding, and most of the entertainment was very good. There were many, many European passengers on this cruise and we mostly liked that but it was sometimes disappointing to not be able to make conversation with people in the lounges or at meals. On the other hand, when we could make conversation with people from foreign countries who also spoke English, it was very rewarding; a great multicultural experience.

Great Christmas cruise! by DawnM4

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

Although having cruised several times before, I had never heard of MSC and was a bit skeptical. No more - it was awesome! Everything was spotlessly clean, staff was very friendly, and there was a variety of activities. Food was tasty - not the best/fanciest we've ever had on a cruise, but certainly tasty and lots of choices. It was fun to be "at sea" on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Very modern ship. Lots of fresh fruits and salad. Dinner was delicious every night. Shows were very entertaining and not too long. Really enjoyed the music at the zebra bar.

p This was my first... by jbraxton

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

p This was my first voyage on MSC Poesia. The only reason that i sailed MSC Poesia was that I was attending a Seminar at Sea for travel sales training. I wouldn#39;t recommend MSC if you have a physical disability because it was difficult getting assistance and a wheelchair, if you needed assistance. Also, the balcony staterooms were small, if you had a walker to store inside the balcony stateroom. p There isn#39;t any adult area(s) if you wanted to get away from the 600 children onboard. However, if you are a parent with smaill children, this is the cruise to take the small children because children sail free up to a certain age. p I grew up on Italian pasta, and I cook the best Italian spaghetti. But, I don#39;t know what happened to the Italian cusinine on the MSC. Notwithstanding, I lost weight while I was on the cruise because I skilled a lot of meals. p The customer service on the MSC was the worst that I have ever experienced on a cruise ship. Most of the crew was from Indonesia, and they didn#39;t speak or understand English. The crew would point when you ask a question, never with a response. i was praying that I didn#39;t get sick on the cruise because the crew wouldn#39;t be any help. p There is always a silver lining to every review: p (1) MSC has a promotion going on. If you book an Inside Stateroom, you will be upgraded to a balcony cabinat no extra price. p (2) The MSC#39;sdance crews in the disco lounge made sure that you were dancing, if you didn#39;t have a dance partner. Both the female and male dance crews would come over to your table, and escort you on the dance floor. You didn#39;t have to worry about not having a dance partner. p a href=mailto:jbraxton@myreligiontours.comjbraxton@myreligiontours.com/a p

An Exceptional and a true vacation Cruis by GaneshV

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

The ship is huge, and I stayed in a balcony suite, and it's big with mens and womans closets with several racks. It also comes with a tub. The option of $25 for 30 items laundry with iron is great and unique. The room service is exceptional, and same is true with dinner and breakfast areas. Overall fantastic and commited crew for customers. 99.99% crew are from non-english speaking countries, but they speak good english. Entertainment acivities are good for adults, and this ship comes with a nice theater. Kid activities could have been better, I felt like their activity rooms are smaller for the size of the ship. It's a 7 night cruise with stops in key west, Cozumel (Mexico), Rotan Island (Honduras), and Montigo Bay ( Jamaica). My only complaint is with the stay in Jamaica. The ship scheduled to leave around 2:30PM leaving our day short. Other than these small issues I give 5/5 rating for this cruise.

OK if you get the KIDS SAIL FREE deal. by AliciaP3

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

This was a family cruise with many generations and families. If it were not for the Kids Sail Free deal would probably not have gone. The port for Jamaica is a LONG drive to excursions. No pictures were taken upon disembarking at each port of call. Food was good quality, dining service was slow (typical European), coffee was good! Limited communication with crew due to poor English speaking.

crash course needed in customer service by AroonJ

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

here's a summary: 1 - good shows in the evening 2 - average entertainment 3 - customer service is non-existent 4 - dining is terrible 5 - stateroom is standard 6 - very good cameramen and women. 7 - maitre'de should be in charge of TSA (perhaps he was head waiter of Guantano Bay) 8 - dining room wait staff is confused 9 - we have experienced 5 different cruise companies, and MSC has to rank last by a large margin.

Our 61st Cruise and 1st with MSC Poesia by Sg111

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

After cruising 60 times with other cruise lines we were a little bit leery with MSC as reviews were not very positive. Contrary we agree that it was a wonderful ship with a lot of positives in its favor provided they correct some minor things that fall short of receiving a "The Best' status. Below are some of our comments. Note: we had the opportunity of chatting with the Cruise Director Anne and the Assistant Cruise Director Tyler and went over most of the areas that we suggest addressing. They were most gracious and attentive to our comments, we hope they implement them.

Excellent Adventure and Exquisite Ship! by AnnaS2

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

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!

It was a nice ship; clean with nice staff. Nothing fancy compared to the newer ones with wave surfing, a big mini golf course, etc.

Never again!!! by MelodyM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The staff were rude, the ship a collection of hogepoge pieces from other ships and smelling of mold. I bought a sode package and they ran out of diet soda half way through trip and refused to substitute even bottled water or give a refund. We were told stateroom would have 2 beds - WRONG! We were told stateroom would have unobstructed view - WRONG!!!! A view of the lifeboat was not why I booked an oceanview!

My first time in MSC... by MardelCar

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

My first time in MSC was in general a nice experience. An advice .. whenever you go to a cruise thinks that it is your first time, every ship and every line of cruises have its own delight. Do not lose your time in doing comparisons because then something is going to disillusion you. On my trip they have SHIPROCKED event but this don't disturbed . I looking for my next cruise on MSC......Recomended 100%
