A birthday celebration I will never forg by RobynS21984795

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

The ship was beautiful! Our cabin stewardess "Bali" was absolutely fantastic!! Frenchi at the Mojito bar was very charming. Most of all we loved dancing with the entertainment team!!! While in the Nassau port we were next to a Royal Carib. ship. I was amazed at how many more balcony rooms the MSC had than the RC ship!!

Do NOT waste your money on the cruise by TamiW1

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

Pools closed at 7p, Children running rampant with no adult supervision in sight, staff was rude, poor food quality unless you like hamburgers, hotdogs and french fries! Left overs from lunch served at dinner. Boring, nothing to do! Entertainment from street vendors would have been better that the screaming opera on the ship!

our first cruise by RhondaC2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Huge, clean and lovely decor. Too many photos taken all the time. The five languages that all announcements were made in got pretty "old".

never travel with MSC again by JonnaH

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

was not happy with the ship and it cost me extra money because i was told that i could get off the ship early in the morning to catch my flight but that was not the case and it was a big deal to get off the day before regarding customs, ended up paying for a hotel and rent a car because of this. translation of 5 languages is very very annoying which was the cencus through out the ship.

Nice Cruise. by BobM14

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Poesia / Destination: Bermuda

The cabin was appropriate and the food was good. You had to put a towel out at 7:00 to get a deck chair, and that didn't,t guarantee a seat. I saw several confrontations over chairs.

Yes Book this cruise by Patti1

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

This was the most romantic week we have ever had with a vacation! We requested a table for two because we are in a business that deals with people all the time and we needed alone time! The food was amazing. The presentation of the food was incredible. I will continue to recommend this cruise to others and look forward to returning. Next time I hope to take ballroom dance lessons before going. If not, I will just hop on my husbands feet again and it will be fun too

We loved this cruise! by StephanieP

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

My husband and I loved this cruise! It is a European line, so there were some things that were noticably different. While the staff was friendly, they didn't seem to go above and beyond like American cruise lines. However, overall, it was one of the best we've been on.

Great Cruise & Ship by JenniferT1

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

MSC by far the best cruise I have ever been on, and thats coming from someone who would never ever ever go on another cruise after my experiences with them. The staff speaks Italian, the food though not Italian, was great food, the desserts to die for. If your an American with American ways this is not the cruise line for you. However, if you like a little excitement and encompass a little European in you, then you may have a great time. P.S the staff does speak English, but only if your nice!

Good but a little lacking by Jennife98089222

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

We enjoy MSC because we feel they are "one star" behind Holland America in quality, decor, and activities. This trip was a little lacking for us - the Cruise Director lacked enthusiasm. Prior cruises had a director who was visible and excited to be meeting guests. One show had "Anna" seemingly tired and not at all vested in guests entertainment. She was basically an announcer and that was all. The large group of 1000+ Vegans who took over some areas of the ship left us feeling shut out and unable to enjoy the library which we had looked forward to using when at sea. Their events and activities seemed to be a priority - sometimes closing us out of entire areas (pool deck and lounges).

A Real Gem by Kb11

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

The ship was very clean, large rooms, very modern ship. Crew and service staff were helpful always. The food was very good, lots to do and see on the ship. European feel and most of the travelers were either from Europe or Canada, some South American travelers and a few Asians. 10% or Less were American Travelers.

Best cruise for dancers by JudyS7

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

This was a great cruise for people who like to dance - which we do. There were many lounges and bars with lots of music for all types of dancing. There was also a group of employees that got people dancing if they were alone. All the music was wonderful and there were many types of music. There was no break from dancing either. You could just move to a different place if they took a break. All the bands overlapped. The shows were very good. We went to all of them but they got sort of repetitive. It was sort of like the same show each night with different costumes. They were very talented though and the shows were short which I appreciated. Excursions were nice. We took two and loved them both. The shopping of the ship was minimal. I would have loved a lot more logo items to buy. They pushed a lot of expensive jewelry which I didn't care about. You can get the same thing a lot cheaper at home. I would have liked more logo things from the ship.Food was very good in the dining room. We loved eating in there every night. Our waitstaff was just wonderful and friendly. Our room was small. It had a balcony which I loved but it was the smallest balcony room of any ship I have been on. Our room staff was wonderful too. Very attentive to us and friendly. Everything was very clean and towels were refreshed constantly. The worst thng was the the long long long time it took for debarkation the last day. That was very bad planning. Had to be out of our room at 7:30 am and had to wait in a freezing loung until11:00 am to be called to leave. Then we were in a sea of people for another hour waiting to go through customs. That was just a terrible morning. From now on, I highly suggest everyone carry off their own luggage. You would have gotten right off with no trouble.
