After spending three full days on MSC Poesia, I’ve seen shows, found out-of-the-way nooks and crannies and spent far more than I should have on discount purses. But after all of that, I still don’t know how to say the ship’s name.
So far, I’ve heard “poh-ee-SEE-yah,” “poh-EH-see-yah,” “poh-eh-SEE-yah,” “poh-EE-zsa,” and tons of others, all with variations on long and short vowels and accented syllables. I suppose that, with so many nationalities onboard, it’s understandable, but I wanted a definitive answer. Naturally, I deferred to the Italian pronunciation — you know, with it being an Italian ship and all.
So, which is correct?
E) None of the above.
Be sure to submit your guesses in the comments below, and we’ll post the answer shortly.
