New Improvements on MSC Poesia - Review of April 6, 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Ship was beautiful and sparkling clean, looks brand new
Decor is lovely, and even the hallways are light and attractive. This was my 3rd time on Poesia and she is as beautiful as ever and now some new additions and new things make her better than ever, especially for Americans
embarkation was the easiest ever, walk right on, we were there very early and away we go
Bought the prepaid wine vouchers (with a group) and bought the 10 drink coupons get 12..sweet deal
New stuff : they have a "winemakers" blending deal, blend your own wine to your taste, they have a lady wine expert on board (held in the wine bar, look in the paper)
They redid their graphics/design for the daily papers, looks better than the old "xeroxed" look they had before. A bit easier to read IMHO
Bought a voucher (look for when the cruise consultant is at her post by the internet cafe)....voucher was $10 - gets you $50 spending $$ on your next cruise ...pretty nice
I didn't go to the Baseball More
Greats...they were not intrusive and did not affect me, they were seated by our group at 2nd seating ...a couple of the guys in my group really enjoyed them...2 of them teamed up with 2 other guys and won the trivia contest : got baseball hats autographed by all the players. Nice little extra
The main bar in the Zebra has the "Alchemy" drinks...(like Carnival LOL)...great bartenders...look for the Alchemy menu : Dr Love was our fav....chocolate syrup, Baileys, Kahlua, Rum and Amerreto and cream....oh my....they have "Forty is the New Twenty">>> really all the "alchemy" drinks that Carnival charges so much for....and yes your "coupons" work for the alchemy drinks too...wow...only $7.25 per drink. MSC has to be the best for this
Shows were fabulous....the tenor from last year, Guisseppe, and Mima Bari the "diva" singer....plus a new Romanian sorprano (good but very very poor diction)....Mima seems to have improved her English
