One of the most enjoyable, but...........: MSC Poesia Cruise Review by cruiser 44028
Overall Member Rating
One of the most enjoyable, but...........
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Food: A very good selection available for dinner, with a different region of Italy featured nightly. This is not Olive Garden cooking. This is authentic. We ate all meals in the dining room, skipping the buffet, which got a little congested at peak meal times. Speaking of the buffet, it is NOT open all day and/or night. Their hours are basically the same as the dining rooms. If you miss the slotted times, hope that the infrequently open grill or pizza bar is open. After 10:30 p.m., there might be a token finger sandwich in a lounge.
Men,...... do a double take. ALL men's rooms in public areas are lacking something.............urinals. When you go into a restroom, you'll exit in a hurry, because all you'll see are stalls. After checking the signage again, go back in. And learn to put the seat UP.
Pool area are good, with both pools going from 5 ft. to 6 ft.(no shallow end). Good for laps, etc, but no easy entrance. jump in or use the ladder. Big disappointment was the large outdoor screen. Used only 2 nights for movies. All day , and night, used to advertise a children's fund or MSC. Was looking forward to more movies, concerts, or the Sunday NFL playoffs. Ports of call were routine. would have liked a "private island" beach day, but realize MSC is new to the area, and isn't hooked up yet. Overall, of the 5 recent cruises we've done, The Poesia was the right at the top. It had a few plusses over the others, and a few short-comings. But We would definitely go back. Less
Our first time with a balcony. Cabin space was about the same as usual, but the glass wall gave a much larger impression. Overall, the space was more than adequate. The mini-frig was a plus. The TV could have been a little larger, and the bath and closet spaces were large enough and very efficient.
Fabulous Show Troupe, ETC.
