Wonderful Poesia really is a Poem
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The ports were good, we only went on one trip organised by MSC (the rest we'd pre booked ourselves). Grand Cayman was our fav. Captain Marvins tour (Cayman in a Nutshell) a trip of a lifetime (and I've been all round NZ and Australia). The senior crew are mainly Italians, and some of their English not so good, but that really wasn't an issue. I suppose our ONLY complaint about the whole cruise was the children's club. They wouldn't even let our little boy play on the equipment, as he was under 3, even with US to supervise. We don't go on holiday to park our children with child care (it's holiday family time) but it would have been nice to have had the ability to use the equipment. The shows are simple, but I suppose they need to be for all the different nationalities, and we enjoyed the music in the bars - our fav being the classical trio who payed every night in the main lobby area in the middle of the ship. Our little boy even enjoyed that. To all those people who moan about the Poesia, what are you expecting? To us, it's a beautiful ship, friendly people, clean as a whistle and we'll be sailing MSC again (...and you don;t pay for your children!!) Less
Cabin review: 8
Nice cabin. Small balcony. Nice to be in the middle of the ship. Camber maid has extra hangers if you need. Category 8 cabin fairly high up when you are in port so good views. Not noisy at all.
