Ship Facts: MSC Poesia Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Poesia Deck Plans
Pleasant Surprise
Our cruise on the MSC Poesia turned out to be one of our best ever. We were concerned about the many negative reviews we had seen prior to sailing, but were pleasantly surprised!

THE FOOD: It's about what you'd expect on any cruise. More Italian and Mediterranean dishes(which was a plus for us).Some items are never seen on other lines. Buffet food could have been warmer. Cruise food is cruise food-and at over 1000 meals per hour,it's very good. MSC was BETTER than I expected on FOOD. Pasta dishes tremendous. Don't miss trying a dining room lunch.

STAFF: They were great! Always seemed happy, no long faces observed. Eager to help and please. No language problems.

ROOM: Maybe a bit smaller than balconies that I am used to, but OK. They need to add some shelving over the TV area for books and things. A few clothes hooks on the wall too. The view in AFT cabin is spectacular.

THE SHIP: Cleanest ship I have ever been on. Space on deck was tight, but never had trouble getting a space. Daily paper could use more local info on Ports (taxi and beach recommendations for example, like Princess does)

Entertainment- Again, about what you'd expect. Very good. Magician great.

Summary: We really enjoyed the European feel to this cruise. The multiple language messages were infrequent, and not bothersome. We will do MSC again-the next time without the concern about negative reviews. We had a great trip.
