Our cruise, February 2014, sponsored by our church, was wonderful, relaxing, and most enjoyable. The luxury of sailing on a brand new, beautiful ship was most exciting. Walking through parts of the ship was a labor of love as we saw the ... Read more

We have gone on cruises with other cruise lines before and never had such an experience as we did on this MSC cruise. The hygiene level of the crew needs to be improved. At the buffet service alone I never saw a clean cloth used to ... Read more

This was an 18 day cruise with an extra 5 days in Germany. This Cruise Line had no idea of how to treat Customers. The Reception Staff was rude with whatever question you had. We lost 2 nights of sleep crossing the Atlantic because ... Read more

I am going to start with the good things we found on this ship. It was absolutely beautiful! The lounges and sitting areas and the dinning rooms were really very nice. There was always someone cleaning the brass railing. We were on the ... Read more

Since both my husband and I are seasoned sailors, we tend to prefer smaller ships; however, the price for a trip to Bermuda was right so we decided to go on this cruise. Let's start from the beginning! Processing of passengers at the ... Read more

This was our ninth cruise overall, our first time with MSC. We cruised previously with Celebrity, Princess, Royal Caribbean, NCL, Carnival, and Holland America. After reading the reviews, we embarked with low expectations. Since we ... Read more

We were so surprised that our embarkation went so smoothly. We had booked the Poesia cruise first and then we discovered a wonderful deal to cruise on the Caribbean Princess that left the week prior to the Poesia. Our big concern was how ... Read more

My recent voyage on the MSC Poesia was my very first cruise, and I researched it heavily before we sailed via reviews from prior passengers. To anybody who is familiar with reviews of this ship, you will know that many of them were quite ... Read more

Problems we had: 1. We were never told that the cruise was being renting out by a group. The group was Cruise to the Edge. Instead of leaving entertainment for those that weren't there to see that, the ship catered to them and left ... Read more

The Poesia is a beautiful, pleasant ship. Our experience was far better than many negative reviews have described. There are unusual features such as performances by real, Italian opera singers. The buffet is filled with Italian foods ... Read more

Sailing with the Moody Blues should have been the experience of a lifetime for this 'Superfan', and it certainly had its high points, but there were a lot of disappointments. Not all of the problems involved the cruise line, and that will ... Read more
