We chose this cruise because of it's itinerary and because it linked with another MSC cruise, The Orchestra, from Venice. We were two couples with no children. The Poesia is a well designed ship with modern interiors overall. The cabin ... Read more

Chose this cruise because other family members had made that choice. The ports of call were great choices and we decided to join them. The best thing about this ship and cruise line is the rooms and the ship itself. The worst thing is the ... Read more

The problem here is that by its nature, moving 4,000+ people of different nationalities, ages, languages and classes around the med is a logistical nightmare and for MSC to get it even 80% right would be a miracle. So starting with the ... Read more
