We are currently on this terrible cruise Over 500 people on board have signed a petition protesting the way MSC are treating us. 1. So many sea days Change of itinerary increasing itinerary to an extra 20 sea days, less port times, and no compensation for these changes or refunds of tax and port fees. As compared to other cruise companies such as Cunard, princess, costa etc who have ...

Worst Cruise Ever

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Poesia

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I have cruised on various cruise lines so far including NCL, Celebrity, Carnival etc. This has been the worst from all aspects, except the staff. The food had literally no Vegetarian options. The shows were substandard. No coffee creamer’s. The quality of soap below par. Not even warm milk for coffee the first 2 days. I would not recommend this cruise line by any means. Please save your money and ...

The Potential to Be Better is There but MSC Must Not care???

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Poesia

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We sailed on MSC Seaside in Feb of 2020 and it was a great experience so we were looking forward to our Cruise booked on Poesia. We chose this one as it had a very nice itinerary. The ship was beautiful and well taken care of. The potential is really there but it seems as if MSC does not care. I am sure I am not the first person to list the shortcomings on their survey as they were apparent ...

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Poesia

This was our first time on MSC cruise we were very disappointed.

When we stopped by customer reception desk asked about no facial tissue in the room they looked at me like what are you asking…. After explaining when I needed they ...

Baltic Sea

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Poesia

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Failure to complete the planned route and failure to provide compensation for this. The ship did not dock in Bisby due to "weather conditions" even though other cruise lines' ships did dock. Instead of changing the route or giving compensation to the passengers, the company just wasted another day on the open sea. This route is really not worth it and a waste of time. The food in the restaurant ...

20 day Northern Cruise-wonderful scenery

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on MSC Poesia

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Our 20 day cruise went as high as illulisat Greenland with scenery or amount of Icebergs I was not expecting. The ship is old yes but extremely clean and well presented. We had cabin which was your usual balcony cabin layout. The surprise was having a kettle in the cabins to make your tea or coffee anytime. No USB ports in the cabin which is almost unforgiving these days. Food was extensive in ...

Review for a Arctic Cruise on MSC Poesia

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

1. Before my cruise on MSC Poesia, a looked-for Wi-Fi price list but didn't find it. So, i photographed it on the ship for future passengers. You can find it at the end of my review. 2. In general the cruise was very pleasant and interesting because the itinerary that included Greenland. The functioning of the ship was wonderful, without any problems. The food was very good in the buffet Lido ...

Worst Cruise Ever on MSC to Greenland and Iceland

Review for a Arctic Cruise on MSC Poesia

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This was our first cruise/holiday in the post covid world. The experience with MSC was so bad and disappointing in every way that it has put us off ever doing another cruise with any cruise line. It seem that MSC’s bean counters have worked out how to strip as much expense out of their cruises - from the ports, food, entertainment and facilities offered on board. I have given the following ...

Just OK

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on MSC Poesia

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

While the ship offered a wonderful itinerary overall the cruise itself was just ok. 14 days out of Barcelona hitting 10 counties was a wonderful draw for us. Boarding was seamless and quick and we basically were able to walk right on and directly to our room. Food was just ok, nothing to rave about but you didn't go hungry. Entertainment was below average, I have seen better at a high school ...

Awesome itinerary for a quite reasonable price

Review for a World Cruise Cruise on MSC Poesia

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We did a 119 night World Cruise, don't know why the menu here in CC says its only 50 nights. MSC delivers a lot of bang for your buck, though not everything was perfect. But the itinerary and the dining were awesome, although strangely the famous Kaito-sushi restaurant was closed during the whole trip. The staff was excellent, I wish shore hotels would have staff as nice and attentive. The ...
