A very enjoyable cruise
"), good variety Posibility for a small forfait to be able to drink freely, recommendable Nice cabin Interior a bit over the top but that is what a cruise ship is about Entertainment for everyone, even opera The excursions were expensive but mostly worth it except the one to Stockholm, not worth the money due to a guide who could not stop blablabla in musea and so we only saw about 1 little square for 5 minutes of Stockholm, not pleased about that I did report this to MSC but have had no feedback on it We had a very good time and plan todo another MSC cruiseVery good service Everything very well organised When you arrive, when you leave , good system with the luggage Leaving the boat for an excursion and coming back was elaborate due to safety measurements Good food in the buffets and restaurants (Tomi!!..."Read More

Review for MSC Poesia to Europe - Western Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Being first time cruisers (this being a "trial run" before doing a TA with Cunard), we had read up on reviews and info re MSC and the Poesia somewhat beforehand. The Western Mediterranean intinerary suited us well, as we had never before been to Portugal. Having 11 days in port out of a total 14 was a very exciting prospect, too. On paper, at least. More about this later. The ...

Relaxed old school Baltic cruise

Overall, we had a great vacation. My opinion is that the MSC Poesia is a “relaxed old school” type of cruise. We chose this cruise and itinerary because we had booked plane tickets to Copenhagen. We enjoyed the cruise after a week road trip in Denmark. We enjoyed the ports and itinerary, which was a 7-day Baltic cruise including Copenhagen, Warnemunde, Helsinki, Talinn, and Stockholm. We have ...

We were a group of eight from Australia on a family trip to Greenland and we can recommend all facets of this cruise ship and ports visited. We had a great boarding experience in Copenhagen, greeted by a most helpful lady that had us onboard in no time with no fuss. This ship had one of the best crews that we have encountered on any cruise, they were all friendly and efficient. The Captain was ...

I went on the Northern-cruise with my mom & all over i think it was a great experience & holiday. Nice crew, very interesting places we visited & the food was definetly okay. The only comment i have, that's regarding the wifi. It is very expensive and it works poorly. We've paid +/- 300 euro for 8 days for multiple devices, but the wifi went off most of the time. Without my knowledge my ...

We chose this cruise strictly based on the number of new countries it stopped at (I was aiming for my 100th country) and the time of year (around my birthday in May). We really enjoyed it. Of particular note was the service on the ship. We had excellent service from the following individuals: -Punia, the water at the Mojito Bar - star of the show! Helped us every morning and afternoon, chatted ...

Regrettable or treat that an MSC is giving its passengers. The ship was absolutely full. Believe that they have enlarged or cabins in a renovation, but not widening the common area. The buffet restaurants, a shopping area and a pool area did not accommodate the number of passengers. It is not possible to move through the theater to a restaurant without being used by people. We had to hold ...

If you want to be treated like a criminal, discriminated against and be at risk of burning to death on the open seas, MSC is the cruise line for you! My issues started even before the cruise. As a solo traveller, and a gay man, I emailed MSC asking if they would hold an LGBT drinks event on the cruise, as nearly every other cruise line does. The email response did not address my question, so I ...
