OUTSTANDING CRUISE, WOULD DEFINITELY GO AGAIN!!!
"I have been on many cruises and found MSC Poesia a great cruise. I read all the bad reviews and book anyway because they were going to the destinations I wanted to visit. I'm glad I booked, I was happily surprised..."Read More

Review for MSC Poesia to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and because we wanted a European experience on our ship. We flew into Paris and spent 4 nights there, then flew to Rome and took the train to Civitavecchia where we spent the night before the cruise. I definitely was a bit nervous of choosing MSC because some of the reviews are well ... less than glowing. I don't know what those folks experienced or ...

I chose this particular cruise because of the ports of call, and no ‘at sea’ days. Booked well over a year in advance, I started reading reviews on many different sites and was becoming a little concerned but thankfully fretted over nothing (surely couldn’t have been worse than my P&’n’O experience earlier this year. Onboard announcements were in a number of languages, English being first, and ...

We chose MSC as it tends to be cheaper than other cruise lines. We have used another 2 company's previously and MSC were on a par with them. The food was excellent and staff friendly and helpful. Would defiantly recommend. We went on a couple of excursions organised by the ship which were excellent and good value for money. The bars and restaurants were all beautifully decorated. This ship was ...

I'm pleased that we didn't read some of the previous reviews because we may not have booked this and then we would have missed out on an amazing time. The ship was brilliant - we were on the all-inclusive drinks package (part of the deal we picked up via a newspaper) and this entitled us to a very wide range of unlimited drinks , including cocktails and most spirits/liquers. Also a wide range ...

After reading bad reviews I was hesitant to take this cruise but my mother and I had a great time without any issues with the ship, staff or excursions. We chose this cruise because of all the ports and it was a good time for us. My mom and I booked our cruise without any problems and we had the drinks package as well as a few excursions making a nice mix. Embarkation went well it was actually ...

We booked this years cruise embarkation city for many reasons. 1 we didn't want to loose 4 days at sea leaving from Southampton like we did the previous cruise 2 We wanted to get to the warm weather as soon as possible (albeit, there was a heat wave in the UK) 3 The cruise dates suited us. Overall, the embarkation went well, yes it was hot waiting in the queue but we were there for the ...

Chose this as it matched our dates and general areas wanted to visit. Got great deal with flights, balcony, drinks, hotel on last day, transfers etc all within budget. The ship was glitzy and well maintained, clean and neat. Staff were all fantastic, helpful, friendly, fun and professional. Food was excellent, including vegetarian, all clearly labelled, well cooked and certainly plentiful. Special ...

We´ve chosen this cruise to sail for first time. We were looking for a well rated cruise and not very expensive, and we found this cruise. The embarkation and the disembarkation were very smooth. The ship was really big compared with other ships! The excursions were very good, we bought some tickets for the shuttle bus to Dubrovnik. The cabin was very comfortable and modern. The entertainment was ...

It is the best option for traveling with children. Children travel for free. There are fun activities for them: The swimming pool, board games, the theater ... The cities where we disembarked were fantastic, especially Venice, Olympia, Izmir, Istanbul and Dubrovnik. The boat is very big and beautiful. It has fifteen floors, two swimming pools and several dining rooms.The crew was very friendly and ...
