MSC Poesia, stay away

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Good things: Cabin size is adequate, Nice decor, pizza is great, child does not pay (not a kids ship).
Bad things:
Ship is noisy in many areas and it rocks a lot, if you have motion sickness, stay away.
I did not know you could be hungry on a cruise ship. Dining area have short opening time. The buffet area that should be open all the time is closing at 21:30. Meal can be really good one day and really bad the day after. The Entertainers are childish, like wearing a dress coat with boxer, have a rubber chicken around his neck, could make a 4 years old kid laugh, no more. Evening shows are good the first and second night, after that it's only the same dancers, ''acrobats'' but with different themes. Service on the ship is not impressive, it is faster to go to the bar to get a drink than waiting for a waiter. Almost forgot, don't buy their wine, soft drink or cocktail packages because they give you coupons and even if they are numbered, if you loose them your done!
For More a first cruise, it could be OK but read reviews and look for something else. Less
