  3. MSC Poesia
We choose (me & 6 friends) this cruise for the nice tour (Genua, Naples, Sicilië, Malta, Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Marseille, Genua). And indeed the tour was nice....for cultur, sight-seeing, shopping....we did the excursions by us with a taxi that was cheaper than the excursions on board, those were very expensive ! For example : a shuttle bus from the ship to the heart of Marseille you must pay 11,96 euro /pp, we payed 10,65 euro for 4 persons in a taxi !!!! The ship was NOT nice, the balcony cabin was small, sleep pillow of horrible quality, the food was bad and the taste of the food was so plain, if you went to the breakfast area half an hour before it closed you could find only left overs..... the personnel was not friendly , chaotic, not skilled, only at the reception were competent personnel.....although everything was very clean and the cocktails were very good , we will never seal with MSC again.....

NOT TO BE REPEATED !!
