Sail Date: November 2009
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Excitely, we embarked on the MSC Possea November 30. We had booked a back to back cruise..Ah! 20 days of relaxation and good eating.Embarkcation went very soomthly. It was one of the easiest ever. Our cabin was very nice, the cabin boys were very accomadating,friendly and very helpful. We went up to the 13th floor for a nice lunch. The food seem ok, not spectacular but doable.The atmosphere was vey noisy and the people seem a little anxious to get their food,even pushing others to get ahead of them.I thought" Oh, the poor souls have be traveling a long time and were just tired." What I learned later is that they were rude people whose ignorance were only surpassed by their stupidity and lack of good manners.Some were Americans, others were European.

After a nap and unpacking,we found our upgraded cabin didnot have enough room to store enough clothes for a seven day cruise. It was soon dinner time. The room was very crowded and quite noisy. Service was very More inefficient,disorganized and slow. Many of us did not get what we ordered. The food was very unsatisfactory. Pastas being undercooked. Sauces with no flavor. Meats cooked to a crisp and uncutable.Fish was undercooked and slimey. I must say the bread basket was very nice, except that, a the crew was preparing for the second seating, they took the bread baskets (yes the same ones we had been using )and put it on the table for the next seating.
