We booked a Fall Foliage cruise with another couple on the MSC Poesia embarking on October 8, 2011. The embarkation was smooth and efficient and the lunch was just what we needed.
We found it refreshing to be among so many different nationalities on board as opposed to Caribbean cruises with whiny parents and their disruptive children.
Although repetitious, announcements in five different languages was neat to hear and sometimes hilarious to decipher.
Inside cabin was for disabled and was large and had ample room for my wife's clotining as long as I stored my stuff in my suitcases under the bed. Nicely appointed but relatively dark. Could use more light. Dark and great for sleeping since you can't tell what time it is. Great bathroom for disabled with chair in shower and easy to use faucets.
Room was next to exit for crew and could hear hard heels on brief section of tile by access. Noise of equipment moving overhear could me heard but usually was short lived. We just ignored it.
