Arrogant Captain, Bad Food, Good Ports: MSC Poesia Cruise Review by gonetomontana
Overall Member Rating
Arrogant Captain, Bad Food, Good Ports
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Don't buy INTERNET TIME. It is only accessible in the middle of the ship in a SMOKING Lounge. I bought 300 Minutes and used only 10. Ended up making $100.00 worth of Ship Telephone Calls because of lack of E-mail.
Cabin Steward & our Dinner Waiter were great. Menus were the same every night. The Lobster was Awful, tasteless and soggy, revolting! I got tired of the same meals. Maybe under a different Captain (he was arrogant), Different Head Chef, Different Cruise Director, the ship might be a good bet.
What's the deal with the French?
Entertain Staff was great in the Lounges, 2 ladies and 5 or more men. Frederico seem to be in charge and he and the others were GREAT!.
Beautiful Ship, Great Rooms, Plenty of Elevators, and much of the spa is available at no extra charge.
We would sail on the Poesia again if the price was right. Less
