Food, cleanliness, service all really good, always found something nice to eat, staff amazing. Aurea package good with massage, priority embarkation,dressing gown and slippers, access to jacuzzi etc, my-time dining and (adults only)top sail 16. Entertainment good especially Tai Chi classes and Spanish mother & son duo opera. Only slight complaint, top sail 16 needs to be monitored to ...

Critique of MSC POESIA 1/16/2010 Sailing traveler1019 Having viewed the virtual tour of the MSC POESIA prior to our sailing, my wife and I anticipated an enjoyable journey to the western Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale. In truth, the ship itself was magnificently appointed. The theater was high tech in all respects and we were really impressed. However, as it has been said, "Beauty is ...

On April 4, 2009, me and my family, a total of 14 people, boarded the MSC Orchestra not knowing what we were going to experience since it was our first time booking with MSC. We head heard from other sources that it was a newer ship and was supposed to be nice-looking as well. Well those 2 comments were correct, but wait until you here our story. EMBARKATION DAY: We found getting to the ship ...

first...embarkation was a breeze it took less than 15 minutes and we were on board, no special lines, no special treatment, everything just WORKED. We started to board at 3:00 and was on board by 3:15. The ship is Beautiful...you could take any public room and put it anywhere and it would fit in in any city...These public rooms were bright (natural light) and cheery...there was Music everywhere ...

My wife, Mom and Sis-in-Law and I were on the 4/4/09 sailing of the MSC Orchestra. Connecting cabins 12105/12107. This was wife and my 10th cruise to include RCCL, HAL, CCL, NCL and Regent Rainbow [early 90s]. We have not had a bad cruise yet and that includes this one on the Orchestra. A beautiful ship with the best show theater we've seen on 10 ships, and with awesome shows. In my opinion ...

We had a fabulous time!This line is really for people who enjoy an Italian style vacation or would like to experience it. We paid $500 per person  for inside cabins and were upgraded to balconies on the 11th floor for free.  We loved every minute of this vacation.  It was worth every penny and felt very sophisticated.   My husband and I have traveled throughout Europe and really enjoy getting to ...

Pre-Cruise: Flew into FLL with free shuttle to Comfort Inn Airport Cruise Port. Also had free shuttle to port at 12:45. Asked about late check-out, but told we had to be out on time because it was a busy weekend for them. Shuttle left on time and we were at the port by 1:00. Embarkation was very quick and painless, perhaps 30 minutes from getting off the shuttle to dropping off our carry-on bags ...

We arrived in Fort Lauderdale the day prior to the cruise.Stayed at the Hampton Inn - Plantation.The hotel was great, very clean, good breakfast in the mornings and offers shuttle service to and from both the airport and cruise terminals.We were part of a fairly large group of Cruise Critic members on this sailing, and the roll call on the forum board was amazing.  It gave everyone a chance to get ...

This was one of the worst cruises I have ever been on!!! For a company that claims on their website "On the ships of MSC you will discover a perfect blend of European charm and modern Italian elegance....When you vacation with MSC Cruises, you'll travel in unparalleled style with the world's fastest growing cruise line" this ship sure did not meet up to my expectations of this charm and style! The ...

We had such a wonderful cruise, I just had to share it with Cruise Critic. We joined the roll call on this cruise and found that it really added to the enjoyment of the cruise. We felt at home because we had been corresponding with the other members of the roll call for over 3 months. The thread was started almost a year ago and I am sure our group must have broken some kind of record for ...
