After our smooth flight to New York, my wife and I began our MSC 7 night cruise with a rather painless check in. While walking to the ship I was impressed by the new appearance of the ship. Everything was clean and freshly painted (ship looked new). Upon entering the ship I was greeted by many ships crew welcoming me (barely speaking English) wanting to escourt me to my room. My wife an I ...

I was a little concerned when I read many negative reviews. But I was very happy with the ship, food and everything else. Really good service and food. The rolls where the best I have ever had and the pasta was out of this world. The servings in the dining room where small and I really appreciated that. I agree beef dishes were lacking, I did not have the lobster but the shrimp cocktail ...

Over the past year, I have read many negative reviews re: the MSC Poesia. My wife & I disembarked on Oct 22, 2011 in NYC from a 14-day R/T NYC to Quebec, Canada. on the beautiful MSC Poesia. We have been on more than 40 cruises including Celebrity, RCCL, NCL, Costa, HAL, Carnival and Homes and we happily add MSC to the list. * I cannot identify with any of the negativity that has been ...

This was my first MSC cruise. I had taken 15 cruises before this one. Cabin: Small,inside,but ok for me. No hair conditioner or body lotion. Bed hard. Very lumpy pillows. No chair-just a stool. No choc. mint on pillow at night. Food: Hit or miss. Very inconsistent-for example I had veal scaloppini one night and it was great,another night it was terrible. Some food good(even ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

Just returned this afternoon from a 10 day New England/Canada cruise with MSC: The ship is beautiful & clean, the food was good. This was only our second cruise but the comparisons between Princess and MSC were glaring. #1] This was a European line, each time an announcement was made it was made in 5 different languages (tedious to say the least) #2] In ten days we (party of 4) did not speak ...

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 ...

The MSC Poesia is a beautiful ship with well appointed high end decor. It is fastidiously clean. Some of the crew members ( the cabin crew, the dining room waiters and some of the servers in the lounges were pleasant and put their hearts and skills into their jobs, but the majority did not. I will never cruise with them again and hope that this review will keep others from making the same ...

MSC POESIA - a great cruise

I read the many critical reviews but booked 3 consecutive cruises totaling 23 nights for a relatively low price anyway. I am writing my first cruise review after taking 10 cruises because my great experience and belief that some of the criticisms are dated. MSC must have worked on some of the points people criticized it on based on my experience. My embarkation was on 10/22 in NYC. The ports ...

WORST CRUISE EVER

I have been on several cruises and this was the worst cruise I have ever been on. There was no safety muster, MSC has no regard for passenger safety. There was sewer in the cold water on the 3rd day out and MSC never alerted the passengers of this health hazard. When we called it in, the said they were having a "technical difficulty" and not to drink the water. After talking with other ...

STAY OFF OF MSC CRUISE LINES ESPECIALLY THE POESIA This cruise lines is the Wal-Mart of cruise lines. Let me start off with the standard disclaimers, we have cruised over 37 times on most all lines. We really like Princess, Carnival, and NCL. We just took this cruise to see the fall foliage and New York City as we are southerners and this sounded like a great itinerary. The cruise left New York ...
