MSC Poesia cruises for 2019-2020-2021


Consider MSC Poesia’s World Cruise in early 2021: from Italy via Hawaii, NZ and Australia, across Asia and the Middle East, to Italy – over 118 nights, 53 ports, 33 countries, with a fare that includes 15 shore excursions and meal time drinks. Meanwhile, MSC Poesia is based at Warnemunde (port for Berlin) until September 2019, sailing the Baltic Sea and southern Norway. (Just note, on shorter cruises Poesia does not stay overnight at St Petersburg.) In September 2019 MSC Poesia returns to the warmer Mediterranean. For two months cruises reach most parts of the Mediterranean over 11 or 12 nights. In late November 2019 MSC Poesia heads again to South America, to sail from Santos (Brazil) for a season along the coast of South America. Stay overnight in Buenos Aires with its 20-lane boulevard, and the resort beaches of Uruguay. Brush up on your Spanish and Portuguese. The Atlantic crossings either way are very inexpensive and give you the chance to see two continents. From March 2020 Poesia is back in Europe with cruises to the Baltic states and southern Norway. Remember, this is a family ship. The Line offers good affordable cruise vacations the Italian Way, filled with fun activities and having a wide appeal. Note that port calls may be short time-wise.

MSC Poesia — Ship Review Rating: 2.7 out of 5 based on 3 ratings.

Life aboard MSC Poesia
Consider MSC Poesia’s World Cruise in early 2021: from Italy via Hawaii, NZ and Australia, across Asia and the Middle East, to Italy – over 118 nights, 53 ports, 33 countries, with a fare that includes 15 shore excursions and meal time drinks. Meanwhile, MSC Poesia is based at Warnemunde (port for Berlin) until September 2019, sailing the Baltic Sea and southern Norway. (Just note, on shorter cruises Poesia does not stay overnight at St Petersburg.) In September 2019 MSC Poesia returns to the warmer Mediterranean. For two months cruises reach most parts of the Mediterranean over 11 or 12 nights. In late November 2019 MSC Poesia heads again to South America, to sail from Santos (Brazil) for a season along the coast of South America. Stay overnight in Buenos Aires with its 20-lane boulevard, and the resort beaches of Uruguay. Brush up on your Spanish and Portuguese. The Atlantic crossings either way are very inexpensive and give you the chance to see two continents. From March 2020 Poesia is back in Europe with cruises to the Baltic states and southern Norway. Remember, this is a family ship. The Line offers good affordable cruise vacations the Italian Way, filled with fun activities and having a wide appeal. Note that port calls may be short time-wise.

Launched in 2008, MSC Poesia at 92,490 GT carries 2,550 passengers. She is one of MSC Cruise Line's "Musica" family of ships. She is one of MSC Cruise Line's "Musica" family of ships. The interior décor of wood and marble, soft furnishings and colour reflects high Italian quality. English-speaking Italians have aimed this ship at English-speakers – but expect many German-speakers and others. The vessel is roomy, with plenty of lounges and bars, and has excellent alternative restaurants offering Italian and Japanese fare. Hear music day and night. Your fellow guests will be an eclectic mix from Europe and North America. MSC Cruises are family orientated, and children are very much catered for, filling the ship in school holidays. Children sail free on certain itineraries, sharing a cabin with two adults. The Mini Club (ages three to ten), organises arts and crafts activities, dancing, painting courses, treasure hunts and a mini-Olympics.

Accommodation
Four out of five cabins have an outside view, and of these four out of five have a balcony. Cabins are stylish, outfitted in handsome colour schemes. For all cabins continental breakfast is complimentary from 7.30 to 10 am, while room service snacks can be bought at other times. A basket of fruit is provided at embarkation, and replenished daily for suites. Cabins come with a mini-bar, personal safe, ample closet, shower-only tub, terrycloth robes, flat-screen TV, and excellent 24-hour room service. Suites have in addition fresh flowers, daily tray of canapes, hangers, upgraded toiletries, bathroom with tub, and king-size bed (or two singles).

Suites also have a large lounger area and walk-in closet, vanity desk with hair dryer. Some very popular staterooms are at the aft of the ship with views of the wake from balcony cabins. There are 18 suites with a private balcony. There are no single cabins, and 17 that are wheelchair-accessible.

Food and Dining
The two main dining rooms, Il Palladio and Le Fontane, are located aft with large ocean-view windows. There are two seatings for dinner, served by top-of-the-line Italian stewards. Guests in suites and deluxe grades are assigned seats in a quieter section of the restaurant. Dishes range from traditional and tasty Mediterranean fare, to the most refined international recipes. There is the "Always Available" menu, which includes spaghetti and grilled chicken, beefsteak or salmon. The alternative specialty restaurant is Kaito Sushi Bar, an authentic Japanese venue with an extensive, outstanding menu. The quality is high, and it is really worth having at least one meal here.

For a quick breakfast or lunch choose the lido Cafeteria Villa Pompeiana buffet, offering the utmost quality and variety in Italian and international cuisine, or the pool-deck fast-food grill and pizzeria. L'Obelisco is a for-fee specialty restaurant, sectioned from the Cafeteria Villa Pompeiana buffet, converted into an alternative dining area at supper with tablecloths and waiter service. Coffee/tea and pastries are available at several bars near the atrium. Each of the 16 bars is inspired by a different theme and offers an excellent wine and food selection.

Entertainment
The state-of-the-art 1240 seat two-deck Teatro Carlo Felice is the principal showlounge. The Pigalle Lounge is the main centre for social dancing, and other dance floors are spread throughout other lounges. The young and lively go to the loud and futuristic S32 Disco. View big-screen movies on the large screen above the forward pool. The Casino Royal boasts over 600 square metres of casino gaming. Play Virtual Games in the video games room. Daytime activities include a broad range of traditional competitions, quizzes and auctions, as well as Italian lessons, cooking demonstrations and exercise classes. As for shore excursions, there is a wide range of options, but the queues can be long.

Fitness programs include a small gym with classes, and courts that include a shortened tennis court, jogging area, shuffleboard, mini-golf, a golf simulator, and table tennis. The MSA Aurea Spa facility comes with all the expected health treatments - colourful, and boasting two Turkish baths, three hot tubs and two saunas, all private and with great views. The Spas are operated by Blue Ocean, and treatments include acupuncture. Children are well provided for, from three years to late teens. A "baby-parking" service is helpful when parents want to go on shore excursions.
