MSC Poesia

MSC Poesia (meaning poetry in Italian) is one of four sister-ships in MSC Cruises’ Musica class of modern cruise liners. In keeping with her name each spacious deck is named after a famous Italian poet. The tastefully exuberant décor, with the waterfall in the atrium and twinkling lights on the ceiling of the theatre, makes this ship feel elegant but certainly not boring.

The wide variety of facilities and amenities are sure to make you feel at home. You’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars and lounges, a theatre, a mini-golf course and an array of plush staterooms – 80 per cent of which have private balconies.

  • Launched: 01 Apr 2008

Kaito Sushi Bar

Dining

MSC Poesia has two main restaurants, Il Palladio and Le Fontane, which serve Italian, American and vegetarian dishes in a formal setting. For more relaxed dining, you’re sure to enjoy Villa Pompeiana, a buffet-style restaurant where you can choose from a variety of Italian and international cuisine.

For a small cover charge, guests may choose to dine Kaito Sushi Bar. All the food there is lovingly prepared by experienced master Sushi chefs. Boasting an extensive menu, you can choose from sushi, sashimi, tempura and more.

If you’re a wine lover, the wine bar is where you’ll find a variety of wine, along with cheeses and ham. For a casual bite to eat, there’s fast food eateries on-board too. Remember to leave room for the lavish midnight buffet! Room service is available at all times of day, but has some small charges depending on what you order. When it comes to drinks, make sure you visit The Zebra Bar and Mojito Bar, for the perfect evening.

Oceanview Suite

Accommodation

There are plenty of categories of cabin to choose from on-board MSC Poesia. Whether it’s interior, ocean view, balcony cabin or a spacious Aurea Suite, there really is something to suit every guest. Offering an array of facilities, you can expect spacious wardrobes, hair-dryer, bathroom amenities, comfortable beds and luxury linens. All cabins have double beds which can be converted to two singles. For families, third and fourth beds pull down from the ceilings in most staterooms and connecting cabins are also available.

Coral Bay Pool

Leisure

MSC Poesia features three swimming pools and four whirlpools. You’ll also find lots of sports activities for the whole family to enjoy including a mini golf course, basketball, tennis, football, volleyball, table tennis and shuffleboard. There’s a jogging track and gym, or if you prefer a more relaxing break, you’ll love the facilities of the spa and solarium.

Carlo Fenice Theater

Entertainment

There’s much to keep you entertained on board MSC Poesia. The two-storey Teatro Carlo Felice Theatre has two performances each evening featuring singers, jugglers, shadow puppeteers, acrobats and the like. You can also enjoy cabaret and karaoke in the show lounges or stay up late in the S32 nightclub. If you’re feeling lucky, try your luck in the casino or the card room.

Children will be entertained night and day in the age-specific kids’ clubs which cater for ages 3-17 and are, of course, free of charge. There is also a chance to catch your favourite blockbuster films with the giant poolside cinema screen!

MSC Poesia Reviews

Michelle Hewitt

star rating

Being an Italian Cruise Line the feel of this ship was a bit different to others I have sailed on and they cater for the varied nationalities by announcements in about 5 languages. Because of the varied nationalities the entertainment is based more on a Circe Du Soleil feel with acrobats, magicians, jugglers and the usual singers and dancers. The acrobats are jaw stopping and you scratch your head with the magicians wondering how do they do that?

Food was really good and if you liked something you could ask for more and we were on a table with other English speaking guests (two were from Holland but spoke English better than some people from the UK). We also paid the extra £20 per person to upgrade to all inclusive so that we didn’t have a scary bill at the end of the trip.

The cabins were a reasonable size with plenty of room to hang my dresses up although there were only two formal nights on board so I felt I’d packed too much in the end.

We went from Venice, and visited some of the Greek Islands and Dubrovnik in Croatia which was a lovely City where you should walk round the walls.

We had a lovely time and we will try another MSC ship in the future.

I would really recommend this cruise, it is perfect for all ages. I travelled as a couple and was a little bit worried about travelling on a ship that has families, but I loved it. The ship felt very personal and I met some great people on-board.

The sushi restaurant was amazing and there was so much to do. The ship was very big with 16 decks but I was never bored.

The large theatre had great shows every night of the cruise.

I would definately go again.

This is the first time I have cruised with MSC and was pleasantly surprised. Check in and boarded was a little slow, but when I got on the ship everything was very well run

I was taken to my cabin which was very clean and spacious for one person, although the shower area was a bit tight !

The food in the restaurant was excellent with plenty of choice and the waiter was very professional and helpful. The buffet was also excellent with a huge amount of choice

Drinks were a little expensive and I think I will go for the all-inclusive option next time!

Overall a brilliant cruise and I will return!
