MSC Poesia provides an international cruise experience with an Italian flair. If you're looking for an all-American cruise, you're not going to find it here. MSC Poesia is geared to an international cruise market, so enjoy the muster drill in five languages and smaller portions of food in the dining room. MSC Poesia is a beautiful ship with a stunning three-story atrium. The extensive use of glass, marble and brass is attractive, and a neutral color palette in most public areas is easy on the eyes.
The staterooms are nicely detailed, with all the expected amenities such as TV, in-room safe and sitting area with desk. The interior, oceanview and standard balcony staterooms aren't exceptionally large, but there is good storage space.
The poolside scene is jumping with activity during days at sea. The promenade area is great for walking. But for more intense workouts, you might want to hit the gym during off-peak hours. As a reward, enjoy authentic Italian espresso and chocolate treats at Bar dei Poeti, the coffee bar.
