Msc Poesia (Poem of the Seas) – 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise

Cruising is all about you, YES, that is definitely true! It is about the pampering, the dining, the shows, the multiple destinations and events and the fact that you can absolutely choose to to do nothing but simply relax! This particular cruise was a CLIA Seminar@Sea (Cruise Lines International Association) but I have talked about Semniars at Sea before, therefore I am not going to dwell on that but just mention that, all went well on that aspect of this cruise. I am slao not going to discuss the Ports of call; Key West in Florida, Cozumel in Mexico, Roatan in Honduras and Montego Bay, Jamaica. Please look up my other blogs about those beautiful destinations because I do love everyone of them most especially Jamaica; but what I am most certainly going to talk about; is this beautiful ship, the Msc Poesia, which is: “Our Poem Of The Seas”as defined by Msc Cruises.  Since Poetry is like the sea, lulling with gentle swells and stirring the emotions, MSc Poesia like poetry brings pleasure to the guests onboard! I can safely say that for most of us we do agree with that because she is a beautiful ship, very clean and well decked for the holidays with all the bells and whistles for the December sailings.


Designed with an Italian flair and elegance that guests associate with MSC Cruises, staterooms onboard MSC Poesia are spacious and elegant and most have private balconies. The staterooms are decorated with attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout the whole ship. Guests can relax in any of the bars and lounges like the casual Mojito bar or the Zebra bar, or enjoy an open air cinema experience under the stars on an immense screen by the pool. If you are thinking of bringing the kids along, MSC offers affordable family vacation where kids cruise free and while onboard, the kids will go crazy for the Stone Age dinosaur-themed play area and even teens are catered for in the Teen’s Club. To be honest I was a bit skeptical about kids cruising on this ship, since our Agency caters to a lot of families with children of all ages; but with the kids go free program and onboard kids program, they may not be Royal Caribbean or Norwegian but affordability could give you something different, classy and a little taste of Italy!


Msc Cruises is recognized for its classic Italian hospitality and menus. The food? Good, the Pizza? EXCELLENT! I am not a pizza or junk food all the time kind of person but I had pizza every mid-day and 3-4 slices if truth be told! Aha, got you laughing now… Hahahaha! The cheese on the pizza was devine, real cheesy and the only thing that kept coming to my mind every time I went for another slice was, how I wish my kids were on this cruise with me. But you know that I will have to arrange it very soon after they read this blog right? They also had the best icecream in exotic flavors like passion fruit, kiwi, pineapple, raspberry, my favorite sweet cream and a mango smoothie that I like to call my sinful indulgence! Oh! Where is the Gym, where is the Gym?? Hahahaha! Simply put – MSC Cruises uniquely blends maritime traditions, culture and famous Mediterranean cuisine to deliver the ultimate cruise experience! They also combine a deep heritage at sea with an enthusiastic, young and motivated management team to present a company philosophy of “Innovation = Tradition”; and our waiters at dinner are a testimony of this quality service; and although I am back home now, but still looking for my very own “Yudi” to serve me cheese cake with lemon tea and hony every night! Did I mention pampering? More like being spoilt! Hahahaha! Great shopping experience too, we bought Pandora pieces and Msc Logo items.


Msc Poesia when in United States, sails roundtrip Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has an itinerary to the Western and Eastern Caribbean and the Bahamas. While onboard, guests enjoy a variety of onboard activities like crazy diving contest, brain teaser, karaoke night, basket ball tournament, wedding game, sexy legs contest, mambo dance lesson, bingo and line dancing which I found very enjoyable to mention but a few. There isalso an expansive, secluded and soothing SPA with various healing treatments and the most private hot tub made to be enjoyed and shared by two! Ahhhh I love cruising, and like we say in the Cruise Industry, “You haven’t lived until you’ve cruised”! I could go on about this ship just like I get carried away about any of the cruise ships I have blogged about but I think you get the idea. Yero Travels motto “See The World Through Our Eyes”, Before We Take You There! Now that my job is done on these pages, what is left for you to do, is contact Yero Travels, so that you can also experience the immense luxury on this ship yourself through excellent personalized service!
