Cruise Destination

MSC Poesia

The MSC Poesia is a Love Letter to the Sea

The MSC Poesia is the perfect ship on which to embark on your next cruise. This ecological cruise ship is a love letter to the poetry of the sea with its creative craftsmanship. You’ll be surprised by the serenity of the features aboard, such as the poolside cinema, Zen Garden, and mesmerizing foyer waterfall. And let’s not forget the MSC Aurea Spa wellness center — treat yourself to a Balinese or Thai massage after a stop in the steam room or sauna.

If you like staying active, the MSC Poesia has you covered with a number of activities, like basketball, tennis court, shuffleboard, mini golf, and the state-of-the-art gym. Kids and teens have their own dedicated play areas, clubs, and parties. They can enjoy video games, of course, and even a DJ disco! And then there are three swimming pools and four whirlpools to relax in.

The bars and lounges aboard the MSC Poesia vary in theme — the Mojito cocktail bar will have you toasting your good luck while Grappolo d’Oro will immerse you in the wonderful world of wine. When it’s time to eat, you’ll enjoy a variety of global palates, from the authentic Japanese Sushi bar Kaito to the dining rooms rooted in Italian and Mediterranean traditions.
