Typical Passengers

In terms of age and nationality, MSC Poesia passengers are all over the map. The flashy nightclubs and casinos appeal to younger adults couples, while kids’ clubs, video game centres and splash pools appeal to families with children. In between you’ll find solo travellers and more mature couples, as well as groups of friends ready to enjoy the convivial international atmosphere. 

Ship Amenities

Pretty porthole style windows and high-end furnishings make the MSC Poesia a handsome ship, with a layout that encourages a feeling of personal space for each passenger despite the large size. The interior is dominated by the stylish lobby and atrium, decorated with a floating stage and water features. There’s a musical theme running throughout the ship, seen in the artwork and deck names. Facilities are varied, ranging from a wine bar and cigar lounge to a glitzy casino and high-tech Internet centre. Kids of all ages can play in the virtual reality centre, while those who prefer a more old-fashioned way to relax can visit the library or watch movies by the pool. Shops, eateries, and bars line the interior lobby to provide a one-stop shop for socialising. 

Cabin Amenities 

MSC Poesia offers 18 suites, which provide a high standard of accommodation with their private balconies and added living space. Passengers can also choose from mini-suites, interior cabins, and outside-view cabins in a range of locations and prices. Enjoy 24-hour room service in any room, including complimentary continental breakfast to get your day off to a leisurely start. All accommodation includes standard features like satellite flat-screen televisions, minibars and personal safes, and you’ll be able to adjust the air conditioning to your liking. 

Dining Options

Dining is one of the greatest pleasures onboard MSC Poesia, with a wide range of high-quality eateries and specialty cafes. Start your dining journey in the main restaurants, which serve Mediterranean-inspired fare with an ocean view. When you’re in the mood to mix it up a bit, head to Kaito to enjoy Japanese cuisine, or the onsite Tex-Mex restaurant for all the fresh flavours of Mexico. There’s also a Wine Bar with premium vintages paired with regional cheese and ham, or the cheerful buffet service of Vila Pompeina Cafeteria. Casual cafes are scattered throughout the ship’s public areas, where you can indulge in flaky pastries and Segafredo coffees. 


When the sun sets, the ship heats up with a range of parties, shows, and functions. Chill out by the swimming pool to watch a movie on the big screen, or dance the night away to a live band at the Zebra Bar and Lounge. The Teatro Carlo Felice is the main show lounge on MSC Poesia, serving as a delightful hub for the daily entertainment programming. From comedy routines to cabaret acts, there’s always something different happening here! 

Sports and Wellness

It wouldn’t be a cruise without the chance to relax at a day spa, and this one is run by Italian spa specialist OceanView. The Poesia Health Centre includes treatment rooms where you can treat yourself to a massage or skin-smoothing beauty ritual. There’s also a thermal suite with steam rooms, aromatherapy and saunas, as well as a high-tech gym to keep your muscles toned. If you prefer outdoor athletics, take advantage of onboard sports facilities like the tennis court and jogging track. Table tennis, shuffleboard, and mini-golf round out the options on deck!
