Overview

MSC Cruises offers an experience that is “Beautiful. Passionate. Italian.” and the MSC Poesia is no exception. With the rhythmic sway of samba music dancing through the gentle poolside breeze, it comes as no surprise that the Italian word ‘Poesia’ translates to Poetry. Like a sonnet bringing moving emotion and reviving wonderful memories, the MSC Poesia will impart each guest with a poem, a feeling of complete serenity, and a memory to last a lifetime.

Dining

From an early morning breakfast to a midnight buffet, several dining options are available for you while you’re sailing the seas aboard an MSC cruise. You can choose options such as having a continental breakfast delivered to the privacy of your cabin, enjoying a casual outdoor lunch by the pool from the grill or pizzeria, or partaking in a more Asian-infused meal at the Chinese Restaurant.

Main Dining
Dinner in the main dining room is always an exciting occasion onboard the MSC Poesia, after all, the Italian meal is a culinary experience not to be missed! Traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist is offered during MSC’s renowned 7-course dinner menu. MSC’s dining staff and chefs are highly trained and they prepare and serve regional specialties and traditional favorites made from scratch, which are derived from authentic Mediterranean recipes.

Kids

MSC Cruises offers the Mini Club for its younger guests, which is a great place for kids up to 10-years-old to have loads of fun! The Mini Club staff organizes activities, shows, and games, such as arts and crafts, baby-dance, painting courses, treasure hunts, and mini-Olympics. Children under 3 are only permitted when accompanied by an adult who must remain with the child at all times.

In addition to the Mini Club, a lively Junior Club for 9 to 12-year-olds is offered, as well as a Teenager Club, which is a great place for teens of all ages to hang out.

As on all MSC ships, kids under 11 will sail for free on every MSC Poesia sailing and will have countless options for enjoyment and entertainment onboard.

Dress Code

Casual resort wear is appropriate at any time. After 6:00 p.m., jeans, t-shirts, shorts, and bare feet are not permitted in the ships’ public areas.

A cocktail dress for women, and a suit or coat and tie for men are appropriate on formal evenings. MSC Cruises hosts 1 formal evening on 4 to 6-night cruises; 2 on 7 to 11-night cruises; and 4 on cruises 15 nights or longer.

Gratuity / Tipping

MSC Cruises strives to make sure you receive the highest level of personal service and in order to make it convenient for you to reward the excellent service you receive, customary gratuities are added to your onboard account.

Per person / per day gratuities for adults are $12 (USD) for Caribbean sailings and ocean voyages; €6 (Euro) for Mediterranean and Northern European sailings; and $5 (USD) for South America sailings. Per person / per day gratuities for children are 50% less than adults. Your maitre d’, assistants to the maitre d’, waiter, busboys, buffet staff, cabin attendant, room service, and bellboys will share this gratuity (casino dealers and spa personnel do not share in this charge since not all guests utilize these services).

Gratuities are not mandatory and are at your discretion. At any time during your cruise if you wish to make adjustments to the amount you’re tipping you may do so by contacting the Guest Reception Desk.

Also to help make things convenient for you, the gratuity for drinks is included in the price of all bar checks.
