The MSC Poesia is a beautiful craft Italian cruise ship.  It is one of three ships in the MSC Musica class. The stylish ship features showy textures, glittery finishes, and contemporary color choices. Making it the ultimate in luxury cruise ships.

Elegant Poesia

The starting point for voyagers is the spectacular three-deck entryway, call the Atrium. Guest are met by contemporary, curve architecture, etch glass, and polish tiles. A stunning water features a two-deck-high backlit waterfall that sits center below the LED-lit ceiling. Design to look like a twinkling night sky. If that was not enough, a live pianist sits upon a glass platform suspending above the water. Everything about the Poesia screams luxury, elegance, and extravagance.

Fabulous Amenities

Aboard the Poesia, activities are abundant. Music, dancing, a large casino, and a Vegas-theme three-deck theater give adults a variety of options for evening exertions. The Pigalle Lounge features a show-lounge feel and serves as a karaoke bar in the evenings. The Aurea Spa contains a beautiful Turkish bath and a relaxation lounge complete with a juice bar and a range of massage, wellness, and beauty treatments.

Of course, it is not just about the adults on the decks of the Poesia. Younger cruisers have their own little haven in a jungle-theme dinosaur playroom. This exciting space features games, arts and crafts, Playstations, and more. Children also have their own set of activities such as puppet shows, pizza parties, group games, and acrobatic lessons. An enclosed play area outdoor contains a tube slide and wading pool, too. Guest of all ages is catered to aboard the Poesia, making it a full family cruise ship.

When you book a cruise aboard the MSC Poesia, one thing is for sure… You are going to have the time of your life!
