MSC Poesia


Mediterranean and Europe

An ode to beauty

MSC Poesia is our poem to the beauty of the seas, an innovative ecological cruise ship with elegant lines that brings traditional craftsmanship to creative designs.

Step aboard and you’ll enter a refined world of comfort, created to surprise and delight. From the spectacular foyer waterfall to the Zen Garden, authentic Japanese sushi bar and opulent MSC Aurea Spa wellness centre with steam room, sauna and divine massages to pamper body and mind.

It’s the perfect place to unwind upon your arrival or after the many sports and fitness activities available on board, including a basketball court, tennis court, shuffleboard, state-of-the-art gym and minigolf. Kids and teens are equally well served, with their own clubs and parties, a dedicated Stone Age and Dinosaur Play Area, stunning video games and even a DJ disco! Plus there are naturally all the resort amenities you could desire, including 3 swimming pools, 4 whirlpools and a giant poolside cinema screen.

The gourmet cuisine on board brings you specialities from around the world, but has a Mediterranean heart firmly rooted in the values of the Italian slow food movement, as you’d expect of MSC, with every succulent dish freshly prepared with care from prime quality ingredients.

The varied lounge bars offer similarly refreshing originality and authenticity, from the Grappolo d’Oro wine-tasting bar to the Mojito cocktail bar and classic lines of the cigar room.

Whether a family holiday, luxury treat or romantic escape, MSC Poesia is a ship that offers a truly inspiring cruise experience.
