MSC Poesia

Poetry is like the sea, lulling us with gentle swells and stirring the emotions. As poetry brings them pleasure the MSC Poesia will introduce a new dimension of enjoyment to a holiday on a magnificent and innovative ship. From a balcony overlooking the ocean and a star filled sky accompanied by the sounds of a Verdi aria, mingling with the samba rhythms from the poolside party, an abundance of emotions will flow.

To allow MSC offer the best possible service, they ask passengers to be on time for all meals. Restaurant meals are not available in your cabins except for the breakfast and in case of illness. Generally, doors to the restaurants close 15 minutes after the dining seating begins. Children dine at their parents table in the restaurants.

DRESS CODES:
Dress standard in the restaurant allow casual dress for breakfast and lunch (but never swimmer, bare feet or raggy jeans etc.). Smart casual wear is required for the evenings, and men are usually asked to wear a jacket and tie. There are usually two (sometimes three) gala nights on each cruise, on these nights ladies should wear cocktail or evening dresses, while men will not be out of place in a tuxedo or dinner jacket. The dress of the day, as decided by the Captain, is published in the Daily Program each day. Advice will simply be 'casual', 'informal', 'formal' or special 'theme' dress may also be suggested for special nights.

Formal

Tipping

At the end of the cruise it is international custom to pay service charges to restaurant and cabin staff in recognition of good service. Passengers will receive written communication regarding this in their cabin.
