Things to remember: On board the MSC Poesia
Here are a few helpful things to keep in mind as you plan your holiday on the MSC Poesia:

  • Families are more than welcome, with youth programmes to cater for children aged 3 to 17 years.
  • When sailing Europe, the currency is the Euro. In South America, it is the US Dollar.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
