3 Tips for Cruising on the MSC Poesia




Thinking of taking a holiday but not 100% about where you want to go? Are you looking for something different? Something relaxing, with a little bit of luxury? Do you want to spoil yourself?

Go on! You deserve it!

A cruise holiday on the MSC Poesia sounds exactly what you are looking for!

The MSC Poesia is a spectacular ship, which is host to 809 cabins. Accompanying balconies allow passengers to overlook the ocean under a star-filled sky. On-board, you will be treated to another world. Waterfalls, bridges, zen gardens, sushi bar, and spas…the MSC Poesia has it all.

Our Cruise package is always a popular one among both customers and staff. Joanna, on our Cruise desk is our resident expert, and she has the following tips for people who are planning their cruise holiday of a lifetime…

Cruise Holiday Tips

At Abbey Travel, we have a number of valuable tips under our travel belts on how to streamline your cruise holiday experience and make it the best holiday ever! We are sure that once you get a taste of cruise ship holiday-making, you will want to go back for more!

Here are our top three tips.......

1. Drinks Package: The Allergrissimo

Drinks packages are great for cruise holidays. The Allegrissimo Package (MSC) is the one we recommend. This package allows the following:

For Adults (€23 per day): Unlimited wine by the glass (choice of 2 whites, 1 rosè, 2 reds, 2 sparkling wines - 1 dry and 1 sweet), draught beer, soft drinks, mineral water and a wide selection of drinks and cocktails from the bar, as well as take-away ice-cream in a cone or cup.

For Children (€12 per day): Unlimited soft drinks, mineral water, fruit juices, hot drinks, virgin cocktails, smoothies and milkshakes, as well as take-away ice-cream in a cone or cup.

2. Tips

While tipping is not mandatory on board, it is expected. Typically, customary gratuities are added to your on-board account, which you can alter if you wish. We suggest budgeting €7 per person per day for tipping.


3. Make the most of your itinerary

The itinerary of our current offer includes the following ports - Barcelona - Genoa - Malaga - Lisbon - Casablanca - Barcelona.

At each Port, there is so much you can see and do. Cruise holidays are a great way to get a taste of different places. During the MSC Poesia cruise, you will get to sample Barcelona, Genoa, Malaga, Lisbon, and Casablanca.


Fancy a magnificient crusie to remember?


Here at Abbey Travel, we can help you make the most of all your port stops by booking your trips before you go. 

From city tours in Barcelona to a day trip to Portofino in Genoa, or a trip to Mijas in Malaga to an excursion to Fatima in Lisbon…or even a visit to Hannan II mosque in Casablanca, cruise holidays really do have it all!
