Upcoming: Touring the MSC Poesia

Good morning cruisers! I am excited to announce that on December 27th, thanks to the generosity of MSC Cruises, I will be touring the beautiful MSC Poesia in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

On December 27th, I will begin my tour with embarkation, and then proceed to touring the  beautiful MSC Poesia. While onboard  I will have the opportunity to check out all the passenger areas, staterooms, and really learn what cruising with MSC is all about. I will take hundreds of photos to share with you both here on Cruise Currents and on our Facebook page.

I am really looking forward to touring  the MSC Poesia and for my short return to my second home, South Florida. Make sure to check back after the 27th for my full review and photo gallery!
