TRACEY & HUSBAND IN RIO DE JANEIRO
CRAFT CLASS ON THE MSC POESIA
MSC Poesia - Italy, Madeira & Rio de Janeiro 2014
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on board MSC Poesia. The Cruise Director and entertainment team made us feel very welcome. The passengers were mixed nationalities; the majority being Brazilian. We managed to visit all the major sights at the ports of call, including Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro.
MSC Preziosa Grand Voyages - Brazil - Italy
Our flight from Frankfurt arrived in Rio about 7 am and soon we were in a taxi and on our way to the ship. She looked as beautiful as ever, it was only four months since we were last on it. The cabin was excellent, an outside cabin with balcony, the food and complimentary drink was very enjoyable and the craft classes were very busy and rewarding. The entertainment was quite spectacular, the classical trio accompanied with the pianist and flutist was well received. We look forward to being back in Brazil in the future.

IRENE'S CRAFT CLASS ON-BOARD
Voyages of Discovery In Search of the Northern Lights
We found the Northern Lights! Painting classes had numbers of 24 plus attending each session. We had an exhibition at the end which the cruise director judged with a canvas print of one of my paintings as a prize. I received lots of positive feedback from the passengers which was very satisfying.
