MSC POESIA underway in Funchal

The Panama flagship MSC POESIA seen underway in Funchal, Madeira on 28th March 2012 during a eastbound transatlantic crossing from the Caribbean to Northern Europe where she'll be based for the upcoming summer season.
MSC POESIA was the third cruise ship built by the french shipyards of Aker Yards, St. Nazaire for the Musica class of MSC Cruises in mid 2008. She's around 89,600 GT and has a standart passenger capacity of 2,550.
The Musica class is a slight evolution of the first two built ships of the italian owned company with the youngest fleet in the market, MSC LIRICA and OPERA and therefore the main inspiration for the FANTASIA class of larger cruise ships of 138,000 GT.
