MSC POESIA in Lisbon






Built in 2008 by AKER at Saint-Nazaire, "MSC POESIA" was the flagship of MSC CRUISES for a brief spell until the MSC FANTASIA entered service in December of the same year. POESIA was christened by Sophia Loren at Dover on the 5th of April 2008, she was the first ship of the fleet to be named outside Italy. In January of this year, the ship was all over the news when she ran aground at Freeport in the Bahamas, the incident was of no consequence to the passengers and crew on board as well as for the ship, she was pulled out with the help of tugs during high tide. "MSC POESIA" is 93.330 GRT, has a top speed of 23 knots and can accommodate 2500 passengers.
