pt]COUNTDOWN CONTINUES TO APRIL 5 ARRIVAL OF MSC POESIA, THE THIRD ‘MUSICA’ CLASS STAR[/size]

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (FEBRUARY. 19, 2008) – Elegant, stylish and state-of-the-art technology -- these are only some of the outstanding features of the new MSC Poesia.

MSC Poesia will be christened in Dover on April 5, 2008 and will be the ninth ship in the MSC Cruises fleet. Her vital statistics are: 89,600 tons, 964 feet long, 164 feet tall and 105 feet wide. 

MSC Poesia will have a total of 1,275 staterooms of which 80% are outside staterooms and 65% feature a balcony. There will be 16 decks, 13 accessible to the public. She will have a maximum cruising speed of 23 knots. There will be 236,000 square feet of public spaces, 7 themed areas, 2 pools and 4 hot tubs, plus the Aurea Spa, which will cover 13,000 square feet.

Imaginative and refined, the Italian design is the common thread that unites MSC Poesia to her two sister ships, MSC Musica and MSC Orchestra. Sophisticated color schemes, attention to detail and service will ensure that guests enjoy a truly special cruise on board MSC Poesia.

Once again, the newest technology has been used. This enables the entire MSC Cruises fleet to operate worldwide, safeguarding the environment with fewer carbon dioxide emissions and strict waste management. In fact, MSC Cruises has received international recognition for its environmental protection efforts.

Here are some of MSC Poesia’s special features:
FOYER – There will be a festive feeling onboard MSC Poesia thanks to the bright lights and colors of the central foyer with its spectacular waterfall and three bridges. Guests can enjoy piano music while seated on transparent flooring over a large and luminous expanse of water.
MOULIN ROUGE – The secondary lounge will be named after the famous Parisian nightclub. Similar to the Shaker Lounge on MSC Orchestra, it will have an even larger glass window to increase the natural light while offering a spectacular view of the sea.
THE KINGDOM OF TASTE – There will be 4 restaurants: Le Fontane, Il Palladio, La Cafeteria Villa Pompeiana and l’Obelisco (à la carte restaurant), where guests can indulge in the tastiest Mediterranean and international dishes, prepared by the chefs. There will be 10 bars including two open air bars (Mohito Bar and Piraña Bar). On the ample Foscolo deck, la Cafeteria Villa Pompeiana and the two pool areas (Coral Bay and Cayo Levantado) will offer more space and comfort for the guests with panoramic views. There will also be a Kaito Sushi Bar, similar to the one onboard MSC Musica, offering Japanese ambiance, a zen garden and typical art pieces.
ZEBRA BAR – This music bar will have a dance floor and inviting atmosphere. This space will be exotic and inspired by African themes. Lamp shades, flooring, sculptures and picture frames will all be black and white, in line with the design theme.
STONE AGE – Children will play in an area of their own, filled with prehistoric caves and among dinosaurs. The theme will carry through to the games on Deck 14, with a new Puppet Theater.
