Have not heard about this cruise but have sailed on MSC and will be on the Poesia in Dec and again in April.
MSC is very Italian in it's food and we had 2 very nice cruises on the Lirica.
Not sure what all you would have to do to get on and have a change of a person from one cabin to another. If there is one agent that is handling the cruise I would check with them.
