Would anyone have any recommendations re; the excursions offered on the MSC Poesia? In particular, I would like info re; Casablanca, Malaga, and Genoa. On a previous cruise (MSC Musica out of Venice), I found that I could have done as well exploring on my own. All advice appreciated!
I do not think I would go out alone in Casablanca - or anywhere in Morocco or anywhere in Northern Africa. But that is just me. I have been to tangiers and it was pretty scary at first, but also exciting.
Genoa - it is a pretty modern and industrialized city. I can't imagine walking off the ship and not taking a tour. In fact, I did that once and did not find anything I wanted to see. I would take a ship's tour.
Malaga - the real destination is Seville, correct? You may be able to get a train but on a tour you see more and you get a guide. I would recommend taking a tour in all three of them.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
