Jam Cruise 8

January 3-8, 2010 • MSC Poesia

Ft. Lauderdale • Ocho Rios, Jamaica • Georgetown, Cayman Islands

Jam Cruise 8 sailed on the newest addition to the MSC fleet: the Poesia, which of course means poetry. We like to call her the Queen of the Seas. True to her name, she cascaded the decks with large balcony cabins and delicately glided out to sea while we visited the beautiful countries of Jamaica & the Cayman Islands. The pool deck was filled with dancers who celebrated life and music as STS9, The Word, Maceo Parker, Dweezil Zappa and 23 other incredible acts blew our minds.
