MSC Poesia in Dubrovnik MSC Poesia in Dubrovnik

Mega cruise ship open cruise ship season in Dubrovnik

By  Mark Thomas Apr 21, 2017

Although the cruise ship season in Dubrovnik started a few weeks ago the first mega cruise ship to drop anchor between the Old City and the island of Lokrum arrived today. MSC Poesia, which has been sailing in Dubrovnik waters since 2008, dropped anchor in front of the Old City for the first time this year carrying just over 3,000 passengers.

At 293 metres in length and just over 32 metres in width the MSC Poesia has 13 decks for passengers with 1,275 cabins and can accommodate 3,113 passengers.

On Saturday two more cruise ships are expected, Norwegian Star and Costa Deliziosa, whilst Sunday is a “free day” for the city as no cruise ships are planned to arrive.
