Baseball fans will have the opportunity of a lifetime to cruise with baseball legends representing leading teams on select 2012- 13 Caribbean sailings of MSC Poesia.
Guests can interact with former Major League Baseball stars as they sail to incredible Caribbean destinations onboard MSC Poesia on several “Baseball Greats” theme cruises.
This is the ninth year MSC Cruises has hosted these popular cruises with a changing lineup of players.
Host and emcee for all of the onboard activities on each cruise is former New York Yankees star pitcher Stan Bahnsen. “Baseball Greats” cruises offer free guest/player activities including a playerhosted trivia game, a question-and-answer session, a guest pitching contest and a lively storytelling session.
