We chose this MSC Cruise (our first with MSC) as the dates suited and the ports were very appealing to us. As this was our 8th cruise (enjoyed all 7 previous cruises with RCL (5), Carnival (1) and Princess (1)) we understood that all ... Read more

The only thing that was satisfying on this ship was the overall appearance of the boat. Service was terrible. Ports were so far from shore. Food was not the greatest. Activities-not too many on board. Me and my Fiance took this cruise ... Read more

YC1 suite 15032 on MSC Preziosa. This suite is the last on the starboard side on deck 15, nearest the lifts (although no noise issues at all) and immediately to the right on entering the Yacht Club. You can only access the Yacht Club on ... Read more

Overall the ship itself is fine. The amenities are plentiful. The room is adequate (not large but not terribly small either). Here's a breakdown of each item: Itinerary - Excellent ports of call. They were all about the same, ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it went to ports of call that we had not been to previously, but our primary reason was to attend the Monaco Grand Prix which was an add on package to this cruise. The cabin was clean and comfortable and very ... Read more

Long awaited couples holiday. Issues unfortunately started even before we got on the ship. Total disorganisation at the luggage drop off at the port, no direction from the MSC staff. The MSC cruise registration person that we met took our ... Read more

The ship was very clean, easy to get around. I did not hit any of the amenities like the pools or the spa. Lots of bar areas. There was a french bakery in the shops area that my kids LOVED. On and off the ship was efficient and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it matched up with a stay in the South of France. It was supposed to be a special holiday to celebrate our Silver Wedding. The ship itself was beautiful, but it's a pity MSC don't match this with service! We ... Read more

This is our 2nd cruise. Our first was with Celebrity. The itinerary means that guests are disembarking at many of the stops, and new guests are getting on. We had a balcony room on deck 12 with an allegresimo drinks package. The ... Read more

My experience aboard preziosa msc has been fantastic. Despite going completely full, he did not give the feeling of massification and other shipping. Fantastic food in the buffet much choice, and even a children's menu with ... Read more

Even before we got on board we were bombarded with staff asking us to book excursions, spa treatments etc. Embarkation itself was speedy, this is the one and only time! The ship is stunning, our cabin at first glance was nice. Then we saw ... Read more

This was clearly the worst cruise we have ever taken of the 15 or so across 6 or 7 cruise lines. First, the ship itself was beautiful. But it ended there. The food was worse than the airline on which we returned home. Portions were ... Read more

Preziosa was only launched in 2013, so very sparkly shiny and new, huge ship and lots of facilities, most areas kept clean and up dated, sadly from the moment you board you are bombarded with multiple offers of purchasing drinks/tour ... Read more

She is a beauty in a very Italian, Cinecitta style. If you like glitzy and glam, Preziosa is your perfect match. Of course the ship is new, so everything from the upholstery to the carpets is squeaky clean. Having been on a fair few cruise ... Read more
