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

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

We arrived early so embarkation was good and speedy, all staff we encountered were smiley and friendly. Very Italian atmosphere on ship, many Italian cruisers! One big criticism and it's about fellow guests, why do so few use hand gel ... Read more
