After reading so many negative reviews of the MSC Preziosa, our entire family felt that we have to share our great onboard experience. We boarded the ship in Genova, a quick and effective process which was started even earlier than announced. The rooms were also ready early and our cruise cards perfectly prepared in the cabins. The Preziosa is a big ship but well designed and the signage ...

Choose a short cruise as a break between our longer holidays. Overall we had a good time the Preziosa is a nice ship very similar to the Meraviglia that we sailed on in Jan 2018. Our Cabin 11011 was a good cabin, great location with a very comfy bed. Nice and spacious and plenty of stowage. Lacked hooks around the cabin having said this I would not let this stop me from booking into this cabin ...

Staff rudeness and experience: -Our party of 6 were split to a table of 4 and share a table of 6 with another party of 4. The other party of 4 agreed to switch table so they can have a private table and we 6 can dine together. After making arrangement with the Dining Room host who said it is fine and he will send info to our cabin. The next evening we were asked by 3 different staff, including ...

The ship The MSC Preziosa is one of 4 “Fantasia” class ships in the MSC Cruise Fleet. It started it’s life as a ship ordered by the Gadaffi Regime in Libya.The original vision for the ship was to include a huge shark aquarium and a host of other unusual features. After the revolution the regime defaulted on payments. MSC Cruises bought the hull, as it was similar to their “Fantasia” Design ...

New Zealand couple, first trip to Europe. First MXC cruise. We loved this cruise. Excellent value for money. We were Fantasicia class. Our room: 11189, balcony port side. Spacious, modern, well designed. Comfy beds, large couch, 2 big mirrors, ample space. The bathroom was excellent with great water pressure, lots of storage. Our room attendant Larysa from Ukraine was fabulous and very ...

We had never been on a cruise before and MSC at the time of us looking offered a great special of $1.00 plus port fees for the second pax traveling. we decided that the MSC Preziosa would be the best choice to travel on as it suited our dates of travel, where it was going and because it was rather large and modern. We got a balcony cabin-Fantastica package and purchased a drinks package on ...

The ship itself is wonderful with lots of glass & see through as well as really nice interior. It includes several pools and different areas for relaxation. We also liked the various bars that played live music. We chose a cabin with a window within the fantastica level, as it was situated on the 8th deck right above the reception area it allowed us fast access even when the lifts were too busy ...

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 this deck via your cruise card and need to turn left along the corridor past the suites towards the central concierge area and Top Sail lounge at the bow of the ...

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 easy. How was the service & food? I had read some concerns regarding pushy people at embarkation and sullen staff. This was NOT my experience. Everyone was ...
