Fun cruise if you remember to be laid back

This was our families 8th cruise and I don't typically leave reviews but I had seen such poor reviews for this particular ship I felt that I should leave my feedback. We chose the Magnifica mostly because of the ...

Worse Cruise Ever - We Jumped Ship

I have been on numerous other cruises but the MSC Preziosa was the worst ever. Even though it was supposed to be a new ship, the décor was out-of-date, dark, and tacky looking. The cabin was dirty and there was ...

Great itinerary made up for various short-falls!

We cruise every few years based on itineraries, not loyalty programs. We chose this cruise because we had never been to any of the ports before. The itinerary met our expectations, with the only shortcoming ...

Sunny Iceland with MSC Preziosa

We normally prefer Celebrity and Oceania, MSC was an attempt - in summary: Quite ok. -- We live in Hamburg, where the ship starts, so no exploration of the city. Starting in Hamburg was one of the reasons why we ...
