Me with a life ring. This is on the "Promenade" deck, which does not encircle the ship and offers no loungers or views.

Overall Great and exceptional value

Just disembarked following a 7 night northern Europe cruise with my family, So lets get the first point out the way which is value of the cruise. This was £600 each including 2 x balcony cabins, easy plus drinks package and wifi. This really is exceptional value and so I did expect a few things not to be up to scratch at this price point, but thankfully there were very few compromises. I ...

Chose this cruise because it was going to Hamburg a destination we had planned to visit before Covid stopped the world! It was really quite a good experience, the ship, although a bit glitzy for our taste was clean and well run. Dining was well organised, and although I wouldn't describe it as 5 star, was well presented, efficiently served by excellent staff and certainly adequate. Bar ...

Chose the cruise for the port stops and that we had never used MSC before. The price was good, and departed from Southampton. Check in was really smooth and easy, as was the parking before that. No real greeting as we boarded just given a flyer, not even the daily program. Cabin was ok, what we expected. A little dusty from the massive over sized air conditioner. Cabin steward didn't ...

Pity the Yacht Club restaurant was 350 metres away from the YC

The Yacht Club is a brilliant concept, including both boarding and disembarking which is extremely well organised and we had 5 weeks previously on the MSC Virtuosa, where we had found the YC to be a completely self contained ship within a ship, this is not the same on the Preziosa. Let me first explain that both my wife and I both suffer from walking difficulties, we are both over 85 years of ...

Rio de Janiero to Lisbon April 8, 2022 16 nights My first MSC experience was the Opera in 2004. I had a great, 5-day cruise from San Juan to Florida. The crew was accommodating; the cruise director, in particular. He remembered my name after we met. I’ve been eager to sail MSC again, so when I saw a sailing from Rio to Lisbon, I just had to book it. I loved the ship, enjoyed wonderful ...

This was my first time cruising with MSC. Before the cruise, I was a little bit concern because of some negative reviews. As far as I understand, the ship was only 50% full. I was told that quite a lot of cancellations because of the change of route. Instead of St Petersburg, we stayed 2 nights in Tallinn. I had the premium balcony cabin. There's a big sofa which can turn into a double ...

MSC should be prosecuted for 'MIS-SELLING.'

Review for MSC Preziosa to Transatlantic

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Firstly I and tens of thousand of others are being 'MIS-SOLD'. The customer is given the opportunity and often pays extra to choose a balcony cabin or similar, only that MSC cannot be bothered to log the details and given a random cabin, yes we are in the computer age. This is a known issue with Cruise Consolidators and happened to us on MSC Seaview in December last year and the Preziosa in April ...

MSC Cruzeiros Brasil Last March 28th, me and my husband embarked in a so-called mini cruise of 3 nights out of Santos, Brasil. Our cabin was located in Deck 13. Due to Covid issues, we were granted a USD 100 onboard credit. Together with the cruise, we paid for a beverage package. We were expecting an outstanding cruise but out overall experience was very much disappointing. During ...

Review for MSC Preziosa to Caribbean - All

We have cruised the Caribbean several times in the last 10 or so years mainly with P and O, but also with NCL and Thomsons. We were attracted to this cruise as it offered a slightly different itinerary which included Martinique, Guadeloupe and Trinidad. The overall package which include drinks, tips and Virgin flights seemed attractive. This is what we found: Virgin - twilight check-in at ...

MSC Preziosa review: was on 7 days, just got back. St Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, Martinique, St Vincent, Trinidad, & got on & off in Guadeloupe. Re ship: super clean, staff always cleaning, really spotless, made everyone getting on ship & before meals use sanitizer, which was an excellent idea. Layout: was travelling with 9 others & everyone got lost at some point. Only decks 7&14 went from ...
