This was our 8th cruise, having previously cruised with rccl and ncl. The prezosia is a stunning ship. Lounges, bars, pool areas cabins all fabulous. We purchased the drinks packages which was exceptional value. Premium branded drinks and excellent cocktails all included.

The biggest disappointment to us was the food in the mdr. It was totally unacceptable. Either tasteless or very salty?85% of the food we had was barely warm. Service hit and miss and very rushed. There was very little meat on offer and what we did have was very poor quality. The buffet area was chaos at best. Food poor and badly presented. Entertainment was very amateurish. Shows and musicians were very poor. The staff were on the whole fairly pleasent but a few were either rude or totally uninterested. The itinery was good, especially Istanbul, Dubrovnik and Venice.

We have always enjoy the whole cruise experience particularly our meals and entertainment. We failed to get either with msc. We would never choose msc ever again.

Cabin Review

Cabin inside

Good position mid ship. Spacious and lots of storage. Bed very comfortable.
