We boarded the Preziosa for a one week cruise starting in Valencia with stops at Marseilles, Genoa, Citivecchia, Palermo and Valletta. The embarkation procedure was much better than most. People are getting on and off the ship at every port so there is fewer people and we didn't have to wait at all.
The first impression of the ship is that it is beautiful, glitzy, new and clean. It is very large with many bars and sitting areas indoors and out that didn't seem to be filled up at any time.
We had a balcony cabin and it was smaller than others we've had on MSC Magnifica and other cruise lines. Nowhere to sit except the bed and the balcony. In November evenings sitting outside is a bit chilly! Not enough storage space for clothes etc.
