MSC Preziosa Cruise Review by wernerbeinchen

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

We booked Aurea Suite und as Black Member in the Voyager Club we expected high comfort and attentive service. We wanted to enjoy the five-day-transatlantik and the lovely islands of south carribean as Barbados, Antigua, St. Kitts Tortuga and so on. But the five sea-days are pure horror. All sunbeds were reserved by towels at 7 a.m. so that a lot of people get no one the whole day. Out of sheer need, they bought a ticket for the private sundeck reserved for Aurea guests. And so this sun-deck likewise was crowded with reserved sundbeds, so that the Aurea-guest didn't find a free one. Same in the Spa, where are not more than ten relaxation beds for all users!

It's fact, that there is to less public space on this big ships for all passangers.

As Black-Member and Aurea-Guest we had priority embarkation - but we had to stand in the crowd in Genua.

The cabin was really fine and clean, because of the tips for the roommate. Therefor the waiters in the buffet-rerstaurants have been very inattentive, so that we get our drinks after our lunch or diner.

Neither to the welcome-back nor to the black party, the captain was seen. A huge appreciation for longtime frequent drivers.

As a special gift for the Black-Members we get a Pencil!

Especially strange is that the Black members are awarded the same pin as deserved crew members !?

The Dining, especially the diner, ('impressed by a star-cook') was partially real poor. My wife cuoldn't eat this, so we take Diner in the Eataly.

'We are the Masters of the sea' is the advertising entitlement of the cruise lin. We don't think so!
